Quote lynnw: Hi Hot Pink...we're having quite a storm, started out as rain and wind but the thunder and lightening has moved in now. I had a hair appointment after work to get a few streaks put in; also trimming some. The girl was one Amy use to babysit for and she really did a good job. She may be my new hairdresser. Anyway, when I got in, the rain was blowing in the windows. My husband was out in his little building.
Guess that knocks out any games tonight. I wasn't going last night but Amy's husband and a friend were working on Eddie's little building and he didn't go and I hated to think of the boys playing and no one watching them. Amy was going to alternate games so I went. Her husband and a friend have gone to meet his parents halfway and get his sister's truck. Amy said they can't stand to keep it and I can understand that. Anyway, Zack will get his license in a year and a half so they'll need something else.
I was afraid I'd have to do those other 6 boxes of strawberries but the manager sent them to the other school. They didn't do any last week so it was only right.
I do hope your son gets the job at the golf course. With summer comming up, there'd be plenty of work.
Today is Will's 13th birthday and we have to go down to take his gift. He's having a party on Saturday but I'm not staying from 5-9. We'll go and eat (they're roasting hot dogs) and leave.
I'm having frozen spaghetti so I need to go get it out. See you later
- We had a t'storm earlier and it has brightened up a bit. But, they say we may have more storms tonight. Kept the kids at my mom's today and they were not too bad, thank goodness. But, I do wish they actually listen when I tell them to do (or not to do) something. I keep telling them adults wouldn't get upset with them if they would listen. But, of course, they didn't listen. When I was their age(s), I already knew to say "Yes, sir, no sir, yes ma'am, no ma'am" when my folks spoke to me. It sure isn't that way these days, which is sad. Every child should be taught good manners, so I'm going to work hard to do just that with them.
My mom won't have to work the rest of this week and says she won't work too much more before school ends. She also said next year she may just work until the Christmas holiday and then quit. She will be 80 in November, so I think it's time she stopped working so much and so hard. That job really wears her out.
Thomas had to work in the rain again today (he did yesterday as well). Seems some landscape companies don't care if it's raining or not. If my boy gets struck by lightning during a storm when they're working, that place is going to hear from me!
So glad you like the new hair stylist and hope you will keep liking her work. I know it makes a HUGE difference when you get a good haircut and style. I find my head feels really good when I do...does that make sense to you?
Sassi just jumped on my shoulder and is watching the computer screen while I type. I swear she looks mesmerized sometimes when she's watching it. Well, just had to put Sassi on the floor since she decided to nibble, then swat my face. Little Stinker hasn't learned what "NO, DAMMIT!" means yet.
That year and a half before Zack gets his license is going to go by very quickly. Before everyone knows it, he's going to be asking to borrow the car practically every night of the week. But, it will be great that he can help taking everyone to/from practices and games.
Food Lion had whole chicken breasts on sale today, so I got a pack for dinner tonight. This time I'm going to make those scalloped potatoes I had promised Christopher on Monday, and I'm going to have the leftover cornbread dressing and gravy. While I was in Food Lion, I saw that Butterball makes hotdogs now, so I may get some tomorrow night for dinner. We don't have them often; but, when we do, they are always good.
Please wish Will a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY from me. I hope he's had a great day. I remember when my boys turned 13. It was as though an alien entity entered their bodies because they seemed to change overnight. Hope he'll have a fun party Saturday evening.
Well, I'm going to go turn the oven off and get the chicken breasts in. Hope you are all doing well and will have a great evening. Take care.
