I can't remember most days which day it is. Mostly because I think it doesn't matter and then I don't pay attention. I check the display in my monitor (from Rainmeter) to see the day of week more than once most days.
Hard to complain about being shut in here on the ranch. We have lots of space, but the dull sameness is wearing. I've been slowly tackling things that need to get done, despite not having energy. I've been also trying to build a few things. I may actually add some LED lights to a frame for video calls. It's easier to buy a ring light, but the idea of trying to put something together actually generates a slight bit of enthusiasm.
If it works, might tackle this: https://flippedlearning.org/how_to/how-to-make-a-lightboard-for-less-than-100/
You can mouse over the system tray to display the day, or look at your phone. 😉
We went to Home Depot over the weekend to try to get an order we placed 9 days ago. It was supposed to have a 1 to 2 day pickup notification, but it never arrived. When we went to pick it up, it took over 2 hours for them to "pick" 12 2x4s, only to come back and say they didn't have 15 1x6s we had ordered. They had 10 employees standing around talking and the line outside was 1/3 the way down the store. I guess "customer service" has taken on a whole new meaning nowadays. I hope this is local to the store and that other stores are better, but people remember stuff like this.
I stopped by Lowe's yesterday, on whim while on the way to buy food. I had no waiting in line, picked out the 1x6s we needed and checked out with no line. They were even cheaper than Home Depot. I guess I know where I'll be going next time.
