Shopping with daughter

Monday, July 06, 2009

My daughter was down to three pairs of shorts. Granted, she rarely leaves the house, but we decided she needed new clothes. I took her to ShopKo (1/2 off!) and we started looking through the racks of clothes. There were some really cute things and some not so cute.

Luckily, she didn't even want to try on the short shorts (wouldn't have let her get them anyway!!) and I was able to talk her out of some of the things she looked at. One of the tanks was cute, but an odd color. Plus, it was a little clingy. She actually listened when I told her how much better the black one looked! emoticon You could have knocked me over with a spoon! (Okay, I think that's the wrong saying, but you know what I mean.)

We ended up getting two pairs of shorts and the black tank. Her dad (my DH) won't like the tank, but it is cute and appropriate and he'll learn to deal. emoticon

Man, do I need another day

Sunday, July 05, 2009

Or I need to learn to function on no sleep.

It seems like I can never get everything done. I should be chopping veggies for chili, but I'm not. I'd rather be reading my book, but I'm not. Maybe what I need to learn to do is not cook or clean or do laundry. That would gain me hours per week! emoticon

  


Happy 4th All!!

Sunday, July 05, 2009

It has been a great day. Out for breakfast with the family. DH and I ran a couple of errands and went out to lunch. I got laundry done, cleaned the master bath, put some stuff into the freezer, read my book and worked out.

Waiting for fireworks now. Then, it's off to bed. AND, I still have another day before I go back to work!!!

Thank a veteran!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Groceries at midnight?

Saturday, July 04, 2009

Here it is, midnight, and I still have half of my groceries to put away. Yes, the frozen and refrigerated stuff is done. It's the cans and miscellaneous that still need to be put away.

Why do I have groceries at midnight? Cos the choice was to go tonight (leaving the house shortly after nine) or go really early tomorrow morning. I don't do well with mornings, so late tonight was a better choice for me. Why not tomorrow, later in the day? Because I hate people! LOL!! Seriously, the crowds would have killed me!!! This worked out best for me.

Later. Groceries are awaiting!

  


Felt like Friday...

Friday, July 03, 2009

all day! Even the last hour at work D - R - A - G - G - E - D! And, to top it all off, I still have to go in tomorrow. emoticon

It's 11:00 at night, I have a load of laundry in the washer and food cooking in the oven. I should be going to bed, but not quite ready. I think I'll be taking in a LOT of caffiene tomorrow.

Nite all!
