Well I am happy to report that the babysitting job went very well. No crying, no bouncing off the walls and no duct tape. I had my cardboard boxes but we never did get around to making anything of them. We played I Spy on the computer. We had loads of fun. I always loved those in the Highlights book. We had lasagna (Stoffers) and ice cream. The best part is when their mom came home, she looked happy and relaxed. (No I did NOT take that picture – Google image)
The past two days we have had glorious weather. Sun shining, morning breeze and no rain in sight. Ed offered to send me some but – ummm – no thanks. Ike is heading our way and I am sure we will be getting plenty this coming week. Wednesday or Thursday is when it will begin around here. So today, at some point, I will have to go to the store for minimal supplies.
Speaking of shopping, it’s a love/hate thing for me. Hate the grocery store but love buying household items. I made a comment on this to Rambling. She understands me (at least someone does). Love going out but hate spending the money. I need a new coffee pot. I have had mine almost four years and it has begun to leak. So I am buying the same one just a new model. Coffee anyone? The coffee pot lists for just under $40 which means the total bill at Walmart will be about $100. Things just jump into the cart you know. Lil dog usually gets a new toy (88 cents in the checkout lanes) but he has so many right now I’m not buying one. He searches the bags when I come in from the stores to see what is his. I’ll get him a bone or something. He’s just so cute the way he rummages through. Even if there is food in the bags, he won’t touch it, just his toy or treat.
I changed the music to Rob Thomas – Something To Be – the player says a different title. My media player renamed all the tracks when I imported the album information. I tried a few times to change it back without much luck. I know what the problem was and know how to avoid it in the future but I hate having the wrong titles and now I’m not sure which song is which. I love this CD though. All of it. I had another track ready to share but changed my mind. I’m afraid most of the music I listen to most of you wouldn’t like. I have a wide taste in music but prefer the adult alternative genre.
Sara – as far as your blog on racism and dru you followed it. So I’m sitting here listening to some old CDs I burned that has a wide variety. I’m hearing this song by Trik Turner and I want to share a few lines from it:
We bleed the same blood
We cry the same tears
We have the same fears
We pass the same years
We see the same stars
Under the same skies
We pass the same time
We all live and die
