You said a mouthful in those two sentences, fluffwad!!
Good morning to everyone (even though it's only 1000 Pacific time)! Once again, I'm VERY glad it's Friday!! Except next week promises to be VERY, VERY, VERY busy!!! Ugh, it'll come soon enough!
Youngest ds stayed home with a relapse of a heavy cold today (he stayed home all the week before, too). Oldest is now losing HIS voice as well, and is sniffly. At least they have all next week off, they can recover.
Dh and I have pretty much convinced ourselves to go to Disneyland on Thanksgiving Day. MIL prefers we all come down for Christmas, so we have no obligations . . . it may be crowded, but we haven't been in awhile, and we want to see the Christmas decorations (they always do GREAT decorations, and I love the "snow" at night!). Think I'll give the kids money to go see a movie in Downtown Disney, as they're a little jaded on going to the Mouseland these days (Kids!! rolls eyes, shrugs). Anyone need/want anything?? Tinkerbell pixie dust, a figurine, a 50th anniversary Disneyland mouse ears hat, a goofy hat, a T-shirt, ? ? ? ? PM me and we'll talk.
Seriously, I'd be happy to pick something up and mail it to you, if you wanted.
While dh was at singing bands at the hospital tonite, I got a call from an old friend . . haven't seen him in about 10 yr! We dated when I was 16 (only 34 short years ago!). We had a small group of friends who attended the same schools (off and on), but remained close through college (through death of a dear friend and various escapades -- a group of us used to go for moonlight hikes --- I mean, real walks by moonlight [not spooning hikes], accompanied by 1-2 adults. It was so cool!!) and beyond. He and his wife live in Northern CA. His whole family (parents and sibs and sibs' spouses) will be in our area next weekend for a wedding, and I'll get to see them all!! I'm so excited!!
Dh and I are going to the musical this Sat nite (Quilters), the one I went to last weekend with my friend (when he didn't want to go
). Since the jazz professor is one of four musicians helping with the production (he plays string bass), now dh wants to go (good for him, it's good he gets out of the house and exposed to difft environments, lol!).
Then Sunday is the last day I can take the kids to the little theater nearby to see a play (we have season tickets, and Sunday's matinee is their last performance of that particular play). In between the musical and the play, comes the usual: grocery store, laundry . . .
Oh, and today my idiot lights came on in my old (1988) 4Runner. So after I dropped oldest off at school, I took it to the mechanic. Later on he called: it's the alternator, $400. So Roy, I may have you beat for most expensive recent car repairs (can I send the bill to your father???
just kidding, ya know!
). It'll be done tomorrow. I had to swing by the Credit Union tonight (after dropping oldest ds and his friend off at church) to withdraw some $$ to pay for it. Ah, it never ends, does it????
Y'all have a nice day, don't get TOO crazy, now (you'll scare the young'uns off!)!! Ah have a hankerin' for chicken-fried possum burgers w/fries . . . ... mmmmmmmmmmmm!!!
