friday 9.4


It's foggy this morning. Outside and inside my head. The fog makes everything louder. Including the neighbors 4 houses down who sound like they are in my driveway.

I am still have bad ankle pain especially in the morning. So I stayed home and I made a couple of cards this morning. I could really get used to be just a housewife again. Can one be a housewife if one is a widow? Am I a housewidow?


I set up an alltop page thinking it might be better than the blog reader. But I can only see a text brief and no images. I think I'll stick with google reader. But I need to prune some blogs. I can't get through all of it.

I was trying to figure out what to wear today. I prefer my wrap skirts but I already wore them Wednesday and Thursday and I only have 2. I looked in my wardrobe and found 3 chino skirts I had forgotten about. And they fit!

Yesterday I got a refill of tea for $.54. Today the refill was free! This make better economic sense that buying a venti.


I am early to pick up Andy.

Oh man! He gets so excited to leave early and his teacher just eggs him on. The poor boy needs new shoes!

Now we are real early for Ryan.

Crud! I jinxed myself. I add to this post while at Barnes & Noble. The last thing I typed was that it just figures that now I have an iPhone, the wifi works. I went to save my post and the wifi hiccupped and I lost it. I actually thought the whole thing was lost but it turns out it was just the update. OK so...


Ryan was not let out very early. In fact, just as we got ready to leave, they stuck a stop sign in front of our car. This is to allow the pre-schoolers, walkers and bike-riders extra time to get out. The car loop runs along side the sidewalk and if a kid should slip off the curb... SPLAT! This wait made the boys upset but there wasn't anything I could do. We left soon enough and then got to the salon too early.







We walked around the back by the pond but it was hot in the sun. So we waited inside. It was Dana, her client, and Lori. I set up our appointments for the rest of the year.


Andy saw Dana and said "Welcome you back." Unprompted.

Both boys were apprehensive about getting their hair cut. Ryan did OK but Andy was extra squirmy.


We then made our trips to Wendy's and Chick Fil A then back up the road to Barnes & Noble. I got a chai latté that was very good. I looked through The iPhone Book: How to Do the Most Important, Useful & Fun Stuff with Your iPhone, 2nd Edition since The iPhone Book, Third Edition (Covers iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch) (3rd Edition) is not available until September 11. Huh? I checked amazon and it is available now and I meant to put it in my cart but clicked buy now instead. Oops. Oh well.

Ryan found the new volume of The Complete Peanuts, 1973-1974 and could not wait for it to be shipped. It costs almost $10 more at Barnes & Noble! Good thing Andy opted for a Thomas and Friends: Steam Engine Stories (Thomas & Friends).


There was a bit of thunder while we were in the store. But we made it home through only a few drops. The Service Traction System warning sign came on again. I wonder if it has something to do with the rain. My 2000 Montana had a problem with the oil light coming on when it rained.
