Yesterday was Crazy Tuesday again - 4 trips to TKD for a total of about 6 hours spent there.
I still love Wetness Days more than any other weekday. I actually got a few things accomplished - sewed on 3 more patches for my side biz, to the tune of $15. If you knew how easy this was, you'd agree it's almost a crime. But I charge about a third (or is it a fourth?) of what the local real biz charges, so I don't feel too bad.
The siren song of Walmart drew us in to buy some essentials (if you were there, I was the one pushing the cart full of 80 lbs of kids that had a Starboard list (cart, not kids) and had to be slid around the left-hand turns) and I finally bought a Pirates of the Carribean DVD set for the little MuNKis. They now know all the places where they have to FF. Fortunately, they are more than willing to do so. Now that I've seen it a few times (and sans the magic dog and blanket combo) I really do appreciate it more. A lot more.
Here is what you will never find at Walmart:
Walmart Brand batteries (really cheap, but I can NEVER find them, GuTTer MuNKi has to.)
There is a Starbucks drive-through conveniently located right by Wallyworld. Guess what I got. Yep - Pumpkin Spice Latte. You know, I think I've been to Starbucks as many times in the last month or 2 as I had all together before then. :-P Cursed Pumpkin Spice Latte. I really appreciate their $1 kid's cocoas. Yes, I could make a whole potful for less than $1, but the kids sure do enjoy this treat, and so do I. :)
Every time I want to take pics of the gorgeous poison ivy (yes, I used those words in conjunction) climbing up the trees, it starts to rain. Today was no exception. Poo.
I've finally stopped procrastinating reading the rest of the Covenant books and am on the final old one. Then for the new one, and by then new one #2 might be out. This one seems less annoying. I kinda remember that from before. They used to be some of my favourite books. Not so much now. :-P My fave sci-fi books are the first 3 Dune books. Oh, and I love Ender's Game and the Ender's Shadow books. Not so much the others (Speaker for the Dead, etc.)
I'll also be embarking on The Mermaid Chair.
Whatcha reading right now?
