Mondays are never dull
Monday always had a surprise for me. And today it was a snake on the steps. I don't like snakes. I will never kill a snake unless I feel threatened. I felt threatened. Don't worry, he's not dead. Maybe a little deaf because I screamed like someone had attacked me. Then ran back into the house, shut and locked the door. After a few minutes, I went out the back door. No sign of the snake but I have a plan. It is time to cut the grass. My husband doesn't really like for me to cut the grass. I think he is worried that I may pass out or something. The grass has gotten very high so Stella and I are going to cut it. Stella is the name of my lawnmower. She is red feisty little mower so I named her Stella. I love Mondays because it is never a dull day for me.
I am becoming very tech savy. The new camera and photo printer that my hubby brought was given to me to read all the directions and get up and running. I DID it!! It took four hours and a trip to Office Max but I did it. The photos look great. I took a picture of one of the James Dean photos in my room. My husband got it for me for our wedding anniversary two years ago. And while at Office Max, I found this Tol pen for $2.99 that is awesome. It writes sooooooooo smooth. I feel like I am getting my groove back a little. I spent Sunday--reading the newspaper and magazines, eating junk food, napping and watching Hellboy. The boys had a father/son day taking pictures with the new camera. I even work on a list of 25 things about me that I'll post in a few days.
I have started working out a little again. I am trying to stress about my stomach and going with the flow. On a sad note, I found out that a friend I used to work with has been diagnosis with lung cancer. The news caught me off guard. She is such a sweet lady who took good care of us at the paper and the paper itself. It is true that cancer affects each and every one of us.
