Got up, did my morning routine and chores, and went to work. At lunchtime today, our office was invited next door to the hair stylist/esthetics school for a Meet-'n'-Greet. We were each given a balloon to pop, and there were prizes inside, anywhere from $20 to $100 gift certificates! I got a $20, and my mom got a $20, though she gave it to me, so I got 2 $20 gift certificates. That'll come in handy over the next few months. Plus, there's no expiry date! There was also lots of free snacks and treats, which was nice. :)

About 4 p.m., :smooch: emailed me to tell me that he was off this evening, so I immediately organized a trip to some local shelters to visit with kitties we might adopt. We did find <a href="">a pretty little female</a>, but we want to check out a couple more places before we commit to her. She seems really sweet and is very pretty and playful. Hopefully she'd keep Tempest on his toes.

I dropped :smooch: off at home and I went to the gym, and watched Dr. Phil while pounding away on the treadmill. After that, I came home to supper and baked a chocolate pudding cake. Now I'm letting :smooch: play chess while I visit the Village. We might watch a movie tonight, or just get in bed and read, whatever we come up with. It's nice to have an evening with him. :)

Good evening all.

I've been pretty busy all day. I swapped out my fall/winter wardrobe with my spring/summer wardrobe and oranized my shoes and jewelry (I do have a jewelry fettish ya know ;)...I buy it all on clearance cuz I'm frugal though;) ) and my purses. I decluttered 4 bags of stuff to go to the thrift store, and to give to a special person. I'm thrilled to be getting rid that much stuff. Anyway, tomorrow while I wash my sheets I think I'll do the top shelf of Gripey's side and straighten up his clothes (I already did his shoes). Anyway it took me all day to do this job but man does it feel great now. I know exactly what I've got and what holes I might have.
After all that was done we picked up Dad and went to our fave mexican food place for dinner. Back home, on the puters now.

Picked up the step son, had a small birthday celebration, watched some movies, let the kids play, put them to bed. That's it. :) Nice calm day.
