No Obligations & on a Saturday......
Topic: Just Thoughts

I have the day off and I'm thrilled! I've got housecleaning to catch up on and my truck is being worked on, so I have no intention of going anywhere today! Which, is actually a very nice feeling.... Samantha is taking a nap. She spent the night at a friends and I'm sure they stayed up very late, only to have to wake up early for competition cheerleading practice this morning. She is slightly worn out, I would imagine. The coaches work them to the bone.... 

Samantha has been waiting forever to get the 4th book in Stephanie Meyers Vampire series, Breaking Dawn. It came out a few weeks ago, but I didn't have the money to buy it for her, especially because it's new it's only out in hard-cover. She brought it home from school yesterday, a borrowed copy from her friend! So this afternoon, she came home from cheerleading, with the intention of reading, and is out like a light! I don't think she made much of a dent in the first chapter.

We are planning to sell cookie dough later today, once she finally awakens. We'll go house-to-house, and it'll be a nice walk, if nothing else. We still owe about 200.00 on her cheerleading uniform & supplies and if we sell 40 boxes, she will have a 0 balance - a very good thing indeed!  40 boxes is a high goal, at 15.00 a box, but I guess we can give it a shot!

As for me, until we leave, I plan to putt around the house.  I've got dishes to do, laundry, and of course there's always a little blogging. I love having no obligations, a very rare happening!

I'm having a lazy day too.  Waiting on my little one to wake up from a nap so we can maybe go to my inlaws and swim.  Although, I'm realllllllllllly not in the mood to venture over there.  I'm enjoying the nothing-I-have-to-do afternoon...

 Hi from Michele's!

Thanks for stopping by.  Believe it or not, I grew up in Patrick County!  My husband's family is from Laurel Fork (he is a Turman....lots of Turmans up there), and my mother grew up in Galax.  We looooove Floyd!  So hello from a former SW Virginian.


Hope you enjoyed your day off, and glad Michele sent you so we could "meet".

I don't know where you live yet.   Are you and Sammy on your own?   I thought the post below was going to be about farting because of the title and photos!  Michele blew me this way.

Michele sent me  here to say hi.  I hope you have good luck selling those boxes of dough...  after four years of Girl Scout cookie sales, my daughter decided to bag scouts for 4-H (I was secretly relieved as I was the one running her around the neighborhood.  Good luck with your new job (working nights has to be tough); it sounds like you've been though some tough times, blessings upon you future.
