Little annoyances here and there but I had an unpleasant dinner with my dh, FiL and nephew. FIL likes to joke and me made a joke that I found insulting. Although I tried to talk to myself that he was kidding, I was not having it. I tried to stay quiet but alas when asked why, I said why. So not in the mood for "good ole boy humor". <BR> <BR> At least my dh had a good visit with his dad. Next time I thi...

I got up slow had coffee, watered the plants and took life slow. I hated missing Ballet barre but I needed the sleep. <BR> <BR> My one tutoring student cancelled and the other finished his summer course.

Without detail, from the day, just know when I went to feed my fish and found him dead I couldn't stop crying. At least I didn't cry over the hair dryer today when it overheated and died in a minute. <BR> <BR> Between teaching in a gym which lacked a/c today and no one informed me of it.

She settled down and I started to breathe again. <BR> <BR> Work was ok and then we had dinner before my committee meeting. The meeting was long but when I got home, the Dana dog was holding her own.

Dana sleeps a lot so when she wakes up and wants to go to the bathroom. I get up with her. <BR> <BR> Ballet barre was good and I ran errands after class. I also accomplished two things at once, got my oil change for the car and tutored my friend's grandson at the same time. <BR> <BR> We took both kitties to the vet and had a long wait.

I managed to get through my morning(and even have an awesome Zumba Gold class) but I was dragging. Did some errands and got a quick nap before work at the college. Decided to give up the fight and cancel my night class. Rest won out over fun and a mini paycheck. <BR> <BR> Steve brought home dinner..aaahhh. Sleeping from 7:30 to 10:30 felt good. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone had a good day or at least a productive one with a few laught. <BR> <BR...

The two cats decided that it was a good time to ask for breakfast. So I was up with three restless animals from 3:30 until 5 am when I got ready to do errands and chores. <BR> <BR> I got a lot done and managed to get a few things done before my dh and I left to see Jason Bourne and visited the bookstore. <BR> <BR> When we came home, I did some cleaning and organizing.

We had a relaxing breakfast and then I cleaned and puttered and we watched Twilight Zone until we left for our cookout. <BR> <BR> Cookout was just a few friends...great food. And we came home with great healthy leftovers. <BR> <BR> Enjoying the music before the fireworks. All the local places have been rained out. <BR> <BR> Hope you had a fun and safe day.

I left at 8 for my Zumba classes and then to a painting party at noon. Right before the painting party broke up, the storm moved and dumped loud rain and hail on us. I met up with some friends to celebrate Friday and the roads were flooded at every intersertion We even made the National news!! <BR> <BR> While at the tiki bar, we got rained in...the rain was super loud and blowing sideways at times. The thunderstorm was one for the books. Finally 8 pm the skies cleared ...

But only 84 calories. Always something. <BR> <BR> I tutored my friend's grandson....some of the math was incorrect and when we contacted a teacher with the online access, she gave an incorrect answer as well.
