Tag Archive: Blockbuster Video


Thus Thursday


Don’t you hate it when you make the plan to postpone publishing a blog for another date and then suddenly you have published it? Yeah, the review yesterday was supposed to be today’s blog. Oh well. Live and learn!

It’s all coming together! I have a dining/hobby room! I put a screen up to hide my piano for a bit of privacy. Yeah, they can still hear me, but I am not distracted by folks as they sit in the other room or walk by. And now that there is so much room! I’m seriously thinking of bringing the recording studio up to that room. The curtains can be the background screen or the piano. Trouble is if the family tries to walk through, there might be problems, especially if they want to talk. At least the bedroom has a door, and I can put up a sign. Okay, maybe not.

My company will be here Sunday. My error. I was just too excited to have someone visit. But now grateful for the chance to keep cleaning. And the last few days have been lovely. So working was easy. Still have plenty to do. And I know I will be so happy when I get back from my trip to see the house so tidy.

I have continued my music in the evenings. Some things are improving some still need lots of work. I have signed up for recorder lessons for free on FaceBook that I hope will help with the breath. And stiff fingers.

Guess what I found while cleaning?! My Day Runner. Did any of you have one of those? I think that was what it was called. I found with a little work I could get it up and running again. I am finding the calendar and contacts on my phone get messed up too often. And I think it will keep me more organized with my crafts and hobbies. Maybe then I will remember to get to my Zoom Writer’s Meet? For some reason, I have a time in my day that I forget it is Monday, and I don’t remember until the meeting is long over. Boo! me.

And I found this within it:

Next time I go to Bend I can rent something! Remember when it got funny to say, ‘Be Kind, Rewind’?

Well, time to go play some tunes! Keep cool everyone. If not, have pity on those who live in Death Valley. It should be 134F tomorrow.

For a while now my son and I have wanted to go into Bend (two hour drive) to shop and to visit the last Blockbuster video store.

Many times we have planned it and things happened that kept us from it. Last night we were sure that today would be the day. Then, a year after breaking my right pinky toe I rammed my left pinky toe into the coffee table. Yep, broken. But I refused to let it stop me. I needed to get out of the house and see something besides these four walls. Even if we couldn’t do all that we wanted to, we did go to town. I wrapped my toe. That foot isn’t needed in our automatic truck. We’d just have to stay safe and take it easy.

We hit Target and Best Buy. Then the most important part of the trip, Blockbuster Video. During lock-down we saw the movie on Netflix. I couldn’t wait.

It certainly brought back memories. If my toe wasn’t hurting I think I might have taken more time to get some memorabilia. There seemed to be a lot of business so I don’t think it is going away. I look forward to our next visit.

Regardless of IF/keto I went ahead and had Del Taco. For lunch I do the 8-layer burrito with no beans or rice, extra guacamole, extra sour cream, extra cheese. I also ordered for my dinner a spicy jack quesadilla and a small fry. That’s bending it a bit but since it doesn’t happen but once in a few months I think that is fine.

My son was having a bit of problems with his digestion so he wasn’t having a good day either. Still with masks we hit all the stores including Walmart. I got a new pair of PJs and he found all the things he needed to buy.

The highlight of the trip was the Blockbuster. The trip itself was beautiful. The weather was perfect and the scenery gorgeous. Hopefully. we will remain healthy and get to go again soon. There were so many things I wanted to do but the toe was having none of it.

For many reasons my writing goals have slipped. Today I officially lowered my goal to a possibly more reachable realm, 25K instead of 50K. I still like the story, I just don’t want to overwhelm my senses with something that won’t be fun to reach. I would rather have to chance to go do outings and hit all my fun new musical goals than get discouraged in any way.

I will probably do Duolingo after publishing this and spend a little recorder time. Writing and piano will have to wait until tomorrow. I’m tired!
