Just a quick note...

...to comment on how much effort it takes to fit in a date night around here! Tonight we are going to Portland to see Garrison Keillor, thanks to the tickets my husband gave me for Christmas. This means extra pushing to get Brian through his schoolwork and practice while I slam through a hospital employee newsletter; picking stalls and giving all the animals a midday meal so they can last until a very late chore time tonight; gathering up booster seat, supper, sleeping bag, and PJs for Brian, who will be picked up from youth group by my neighbor friend; taking Brian and a new friend to said youth group - dropping off three dozen eggs at someone's house on the way; then running as many errands as I can fit in before Rick and I take off for Portland to eat and hopefully r-e-l-a-x for a couple hours. Then we'll dash home (picking up a sleeping Brian on the way), do chores, fall into bed, and rise bright and early so I can show up in court first thing tomorrow morning because of my car accident. After that I'll connect with Rick to pick up Brian, spend the afternoon in the homeschooling co-op, and come home to squeeze in violin practice before supper. After supper I have GOT to finish Rick's clinic's W-2s (I need a new typewriter ribbon; one of today's errands). The next day my mother-in-law arrives for a five-day visit....

Boredom is not in your vocabulary! Good for you.

Enjoy Garrison. It is fun to see the show in person. I would go again. Maybe we will go up to the cities to see him a second time.

Thanks, Sharrie. We saw Garrison at the State Fair; it was a GREAT show! This time it's a smaller cast, so it will be different. And no, boredom is NOT in my vocabulary, which makes me less than patient with those who complain of it. There are so many wonderful things to do on top of all the work and responsibilities, I need a hundred lifetimes!

Gads! You make me want to crawl up in the chair and curl up with the cat.

Isn't that the way of it? What we do to have a little 'relaxation and fun'....sometimes too exhausted to enjoy it. ha.. I went with laser w-2s here at work for payroll several years back and I love them. I have to print out four copies but it beats the typewriter. I ALWAYS messed up on that silly w-3. Of course we also have a software program that prints them too, so I guess that would be a big hitch in going laser...
Tammy--p.s. have FUN!

Whew! Nuff said....

Typewriter ribbon! I haven't thought of them for years. I guess that's the only way to fill out a form that's not pdf.

Try to have some fun. You run at that pace all the time anyway - you're just getting to have some alone time - awesome!

Heather said...

I was thinking the same as Sharon - typewriter ribbon? Do they even sell it anymore?
I'm off to bed - you wore me out.
