Sorry that I'm not sending out graphics today friends, I'm just tired and have a lot to get done. I hope that everyone's Friday night was decent. Work was annoying but went by really fast. As usual I had the late crowd come in and give no thought to the fact that the store was closing. Grrr! People can be so dense sometimes!
Shortly we're supposed to get new uniforms for work. Luckily they pay for the first 2 shirts (which is all that's going to change really) because I can't afford to buy them. But it will be good to have new ones because my old ones are getting really worn out and need to be replaced.
So far today has been quiet. It's overcast and breezy which makes for a nice morning on the porch. No ducks yet, but I'm sure they'll be here at any time. The rest of the wildlife is pretty quiet too. Maybe they're all still relaxing after the madness of the 4th. That's got to be really stressful to them! It makes me sad. I don't think I ever thought of it before until this Independence Day. Amazing how your perspective can change so much in a moment. I spent a lot of time during the fireworks worrying about the birds. They were frantic and afraid. Poor souls.
As usual we have the Saturday ritual of going to the grocery store and picking up bird food and running around some. We have to go by the library and drop movies off, and after the shopping's done I'm not sure what our plans are. I have to vacuum and mop the dining room and kitchen because my Mom sprayed bug spray all over the floor and Trigger (my bunny) could get very sick from being on it. I'm glad she was thoughtful enough to leave me a note about it though!
I feel really bad about yesterday. I did it again. I spent pretty much the whole day on the couch napping on and off. Some parent, huh? I suck sometimes. I was almost late for work because I didn't wake up when my alarm went off on my phone. My husband woke me at 4:30 and I had to be there by 5 ~ so I was scrambling to get dressed and out the door on time. I made it with 5 minutes to spare.
I'm hoping that today we all go do something inexpensive as a family. I don't want us just sitting around the house doing nothing. We need to do things outside the house together besides weekly chores. I hate that my husband and son are both addicted to tv and electronics. I spend my time in the morning online for about 2 hours and that's it for my electronics time. It's my daily ritual and it soothes me and helps me start my day off right. Blogging helps me put my worries from the day before away (usually) and start a new day pretty fresh and clean and clearer minded.
Some ducks just arrived. 🙂
Looks like Aaron has decided to clean the big fish tank. We had some weird white algae growing all over the bottom (from overfeeding) and we have to clean it all out to get the tank healthy again. Looks like one more thing to do.
I guess I should help him, so I'm going to end here. I never did hear back from Michelle yesterday, but I'm trying to let that go. I know she had a rough day and probably didn't want to talk about it.
Wishing you all a nice Saturday! ((((HUGS))))
