I wasn't even going to post about it but since this is my journal, I will go ahead.
It was a work day for me. I had anticipated a very busy day but it was slower than I had thought. I had an extra server early and a bus boy just in case.
My oldest son worked at 8 am and he drove all of us crazy most of the day.
We closed at 2 pm and I was home by 3:45.
I took a quick bath to freshen up, changed clothes and we were on our way.
We stopped at Petco to get Molly and Skip new collars and name tags. I noticed Pier 1 was having a big sale but I looked away.
The lake (very slow for a holiday, probably due to being a Wed.)
Our reservation was for 7 pm out on the patio and I had hoped it would be a bit cooler by then.
I was wrong.
The boys were cranky, although the big one was the only one who constantly complained and he spent a lot of time inside at the bar talking to the bartender (I used work there for 11 years so we pretty much still knew everyone).
This was the look I got:
|"Why would you subject me to such torture?"|
The little one realized if you dipped your finger in ice water, it sort of cooled you down.
We had a nice dinner, here's mine
Filet mignon with gorgonzola sauce, yukon gold mashed pots and asparagus.
I had a few vodka tonics. And a lot of water.
I made the little one take a picture of us
And with me
There was a problem with the fireworks. It looked like a huge one exploded too close to the ground instead of shooting high into the air and there were emergency people jumping onto boats to go to the island and then it was over. No more fireworks. So we went home.
I let the dogs out and Skip got sprayed by a skunk in the back yard. The little one had to make our skunk concoction and wash the dog in the baby pool. I went to bed. I had been up since 6 am and I was over it.
This summer is my least favorite yet.
Today I am in cool house trying to get things done before my sister in law gets here tomorrow from NJ. She isn't staying here (although she is welcome to) but I made some fun plans for while she is here.
I am taking her out to dinner one night, a trip to the lake for shopping at the outlets and a trip to another lake for a swim day for the kids. I am looking forward to seeing her and talking to her. Haven't had any girl time for a while (employees don't count) and she could use a break too. This boredom and loneliness has gotten me down. I have tried to keep myself busy with projects but it just makes me sadder.
She will be here 3 weeks and then we have our big busy week at work and then band camp starts.
The little one is now taking his flying lessons every Friday. I am getting used to it. I think.
I got my fun Sephora shipment today.
I cannot wait to try my new makeup items.
Now on to the grocery store, brushing the dogs, cleaning the master bath, picking up the bedroom and vacuuming.
This is the life.
