Today looks like a busy one for me- pick up my car from the shop. I hope they got both things all done, but I told them I had to have it back today- I have a lot going on today and this weekend. I had to have some brake work done and replace a whole headlight bucket/lense assembly.
I also need to hit Aldi and Wal-Mart. Might be getting together with an old friend for a little while, and drop my son off at a friends for 3 and pick up both kids for 5 pm. Busy day.....
I need to thaw something for dinner... I had my parents over for dinner last night, we had lasagna and I was planning to have leftovers of that but everyone really dug into it and ate it all... It's just me and the kids for dinner tonight so I am thinking something simple and cheap : )
...because I have to be at the local radio station at 6:10 to be interviewed about the spelling bee. We picked up two more sponsors yesterday and another team! When this is all over, I will let you know how it all turned out.
We bought a new riding mower yesterday. Did the research and went to Sears for a Consumer Reports Best Buy. We have had nothing but trouble for the past couple of years with the mowing deck of our 14-year-old machine. It didn't run for about half of the mowing
season last year. When DH fixed it last, two weeks ago, he said he was done. It didn't even last through two mowings. The one we bought wasn't in stock, but they will have it May 29. We got the sale price by buying it yesterday, plus 5% off for using a Sears card (which we will pay off within 30 days). This all means DH needs to fix the deck yet again to finish this week's mowing.
The plumber is coming at 9 a.m. today to fix the pipe in the basement ceiling.
I spent last night taking apart one chair for parts to fix another. These are the chairs I bought at St. Vinnie's a few weeks ago 3/$12. I got tired of waiting for DH to do it. Now I have two good chairs. They are black ladder backs.
Don't really have any other plans today except for more housework and laundry and getting ready to go to cabin tomorrow. I printed out the instructions for fixing the roller shade. I do have to make a run to Home Depot today and will probably do that on the way home from the radio station. No idea what's for dinner tonight, but I'm cooking. DD made pizza and salad last night, and I have leftover salad for tonight.
Edited to add--radio station called 5 minutes before I was leaving and postponed us until next week. The guy who was going to interview us called in sick. Wish he'd called in last night, before I got up at 5 a.m.!
