Before I get started on how my day is going I want to post a few pictures.
Faze Daze has been talking about her collection of egg plates. Now she has way more then me. I actually never knew I needed one until mine was given to me. My mother in law gave me this plate. All I know about it is that it is carnival glass. Rusty does not remember this plate, so he is guessing that it game from his grandmother on his mothers side.
I still do not use this plate very often. Don't get me wrong. I get the plate out and I make the eggs, but the marines usually eat all of them before they make it to the plate. And why does this plate have a cut out for 13 eggs?
Betty from Koda's Corgi tales said that there is a contest for pictures of love and tenderness. Now I am sure this means different things to everyone. So here are my pictures for that.
See all of these young people. These are all marines that are getting ready to go back to Iraq. To me love is and was passing out the quilts and giving them a good time! Yes, these are children that our defending our country.
This is Jake and Larry. Larry's real name is Nikki, but since we have to many Nikki's so Rusty changed her name to Larry. The sad thing is Larry responses to her name! This picture was taken the night of the going away party. These two are not just friends they are comrades in arms.
So last night did not go as planned, but then again that is no huge surprise.
Our landlord, Tim called me yesterday. When we rented this house from him, we agreed to pay to have the floors in the downstairs put in. We were suppose to do that next week.
So Tim called and said. "Instead of putting the floors in like we had talked about I have something else in mind. I have enough tile to tile your whole downstairs, and all you would have to do is pay for labor. That is going to be $1,500." I said that sounded good to me.
Then Tim asked me if I could give him the money that night. I told Tim that I could give him part of it later on, and that I could give him the rest of it tomorrow. He said that was fine, and went on to tell me that 9 people did not pay their rent this month. so I told him no problem, I also told him that next week we could pay March's rent if it would help him out. Tim said if we did that then he would knock $300 off our rent! Hell that is a bargain for us.
After talking with Tim for a while, he told me why they are hurting so much. This poor family has had two deaths month and all the air fair to go back east was killing them. I knew that they had gone back east, but he never said what he was going for. Oh well, I guess it is a win win situation.
Then Amber and Sam were having an argument. So I did what any good mom would do. I sat outside Amber's door and listened to the whole thing. Amber is so wrong in this fight! So this morning I told Amber that. So now I am bad mom because I am not taking her side. I just ignored her. Sam is right and she is wrong.
Miles came up last night and got bookworm loaded for me. I swear this was the hardest game to install. Now my girlfriend downloaded the game and she had no problems. O.K. maybe we are just all idiots.
Then I still had to go to wal mart. The girls have the car during the day, so off to wal mart I went. I was so tired when I got home that I just left everything by the front door.
This morning I get up and call Rusty and he is ready for his sale today. Man I wish I was there with him.
I started putting everything away while the children were getting ready for school. Start a load of laundry, clean out the litter box's, and had my third cup of coffee.
I go into the laundry room to find half a bottle of fabric softener spilled all over the floor! I forgot to not put the fabric softener on top of the washer. Well the house smells nice now.
Then one of the dogs puked. Great now I have to clean that up. To top it off he could not puke on the cement oh no he had to puke on the carpet!
The rest of my is going to be busy. I have a lot of running around to do..... once the girls get home. So I am going to take advantage of the sun and the warm weather. Hell I am feeling good enough that I might actually walk the dogs. Oh I should go and lay down so that this urge can leave me.
O.K. here is a song that means a lot to Rusty and I. When I hear this song it just makes me smile.
