Not really, but it's a fun title.
I survived our second family get-together of the weekend. My cousin Kevin and his wife, Carol Ann, brought their 3 kiddos over to swim, and my cousin-in-law, Riley, brought his three boys (and one hanger-on) over yesterday. That's a lot of young kid (no one over 14) in one place, but they stayed mostly outside. Riley annoys the hell out of me talking about hunting and youth sports, but hey, whatcha gonna do?
After we all stuffed ourselves with Saturday's leftovers and the kids froze their nads off, they all went home and Mom and I went off to Circuit City (hisssss) to fight the big corporate bastards about the 15% restocking fee. We lost. I lost 200.00, and I came home and swam for 2 hours. Washed away most of my cares, and I was just glad to have 1,200 back in my bank account (laptop was 1,400....1,000 after rebates). I will be putting up some sort of anti-Circuit City propaganda here on the blog soon. Watch for it!
My mom took off work today, just for the hell of it, and we've been running errands. We took Scooby to the vet for a foot issue, I went and got my new bank card issued (since my current dies tomorrow), and I stopped by the office to visit with Rachel for a bit. Scooby has some mysterious foot problem...probably a sharp, sticky piece of grass broke off between his toes, so he's drugged up on antibiotics and completely unhappy.....but adorable as always.
Tomorrow I go back to the hell-hole (library), and Thursday I start teaching summer courses (Tuesday/Thursday 5:30-9:20). Two summer sessions x $1,700 a piece = one happy adjunct.
Today's menu: reading Saturday, swimming if the sun ever comes out, and marveling at my golden tan. Quite amazing since I haven't been tan in approximately 5 years. I wanna caress my own sexy self.
Note: I got my tax return five minutes ago. Thank you Jehovah (God)!!
