Batting Zero

What a worthless day yesterday turned out to be!

I got off work early (noon) thinking youngest daughter and I would get a bunch of stuff done, but the planets weren’t aligned, or some such thing. Everything we tried to do was a big fat ZERO! We went to the florist to see if she had wedding estimate done yet (was supposed to have it in a week – it’s been a month). Also, I’m looking for some dried lavender in a swag or wreath. Of course, when I’m NOT looking for it, everyone has it. Now I can’t find it. The florist closed at noon. Why? Who knows. But it was a handwritten note, so not the norm. Then, across the street to the bridal store to make sure her dress got ordered. Closed at noon on Mondays. Who knew. To a well-known gift shop on Grand Avenue where we found some cute things, but when I went to buy something there was no clerk to be found. Anywhere! So, after waiting awhile with a bunch of elderly ladies who were also milling about, I gave up – put my selections back and we left. Went to the library – a non-event. Then to Mary Kay’s florist – again, no luck. They had some fake lavender and sage in loose bunches, but it was $20 for a very small sprig! No way! We’d been going to a movie, but couldn’t find anything we really wanted to see. Didn’t have lunch because we weren’t hungry enough to decide what we wanted or where we wanted to go. Ended up getting groceries and going home. Whoo-haa! What an exciting afternoon off!

This morning I woke with amigraine and didn’t come to work until late morning. I think it’s the full moon. It’s been keeping me awake the past couple of nights it is so bright. I may have to break down and put some blinds up after all – the sheers just aren’t doing the trick.

Quiet Sunday

Youngest son got 3rd place racing last night.

Pretty quiet today. Youngest daughter and fiance were out the door at 5:30 a.m. to go help at a bike race in Colo. They were home and back in bed by noon.

Youngest son came to get mower today. He was going to mow awhile, then he and girlfriend were supposed to go to her folks and he was going to finish when he got home. Hubby misunderstood and thought he was bringing back mower before they went to her folks. Well, that went over like a lead balloon. After listening to Hubby yell at son on the phone, I went over and brought it back for him. Peace.

Cooked pork chops for supper. Good. All in all, a pretty quiet day.


Another exciting Saturday night. A co-worker is having a party, but I just can’t get excited about going by myself. Guess it’s that old “anti-social” thing kicking in again. Hubby and MIL went to the races. Youngest daughter and fiance went out. Older son went to LeMars this afternoon for the rest of the weekend.

Number one daughter and husband came last night to pick up grandson. I’d picked him up from Kid’s Club and he was to stay overnight, but when I woke yesterday morning I’d done something to my wrist and I couldn’t move it without it hurting, it was weak, and very painful – like a sprain. I iced it, though not swollen, then bandaged it. Doctors’ office was short-staffed, so said to call this morning at 8 and they’d try to get me in, so thought my daughter should pick him up last night to avoid an early morning. When I woke this morning, it was a bit better so decided to be cheap and not call the doc. Will wait a couple more days and see how it feels.

Except for cleaning house, laundry, getting groceries and washing the back deck, I’ve been very unproductive today.

Saw both chipmunks at once! There really ARE two of them! That’s my excitement for the day…

The Beginning

Oh MY! Well, we’re off to a start now, aren’t we? I’ve read enough of these to think I could possibly have something to add. Perhaps I’m being a bit bold to assume someone could want to read something I’ve rambled on about in my head. Guess if they don’t, they’ll go off and do something else, huh?
