AVR News Update
Hello and Happy Sunday! 

I'm late today. Very late. I blame Patricia Briggs and her Machiavellian Night Broken. Well, ok, that might be a tad strong, but I couldn't put it down! I went to bed at 01:30 last night only because I simply couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. I'm going to be finishing it today as soon as I can get these nasty household chores done. But at least I'm also making bacon.

There is no word yet on the heat pump, but I have a guy coming tomorrow to give us an estimate to replace the system. He may not be very happy that he'll be here right after the shit suckers. Well, that's what I call them. The poop pumpers, the feces facilitators, the excrement evacuaters? Oh, ok! The septic pump people. Anyway, if I remember correctly from the last time I had the tank pumped it stunk to high heaven for awhile afterword. Not looking forward to that.

In other news, the weather finally cooled down after a storm dumped rain on us for about 16 hrs on Thurs. I've been reading, writing reviews and drafting posts and the rest of my week has plodded along at a fairly uninteresting rate. There are now 19 days left of school. 19 more days of putting up with moron drivers in the car rider lanes at school. Will I survive it?

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

    1. I've decided to take it easy this summer. I burnt myself out on tours. Oops. lol It really is hard to believe that school is almost out. In the Fall all 3 of my teens will be in the high school and my daughter will be a Sr. O.O When did *that* happen?!

      Thanks, Michelle! :)

  2. Good luck with the Heating Pump. As someone who just went through getting my inside unit for my AC/Heating unit replaced, I feel your pain!

  4. lol - Be glad you don't have to drive in the same area as my son. We almost crashed yesterday. He's awful. Books often keep me up well past midnight, but I gladly suffer when they are so good.

    1. You need those caution flags for your car. lol I don't often stay up late anymore no matter how good the book. If it had been a school night I would forced myself to go to bed, but I knew I could go back to bed after my husband got up to go to work. :)

    1. Bacon makes everything better. Except maybe sand in the bathing suit. Nothing makes that better except a shower. lol I wish we had a summer vacation! Though I guess not having to get up early counts. lol Thanks!

  7. LOL an entertaining post as always. I hope you have your heat pump issues sorted soon and it's not too stinky after you have your septic tank pumped. Love the bacon pic too, gave me a giggle.
    Have a great week, here's My Sunday Post

    1. Thanks! I can only be me. LOL It was stinky, but not for too long thank goodness. I love that bacon pic! It makes me smile everytime I see it. :)

  8. Mmmm, bacon. Maybe if you offer some to the pump guy, maybe he won't mind the smell so much. It's worth a try.

    Ah, Night Broken, What did you think? I liked it. :)

    Three kids in high school I don't envy you. Good luck.

    1. O.O Share my bacon?! Are you crazy?! LOL

      I loved it except for a few things. I want the next book! Like, right now! :D

      They're good kids. But having to deal with pre-college crap...*shudder* My oldest went into the Marines. I didn't have to mess with college stuff for him.

  9. LOL! The Shit Suckers, I'm going to have to remember that. I hated the two times we had the septic tank guys here in the past years...smells horrible! I avoided going outside because of it...also because you sort of feel horrible knowing that you and your family have made the cul-de-sac smell bad.

    1. It really does. I wonder if these guys have a sense of smell left anymore? *shudder* Poor neighbors. If we must suffer then so must everyone else. LOL

    1. Got one estimate, getting another tomorrow. We hope it will be less. o.O

      Shit suckers should be used in a sentence at least once a week. LOL

      Thanks! You, too! :)
