January Eighth

Day two of vacation is almost over…

Here are the black eyed peas and collard greens we had for New Year’s…

Here are the books I got when we went out last week…

The three paperbacks were from the Used Book Store… They were half off the retail price on the books…. so $3.50ea… but found a better deal at Barne’s and Noble… the two on the bottom were $6.98ea… of course the one on the bottom is book 4-6 of the Sookie Stackhouse Series and I don’t have 1-3… so more books have to be bought…

Yesterday son2 went back to college… he has one class on Mon, Wed and three classes on Tues, Thurs… he was hoping to add one class on Tues, Thurs and drop his Mon, Wed class…. so today he sat on the one class and got in but skipped another class hoping to add another class which he wasn’t able to and probably got dropped from the class he was registered in… so now he is mad at himself as he doesn’t want to keep the Mon, Wed class as it has a bunch of field trips… I don’t know why he does this to himself every time it’s time to pick classes… we did this all the way through high school… I blame them for letting him change classes in high school… so he and hubby are “discussing” it right here where I’m trying to write in my blog… the decision at the moment is to drop Mon, Wed and find another class to add to Tues, Thurs…

Yesterday hubby called son1 and had him order parts for the bathroom shower faucet and the bathroom fan… son1 brought them over after work and stayed for dinner… he got us hooked on a new show called Practical Jokers… so funny!

Yesterday I started taking down the Christmas in the house… hubby’s late on taking down the Christmas this year for some reason….

Today hubby called the heater guy and we now have central heat again… only $240 for part and labor…

He also took down all the Christmas decorations outside…

I washed all the bedding from the beds…

And cleaned out son3’s clothes…

And took down all the stickers from son3’s walls and hung up his new poster of SpongeBob from Christmas…

And put his SpongeBob picture where his Star Wars picture was…

Next he needs to clean his room… and get rid of all his toys as he plays with nothing… except video games…

And son2 has not done anything to his room since moving and he’s now back to school after being off for three weeks…

It’s hot in here… we are used to being chilly with just the little floor heaters… we had the central heater set for 65 but our thermostat says it’s 69-70 in here… phew…. hubby has now turned it off as it’s almost bedtime…

There was more to be written but I’ve forgotten now as I have zero retention lately and with all the discussing with son2 about college classes I’m getting a headache…

I’ve been spending a bit of time at Pinterest… I’ve figured out what I’m going to make for hubby for Valentine’s…

We’re watching Family Guy from Sunday… they are so bad…

Happy Journaling…

I'm still putting away Christmas here. Most of it is down just needs packing up. I've moved things to the basement which is the catch all place and have bins waiting for them to be wrapped and stored. Nice you got that furnace fixed and glad it wasn't too expensive either. With winter days here I wouldn't be able to do without mine. Hope your vacation week is a wonderful one!

Poor Son2; he'll get the hang of it eventually in picking out classes and schedules, but I do think it is great that he is continuing to pursue a higher education! Looks like you've been busy getting some things done around the house while you are off. That was good the furnace didn't take that much to repair, which is probably really good with the cold weather predicted in the days ahead.
