Yesterday and Today 
1st-Apr-2017 11:36 pm
The next set of armrests for my office chair arrived yesterday. Sadly, the 5.5 inch spaced holes are drilled so shallow that I don't think that they would hold the arms in place, even if I had the right screws for a hole of that insufficient depth. So they're going to have to go back too. I have ordered different armrests from a different company and am keeping my fingers crossed.

Today was Katie and Julie's first softball practice of the season. Both girls did well and had a good time. The next practice is on our local Election Day and -- due to a confluence of scheduling conflicts -- both of the lead coaches will not be available, so I will be helping run the practice with one of the other assistant coaches. Hilarity will, no doubt, ensue.

When we got home, Gretchen had asked us to work on cleaning up some of the disaster in our garage. I broke down a number of old boxes for recycling and put other boxes up on the high shelves for storage with some help from Katie and Gretchen. This improved the situation substantially. It's still a mess, but it's less of a mess.

Then I headed out to Home Depot, Ingressing along the way, where I picked up some patch seed for the lawn, because Ruby has been very hard on parts of the lawn, and some new LED bulbs for the ceiling fan light fixture in the living room.

We had ground beef left over from the prior day's meatloaf, so Gretchen and I fried up some hamburgers and we had a simple dinner.

That'll do. :)

Hi! Hope you have fun coaching softball.

How hard is it to re-seed bald patches on a lawn? Do I just sprinkle some seed and give it plenty of water?

Happy MLB Opening Day!

We're going to try a combo pack that includes seeds, fertilizer, and mulch in one mix. We'll see how it goes.

The brand we're trying is Scotts EZSeed. Yes, the instructions say sprinkle, water and try to stay off of it. That, my friend, is the hard part.
