So this weekend is the Wyanet Festival. There will be a man auction. I wish I had unlimited funds because I would buy a couple of men. I could use the siding washed, or some weeds pulled, and the garage organized, and some bushes trimmed. And there are three dove nests around the house that can go.
The beer gardens actually started last night. We have drawdown tickets for tonight, and today I bought tickets to another drawdown from my grandpa, for the Manlius Historical Society in August. I would like to win. Who wouldn't? But I would REALLY like to win.
Saturday is the parade, and I have to walk in it for work, and I am supposed to wear some logo clothing, but all my logo clothing is all faded and shrunk so I am not sure what I am going to do about that. Argh. Do laundry I guess first, and then see what I come up with.
This morning I put on a pair of my new shoes (the loafers) for work, and I was SOOO upset. the right shoe is bigger than the left! WTF? I checked and they are both "marked" as the same size, but they are NOT! And I know my feet are the same size, I have TONS of shoes, and have tried on tons of shoes in my lifetime, and I have NEVER had this issue before. Of course the one that is too big is the one that I didn't try on in the store, since I only tried on one of each shoe. DAMN YOU PAYLESS! How frustrating is that? So my left shoe is fine but it feels like my right shoe is going to fall off at any minute. How fabulous.
I talked to Carrie today, she had a baby girl, Kara Elizabeth at 12:47pm yesterday via c-section. She was 17 days early and still weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces, and was 20 inches long. She is healthy, with dark hair and eyes, and Carrie says she looks like her dad, and her brother Jakob. I emailed Jay to see if he could send me the pictures via email, since Carrie and Kara are still in the hospital. Since he is 8 hours ahead of me (Iraq) I will probably hear from him in a day or two. Thanks to all of you who sent good karma her way! Now I just have to wait till labor day weekend till Angela and I fly out to see Carrie and Kara in Utah. And I have to save money to buy my ticket!
I am tired today. I took a sleeping pill last night at 10:30 and was still awake and fighting it off at 1am. I totally have GOT to go to sleep on time and get up earlier and go to work earlier. Really. I need to get back on track and start my walking again too. It's ESSENTIAL! I need a massage too, I can feel myself carrying lots of stress and strain in my shoulders again. Ugh. I need a vacation, but as usual, I have ZERO PTO and ZERO extra cash, so I won't be going anywhere, save for Utah on Labor Day Weekend.
Really, I am just plain tired. I am kinda feeling cranky towards the end of this week... not sure why. Mostly because I am tired I suppose. I am not even excited about the beer gardens this weekend and tonight, because it's just more money (I have to pay to get in and I don't even LIKE beer.) so I don't know. We will see. Plus I just feel like I am a machine to pay bills, and I am sick of it too. I feel like I live to balance checkbooks and write out checks. Ick. Ick. Ick.
Hopefully, this too shall pass.
