I need to stop buying stuff for my homestead property lol. I don't even have anything built yet.

I'm looking at utility pumps now... And Ryobi batteries... like I don't already have enough of those. Ryobi also makes pumps that run off their batteries so that is kind of tempting. Reviews are kinda meh though but for the amount of use it would get I think it would work ok.

Water is one of the first things I want before I even start building though as I'll want it for hand washing, mixing concrete, washing things and just general use. I'll bring separate drinking water at first since I won't have any filtering system setup.

I still need to buy a 3rd IBC tote too or even a 55 gal drum, which will be used for water transport. I'm leaning towards a 55 gal drum since I may not always have a truck so something I can stick in the back of a trunk or on a small trailer is ideal.

Now that I bought my big ticket item (property) I think my next big ticket item is going to be a new vehicle. I really want an EV and there is not really a used market for those. By the time I'm ready to buy hopefully their prices will be similar to gas cars. I'll be driving a lot more now that I have this property so an EV makes more sense.

Slept in to almost noon. Lightning woke me up as storms rolled in.


That reminds me I should probably get a power backup solution for my CPAP or at least a surge protector. It requires a pure sine inverter so can't use an off the shelf UPS. Then again for the few outages we get I don't think I'm going to die if I'm not on it for a night. But a surge protector is probably still a good idea so I don't get KOed if lightning hits a nearby power line.

Look at this wonderful site from Ollies...

Checkout that amazing font, and splendid page design! It's like going back 25 internet years :^D

I'm only being slightly facetious. The site loads fast, has js that doesn't need to be enabled to see it, and shows you what you need to see. There's *a lot* of web designers that could use some lessons from Ollies.

I miss old style websites. I still code mine like that today lol. It seems webmasters today forgot how to actually code a proper site and just like to load up a billion JS frameworks and crap. It's beyond ridiculous how bloated sites are now days and how finicky some are.

Getting another sleep study done tonight, just a follow up. This time I shaved the parts where they put the pads behind my legs because it freaking hurt taking them off last time. It's so silky smooth I can't stop touching my skin now. lol. I also can't remember where they put the pads on the chest, so I started doing the top then got carried away and did the whole thing lmao. I've never did that before, it's just so weird now haha.

I feel I just lost like 3 demerit points on my man card by doing this.

I haven't had a pepsi in a while and kind of craving one but I probably shouldn't drink any caffeine today. I kinda pushed my luck with coffee, it was decaf though but even that I technically should not have.
