Tuesday's Trivial Tidbits

  • The kids came back (at 2:00 a.m. Saturday!) exhausted but had a great time at our church youth camp in Taos, New Mexico.
  • The new washer and dryer which were supposed to be delivered Saturday just in time to wash all their dirty clothes? Delayed - the dryer arrived at the store damaged. Hopefully, just a couple more days. . . .
  • The good thing about a washateria is you can wash everything at once - 4 machines going simultaneously makes for quick work.
  • The bad thing about a washateria is that no matter how low you set the dryer, the clothes still come out so hot you can hardly handle them to fold them.
  • Summertime, and the livin' doctor's appointments are easy. At least they are easy to schedule! Today it was the oral surgeon for a consult and to set up wisdom teeth removal for my boy. Tomorrow we head to the eye doctor for my girl and see about trading glasses for contacts.
  • Why is it always the case that when you send off for something, they manage to immediately deposit your check, but take their sweet time about sending you what you requested? Still waiting on the Texas Department of Public Safety paperwork to arrive to start driver's ed with my boy. But the check cleared the bank two weeks ago, barely 4 business days after I mailed it.
  • In the midst of all my fun reading for pleasure and reviews, I just realized I have to do my continuing education for my nursing license renewal before my birthday in early August. Which I can fortunately do through a home study/online course. But somehow, reading about H1N1/Swine Flu isn't nearly as exciting as the books in my stack!
  • The quiz below made me laugh. It's nice to know I'm the kind of cookie I like best. (And doubly nice to know it's been around longer than I have!)

You Are a Chocolate Chip Cookie
Traditional and conservative, most people find you comforting.
You're friendly and easy to get to know. This makes you very popular - without even trying!

Ugghhh! I loathe washaterias! I remember spending hours at them when we were first married and had no washer and dryer. You're right about being able to all the laundry at once...unless it's really busy and there are rude people who push you out of the way to get their clothes in first.

Ok..ok. Deep, cleansing breaths. It was a long time ago....calm down, calm down....OK. I'm better. :)
