We have a tree that needs to be taken down. DH has gotten quotes from three companies so far. The quotes are crazy divergent--everywhere from $1,500 to $6,000. :confused: He has one more company...

I'm currently of retirement age. I plan to work another 4-5 years. I just renewed my license, and I'm already working on credits to renew in 2024. So really, I could go until I'm 75 or so.

This isn't a concern for me this year. However, back in 2016, Scholastic put the declared winner on the cover after the election. I refused to use the issue; threw it in the trash. Way too polarizing.

Fun news for a Friday night

DH's company just announced yet another "restructuring" for his division. Looks like he stands to lose $250 a week in gross salary. Oh boy.

Yeah, probably for tonight anyway. If it's 62 now, it'll be lower in the middle of the night. I would go 65-68, no higher.
