That does sound like fun MsPurrl

I worked a few hours this morning, so I think I'll just stay in and watch fireworks on tv in the nice A/C and watch the cat get nervous from the firecracker sounds in the neighborhood.

ugh what a totally lame holiday. We spent the morning doing nothing. Then about 1:00ish we decided to go to a pizza place I've wanted to check out since I got here. The owners also have a fine dining restaurant and one of my coworkers also works there. So I've just been curious about both but mainly the pizza place since it's more affordable. Anyways...totally not worth it. The food was ok but the portions were small for what they charged. We all left a little hungry and disappointed. After lunch we stopped at Borders and then came home. We've been here ever since. My sister's friend has been here so many times that the last thing she wants to do is go sightseeing. She'd rather sit on the couch and talk to my sister or help my sister's boyfriend build his pool table that he's putting in the living room

I work for the next 4 days in a row, which will be hard after having almost a week off. Well with the exception of working on Tuesday. I'm sure it's going to be really slow, which means all we do is clean. My Chef is a madman right now over cleanliness in the bakery. If anything is out of place he flips out on everyone, even if we actually were busy that day. He goes on vacation next week for the rest of the month As much I really do like him about 90% of the time, I'm really looking forward to his long vacation. I think a lot of people are.

My brother and his wife bought some land out in the country along a river. They and two other family units in our extended family have towed their "campers" up there last night and set up. I guess one of the young 'uns even set up a frame with a sheet on it and back-projected the movie "National Treasure II" last night. They are really "roughing it." Anyway, it sounds like fun! Just wish my sister who moved to Florida two years ago could be here, too.
My kind of roughing it. I really enjoyed National Treasure II

I worked all day. Deader than dead in the afternoon. Time stopped at around 3. Scarfed down food when I got home. A friend picked me up and we headed back to her place. We then walked over to the mini golf place, played a round and then watched the fireworks (which are right next door).
They are always good there but I think they did some cutting back. Not as many unique fireworks.

tired and heading to bed. I can sleep in tomorrow

My 4th of July was pretty low-key, too...slept in, did some laundry, ran some errands, watched part of the Twilight Zone marathon and got creeped out on the way downtown that there was NO ONE in our typically hopping neighborhood (we normally cannot drive down the street Thursdays through Sundays as it is narrow anyway and people park on both sides of the street for bars, the bike trail, etc...there wasn't a single car on the road last night), went to PF Chang's, watched the Freedom Blast off the Regions Bank building. Not bad. The 4th is on a Saturday next year and a Sunday the year after...I want to go to Boston!!

It was a great time out at Camp Walter Raleigh--that's what they decided to name the little gathering--Walter for my brother, whom we say reminds us of the character Walter in "The Big Lebowski", and Raleigh for his son, whose birthday it was. Lots of good food (ate too much, as usual ), good people. The three "campers" were arranged in a U shape, with two mesh-sided tents for the food as the fourth side, and the fire pit in the center. Two more sleeping tents on the outside of the square. Volleyball and croquet set up in the open. Down the hill toward the "bottomland" and the river was where "Walter" had the big grill set up--burgers, dogs, and brats. Awesome fireworks display, then Rals's birthday cake, and the movie: the latest "DieHard."

I feel very lucky and blessed to have this wonderful group of family nearby. The only ones missing were my sister and her hubby who moved to Florida two years ago, and her daughter who has been in Florida since 1994--I really miss them at gatherings like this.

My super exciting day!

Day 1 of Kelly's Home Alone:

- Watched tennis on tv. Went to bank. Went to casino. Ate Mexican food. Hair now smells like cigarettes.

there's a U2 poster on ebay that I've been searching for at least 5 years. Outside of Red Rocks Edge (that's at my parents house :sniff: ) it's the one U2 poster i've wanted. Now that I found it, I can't convince myself to buy it Do I need it?

I should know better not to go to ebay when I have no extra money.

my sister's boyfriend is building a pool table in the living room. Whatever he's spraying is upsetting the dog, cat, and me. It's a strong smell. I can't wait until he's done.

my sister's friend from home is in town this weekend. Of course I practically had all of last week off with nothing to do and then have to work all weekend. They just went out to the bars. We've only gone out once since I've been here. Part of it's because neither of us don't ever want to spend money. But I would have gone tonight since we have company. I have to work bright and early tomorrow.

I love how 4th of July fireworks always seem to take place on the days following the 4th as well as the 4th. Especially if the 4th is on a weekend. It was really noisy about a half hour ago and now all I can here is helecopters. Someone needs to go to bed now!

Note to self: Make sure you close the cap on your B & B sea island cotton body lotion.

Got home and plopped on one side of the bed, straightened out my legs and all of a sudden I could smell the lotion. Looked under the folded comforter and there was the lotion

Had a freaky dream last night. Me and some co-workers were at a funeral(don't know whose)..........my pastors were there also, as was the Milw. Archbishop T. Dolan. I am not Catholic so this was a bit out of the norm when paired with my pastors . We all went downstairs to a reception afterwards. Banquet tables were set up with chairs...........I sat down and looked down the table and Mary Ann (the lady in our dept. who passed away very suddenly in January) was smiling and waving at me.................I told the co-workers who I was sitting with that Mary Ann was down on the other end of the table waving..........they looked and couldn't see her. I would then kind of become one of them and not be able to see her............I would then fade back into me and see her smiling and waving at me again.
It was so real and left me feeling a bit freaked out.
