You're had no electricity? Ah hell, that sucks. Is that your heat?

The school year only has another couple of weeks to go here, so I'm looking forward to a nice long summer holiday with the kids. Hopefully they wont drive me too crazy. :) On a positive note, we're looking after a friends house while they're away for the whole time (collecting mail, tidying the gardens, feeding the fish etc) and they have a pool which we can use every day if we want, so that will be nice. :)

Oh and something else I'm happy about. The sinus infection that had me by the balls seems to have responded very well to the antibiotics I got on Monday. I was even able to have a glass of wine last night after a 2 week drought!

Family are on their way from DC, house is clean, and I made it to Walmart before closing to get extra toothbrushes (because somebody always forgets one) and odds and ends. Truffles for the pillows! You'd think I was running a bed & breakfast. Can you tell I'm excited? :blush:

Sounds like your running for Hostess-with-the-Mostess, which is impossible to win Just keep in mind it's them, not you. ;)

In truth, though, I agree. I've been cooking for a few hours, but everything's casual and on-schedule, and the kids are staying quiet upstairs. And my new blueberry pie recipe is turning out fucking awesome.

Whoever is cooking would be glatt's wife's cousin. We are headed over there in two hours. Just finished throwing the nerf football around for half an hour. Good times.

Life's little pleasure, easy not to even notice. Got a box of gifts I'd ordered from The Library of Congress gift shop. To take up the extra space in the box instead of those vile peanuts, the plastic pillows, or crumpled newspapers, they crumpled up one of their shopping bags. It's a big one with two handles, a piece of cardboard in the bottom to keep it's shape, plasticized for water proof, with a nice bookcase design. Definitely a usable item. See, it doesn't take much to amuse the feeble minded.:D

Lil late, but my new job. Its been fantastic helping people and getting out of the high-pressure of advertising sales. It was always something I was good at, but never really enjoyed. Especially since Dan's accident, it was all about the money and that wasn't even there really.
Well on Monday my new boss, also a good friend for about 6-8 years, asked me what I was doing mid January. I was like, nothing planned at this point. He then tells me there is an HVAC conference with one of our largest suppliers happening and he wants me to go and represent our company. I was thinking it was in the Dakotas or Iowa -somewhere like that because that is where a lot of the companies are headquartered. He then tells me its a 5 day 6 night event at an all expenses paid resort in Cancun! Totally floored me. I'm still not sure I believe him even though I got my flight info this morning.
