Flights, tans, fees, sales and a movie...

April 15th, 2009 at 03:15 am

The travel agent emailed today and THANKFULLY got our flight changed back to route through LAX (sorry basselle....)So, I am back on track for vacation. I tanned again today for 7 minutes...THEN, walked out of the salon and into a SNOWSTORM...huh? Only in Oregon. And have a repeat appointment again for tomorrow. Cant really tell yet, but hopefully it is helping.

I returned the last of my overdue library books today...and paid my $9.20 in fees. (ugh) Then I stopped by the college and picked up my final paper from last semesters class. (A+...and the teacher wrote some great, encouraging comments!!)

After work, I stopped at Kohls and used my $20 Kohl's cash. I got a big floppy hat for Puerto Vallarta half off for $12, some black slack socks for work, 60% off, a WONDRFUL candle 50% off, and a gorgeous faux diamond ring 50% off. Why the ring? Well, it looks very real and I will wear it to PV instead of my real and very sentimental jewelry...just in case anything happens. The faux ring? $6.49. No biggy if it is lost or stolen, but it looks real to me. My rings are all very special- one was a gift from my parents when I was 16, another was my dads pinky ring, and the third is a ring that my dad gave to my mom 30 years ago...and then, after my brother died, they put a diamond that he had in the center and gave it to me. If I lost ANY of the three, I would be forever sad. So, they will stay home in the safe deposit box.

My biggest surprise today was a phone call from my DIL apologizing that they had taken so long to talk to me about a repayment plan for the money I loaned them. I wracked my brain and could not recall a loan...and then it hit me...I loaned them almost $1300 to catch up their house payment while we were on our holiday vacation...and I had completely forgot! wow. I told her to come up with a plan that fit their budget and thanked her for being so honest and reminding me. wow.

I got home tonight and DD3 had rented 'Marley and Me'...we are watching it now and it is so funny. I bred Labs for years...and know quite well how much 'puppy' labs have in them, especially when they don't get attention.

Did I mention that DD3 got the movie...and she is watching it with me?? That, in itself, is best of all. Smile

UPDATE...ok, Marley and Me, not a comedy through and through...but such a touching film. RIP Gracie.

    Yeah, Marley and Me - not so much a comedy. I went through a lot of tissues watching that. But still, a good movie and a good story.

    That is so cool that your dd3 got it. Progress. Smile

    Hi Ray,

    I'm really, really behind in reading blogs. I watched Marley and Me, also. I cried a lot too!

    BUT...I got a new puppy. Her mom was a yellow lab...her dad...??? Who knows? I'm begining to think Great Dane! My sweet "little" puppy is now 5 months old and weighs 43 pounds! She's going to be HUGE! Her lab heritage shines thru every day though with the stuff that she can find to shread! There was a whole tree branch waiting for me last week when I came home. I can't figure out how she drug it out of the woods.
