After 27 days of rain, it’s finally NOT raining! The sky is clear blue and the sun is out and it’s just beautiful outside. Which also means it’s probably going to be hot now. Oh well. We’ve managed to escape the triple digits so far (not so much for poor Phoenix and Las Vegas).
I’ve had a couple of days off work and it’s been nice. The 4th was fun – went to Brother’s house and, ate too much food, and then we shot off fireworks until the police came. haha Sweetie Boy told me he liked holding sparklers and bottle rockets until “the police came and ruined firework day.” snicker
Thursday I had a business meeting most of the day but the outcome was good. Mom stayed with Sweetie Boy while I was away and she let him play on the computer, watch Spiderman 2. They had a good time hanging out together. I was exhausted by the time I got home Thursday so Mom stayed another night and we went out to dinner to a noisey Mexican restaurant.
Friday the handyman came by and looked at my rotting wood on the front of the house. He explained to me how to do it myself, but my mother wouldn’t hear of it. She made him fix it (hehe aren’t Moms great?) and he went to work. Afterward, since there was fresh wood on the front of the house under the roofline, we had to make a trip to Lowe’s to get exterior paint so I could get paint on it. I wanted to do that before it started raining again.
When we left Lowe’s, though, the clouds had started to break and there was actually a hint of blue sky. We hurried home and I painted the house while the Sweetie Boy ate his lunch. We hung around a little longer and then headed to Mesquite to take Mom home. We decided to take a quick jaunt to the mall so he could ride the glass elevator. We rode it up and down two times and then I bought myself someÂ perfume I was out of.
I drove home through afternoon traffic, cooked dinner, and then collapsed. It was a good day.
Today I think we’re going to go see Transformers. I hear it’s awesome. 🙂
