Thursday's Random Activities

Well, it all started at 12:30 a.m. with a phone call from my hubby's brother from down Mexico way. He wasn't being unthoughtful by calling at such an ungodly hour; he knows his brother works many late nights and was simply trying to catch him at home! I spoke just a moment with Elias, wondering what was wrong! He seemed calm enough and was only offering small talk. I awoke my hubby. As I listened, I could tell that his brother was wanting to come see us on his vacation, possibly in April. Would we be able to pick him up in Orlando if he landed there? So that was exciting and all good! I think he wants to come to the states to do some shopping before their little sis graduates from law school in June. He always sees that she has the best! The best laptop, the best clothes, the best perfume, the best jewelry! Since he is a bachelor and makes BIG MONEY- I say - "Hey, Why not!?"

Speaking of my sister in law's graduation from law school! We had thought all of us would be flying down in June, but it is looking more and more like my husband will be the only one going. There are several reasons for this. I could feel the disappointment in his mom's voice on the phone yesterday when we told her the boys and I weren't coming. There is still a chance we all can go. It just depends on a few things falling into place first. We are continuing to keep it before our Heavenly Father in prayer.

My husband had the day off today, but had to get up and out of the house early today to have our SUV into the dealership for some work by 8:00 a.m. Nothing is wrong with it, but it was time to change all the fluids and filters, get an oil change, rotate the tires, add free-on to the air, just maintenance stuff which came to a total of $624.00 and some odd change! Agustin had the guy at the dealership give him a ride to my mom's since he was already in Tampa. He spent a quiet relaxing day there with my dad. I stayed home! I began my day by eating a boiled egg so I would have something on my stomach before taking my meds. I then checked my email and blogged awhile, waiting for some pain relief to kick in. Finally at about 10:30, I was feeling relaxed and ready to sleep. I went back to bed and slept until 3:00 p.m.!!! Yes, you read that right, but please keep in mind, I had only slept about 2 hours the night before and Shane was over at my mom's. It was quite nice actually!

I did get up, have coffee, read my Bible, got dressed, checked my bank statement online, and watched a little Food Network! That made me hungry, so I went foraging for food! Aw hah! There was half of my foot long Philly Steak and Cheese sub-sandwich left from last night! I warmed that up and YUM! I then chatted with Josh a little.

I then cleaned my two bathrooms, floors and all. Dusted the family room and windexed the glass entertainment center. Then hubby returned home and wanted the other half of his sub-sandwich as well. So I didn't even have to cook tonight! How good is that?

After he was on line awhile IMing with my sister, he turned the computer over to me. So here I am finishing up my day, doing one of my favorite things! Blogging and posting! But I must bid you adieu and go spend some time with my dear husband. We have the whole house to ourselves tonight!

Oh my sweet goodness $624.00 just for maintenance, I think I would have passed out.

Will be praying God’s will for you and your family as you decide about your SIL’s graduation.

Nights when you don’t have to cook are always good ones in my book. ;-)

Have a great weekend Pam.
