Nightime is the Right Time...a-DYNAMITE!

Here is a car window with a sticker that says "gravel rocks".

Tonight was so great. I didn't have to drive anyone anywhere. Not even once. I ran my six mile route, and made dinner. I got to do my hour of cleaning, dance like an idiot around Coadster while she did her homework AND make strawberry/banana/orange juice smoothies. I feel a million times better just having that little extra at-home time.

Here is another artsy shot that A. took of the colored lights on the dance floor where we did karaoke.

I love how fast the weekdays go when there are only 4 days in them. I also love that I have 5 more weeks like this on the way. Hooray!

Work has been really busy this week. All the colleges and high schools are sending us their final transcripts, and everyone wants us to make their decision first. My favorite line is, "We'll try to make a decision as soon as possible, but a lot of other people have all waited until the last minute to apply too. So, we have to review them in the order they were received..." Let me tell you. People love hearing that one.

This weekend should be another crazy one. I have to race home, shower, get ready and head to my friend Gomez's wedding. She's from the same town where I went to high school and her dad was my brother's swim coach. I didn't meet her until last year. Small world. I'm sure it will be a lot of fun, but a little more hectic than I like to be on a Friday evening. Saturday, I have to get Coadster to soccer practice by 1o. She's going to the Quad Cities to DJ a wedding and isn't sure if she'll come home that night or the next day. Stinky has a concert to go to on Friday night. Some local boy makes good pop star named Jason Reeves. He went to their high school, so I don't know if tweens and high school girls all over the country think he's dreamy, or if it's just the girls here.

Anyway, I guess that's all I got for you tonight. Let me know your plans. Will you be attending or working at any weddings?

No weddings. One funeral thing... crap! (They don't serve champaign at funerals. Guess I'll have to go home and make something good... maybe a black russian? Then it will get better.

Churlita,
I'm on call for the weekend: sorta like married to the job. However, then I'm off for the summer.
Holy smokes, I haven't had a summer off since I was thirteen.

I love the colorful artsy shots and the fact that you danced around Coadster while she did her homework.

My brother gave me a noogie once when I was working on homework over at his place once. Then he walked off all happy saying, "Damn I love bugging my little sister." He was very happy that day, the Cleveland Browns were winning.

Yum, I want one of your smoothies!! I am working at a German fest this weekend...it's kind of like a wedding, because I am dressing up (in a dirndl) and there will be lots of drinking...

Have fun at the wedding!

It really is amazing what a little down time can do, isn't it?
Have fun at the wedding!
My weekend is all about work (Sat) and anything but work (Sun) I can work with that.

Let me tell you. People love hearing that one.My ex used to keep a sign on her desk that said "Your lack of planning does not constitute my emergency." Of course, my son and I laugh about this, because she regularly calls me for favors because of things she neglected to take care of until the last minute.
