Well, I can honestly say that beyond cooking meals and cleaning up the dishes, I’ve done absolutely no housework of any kind today. I haven’t even done laundry.
After making belgian waffles for breakfast, and watching an episode of Life On Mars (which is excellent, btw!), we ended up taking Craig’s RC truck to Ellison Park and bashing around in this area that’s got this huge sandy pit with a gigantic cliff-like hill. It was pretty fun, though we weren’t there very long before we inundated with soccer moms and little kids, and people running their dogs off leash. Most of the people were pretty nice, kids included, however, there were a couple of soccer moos there with their crotch droppings who insisted on pretty much being right on top of us, and were using their cell phones to find out where their other friends were within the park, and were being completely obnoxious about it. *shakes head* They need to learn a thing or two about boundries and personal space. They have the WHOLE park, and yet they choose to stand right next to us. It’s not like they were watching us run the car or anything either, they were just there.
Then after coming home, I tried to become a bit more motivated, but failed miserably. Instead I read a little, watched a little of the Bills game (we lost), and then found myself online becoming engrossed in the Lonelygirl15 dramarama. Have you all heard about this? Apparently, there’s been some heated speculation over whether this is real or just some sort of marketing scam. Either way, I found it interesting, as “LG15” appears to be involved in some alternative Lovecraft/Crowley-ish religious group. My interest is piqued, and so I think I may just continue to follow along and see where the whole thing goes.
Just spoke with my dad. *sigh* It’s hard trying to talk with my father-not only does he usually try to dominate the conversation, making it hard to get a word in edgewise, but when I actually do get to say something, I get the feeling like he’s not really listening, or is maybe just not interested in what I have to say. I dunno. I could be convicted of the same crime; I tend to tune him out especially when he gets going about the neighbors, or finances, or sports, or any other subject that he can just go on and on about endlessly. I love my dad, but we’ve never been close; in fact when I was growing up there were many years when I saw neither hide nor hair of him. Since my mom died, we’ve been closer in that we see each other more, and talk more, and make concerted efforts to get along, but we’re not “close.” I wish we could be. He really has been alot more enthusiastic about me since I got married. Dad loves Craig to death, and gets really excited about us coming for visits now, ’cause he can sit and visit with Craig. That’s cool-it takes the heat off me, and so Dad is less focused on arguing with me for fun, and we just have a nice visit instead.
Watched a couple of movies this weekend on cable-“The Mermaid’s Chair” on Lifetime, and “In Her Shoes” on HBO in Demand. Oh, yeah…I also watched “Roll Bounce” on HBO. I’ll try and post some movie reviews, as well as a couple of book reviews within the next couple of days, though no promises. This week is going to be very busy getting ready for the in-laws to visit. *g*
I also need to make some new snoods for Bishy. We bought some really nice fleecy material on sale at Joanne’s over the weekend. Dog snoods are tubular, kinda like a big turtle neck, and they fit over the dog’s head and down his neck, holding his ears so they don’t get messy in his food and water or whatever. Extremely long eared breeds, such as Bloodhounds, can have alot of issues with the tips of the ears getting infected because they’re always wet and/or dirty. We have to clean his ears, insides and outside quite frequently, usually a few times a week. He looks really cute in his snood, sorta like Laura Ingalls. *grinchuckle*
Have a great week!
