It's five o'clock on a Saturday....morning, that is---what the hell am I doing up at this hour? I have been awake since three-thirty, which is usually when I get home on a Saturday morning,but I was in no condition to go anywhere last night, so I was asleep by nine thirty. Yes folks, this is what old age does to you. It takes all the fun out of life. We had planned to go out, but I could hardly walk when I got home from work. I am working too hard, and I am really beginning to resent it. And I am still behind in my bookwork, and that will take all weekend to catch up. Blech.
But things are ticking along the way they are supposed to, I suppose. YS is feeling better, well enough to go the state fair last night....now there is a trip----the Iowa State Fair....I hadn't been in awhile, so H and I went last year, met up with YS and GF, and holy-hell---did it ever suck! Our wonderful state fair made number two on the national "things to do this summer" list that was in some national magazine---us news or time, or whatever....it was number two only to visiting las vegas. And apparently, everyone took their advice...it was the most CROWDED, hottest fricken place I had ever been. Because I don't love my food on a stick, I fail to see the interest, I suppose, although it is a good place to watch the dregs of the earth come out from under their rocks for ten days. Mostly, it was hell for me. I think H and I may have been there for about an hour...and I shoved and hundred and a half dollars into YS's hand and told he and GF to have fun, and we got the hell out of there. You couldn't move your arm without running it into someone, you couldn't walk without bumping into someone, and it was seriously about a hundred degrees...and do you know what a gazillion hot, sweaty people SMELL like? ugh...I think we will find something else to do this year.... But anyway, YS is on the mend.
D has a job interview coming up, that makes me happy. I am certain it would be something she would be excellent at, as most things are, and i am keeping my fingers crossed. :)
OS is playing in a basketball tournament today, here in town. Unfortunately, I have to work, as freakin' always, and I won't be able to cheer him on. I love to watch that kid play, it really does something to me, I am so proud of him. He is very talented, and at his MOST happy when he is on the court.
I have tons to do today, and the service/parts department will be closed. Hopefully, it will be calm enough for me to actually get something done. I should get going, I guess, but even though I was home last night, I am still tired, as usual, and feeling somewhat crappy. I am hoping that changes...and I hope that your day is awesome, as well! Out.
