I am back! I will Spark mail you. I want to go right back, mostly because it is sooooooooo HOT here, and not hot in Seattle. There is TOO much to do there! All good! We even saw an Impeach Obama petition/desk at the waterfront! I never expected that.
The weekend! Not much planned! I'm going to see Barry Manilow at Chesapeake Arena Sat. night, Marc was given seats in the company box, should be fun, my first time for a concert there since we have lived here. I bet everyone is OLD. "looks like we made it..." SOOOOOOOOO cornball!
I can't believe it is Wednesday already. We heaved a collective sigh of relief when graduation was finally over....Gabrielle is more mature than the average kid and is very glad for high school to be in the rear window so to speak. Me too! I can leave behind some people I would rather not see all the time, lol! I don't care what they think now!
We (Gab and I) are going to list lots of stuff on ebay this week. Hopefully some will sell to make college spending money out of old clothes and unwanted stuff.
I am fully with you now! I know today is DAD DAY so hang in there and at least try not to eat in the car!
Let me just say I'll have a lot to share when this weekend is over.....Mother- in- Law is a stark raving mad LIBERAL. She didn't believe me when I told her the latest on PP.....she's 88 and I just have to grin and bear it! Tomorrow is her birthday (lunch at fancy restaurant Metro Bistro, we all love it and at least have that in common! I will enjoy in moderation!!!) and Gabrielle's Baccalaureate at 5 and a dinner/dance after that at the OKC Golf and CC.....living large...Graduation Saturday at 7pm and bunch of house parties during the daytime, French teacher retiring, graduates have open houses, etc. I'd better get to bed! Party after graduation that parents run(I am doing something re: keeping score of a game, casino games, etc. goes into the wee hours...should be fun, the last hurrah. Off to bed now!
Spent yesterday doing errands to get ready for graduation weekend. Worst thing was the night before we had bad storms and spent the night doing things we had not planned on. Like moving all the crap that takes up space where one of the cars should be in the garage....yes we should know better, but you and I have talked about how that "stuff" builds up! All hail (yes, hail) broke loose, 2 out of 3 cars were in the garage and the 3rd is a company car so if we have to sacrifice one that is the one we choose. We sheltered it as much as possible and it did get some large dents, (think craters the size of a softball) but no loss of windows. We lost one pane on a bedroom window and the roof guy will have to come over and check for damage up there. The hail was huge but not nearly as much volume as the storm 2 years ago. Anyway...I lost a whole afternoon and evening of time to shop clean house etc. We spent a lot of time in our safe room, 3 sweaty people and a large dog in the half bath, lol! Many people lost power so we were lucky, ours is underground so it rarely goes out. So re:food and exercise...I did ok, but no planning was involved. Need to get on meal plan more or less, instead of waiting until 4:30 and asking, "what's for dinner?" I am off to Avenue store to try and find "dressy" pants for Baccalaureate and Graduation! Water, water, water!!! Fresh veggies, fruits! YAY!
