It sounds cliché, I know, but THANK GOD IT’s FRIDAY. It’s been an incredibly loooooong and jam-packed week. And today, I feel every bit of it.
This is not good, considering that I still have to make it through today and I’ve got a lot going on. It’s great to be busy again. I need to keep reminding myself of that.
On the plus side, there’s an incredible sunrise unfolding. After yesterday, I can’t help but feel at least a little grateful to see it.
I got home about 6:20 last night as the sun was already trying to make good its escape. I threw my stuff down, changed clothes and ran out to finish the lawn. I was delayed momentarily by the mother who wanted me to see her progress on Pimp My Shed. She had painted all the boards I got up. Now all she’ll needs to do is the trim once I get that in place tomorrow. (Photos aren’t far off. I’ve just been really busy.)
When I finished the yard and put things away, I went in and started taking care of the fur fiends. I grabbed a quick bite, got cleaned up, and headed for Wal-Mart. This was a necessary evil as I was out of allergy drugs. After that, the grocery store, as it was $10 night (off a $50 purchase). They seem to be having those with increasing regularity. Fine by me as each time I go, things seem to cost more and more. I don’t know how families make it. Between the $10 and another $2.50 in coupons, I managed to spend right around $50. And there’s still not a lot of food in the house except Lean Cuisine.
By the time I got home, got things inside and went out to assess what materials I will need to pick up tonight, it was nearly 10 p.m. Yes, I’m headed to Hardware Heaven this evening. How could it possibly be a weekend without such a trip?
