30 March 2008

I should have posted much earlier when I wasn't so tired. I had the hardest time staying asleep last night and I'm ready for bed now. Except I just remembered I still need to make Emily's lunch for tomorrow. Her ham sandwich phase is over and it's back to PB&J. Fine with me!

I skipped the lodge this morning and hung around here. Watched TV till 10:00 AM, which made me feel quite lazy. I didn't do anything around the house. I went for gas on the way to pick Emily up from her friends, and brought along my two gas cans to fill. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but as I was filling the first one it totally back splashed on me. Gas got on my wool coat, jeans and shoes. I wasn't soaked, but totally smelly! Yuck. I read a bunch of my book this afternoon, another pleasure I rarely indulge in. Emily and I went to the movies at 5:00 to see Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day. A client told me it was not to be missed. We went to an old stand-alone theater. One of the last few like that around here and it was filled with senior citizens. We were embarrassed to do it, but changed seats just before the movie started because someone a few rows up had a very large afro that cut into our view. I'm so used to stadium seating where every view is unobstructed. The movie was fun with great costumes and a happy ending but I wouldn't say it was a must-see.

I watched my first baseball game tonight. Ever. It was the opening game for the Nationals in their brand new stadium in DC. They won! I don't think I'll make a habit out of it, in fact I'm sure, but it was fun to watch and root for them.

Tomorrow is Mom day. She's badly in need of a haircut, so that will be our first order of business. Her hair is very thick and it takes a long time to cut. I earn my free lunch. She wants to go to Walmart to pick up some outdoor furniture and browse around. Afterwards we'll go to our favorite Chinese buffet. I'll make sure to have her back to the house by 2:00 so she doesn't miss Passions.

Well, I've blabbed long enough. Time to make that lunch. TTYS!

What flavor "J" we talking about? My favorite is black raspberry jelly. Good stuff to be sure.

Also, give baseball a chance. Watching baseball is unlike watching any other sport. You can watch the game and do other things at the same time.

If you watched the game to the end you have to admit they won in dramatic fashion, darn it.

Can you tell I'm a big Braves fan?

I hate getting splashed even a little by gasoline. The smell is impossible to get away from.

It's gonna be a long season this year. I'm a HUGE Cardinals fan and they are going to be horrible. That team stinks so bad I can smell them from 250 miles away! haha

i'm glad the Nationals won their first game of the season in their "new home."

i had a peanut & jelly sandwich saturday. yum!

i'm so "spoiled" by stadium seating now, that i can't stand when i attend an older theater. plus i'm short, so a lot of people's hair/heads get in my way. LOL!

Sounds like you had a great day! Have fun with your mom tomorrow and enjoy the Chinese food. Oh, and I love peanut butter and jelly! Grape jelly for me!

CRUSTY MOM-E said...

why the two gas cans? Incase you run out or for emergencies?

Will she do the "prestuffed" PBandJ's? Market day sells them and they are so good..plus organic! :)

Enjoy your day today with your mom...May I join you for a buffet?
There's a chance we'll be in Virginia Beach in June...I'll keep you posted. :()

I still love PB&J sandwiches and eat them all the time. I have to have Welches Grape Jam though - it's what I grew up on.

Don't care much for baseball myself and don't ever watch it. Actually, I'm not a sports fan of any sport.

I hope you have a nice day with your mom.

I still love PB&J and have them regularly for breakfast or first lunch.

Why two gas cans?

I had bad gas station karma today too - I went to throw away some trash while the gas was pumping, and threw away my debit card too. :(

Thanks for the review on that movie, I was toying with the idea of seeing it, so now I think I'll just wait for netflix.

Hope you enjoy the day with your mom.
