|What's a girl to do?|
I mean, except embarrass herself taking pictures in front of her local 'Bux, right?
I have to say as cranky as I am at our internet provider this is turning out to be a blessing in disguise. It still takes me a good part of the day to feel up to moving, but I now have the motivation to get dressed, purty up and go out. Plus, I get to spend time outside of those same four walls - and the tea is pretty darn good. I could live without the caffeine - but it energizes me to the point I am up for hours and doing stuff. Stuff! It is awesome. I have avoided caffeine since April because I was told that it would cause water retention in my lungs but, so far, one cup of black tea a day is working out sweet. If anything it makes me feel better. So thank you 'Bux for your yummy [cheap!] tea and free wi-fi.
For those who are counting [ Hi Mynx and Tina!] I am wearing a sweater [#2] in that pic'- [it is the white cardigan underneath the jacket] but what I really wanted to show you are my shoes.
I love these shoes:
|So comfy. So cute. Sooooo old. hee|
Thank you, again, for all your great comments. It makes it all worth it to get ready and come out here to know there are wishes from you guys. It helps immensely that I have the motivation of friends like you Tadpoles to get me moving. Thanks.
In other news - Pooldad, bless his heart, had to go to English class with Wallene today and take a test. Heehee :) Her teacher came up with a unique way in which the kids can earn extra credit. They are asked to help their parents study for a test covering the same things that the students are learning. The parents then go in and take the same version of the test along side their child. If both the parent and student score within five points of eachother the kid is given five extra credit points. [If the parent is unable to go in the student is given a chance to earn five points on their own.]
Wallene and her Dad had the best time doing this. They learned a lot and really enjoyed themselves. Pooldad is certain he aced the test. I knew he was nervous this morning but when he came home afterwards he was just giddy telling me all about it. Pretty cool gang, I have to tell you. I thought the teacher was pretty inventive with this exercise. He is a nice guy too. Always a bonus.
Well I am off to catch up on y'all. I won't be around tomorrow because my ride is on his way to get Squirrel [YAY! - and yes, you are all right. I can hardly wait until tomorrow] but I know the child is going to beg to come here on Saturday, so until then...See ya' on the flip side Tadpoles.
Love and hugs!
