Good morning everyone! Last night was dinner and homework with DD15, not exciting, but successful. She did not talk to the principle Monday, because she decided it was more important to get her schoolwork done than go to Mardi Gras. This is the second time she has made a similar decision. The xBFF's daughter made the same choice. She is 17 and could have traveled independently. Guess they are adulting too. My traveling companion friend is going to decide today. If she does not go, I will skip as well. In answer to lucylee's
question, Mardi Gras in Mobile does predate the celebration in New Orleans by about 20 years. The one in NO was founded by people who moved from Mobile.
While DD worked, I also worked. The last drawer in the kitchen is decluttered, cleaned, and organized. I did not finish the printer counter, but did get a start, and found some of my dad's artwork that I need to frame and hang.
In honor of anti-procrastination day, I have made a list of 5:
- broiler check
- animal org form
- clear kitchen table
- finish clearing printer counter
- birthday cards and thank you cards
If there is time, I should put away my suitcase and all in it from my Christmas travels
. At some point during a break at payroll, I need to consolidate and organize some lists.
In answer to those who have advised me on the xBFF, know that I am pretty much avoiding her. I am not being rude, of course, and will send her an owed thank you note. However, it is minimal contact, seeing her only at large parties. I see humor in the situation sometimes, too.
Congratulations to Ramblinrose
on her retirement.Mr. In-Canada
should wear the sweater instead of packing it. If it is too hot, he can tie it around his waist.
