It’s been a pretty good day. I got up, called my friend Charlene and gave her the number for Terminex because, well, it’s just good for the soul. (only non good part of day-her needing Terminex). Then made some yummy (real) bacon for breakfast. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself with the real thing so you don’t stop eating good altogether. Then I finished writing my mini paper for policy, tidied up the kitchen a bit and drove to class. During this drive I called my grandparents and chatted with grandma about her new FASTER computer which she LOVEs. She was like, “I had no idea it didn’t take 10 minutes for other computers to turn on!” She’s excited. I feel bad for making her suffer using my old computer, but now it’s all better. Then I called my sister to check on her and the crew. Some of them are not feeling so great, so they stayed home from VBS, and Eric is off cracking the whip on some delinquent engineer types up in Michigan. Beat the Wolverines! (wait, that’s football, oh well, same diff). Anyhow, then I sat through a relatively harmless policy class, then drove back to FTW, picked up Charlene and it was off to the Hulen Mall for the Vicki’s semi-annual sale. I was thinking of you the whole time JaNae, but Charlene has been wholy indoctrinated in the spirit of the semi-annual. at least the way we do it. She still laughs at me when I pick up the bizarre underwear and look at it like it’s from another planet! And I apparently have a knack for picking up the one piece of underwear that is attached to all other pieces. Well if they wouldn’t have so many strings and weird holes and bows that don’t belong there… anyhow, it was a good trip, much fun was made of the clothing, and there were tons of cheap purses! excellent. Charlene got this HUGE black bag (like enourmous) for $10. it was a good day. so a little retail therapy helped Charlene relax after her pre-Terminex encounter, we’ll call it. I dropped her off, went home, made pizza and it was done 2 minutes before John got home. good timing i must say. i watched my pre-dvr recorded (hehe) episode of ‘The Closer’. pretty good, and now we’re both doing, sort of, homework. i mean, i will be in a minute or two. honest. oh, and i did some laundry today too. later. must actually get some work done.
