I LOVE giving stuff away!

My new favorite website is! In the last week we have gotten rid of storm windows, a bookshelf, and dum dum da dum.....the piano!! It's fantastic. I recommend it to each and everyone!

I went to DSM on Sunday afternoon. Marn and I went and "scrapped" today. (We also got some scrappin' in last night while baby boo was napping). I got 13 pages done and I only spent 8.75 at the store. We had breakfast this morning at HY-VEE. It was like a retirement community in there. Wall to wall old people. I have seen my future and it looks like Hy-Vee at 9 am!

My plans for tomorrow are: go to the library and wait for my mom to come pick up the pickle crocks. That's it. :)

Sweet Freedom

My center did in fact close at 9:15pm on Monday the 24th. I am joyously unemployed! I've got so much going on. I'm like those retired people that say "I'm so busy I don't know how I had time to work!"


Despite getting WAY below a "F" on my math final (45%). I passed the class. My homework and other test score were much better. Since so many people did so badly on the test (read only 7 out of 25 passed the final) she eliminated the requirement that we pass the final to pass the test. The gods and my genius and loving husband were smiling on me!

Help me I'm melting!

It is so stinkin' humid outside. Yuck. I weeded my gardens that are in the shade. The ones in the sun will have to wait. The quack grass didn't put up much of a fight after all the rain we got last night. The storm managed to knock 3 little tomatos off the two plants I have. I wrestled what is left of the plant into cages. That's it for me outside today. There is plenty that I can work on inside.

Only 3 more days of work. YAY! I called the unemployment office today and spoke with 2 different people. The information they gave me was 100% contradictory. Trying to collect is going to be a real good time, I can already tell.

I hate math. I'm not too excited about my job either.

I'm prejudiced

Turns out I'm prejudiced. I didn't think I was racist, but it always turns out there are certain people I don't like dealing with. I was discussing it with Rikki. She said "You're not racist, but you might be prejudiced." I replied, "Against whom? The stupid people?" Then the little light came on. That's exactly who it is! I can't stand the stupid people!
