Today has something in common with next Tuesday, they both are going to be my 1st work day of the week. I took Monday off. Time for car service and since I use the dealer they are only open during my normal working hours. It will be tough not to buy into temptation and trade vehicles but I have resisted that urge before. I am thinking more towards the latter part of the year if I am going to in fact make a move this year. I still have a warranty and that is my saving grace. I added more refrigerant to the AC over the weekend and it’s back to being chilly again. It’s super hot outside today so the ride home tonight will be a nice test. If I have problems I will mention it on Monday. I suspect that there is probably a leak somewhere or I wouldn’t have had to add anything.
Had a great time yesterday at my friends place. I was late on purpose because they never start on time. I got a text on the way there asking me if I was still coming. I sent a reply back with yes I am at your front door. I don’t text and drive, it’s super dangerous and not worth it. So they actually had everything ready to go but elected to sit and chat for a bit. Oh joy, I am starving. Finally the moment we had been waiting for. It was Brats & Onion Burgers with baked beans and potato salad. I ate pretty good. Then we sat around for a little bit and then came desert. Freshly made whip cream on top of strawberry shortcake. It was good and something that I really didn’t need but I enjoyed it down to the very last bite. This time they had plenty of left overs but didn’t offer me any, which is fine. I left at a reasonable hour, it was just an hour later than I wanted to leave.
Still I was able to get home and take care of the children, have some time for myself and then I made time to sit with the kids. I broke out the brush my oh my the fur was flying. I will be repeating that again really soon, like tonight if they let me. I need to trim some claws as well. Ruth isn’t due for a couple weeks.
So the time comes I head off to bed after going through my usual evening routine. The fireworks in the neighborhood started up about 9p and they were still going strong at 11p. I thought to myself please let it stop I have to go to work in the morning. Eventually it subsided. I suspect we will have a couple more nights of popping fun. The funny part in all of this is it didn’t bother the kids at all. Normally that is not the case. I miss the old neighbor that used to live in back, he went out and actually spent money on professional fireworks. Hell of a show that I got to see for free from my kitchen. That scared the crap out of every cat.
Reality has settled in and I am back at work. Thankfully I did the math on my oil change and I’ve got about 500 miles to go. I like to get them done early and figured with the boss man being out for a couple weeks that I better put my request in today. It’s started out really slow and quiet. Didn’t take but a couple hours for that to break and then it was like everything was a mess. The storm passed and now it’s quiet. After lunch it’s an afternoon of meetings and I will be ready for a nap. That is the one thing I miss is nap time after having it for 3 days in a row. Working for a living is no fun, even though I enjoy what I do there are times when I wish that I could just walk away and I can for 5 or 10 minutes but then I have to come right back. Being an adult and responsible is no fun, I would much rather be a kid again. Shame I can’t call do over on that.
So there you have it another wild and crazy blog entry of me blathering on. Hope that you found it enjoyable and entertaining. Before I sat down to write this I watched some bloopers of Family Feud on You Tube, they are seriously funny. Laughing a little or a lot each day is something that I want to be able to do each and everyday that I walk the earth, it feels so good. Not as good as a Banana Split or an Orgasm but it feels good. Now back to me getting ready for a meeting.
Hope your having a great day and that life is treating you well. 3 more days until the weekend! Take care.
