June First Evening…

IMG_0002

Guess who walked in the door at noon today… hubby… the computers were not working so he could not do his training… so he worked on the home computer making flyers/coupons and got paid for the rest of his day… of course I was not expecting him til 2:30… so I did not get my whole four hours of alone time even if he was closed in the computer room… he is now back from the bank and getting gas… I picked up son3 and no homework, yay, thinking no more for the rest of the year… son2 is home and making dinner but needing help as he doesn’t know where anything is in the kitchen… so who’s making dinner… son1 has come home from work, showered and is off to get dinner with friends… we teased that he just doesn’t want to eat son2’s cooking… and son2 who never gives me anything until the last minute made sure to give me his senior class photos information sheet… I understand they must be done during the summer but school hasn’t even ended yet… tell me next week… after the visit… I’m grumpy…

I did do all the laundry today… just need to put it away… and cleaned the boy’s bathroom… emptied the litter box… filled the birdfeeders… watered the plants… vacuumed… ran the dishwasher… cleaned out the magazines, all caught up to June now… wrote up my entries for The Motivation Station for tomorrow and next week… played Fronteirville and My Zoo… and watched Emergency…

When I first started my new position there was a contest that we didn’t win for the department category but I won for the lead category… so I won a $100 gift card… I didn’t do anything really and it was more of a drawing but for the whole region only 8 of us won… I finally spent it last week or so… I ordered everything online as it was Super Saturday so an extra 10% off, plus free shipping if you spend over $99 and add my employee discount… I got hubby a dress shirt for work, son2 a Buffy The Vampire Slayer graphic novel, two bath mats for the boy’s bathroom, me a shirt, denim capri and all the books above… I actually didn’t get the capri as they were out of stock and I gave the shirt to girlfriend as it was pink, not purple and very see through… she likes to layer with tees and tanks so she will be able to wear it more than me and she loves pink…

The books are:

The Knitting Diaries; Debbie Macomber

The Summoning; Bentley Little

The Ignored; Bentley Little

Death Instinct; Bentley Little

The Disappearance; Bentley Little

Key of Light; Nora Roberts

Key of Knowledge; Nora Roberts

Key of Valor; Nora Roberts

Blue Dahlia; Nora Roberts

Black Rose; Nora Roberts

Red Lily; Nora Roberts

These are the bathmats for the boy’s bathroom… I’m waiting a bit til the kittens are no longer in that bathroom as they are making a big mess in there during the night…

And here are the kittens getting so big… at just three months old… That is Maple… she is son2’s kitten but she has bonded more with me… she sees me and comes running, meowing all the way…

And this is Indy… she is so laid back she is like butter, melting right into the floor with her kangaroo feet…

They are both motor boats with their purring…

Asleep sitting up…

The Green Hornet and The Dilemma came from Netflix today… We watched Tangled again last night and then sent it back today…

I had a headache, it is finally going away… I have just been snacking all day, haven’t really sat down and had a meal of sorts… son2 is making chicken and rice so that will be good… I am feeling tired again this afternoon… today was supposed to be a recharging day so I would be raring to go at work tomorrow… everyone to bed on time tonight… we have all been staying up til after 11pm… and then I am automatically awake at 6am… even on my day off…

Holly is still mad at the kittens and Danny is starting to tolerate them a bit as long as they don’t hiss at him…

Remember last year when I was growing seeds in egg cartons but they didn’t make it so I threw everything into the yard just in case… well they didn’t come up but I guess I also had thrown something out from Easter or some time as these came up and finally bloomed this week…

Son2 is about half way done with making the chicken so better start getting other things ready so we can eat…

Happy Journaling…

Nice win:)...Isn't it nice to be able to splurge and not worry about the money coming out of household money?
Now you have to find time to read all of your great books..
