(Yes, you know you wanted to know. )
I've pre blogged a bit cause that's what I do.
Today, I will give you a what's up JC moment.I just got back from grocery shopping. It's been so hot out that I didn't feel like melting with the crowds. Today is a bit cooler thus the venture out to the local food supply store ... aka .. Safeway.
I've unloaded the masses with the help of my two teenagers who knew the national code for .. help with the grocery bags ... also known as three honks after the garage door opens. Sometimes my sweet two do not know or hear this and thus I hide the special items I've bought. Today, due to their generous ways, I will show them everything fun that I purchased. Sharing just like I did in kindergarten.
Made a fresh cup of coffee and toasted a cinnamon & raisin bagel. Going to share it with the girls.
I have to say, the grocery store trip went well. I didn't get dizzy or have any of my .. right side belongs to someone else .. stuff go on. It was almost like I was normal again. Normal for me at least. Only one moment when I turned my head and felt a touch of ... I'm going to pass out ... but, that only lasted a few moments ... thus, I will not count it. It's my adventure and my rules.
I can't tell you the last time I went driving by myself, let alone shopping. Really I can't. That's how my world is. I need to have my son with me or Mr. Boatman drive me. Thus, this trip cost a bit ... got everything I could think of and more.
Speaking of Mr. Boatman, he's going on a trip today and a very long one next week and one after that. Maybe he should be known as Mr. Travelman since the boat is just a memory to him at this point. I'll think about that ... cause, I remembered he booked a boating date on Sunday. Yes, he is that busy ... he has to put things on the calendar. I know ... who lives like that ... I do. I'm used to it now but in the beginning ... think back a century or so ... I did get a bit annoyed at Mr. Boatman for what I considered ... abandonment ... imagine me and two young childlike units and no husband around to help.
Some told me to leave Mr. Boatman and his every busy arse but I didn't. He was my friend, my heart and he is funny when he's around. So, I raised my two childlike units basically on my own. With Mr Boatman stopping by when he had time. In between this flight or that meeting. We really have had maybe five dinners where we are all together ... really ... five. (During the week) OK, maybe seven but I'm not counting any higher than that.
Too much noise going on ... the baby American Goldfinch ... family ... is eating at my diner. Also, know as Riley's Bird TV. Only the babies who are chirping away look at bit like Mrs. Goldfinch was visiting the neighbor, Mr. Chickadee. Fluffy chubby yellow babies. Cute as can be but noisy. They were here yesterday too. I think they just left their nest cause the little ones are flapping their wings even while on a branch. Cute ... I know I said that but had to say it again.
It's cloudy and a bit muggy and I'm thinking about switching to long pants. I've been waiting for the skies to part and the heat to arrive. I just know as soon as I take off my brown shorts that it will warm up and I'll have to change again.
I watched Slumdog Millionaire last night with the family. Yes, Mr. Boatman got home early ... sevenish ... so, we watched a film together. I think I liked it but now I never want to go to India. Garbage and orphans everywhere. Who would want to visit there ? (just my opinion cause it's my blog )
Teenagers are watching a Harry Potter movie on the big tv in the family room. They want to take me to the new movie and maybe I will go with them. I don't like to go out when a movie is .. new new .. cause of the crowds and the possibility that I will fall ... not a good thing to be trampeled on ... on the way to getting a good seat ... not my cup of coffee ... I know Tea but I'm having coffee and it's my blog ...
That's about it on the update ... Cats and Dogs are quiet today. Riley is watching bird TV in the den and Ashton is watching in the living room. Maddy Jean and Bella are snoozing by my feet. Jasmine is upstairs sleeping in the closet and Al is on the bed.
Me, I'm going to get going on my list. I have things to do today.
I hope you all enjoyed my update.
