Two weeks in a row I've managed to tackle the bills on a Monday morning. That's accomplishment enough, but today, I managed the first item on my list, even though it involved working outside.
I'm a bit sore after all the yard work. I should do it more regularly, since it's such a good work out.
I managed to leave the house in time to get in four stops before picking up the boys, but stopping at CompuUSA for Critter meant that I was rushed for time to make dinner. I got it started, and then Flar finished it, and he and Critter ate while Tigger and I were at the gymnastics center. That's where I got the coupons clipped, and where I'll get a solid hour a week to work on my cloak once I have it started.
I ended up directly behind spydielives in the left turn lane, and we pulled into my driveway one after another. She visited with Flar while I ate my dinner, and then we went to work on the hem. It's always kind of scary, cutting away that much material. But as far as either of us could tell, the new hemline appeared even. The pinning was really the hardest part. After that, it was really just additional trimming, and then a bunch of ironing. That iron-on seam tape is great stuff.
Now, all I've got left tonight is updating the bowling records, printing out the receipt forms for tomorrow, and folding the work towels and putting them away. Right now, we're watching Death to Smoochy. I never got around to seeing it when it was in the theatre.
