I am excited...it doesn't take much.
I worked today. Saw some weddings, a bridal shower. Again, amazed by the footwear of women. I watch The View. Yes, I know, shocking, isn't it? I am so tired of Barbara Walters, can she just retire right now? I realize that she broke some "glass ceilings" for women, but she is pathetic right now. She looks fragile, forgets what she is talking about. But I digress. One of the discussions was about women's shoes. Did you know that the average amount of time a woman can wear the dress shoes that are out there today is 15 minutes? Yes, 15 minutes. I'm sure I mentioned my sprained ankle, for which Scott did nothing to help me. In fact, he turned away from me, leaving me to twist my ankle and turn it a very ugly color. Again, I digress. So, when women come into Phipps in these incredible shoes the events staff warn them. This is an old building with uneven pathways. Be careful. Most go in with these shoes and leave carrying them and going barefoot. And to watch them walk is interesting to say the least. But I have to say, the shoes I had on when I sprained my ankle were very comfortable. Katie and I share them...aren't they pretty? Well, I hope to post a picture, but I am in the break in the hockey game, so we shall see.
I came home from work, listening to the Pirates on the radio (we lost in the 11th inning), watched the game when I got home, then turned to the hockey game. And exciting Saturday night, can I just say that? And the hockey game is going into overtimes, just as Steve predicted. I also shined my shoes. This, as pitiful as it may seem, was a very relaxing night for me.
Oh, yes, and Matt got called up for a pony league game (insert neighing). He did well, it seems. If he makes a lot of money playing baseball, will he reimburse me for road trips? I think I mentioned that he brought up on a road trip...."What will we do when Mia dies? Oh, wait, by that time Katie will be driving". Sigh of relief from the back seat. Me, going to my happy place. Group hugs all around.
Plumbing. Let's discuss that one. Doing the laundry, water backs up in sewer line. It has happened before, but plunging has corrected the problem. Not so this time. Liquid plumber. No good. Let's move to the big guns...ok, wrong phrase...move to the ultimate solution...the snake. Finally released the plug (tree limbs are a pain) and now all is fixed.
Okay, about time for the next period in hockey. I want the Blackhawks to win. They have a neat logo. That's what it comes down to.
Did I mention that Katie got a job? She did. I'm not allowed to say where or post it on facebook or get the blimp that is in town to hang a banner. Kids.
By the way, they used to have spell check on here, and apparently they don't anymore. I don't proof well and where is Linda when I need her? After this is posted, she will tell me what I missed.
