Today was my day off. Yesterday was supposed to be my other day off but I had to go in for training on a new machine. It was a craptastic class, not because of the teacher, but because management once again let it get out of hand. I did learn a few things though, even standing why back on the fringes of things. I was pretty miserable on top of it all because of this stupid cold or whatever the heck cooties I'm battling.
So today I had no real plans and would have been content to just nap all day. That didn't happen. The morning was still miserable because of my cold cooties, and it was already super muggy even though it wasn't yet hot outside. Hubby's friend and ride to work texted at the last minute to say he wasn't going to work today so hubby had to scramble to get his truck ready to go. He'd had it in the yard with the trailer hooked up and all the wood cutting and cleanup tools in and around it. Also, the alternator has been giving alerts on his mobile diagnostic thingie. He did make it to work on time and a guy even helped him change the alternator after, so things worked out in the end.
Had a big argument with Casey when he got home from work this morning. Not only does he hog our internet, he uses up our data for our phones. He's been warned several times and he just doesn't seem to do anything to change his ways. Last night we got the alert that our data was used up, and I was pissed. (No, we don't have an unlimited data package. I don't think Verizon even has one.) So when he got home he got Mom Lectured, and he got all defensive. He's like "I don't know what you want me to say!" and I told him "I don't want you to SAY anything! I want you to change whatever you're doing!" He was mad. I was mad. Over phone data. Yeah, nice beginning to my leisurely day off.
I did the dishes, cleaned up a bit around the house, got laundry started. I made a quick trip into town to put gas in my car and get some Dew (our Elixir of Life, remember), and got a little cranky because we have road construction . . . out here in the boonies . . . on both sides of where we live, so if we want to go anywhere we have to take winding backroad detours.
I'd spent some time last night browsing old blog posts to see which fall and winter scents I'd loved last year. I continued that today and made a couple lists from a few different vendor sites. Then I went through my current stash to see just what I had, and decided it didn't matter because there are just certain scents now that are my absolute fall and winter must-haves. I placed a Sweet Fixations order, then had a Dessa's Homespun Scents order ready to go but backed out with second thoughts. Later in the day I had a 'Screw it! Do it!' moment and went ahead and placed that order too. I still want to place a Country Lane Keepsakes order but that will probably be small because I'm not as familiar with her fall and winter scents. But now I'm not sure . . . do I haul them when I receive them, or wait until closer to fall? Maybe when I receive them so people have time to order for themselves if they see any they like, huh?
I watched I Wanna Hold Your Hand today. I love that movie! It's about the Beatles first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, and a bunch of teens that are trying to meet them. It's been a long time since I've seen it, so it was fun to watch. I should probably see if I can buy the DVD. It's one of those movies that you can watch over and over again and never get sick of it.
I also tried to watch Woman In Black 2 but gave up pretty darn early. I *HATE* movies that are visually dark, where you can't really see anything. And this was one of them. I get that it's supposed to be dark and creepy, but really? Staring at pretty much a blank black screen mainly produces feelings of frustration, not fear.
Well it's evening now and my cold cooties are acting up again. Things were pretty good through the afternoon, and I thought I'd finally kicked it but nope. I'll get this posted and got lay down and read for a while before bed.
How was your Wednesday?
