Afternoon update

I actually got up when I needed to this morning, but the kids needed more sleep, so Matt drove himself to the airport. As it was, I got to bowling quite early for a change.

We had a great day, bowling. My average is 138, and I bowled 133, 130 & 175. And, our team took all four points, to keep us in first place by 1.5 points.

I got the last of what I needed for cooking over the weekend while I was out, so now I have the remaining time to make the house as presentable as possible. I'd rather not live at the present level of mess, thank you.

Look like tonight would be a poor choice to go get the lumber. It's "pouring the rain" as Knight says when he's being country, and I'd rather not soak the lumber or drive in the rain with a load on top of the van.

I have an appointment to take Critter to the doctor this afternoon. He has weird purple bruising on his chin area. The school nurses suspects the trumpet, but thought it would be prudent to see the doctor.

I've caught up on live journal, and taken this test:



They can get their *own* damn brains to eat!


What pisses you off?
