It's hooooooooooot. ::whine:: I don't want to turn on the A/C yet. Girls aren't acting like they're hot so it's probably just me because I don't think it's really all that bad out today. Their cheeks usually get really red if they're at all hot and they look fine.
I'm starting to wonder about our mail service here, because something is wrong with either it or me, lol. Seriously, I swear I remember writing out checks for things, putting them in the mailbox, and then being told later I never paid something? Just yesterday we got a notice from our homeowners association about a storm repair they contracted, they paid, we paid them... it was like $40, I specifically remember writing the check, telling Mike I was paying it, and mailing it off. Waste of a stamp!! Need to go through our bank statements to make sure they didn't just make a mistake on that one. But then today, I got a notice from a tax attorney or somesuch saying that I didn't pay my per capita for 2008. Now, it's only 23.xx, but I don't NOT pay my taxes, lol. I either didn't get it, or sent it off and they didn't get it... I always write the date I wrote the check/mailed something off on the actual bill before I store it away, but of course our "filing cabinet" is really just one of those 3 drawer plastic things and papers are just thrown in...no particular order. Need to fix that... but now I get the joy of later going through every single paper until I find (or not find) that tax statement/bill/whatever. I already started (and started separating everything into like piles for a start on real organization) but then Ava kept trying to wake up Charlotte...so she finally did and now they're playing and I'm here because I have a headache and I'm procrastinating fixing dinner. Mike will hopefully be home at 6:30ish so I have a little time... and the kids ate two lunches today and plenty of snacks so they're good.
I was working on my grocery list too so that's somewhat productive I guess... heh.
Mike called me earlier and said they found a huge yard sale (yeah, great "work" guys, haha) and asked if I wanted to go check it out tomorrow. He said they both wanted to buy a wheelbarrow but didn't think they could get away with stashing them in the ambulance. They talked to the guy who was doing the selling and he said he'd be out there tomorrow to so that works.
So aside from that tomorrow I want to get some paint mixed up because I used almost all of the "house color" to paint my garden bed and we got the wood to make a smaller one for strawberries only so I'll need to paint that to match...and get the shed trim sanded and painted. And while I have the sander out hopefully sand and start painting the jelly cupboard my mom gave me...either for the garage or the kitchen... I have high hopes for tomorrow. We'll see if any of it actually gets done, lol.
I guess Saturday we are having a cook out. My mom called me the other day and said "are you having a party this weekend" "uhhh, no?" "well, you are now." LOL. Sounds good I guess. She said spread the word...but I don't really know anyone that would actually come up, especially last minute like that. I figure most people already have plans with it being a holiday weekend, so I'm just letting Mike invite who he wants. I might facebook/myspace a status about it...maybe, lol.
Uh oh, Ava's starting to try to take a nap. Must go disturb her!! LOL. No naps after 3:30pm!!
