The hubby and I just celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary on Fri.
WHAT'S HAPPENING - It was a pretty busy weekend. Thur. was my last day with the kids until the last two weeks in Aug (I will have 2 kids full time for 2 weeks). Friday was my day of celebration - first day with no kids! My mom-in-law and I went shopping. We went to Mano's dinner in Ithaca for coffee and toast. Then hit the shopping trail - Kohl's (I bought a couple new outfits for summer), Bed, Bath, and Beyond (I had to buy a new bathroom scale, I broke my other one. YES, I broke the scale, OK?), Walmart (bought heavy duty rubber floormats for my new car), and Barnes and Nobel (didn't buy anything but made a huge list of books I want).
When we got home from shopping I found a beautiful bouquet of flowers on the porch! My hubby was still working in PA so he called and ordered them for me! How sweet is that? He got home on Sat. night.
On Sunday we went out for breakfast, then went north to take up all his paperwork and drop off a trailer at his work office. We went to Dunkin Donuts and went to Walmart and got a few groceries.
It has been so humid and muggy here! Last night was the worst night of sleeping. I just laid there moaning. I was so sticky, at one point I pulled my jammie top up so my whole tummy was exposed. We had on the ceiling fan and the window fan, but it made no difference. Then we had a real nice T-storm, very bright lightening!. Even that didn't cool it down. When I woke up this morning the DJs were even talking about it on the radio! - "Last night was the worst night for sleeping so far!" So I guess it wasn't just me.
TV - Well my least fav.girl (Nina) stays on "Design Star" and Trent (nice guy) goes home.
Someone I don't care about (Cristina) went home on "SYTYCD". There was this one dance with Lauren (my fav. girl) it was about an abusive relationship and her fighting back, it brought me to tears! She danced it with such feeling.
"Ice Road Truckers" is good! Love Jack Jesse! Can't stand Lisa - what an airhead!
Not watching much of anything else. A lot of HGTV! heeheehee
KNITTING - Not much knitting lately! Sorry, I will have to get back into it. I have to finish that tank. And I would like to build a couple more pairs of socks.

Ways to keep cool!

2. Iced Vanilla Latte', my new fav. drink!
3. Shorts and a tank top
4. Turn on all the fans
5. Nothing, Nada, zilch! I mean really, nothing really works when it is that hot and humid, am I right?
