What's everyone doing? How's the weather?

For me so far it's been:

~made bed
~had lunch with Gripey
~straightened up the linen closet
~made a cake and iced it for Dad
~have roast/taters/onions/carrots in the crock for his dinner
~had my nails done
~now I'm surfing the village

Not much else for me today.

What's everyone else up to?

Been a warm, but rainy looking day.I have:
*Cleaned my bedroom, washed the windows in that room
*Did litter boxes
*Cleaned back stairway
*Made no bake cookies for g-kids
*Worked in the garden

Still have plans to eat, then attend a school program for the grandkids. Plus need to go pick up some dog food, have a coupon for a free 5 lb. bag, but it expires today.( I think I can use it, it says May 3 expiration, so I am assuming I have the rest of the evening. Would hate to get there and find out I can't.)

Weather is horrible. We just got finished have a storm and pouring rain. We even lost power for a while at work.

As for plans for the day here are mine:

I was up at 8:30 and did 3 loads of laundry and packed a suitcase for me and Paige as we are going to my moms as soon as I leave work. Then tomorrow morning we are driving to Raleigh, NC to my aunts house and we are going to spend the weekend there and see my brother as well. My mom didn't tell my brother or aunt that Paige and I were coming with her just in case my schedule didn't work out.

I dread driving in the rain tonight but I am looking forward to two day's away from

Wow, it's Thursday already?! Where has the week gone?

My husband has the next 3 days off from work -- those are my hardest days to NOT spend money.

Today's weather is not too shabby. I've kept the windows open all day and the babies haven't gotten cold. So that's a good sign.

It's a great day. This morning I got a furniture delivery. I have wanted a captain's bed for probably 35 years, and yesterday I found one that is Perfect! It has a double row of drawers, and doesn't look like a kid's bed.

And tonight I get to work the shift alone! That doesn't happen often anymore and I love it when it does. I can't do the most odious of my duties (hooray!!)because I can't leave the desk, and I can do everything else at my own pace.

How come every day can't be like today?

It is another nice day here. We got up to 90 degrees again and there is a nice breeze.

~Today I met up with my step-mom to get DD's birthday present from her.
~Went to my mom's office and deposited her paycheck for her.
~Went and picked up our tickets for Disney on ice. We are going tonight as a surprise for DD. She will be 14 tomorrow.
~Made some meatballs in the crockpot for sub sandwiches for dinner.
~Got brave and allowed DS to do his own ironing. He surprised me and did a great job. One less chore I will have to do in the future. Yay!!!

We are all getting ready and will be leaving in a few minutes for DD's surprise. I cannot wait. She an DS have been talking about wanting to go for weeks.
