Couch Surfing

December 28th, 2010 at 12:56 am

DD3 has a friend who has been couch surfing for a couple of months. (aka- homeless teen that has friends with couches) While DS, DIL and the babies were here, there wasnt a good solution that I could offer her. They moved out, and now DD3s friend moved in. SHe didnt have a bed, so I found one for $200 and we picked it up today. She is so excited that she has a bed again. I am glad we could help! I will be charging her $50 per week. $25 will go into savings for her on the get on her feet and the other $25 can either be paid through helping out with chores or will help pay for groceries.

I took down the decorations today. I love decorating for the Holidays, but I am always glad to put my house back to normal as soon as Christmas is over.

I finished reading my first book on my Kindle. I really enjoyed the book and loved having it on the Kindle and being able to just flick it on an off as time allowed. Ive downloaded about 25 free books I have lots of options.

Christmas afternoon and the day after we traveled to see the hubs father- a long drive each way (3 hrs there, 5 hrs home because of weather)..and the visit with his dad was less than desirable as dad is going thru a divorce and 'dating'...Our first time meeting 'her' and she felt it appropriate to sit on his lap and make out, giggle and whisper in his ear while we looked at the ceiling, floor, wall..AwKWARD.

eww. Nothing worse than being stuck that far from home in an uncomfortable situation. The hub had planned to stay longer on SUnday, but thankfully wanted to leave EARLY because of that.

Sigh. we got home late yesterday afternoon and then had all the kids and grandbabies over for DD3s birthday party. It was soooo LOUD with all them here. DD3 enjoyed herself, so it was worth all the work. Smile

I have REALLY ENJOYED the peace and quiet today. I think the hub and I are going to the matinee tomorrow to see True Grit.

But tonight....just enjoying this leisure life of vacation!!

Life is very good!
