The second game was also a card game. Everyone gets two cards. Each of the cards has directions on it. When it is your turn, you play one of the cards and have another player do what it says. Then you get another card. The last players show their cards. The cards all have numbers on them and the highest number wins and gets a little red heart. The person with the most hearts at the end wins. It moves pretty fast.
It was a fun night.

Then we made areas: a place to put gardening items, a place to put my ping pong table, and a place to put the boxes of taxes. Now I can see and be in my exercise area again. I even found a VCR that someone gave me years ago. It works! I can use my yoga tapes again.
My helper had parked her car in my driveway when she arrived. Many of my friends park there due to a lack of parking in my area. Halfway through our cleaning out, my neighbor rang my doorbell. My helper answered the door and I was down in the garage. My neighbor spoke to my helper but I could not hear what was said. By the time I got outside my helper was in her car and the neighbor was saying something to her. My helper said "you don't have to be so rude". I jumped in and tried to find out what was going on. Turns out my neighbor wanted her to move her car claiming he can't get his car out. As the conversation went on he told me that "You will not park your car in the driveway anymore" because he can not get his car out of his driveway. I told him the previous owner got his car out by doing a K turn. He said he has a larger car. I told him I was going to park my car there if I need to and he could ring the bell and ask me to move it if he found it impossible to get his car out. He then told me that he would back his car out and if I found a dent, well... He also said he would call the police if I parked my car there. Good luck getting the police to come out for car parking situation. Then he said "If you park your car there again, I will hit it."
The conversation just deteriorated after that about the security light on my house and how I am not friendly anymore. Blah, Blah.
So much for being neighborly.

Today was the day I went to the shredding company. I had 5 boxes of shredding. Old bank statements, checks, taxes, work papers, etc. All needed to be shredded. I also had a hard drive from an old computer. They are all in little pieces. The guy at the shredding company is starting to recognize me since I have been there three times in the last three years. We are both from the East Coast and currently live in the same area. He is a very nice guy. I have referred his company many times.
It feels great to get those boxes out of the house. More things gone. The next thing to get rid of is the e-waste. I am glad I didn't get rid of it already since my new cordless keyboard is not working and I had to hook up my old keyboard. Sometimes it is good to keep some of that old stuff around just in case.

There were no new children that were right for me this time. It is will just take patience.

At noon today there was a coyote walking down the street. At noon. I thought they were nocturnal animals. So scary.
I got a new door today. It looks awesome!

Well, I finally turned on my new desktop computer. I was waiting for the right time. Today was it.
The first thing I wanted to do was install antivirus software. That is when I realized my cordless keyboard is not working. I could not get the password to type in the box. Then it would type but it kept saying it was the wrong password. Ergh.
I finally went and got my old keyboard and plugged it in and voila!
I got a text from my neighbor asking if I wanted to come over for Chinese food for Valentine's Day. I heated up some vegan food and headed over. It was a single persons Valentine's day. They had a bunch of food and desserts. There was great conversation and laughs. Considering I woke up and forgot it was Valentine's Day, I had a nice day.

Just one day I would like to wake up and find no news alerts telling me something has happened. Wouldn't that be nice??
