We always want one more day. I wish I could win the lottery. I wish I was independently wealthy. I wish I had a rich uncle who left me a boatload of cash. I wish I was a housewife. Well, maybe not that last one. But we do always want just one more day off from work and life right? To go fishing and have long lunches. Today is Friday. Back to work for me. The BF is on his way home. The kids are now fully entrenched in The Walking Dead. The TV show. The girl just started watching it. The boy has been watching it. But now he’s watching it again with her. She is staying up late and having nightmares, but she won’t stop. She is stomping around the house, yelling at the TV when things are getting tense during an episode, but she won’t stop. My boy has to keep calling her back into the room so she doesn’t miss the next thing that is going to make her mad. She loves Daryll. She hates Rick. She hates Shane. But not really. She just doesn’t like them. But she loves loves loves Daryll. And Glen. And the blonde. It’s complicated. Apparently. I will say this show does inspire strong feelings. At least I know they will be fine when I leave. I think she is only at season 2. Plenty to keep them busy with. I have been up for a few hours and let me tell you, I think I got more done just this morning than I got done in the 2 days I was actually off. Why does it always work that way for me? Too much time and I do nothing. Not enough and I have it almost all done. Grass watered. Flowers revived (hopefully). Laundry nearly finished. That’s the surprising one. House is clean and I need to hop into the shower asap. At least I know that my house will stay clean because the kids probably won’t move now for the next 10 hours.

Alright. Let me wrap this up. I really got to go. I hope it rains just a little. My outdoor stuff needs that good rainwater. First day of summer. Do something fun. Here’s another pic from the fishing hole. FYI. We didn’t catch one darn fish. And, these are Stevie’s photos. All credit goes to her. Later.

Street Money Update! Wealthy Edition!

August 8, 2009 at 9:38 pm (Street Money) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Oh we have been busy. We have found the money’s! The “wealthy” edition headline, may have been stretching it a bit, but it’s the most we’ve found at one time, in a long time! Various locations have placed the coin gathering…

Here: , parking lot, running trail, found it while trying to stretch and not pass out.

Here: , Zoo, (we went, we saw, we pictured, we video’d, we will post AND You Tube, the animals were crazy!! and we got it on film!! it was one of the best trips ever!!) again, one penny, Zoo, at the end of the day. Granted, there is not alot of cash with change, being passed around there. Everything is dollars or credit…kind of expensive…but it’s for the animals so…

Here: , Hooter’s. Hey, it was on the way home! I mean, we had to go RIGHT past it! Delicious! Quality time….with the kids….

Here: 24¢, Bowling Alley, inside. Kids found it near the arcade…of course! Had to do something fun on Friday too!! They were leaving me!!

Here: , Bowling Alley, outside. My find. For an even quarter over there!

Here: , at the PetSmart, outside in a  puddle, it was raining by then. It was actually raining all day Friday, but we had to get some feeders for the Oscars (still got a post about those guys) and Mason got himself two, new, baby Oscars, so tiny and cute; a Tiger and an Albino. I am hoping they make it through the next week while he is gone. New fish is always a risk.

Grand total for 2 days of scouring alot of miles in Illinois: 29¢

Not a fortune, but it keeps us busy!

Check here for the year total, and be sure to keep reading for more exciting posts about: OUR EXCITING LIVES!! Hahaha.
