Misspellings, Misfortune & Other Dumb Luck!
As my daughter pointed out in my previous post - I can't spell "August" at all! Consider it my brain working faster than my fingers! I should have checked all the spelling before posting but I didn't! Oh well - we have a new month now - AUUGUST! It's a good thing that's not my name (yeah, that's what my Dad wanted to name me - only spelled the right way!) No one knows why - I wasn't even born in August!
So with yesterday being the last day of school, I figured I'd be able to complete stuff I needed to have done for Sunday - that also included getting most of the food stuff & punch ingredients for the grad party - as well as picking up some last minute decoration stuff. I did go to the store but when I got home I had an emergency I had to handle so with the groceries still in the UNAIRCONDITIONED vehicle, I went to go pick someone up. I wasn't really sure where I was going & what the deal was. I was clock watching since Soon to Be 2nd Grader was getting out of school early. Anyway I found where I needed to be & in the whole process of opening & closing doors, one of my salsa jars fell out & made a big mess on the road. I sure wouldn't want someone leaving a bunch of glass on the road so I did my best to clean it all up - puncturing my finger in the process. Grabbed a rag from the vehicle (which I'm sure was crawling with germs and dirt) to stop the bleeding & then finally back to the house. It was sweltering! Then I had to lug all the groceries in & put away.
I finally finished up stuff I'd been trying to get done earlier about 8 p.m. last night. There's still a few things yet to do. Pick up a pie (yeah, College Bound Daughter wants a pie for her graduation party!) plus order a cake (for everyone else!). Saturday I need to run to order balloons to pick up before the party on Sunday & take the food up to the party location so I won't have to do it Sunday. I just hope the people putting the refreshments together for after church, don't get confused & use my stuff (I'll mark it clearly - just in case!)
And the wind here in North Texas has been HORRIBLE! Remember my post about flying dogs? I saw some guy carrying his tiny little dog the other day - it probably started to get airborne & he didn't want to lose the little thing! I even saw some fences that had fallen down due to the wind. Would be half way ok if there was a nice cool breeze with all that wind but it's so dry & warm. Sort of like what I'd expect from the California Santa Ana winds.
If I'm not here in the next couple days I'll be back after graduation is all over & done with & post about it then.
