Dogs. I probably talk about them too much. Especially to you non-dog people. But I always feel myself smile when I see the utter happiness Lisi has when I (or we) come home. Doesn't matter if we've been gone for five minutes, five hours, or five days. She's just plain happy to see her family again. I think people should be a bit more like that. Enthusiasm is contagious.
Made a meal last night that had the word 'casserole' as part of the menu. I should know better. Quite frankly, my family doesn't like casseroles of any kind really. Which is a shame. Anything gooped up with a soup base with vegetables, meat, and something else mysterious never goes over well. The Chairman (who I might add is wonderful at giving compliments if they are deserved) ate his meal quietly.... it's funny in hindsight.
If anyone out there likes shopping for clothes and knows my style, size, and budget, I'm all for you picking me up
Speaking of clothes, why are socks so expensive? Two bucks/pair for kids' socks. And... we seem to be needing new ones around here too often. Ugh.
Yesterday, I worked all day at the school. A combined school concert thing. And I just plain enjoyed it. Really. Sometimes field trips and other volunteer 'opportunities' are real clock-watchers for me. Yesterday was great. I got to hear good music. Be around nice kids. And be busy. And for some reason it felt kinda fun to actually have a "job" beyond swishing the mop around the kitchen. Maybe I'm into self-importance. Or not.
And! I finally backed up our pictures on a couple USB things. Was playing Russian Roulette with ours. Had four years on one of our computers with no back-up at all. Haven't printed anything off since 2008. What do you other people do? I can't decide if I want to invest in printing pictures and stuffing them in books or what. Hmmmm. But I think I would like some to look at beyond on a computer screen.
This is certainly enough. I have two big, pleading brown eyes looking at me wondering when we're going to be heading down the path. At least it isn't raining!
