Yesterday it was warm but cloudy and sprinkling. Today it was sunny and 72 degrees!! As many of you know I made my own weather station when I was in 8th grade and I am a NOAA Storm Spotter. I love weather trivia and folklore. The spring peepers started up last night. According to folklore, once the spring peepers start singing there will be no more snow fall. Flurries can happen but no accumulation. So I will be monitoring that.
My son has spent the last 3 days subbing as the girls P.E. coach at the Junior High. As you recall the former sub left in tears and my son says it is really challenging. Actually he said irritating but that sounds bad. One of the other teachers indicated that one of the girls in his class is a chronic whiner and my son agrees. LOL. Wouldn't you hate to get that label? He is learning a lot, notably that girls this age giggle constantly, are immature, have poor bladder capacity, and have to pee a lot. ROFLMBO!! He had another long day today - got up at 6:30 and left an hour later and got home at 7:30 PM after helping teach 2 classes of Taekwondo plus take a class.
Yesterday I had a lot of errands to run - post office, Alltel, satellite company, newspaper office, DMV, bank, power company, garden store, grain elevator, meat market, Kroger, IGA, Aldis, Walmart, KMart, Lowes, and the tile store. No time for lunch. I got home the same time my son did and he helped me put up the groceries while I fixed supper. Hubby and I went for a walk.
I did finally find the tomato seeds my husband thinks he has to have. He does not like other tomato seeds.
We are working on some projects so I was looking for granite tiles to make a mausoleum for Wheeler and some colorful tiles for a dining room table we were given. It's really nice but I want to change the inlaid tiles on it. I have to recover the chair cushions as well.
Today was a mess. My son called 3 times from work so every time I turned around the phone was ringing. He is sick of adolescent girls and after this stint he may opt for sterilization for himself. LOL. Plus I blew an egg up in the microwave. Squirted catch-up on one of my kitchen bar-stool cushions. Slopped BBQ sauce out of my slow cooker. And had tons of indoor and outdoor work to do. I had to cut back some winter shrubs, burn the trash as it is raining tomorrow, load the dishwasher twice, wash some dishes by hand, and do a load of laundry. Plus all my outdoor and indoor chores. And then to top it all off, when I went to get the mail at the post office my muffler hanger broke on my car a half mile from home. An elderly neighbor lady had some Xmas lights and helped me tie it up with those so I could crawl home. Hubby fixed it tonight when he got home.
Today I realized I was dehydrated as I upped my exercise without upping my water intake. I have some "low carb flu" symptoms as well.
The last few days I have proven to myself that I can achieve my goals if I set my standards high enough.
