Well, it rained cats and dogs today, so we did not get to go on our field trip. It was really a blessing in disguise. After having Field Day on Friday I was still fried and having a field trip to the zoo today would have done me in. So, it all worked out in the end. We are going to try and reschedule the trip for one of our moving days so the kids won't have to be in the room when the movers come to move our stuff. Yes, we think it's just brilliant. Let's hope it all works out!
We have tomorrow off of school, so we can V-O-T-E! I am so excited I can't stand it. I love to vote. This year's election is so exciting too. I told my kids today that no matter who wins tomorrow we will be making history in one way or another. It's just neat to be a part of it.
Zoe and Zorro are going to the doggie spa tomorrow and while they are there I have a ton of errands to do. Zorro needs his meds picked up at Walgreen's and I have a few household things to take care of. It is so nice to have a day off during the week! I also have some major knitting to do. Mom's b-day is tomorrow and I have The Sunday Market Shawl to finish up. Yep. It was supposed to be a Mother's Day present. But. You. Know. Life just got in the way. I am taking it with me when I go and vote just in case there is a wait.
If you have been out and about lately you probably have noticed that Christmas has thrown up in most major stores. This really bothers me. I am a proud member of The Society for the Preservation of Thanksgiving. Hello, Turkey Day is an important holiday! Anyway, it's about this time of year that a few things that I like a whole lot start to appear....
1) Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash: Folks I buy as much of this as I can get! It only comes out during the holiday season. If you are lucky, most of your batch will last all the way until April! I am going on a hunt for this tomorrow. I scored some at the evil mart a few days ago, but I need to replenish my stash. This stuff is yummy good. Me likey. ALOT. Try it!
2) Southern Comfort Eggnog- This stuff is deadly good. It is so thick that if you try and drink it with a straw, you will have a great facial work out. I was never an eggnog fan until I had this stuff. The original flavor is my favorite, but the vanilla will do in a pinch. Again, I buy tons of this right up until the day after Christmas. Me Likey. Alot. Alot. Alot.
3) Oil of Olay Winter Retreat- Ok, I admit, I am not much of a lotion fan. I love my philosophy smell goods, but overall I am just not a lotion person... unless it is philosophy. Well, in the winter I get crazy dry skin. So much in fact, that I can only use philosophy's Purity Made Simple to shower and take a bath with. But, I have a new discovery. Oil of Olay has come out with a body wash called Winter Retreat. It smells vanilla-ish and it makes your skin feel great. It's a real treat for your shower and your skin. And, I can't eat it, which is a good thing.
Well, I'm gonna run. Even though we have an extra hour, I'm still not used to it. I feel like I should be sleeping right now and it's only 9:30. The Z's are already in the bed, under the electric blanket asleep. I'm going to join them. Philosophy is coming on at 10 on QVC.. so I am off to watch, not buy. But maybe the guy with the white beard and red suit is watching......or maybe Zorro is watching and is going to shop online.....
