My daughter had her first sleep over party on Friday night, which left hubby and I free to go on a date. It was a beautiful evening, so we walked downtown, grabbed a bite for supper, and headed to the movie theater just in time to watch the new Indiana Jones flick. We had great seats and I enjoyed the movie - I laughed through a lot of it. I must say that it's not as good as any of the first three, but it's worth seeing. Though if you're not a diehard fan, wait for it to come out on DVD and don't spend the atrocious amount on movie tickets (for two of us, it was $17!!!)
I went shopping Saturday morning and got a few more summer outfits. I can't believe it's June already! And the thermometer is already starting to climb. If you've followed my blog, you'll know that I am not a heat person. It makes me grouchy and downright miserable. I spent most of my summer time inside anything that is air conditioned, be that the office, the car, or the house. Only when the temps cool off enough do I venture outside on the front porch.
Sunday was my designated writing day. And since it was rather warm outside, I decided to hole up in my basement bedroom where it was nice and cool. I turned on the t.v. to the 1940s station on XM Radio, turned on my laptop, grabbed my chocolate, switched on my fan, and started to write. My cat, Slick, hopped up on the bed and curled up beside me.
A few hours later, I had written 3600 words. I was rather proud of myself. ;-)
Hubby and I took the dogs for a walk, we filled water balloons with my daughter, and then I relaxed on the couch and did a bit of reading.
And now it's Monday already. The kids are out of school, so that eliminated a few miles off my morning commute this morning. They took advantage of summer vacation by staying up late. Hey, that's what summers are for!
I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
We have a big snowstorm headed our way. Now usually these snowstorm predictions tend to be far grander than what actually happens - i.e. we ...
Yesterday I woke up in a fantastic mood. I felt pretty good (you never feel terrific when you have chronic illnesses) and I couldn't wai...
