We are going to get schoolwork and chores done this morning. Then my MIL wants to come over and watch the kids for awhile (who am I to turn this down). So, I'm going to go to the library for some books before they close for renovations and to Goodwill to find some baskets for berry picking this season.

I've read in Tightwad Gazette that you can re-use vacuum bags. Just open the end, empty it out, fold the end back up a few times and staple about ten times. You could probably use duct tape, too. I haven't tried it yet, because i haven't fill a bag since I read the tip, but it's worth a shot IMO.

The weather here has been glorious! Sunshine and warm breezes all afternoon. I think I might even walk down to the gym today, it's just that nice out!!!

Today I applied for a position at a furniture store, and was delighted to receive an interview on the spot! I think I made a good impression -- I got home at 5 tonight and received a call a few moments ago for a second interview!!! :D So I'm going to see someone else tomorrow about it.

Supper is cooked and ready to be heated up. I'll do a load of laundry when I get back from the gym, and clean up the apartment some -- trying to do a good ol' fashioned spring cleaning and get rid of the stuff that no longer suits my home -- before relaxing for the night with :smooch: when he gets home from work.

Just an all-around wonderful day!

It's a glorious 83F right now, bright and sunny out. Normally I'd have my windows and curtains thrown open, and the AC off. However, today I kept everything locked up tight, keeping it as dark in here as possible, and kept the AC off until just before the kid got home. My day has consisted of nothing more than cat-naps in my chair with my sun burned arms wrapped in cold wet rags. The kid (10yo) cooked dinner (yes, it's 5pm and we've already eaten - I feel so old... LOL) and in half an hour we have to leave for a 5th grade level performance at school. After we get home (hopefully before 8pm) we'll sprawl on the couch and watch NCIS and House (and I'll most likely doze through both :lol:).

I think I may cat-nap in cold wet rags tomorrow, too.
