I haven't really been posting actual content, just meme-ing (is that a word? it should be!).

I've been trying to get His Lordship to go to bed earlier than 10pm as he has to be up at 4:45 every morning and it's starting to 'show'. Grumpy is as grumpy does. He wants (at least it's my perception) me to go get in bed with him even if it's only 9pm. That's not gonna work every night for me. I've always been a night owl, he's an early riser. It's a work in progress, but the man definitely needs more sleep. He's be perfectly content to be on the afternoon shift (2nd shift), so he'd be working from say 3pm to 11pm. I absolutely abhorred that shift when the kids were little; it was like being a single mother. No thank you. Now, he doesn't have a choice but to be on 1st shift with his new position as Tech Manager (I think that's what it's called). The hours are set at 6am to 2pm. Hmmm, maybe he needs to nap more. *ponders*

I don't have to teach this afternoon as it's the 10th anniversary of the studio being opened and there is an open house celebration. I still need to be there from 4-6pm, but just for schmoozing purposes. I'm hoping a few new people show up, that would be swell. I think things are going well, she just hired a new instructor and added two new classes. Hope springs!

It's getting cooler here (finally!) and the Chilcoot (CA) Frosty (it's a destination spot!) is getting ready to close down for the year. I think we'll head up there for lunch after I teach on Saturday. A MINI adventure!

Today I'm trying to get some stains out of the bedroom carpet (have I mentioned how much I despise carpet???) and then I'm going to work on organizing my mom's paperwork. It's exceeding the boundaries of the basket I've been using.

I'm off!

I have given up trying to do these everyday. I'm going to finish, but it might be around Christmas! Ha! I'm enjoying doing this and reading everyone else's.

I watched Sister Wives last night. It's like a train wreck, I couldn't stop. There needs to be a "Brother Husbands". Just sayin'. The husband? He's a smug bastard.

It only took me four days to fail the post every day thing. Ah well. These things happen.

I didn't get home from the Candy Dance until 6pm, then it was cook, eat, clean, collapse. The temperatures were in the mid to high 90's and the heat sucked all the life from me.

We had a fine time of it though. My friend K picked me up at 10 and it took us two hours to get there (we sat in traffic for close to an hour, it was that busy). We were okay with that though, as we haven't had an opportunity to yack in quite awhile. This gave us the perfect chance. Although the Candy Dance started as a fund raiser for the little town of Genoa (pronounce that Jen-O-ah), it's now a big craft fair. The fund raising part is still the sale of the homemade candy and the local food booths.

The important part is what I purchased. The following:

1. A "spoon" cuff for my friend K in Alaska. She tried to find one here at the Rib cookoff but was disappointed. I was so excited when I found it.
2. A 1961 dime charm. Sterling silver dime. For my charm bracelet.
3. Two leather cuff bracelets for the Princelings.
4. CANDY! Almond Bark, English Toffee, Peanut Brittle and Fudge (no nuts). Nom!

Today was sleep in, do laundry, pick up stuff, make dinner, make tomorrow's dinner, visit mom, run errands. Mom is good. Still big with the paranoia, the losing of things in her little apartment. Still doesn't want me to throw anything away. I managed to pry a newspaper from July 25 off her table and took it with me to recycle. But she's safe and healthy. All is good.

I'm going to watch "Sister Wives" and then go to bed. Tomorrow is gonna be a heck of a day.

Day 05 - Your definition of love, in great detail )

How can it be Sunday? It was just a week ago Friday and my bestest buddy from Alaska was here. Man.

It was a great visit. It had been a good 10 years since we last saw each other. She has relatives in Tucson so when she goes on vaca...she winds up there. Back in the day (before I was married w/children) I'd take the whole week off she was visiting and just hang with her and her family. This trip was very like that. She just hung out with us while we did our thing.

She came alone this year. Last time her partner, H, came as well. H didn't seem to like me very much. Personally, I think she was jealous. Which is ridiculous...I'm happily married and don't swing that way. I've known K for 32 years so, yeah, we have lots of history. Ah well. K needed a break from everyone and I was happy to provide.

We mostly just sat on the couch and drank wine. We did go out to eat, shopping, the Rib Cook-off and she even came and visited my mom. She's making noise about retiring here, which I think would be splendid.

Work has been work. My lab is still all fubar'd and I haven't had the time (unless I give them free OT - which, no) to fix the bugs. I wind up rebooting the whole lab after lunch to keep them from shutting down by themselves. I know it's a setting, but I have to drop the Driveshield and do each one (of 33) separately. Takes time which I won't have until Tuesday. Duty has been fairly pleasant. The 6th grade (what is it about 6th graders?) is snotty as ever and doesn't want to follow the rules. We are all being "Positive" this year. I'm positive 6th graders are the bane of my existence. ;)

Tomorrow night we are "hosting" (read - providing the food) for The Princelings Scout Troop's Court of Honor. This is when they receive their merit badges and rank advancements. The Heir didn't want a solo Court of Honor for his Eagle, so his will be at the end of the Troop's. I've been so busy, it works for me. I'm just glad he finished the thing. More about that after the shindig.

The Little Black Dog and I both have stuffy noses. It's very painful to listen to him snuffle and snort. If he's not better by tomorrow I'm calling the vet. As for me? I'm contemplating a neti pot. The Heir has been bugging me to get one for a while now. He's been stuffed up for a few weeks and he's been having nose bleeds. I think it's the dryness, but hey. It can't hurt. It's gross though.

That's all I've got. Boring and mundane, but it's me!
