Days 480 & 481 and a space case

Well, I totally spaced out posting the blog yesterday. No good reason, just spaced it out.

Today did not work out exactly as I had planned. First of all, I had planned to sit in the recliner with a book all day. A book that "I" wanted to read! LOL. Anyway, then I found out I had to take some stuff to Serenity in Norman. Then I found out I needed to take Tasha to the wildlife refuge for a meeting about her summer job at 2:30, so I couldn't even leave for Norman until then. I had a low front tire so I went to the Co-op this morning to get it fixed. Since I was going to be driving to Norman today I asked them to check the other tires and make sure they were okay. They said the back ones would need to be replaced soon. Well, we had a blow-out on the way to the wildlife refuge! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To top it off, the other mom and kids that were going rode with us, so we were all stranded. We started changing the tire, but one of the lug nuts was stripped and the stupid hub cap key thing kept slipping and we could not get those two nuts off! Finally, I called our preacher and asked if he could come help us. Then a good Samaritan stopped to help. He got the tire off and was getting the spare on just as the preacher got there. The preacher had brought an air tank which was good because the spare was low. So we were on the road again, went to the meeting and made it back home safely. Obviously we're not taking the van to Norman tonight. Tom needed his car so I have to wait until tomorrow morning and run to Norman and take Serenity the stuff. Not exactly how I wanted to spend my mother's day. I'm having a huge pity party for myself right now. Anyone else want to come?

Days 477, 478, and 479: submitted my final paper for this semester

I submitted my last paper for this semester last night. So I am done. Well sort of. As I mentioned, I have to work up that proposal for my capstone class in the fall. But I"m giving myself a break for a few days before I get to work on that. But I don't want it hanging over my head all summer long.

Also last night was my last club meeting for this session. Now both child care associations and the mother's club are on break for the summer. What in the world will I do with myself? HA!

Hope everyone is having a great week. Yesterday was so strange. There was this lovely blue color and round orange thing in the sky. Today it is supposed to get up to 90.

Days 474, 475, 476 and still not done with my homework

I am not done with my homework assignments yet so it will be quiet around here until I am done. Sorry for the break, but schoolwork comes first! (At least that's what I always tell my kids).
