As some of you may know, I took yesterday off. Not just from work, but from everything! No laundry, no dishes, no errands, no nuthin'!!!
So, today, I paid for it! Got up at 7:00, started laundry, headed to they gym. Oh...and got the girl out of bed first so she could get ready for her softball games (yes, plural).
Came home, helped get sandwiches made, drinks gathered, mitts found (still missing one! ), and treats gathered (I had treats after first game). Took DD and her friend to the game. Came home, showered, dressed and gathered everything I needed to take. Stopped at the Chevron for ice and got to the game just as it was starting.
Four hours later (and multiple applications of sun block), gathered all my stuff and headed to the library. After that, got more laundry going and started some auctions for my hubby. Dropped the boy off at a friend's to spend the night, and went out to dinner. Had DH drop me off at the Chevron (yes, I bought cookies) and then I walked home.
Did my pushups (Day 1, Week 5!!) and now I'm Sparkin'!!! Debating on whether I will start more auctions or go read for a little bit. We'll see if I can stay up long enough to watch SNL...any bets? LOL!

I have a friend that I used to work with...more than seventeen years ago! After I moved to another job, we met on a regular basis for lunch. After I had kids, I'd bring them along and she got to watch them grow up, with two or three month gaps! I don't know exactly what happened, but we stopped getting together!
I decided to take Friday off (mental health day!!). DH asked me what I had planned for my day off. I was thinking of meeting one friend, but said this friend's name instead. DH was surprised and mentioned how long it had been since we had seen each other. After thinking about it, I decided that I would ask her to have lunch.
Luckily, she still works at the same place. Otherwise, I'd have been SOL. I called her this morning and we are having lunch! I am so excited! I've seen her a few time in a store or a restaurant, but not when we could really stop and talk. This will be nice! And, to top it off, she works downtown. I rarely go downtown. That means that all of the restaurants down there are "new" to me. Well, except the Subway. But if I have the choice of a Thai restaurant (that my family would NEVER go to) or Subway, I'm not wasting my trip downtown on a samich! LOL! Lunch can be an adventure!
BTW, my other "big" plans for tomorrow? Sleep in. Exercise. Read my book. And, if I read my book correctly, that will lead right into a nap! Yep, that's it! That's my big day. Spark y'all tomorrow!

Here in Southern Idaho, we have had a fairly mild winter. Since I live in a valley (and other meteorological things I don't pay attention to), we generally have very mild weather. But, we do have all four seasons. At least we DID...until this year.
I swear that I am sitting in my house with jeans, a long sleeve tee and a sweatshirt and I'm still cold! (Of course, the heat is turned off, but don't get into the details!) Every softball game I've gone to for DD, I've worn at least two layers (usually 3 or 4), taken at least one blanket and still been cold! High today, 51. I should be complaining about the heat by now!!! LOL!!
This weekend, highs in the 80's. I am not complaining about that. I am complaining that it is going to jump from 60-something to 80-something in three days. Why can't it jump in one day instead? I want to be warm!!!!
Okay, I'm done whining...well done whining about the weather....for now!
