notes for wednesday
Firstly -show and tell for friday is your favorite piece of artwork -- from your home. This has been suggested by my sweet friend in australia, whose stomach looks entirely too flat, whose feet are too adorable, who is really too smart to hang around with the likes of me. Nevertheless, I bestowed upon her the responsibility of choosing the show and tell. So. Artwork.
Okay, next, please remember that I will once again be attending an open house, this one at Youngest's school, on thursday and will therefore not be able to see survivor until friday.(Dinner with mom = roast beef, baked potatoes, unknown veg.) Happily, this is the last week that this will be a problem for a while.
I saw the lady who hit my car yesterday -- I waited for her by the school to tell her not to worry, that my car was unscathed. She was very happy (and, you know, I love her clothes! and she wears great bracelets and her boy looks like Youngest and is a skater...) but also a bit upset as she had just driven into a fire hydrant. I had noticed that her car was kind of banged up when she hit me -- now I know to stay away from her. Far away. She drove past us later in the evening and both my boys did a mock-horror scream.
Today, sigh, is all about housework --
laundry, vacuuming, and errands. There is one exciting highlight. My mother and I are taking a trip to a thrift shop nearby. I was there the other day and the merchandise was extraordinary.
Have I mentioned that I have a noise issue? I have a noise issue. I am forever asking for the television or radio to be turned down, the crickets annoy me, leaf blowers send me running for the chardonnay...
last week a neighbor behind us cut down two huge trees. This took three or four days what with the cutting and the chipping and the hacking and the sawing and the stump grinding.
Today? My across the street neighbor is doing the same...
