It was such a fun lunch today! i met up with my friend Jennie at Applebee's and talked for about 2 hours. I really enjoyed myself a lot. I got to see a few scrapbooks that she had put together. One was from their first trip to Disney and the other was a family tree of her husbands family. They were both done so nicely! I have to put some of the pictures of Mom in a scrapbook of just her. I want to make one for each boy as well as one for myself. I think the boys would like it a lot. I just don't know if I will be able to sort the pictures enough to do that. I will try this summer when my sewing room is finished. I will have room there for crafts and scrapbooking too. All in all, I would have to say lunch was great. I love meeting with Jennie and hearing how the family is doing. She has 4 children, the oldest 2 are twins and they are 10, then an 8 year old with the 20 month old finishing the family up. She is also planning to go to the 25 year reunion this October. I wanted to check for sure. I am glad she is going too. I am planning to go and so is Kathy with her husband, Tony.
I realized that because I was so wiped on Sunday, I missed Army Wives! I did! I can't believe it! How did I miss it? I was in bed about 8 pm. I just couldn't stay awake anymore. I will hopefully be able to catch up with the episode on the Lifetime channel webpage. I am going to try to watch it tomorrow afternoon before lessons. I have never watched anything on the computer from the Internet before. It will be a new experience for me.
I have the heater on again tonight. I am just so cold! I have a sweatshirt on too, but still, I am cold. Tonight is NCIS! I love my NCIS! It is the season finale though, I think. That disappoints me, but hey, what can I say? I love my NCIS shows. I think I have been able to see the every episode of the last two seasons. I know I have missed a few of NCIS Los Angeles this season and last, but I think I have seen all of the regular NCIS episodes. I am sure if there is one that I have missed, I will catch it on the reruns. I don't watch a whole lot of TV, it just isn't interesting to me right now, but I don't miss the NCIS shows if I don't have to. I did watch a lot of HGTV but it is getting boring now that there are a lot of repeat shows. I have started reading a lot more again. The used bookstore is great for that. I need some new authors. I think I have read every book that my favorite authors have written, if not, it is darn close. I take suggestions, so if you have any, let me know. I was very into Kristin Hannah a few months ago. I have read almost all of her books now. I own about 8 or so of them now. I think I have read most of them 2 times through. I have read all the Harry Potter books at least 5 times now not to mention the Twilight Books at least 3 times each. I am not sure where the book New Moon is right now either. I know that it is downstairs somewhere. I can't wait until the books are back where they belong, on the bookshelves. I am bringing the bookshelf downstairs that is in the living room right now. I will replace it with another shorter bookshelf for the children's toys that I keep for siblings waiting for piano lessons taking place. Acer has asked if I had other toys other than the cars, legos, and stuffed animals. I had to say, I am sorry, no I don't. I don't know what other toys to add to the collection. I am on a very tight budget and would not be able to add any more for a few months. I will ask him for suggestions. Maybe there is something at the Thrift Store that the kids would like. It has to be a silent toy though and Acer really likes ones that make noises, not that I blame him, they are the fun ones.
Today was a really good day. I enjoyed lunch with Jennie and Charlie had a really good lesson. I gave him all the returnable cans because he and his girlfriend are collection them for the relay for life. He was happy about that. I was glad to help. I had at least $10 worth of returnables for him. I hope tomorrow is as good as it was today. I have 3 one hour lessons tomorrow starting with Carson, then Rick, and finally Beth. I am very glad about that. I do hope you are having a good day too.
