I am still deciding if I will do that here.  The recent utility bill changed all of my weekend plans to finally start taking stuff out of boxes and creating order and relative permanence here.

So, I am cleaning and looking for stuff to divest from some of those boxes.  There are not a lot of them, and I could completely do everything in a couple of days, which was supposed to be yesterday and today.  The disorder is uncomfortable.  And, yet, here I sit, checking the upcoming weather.

And, I had to come to the computer anyway because the new thermostat was never programmed and I think that might be causing the furnace to go on more often.  That and the new heater might be part of the heating problems here.  Once here I noticed that my documents are a mess, with lots of them not even in folders. 

Ah, not exactly unpacking, but cleaning never the less.  I found some jokes I had been collecting and am putting them here because some of them made me chuckle, but also because it is a way to waste time and not do anything useful.
