Not Much to Tell You

It's raining outside.
I let another couple of days go by without blogging, even though I wrote a few entries in my head.
My BooBoo is still in Atlanta - got here Monday evening and I believe he's heading home tomorrow.
He worked about a hundred hours last week.
I worked about twenty.
I ended up with a four day weekend due to some rearranging of the work schedule.
It would have been a great weekend to go to the mountains except for the fact that Friday morning, my car broke down.
Had I been headed to the mountains, that little mishap would have happened somewhere in the middle of Atlanta rather than 1/2 a mile from my parents' house.
I called State Farm's newly enhanced roadside assistance, had my car towed to the mechanic and was back on the road by Friday evening.
It was some sort of fuel sensor thing-a-ma-bob.
I spent Saturday morning with my kids (well, 2/3 of them + daughter-in-law) searching for Sarabeth's birthday present.
She's having a Georgia Bulldog birthday party. I was afraid this would happen.
I mean... her nursery was decorated in UGA colors when she was a baby.
Jamie's was decorated in Berry College colors.
Subliminal messaging about the importance of a college education.
Anyways... if my beautiful about to be ten year old niece is gonna be a fan, I want to make her a stylish fan.
And so I enlisted the help of my kids (-1, + daughter) and we searched four stores before I found exactly the  right gift.
It killed me to drop my hard-earned money on such. That should tell you how much I love her!
I had found her something else I really liked at the thrift store on Friday - and something I really love for my purple lovin' stylish little Jamie-gurl.
This was the scene of the great break-down. The car, not me. Not this time.
Other than the thrift store, the breakdown, the shopping trip... there's not much to tell you.
Breakfast at iHop with the kids (-1 +daughter) and then my super-talented sons (-1) cooked an awesome dinner for us last night. Steak and mashed potatoes, squash, sauteed mushrooms and onions.
I've watched a lot of football.
Watched a lot of documentaries.
Rearranged my castle in Castleville.
Picked up a prescription.
Cleaned up some dog vomit.
Another day off tomorrow... then I work four days, two days off... can't remember the rest of the schedule as my office manager told me over the phone on Friday.
I still love my job.
Having a little bit of stiffness, hands and hips, mostly. It's been damp outside, kicking that arthritis into gear.

Not much to tell you...
Just life.
