I got lost. . .

Made Chocolate No-bake cookies waiting for them to cool.

Had a good morning, but now I feel kinda blah. . . . hmmm oh well tomorrow will be a crunch at work as I go back to wrestling with a system call for a program that is reluctant to run under normal conditions. . .

Here comes another red line of thunderstorms. If you want to see what it looks like, look at my posted pic this morning and substitute tonight's time.

I've had enough of this cr*p... where's the sunshine?!?

And I'm home! Kids have new shoes and some clothes. They were fed. And then we had Italian Ices. I really like those.

Never did the new school clothes shopping for son. We'd go get him some new shoes but I was always buying him clothes when he was younger and he hated shopping when he was older.

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of smuggling our new school clothes back from the US.

I assume they are. The 14 year old chose ones that are tan, look like a burlap weave almost. Certainly nothing I would have thought he'd like.

Ended up not raining over here. We played capture the flag with waterbombs for ammo. It was fun.

We have a Skecher's outlet store in town that has really good prices. I love Skecher's but my niece thought they were not cool. My sister and I went and got shoes for ourselves and the boys, then my sister spots the same shoes her daughter had been wanting and calls her. Then she was upset because she didn't go shopping with us. Doesn't pay to be snobby.

This was before PWA existed (Lawl), so it's in Yammer. Tomorrow it's only supposed to be 97, so I think I might need to wear a scarf.

my niece wants to dress different this year IE not all Hollister, Abercrombie and Aeropostle. YAY! I'm taking her to Plato's Closet and Buffalo Exchange to shop. She's going to search for t-shirts online too.

At least half of the Plato's Closet here was used Hollister, Abercrombie and Aeropostle.

According to an article I read online recently, that's the current fad.

Ok, so the lady & her friend came to pick up the appliances. My fridge is HEAVY! Between the 3 of us, we got it into his truck on its side, lifted it and shoved it to the front of the bed.

THEN he picks up the dishwasher all by himself and puts it in the truck.

He was a slight man, probably about 5'8". Works construction though so he's probably strong. But still! Whoa.

Couldn't fit the oven in the truck so they're coming for that tomorrow.

She still likes their jeans. So she'll buy jeans & skirts there and maybe one or two shirts. Then look for other shirts elsewhere.

Used to be, she only would look at the newest stuff. When we went to the movies the other night we stopped in a couple of stores - she went straight for the clearance rack. I was so proud!

That's good. It'll be nice when they get the oven tomorrow and you are done with the appliances!

The extra piece for the oven looked nice. Much better than the hole! (forgot to tell you that)

Thanks! It did turn out quite nice.

After all the appliances are moved out, we need to clean out the garage. There's a fine white dust over everything from the painter dudes spray tent they set up to spray the doors. Gonna have to hose down the garage floor.

Right now I can't imagine a day when I won't be using every shelving unit I can find and wishing I had more, and the space for them!

These shelves are good for a child's or game room but don't go with regular decor. I have 3 that I'm selling. One is still upstairs in the guest room.

How many bedrooms are you looking for to buy?

My current house has exactly 2 closets, one in the master bedroom and one in the main hallway (between the bathroom and the front door). Between normal life clutter and kids stuff we have quite the assortment of shelving happening here. We are running out of shelves for board games and puzzles. Ver2 is using an "over the toilet" rack for her clothes, with an added pressure bar for her dresses (but it fit the space we had - her laundry hamper is under it, and it's next to the diaper table - bonus!).

and to think we really are trying to cut down the clutter in our lives. . . .

Three with a study/office or a formal living/dining that I can use as an office. Prefer 1 story but will consider 2 story if Master is down. Split bedroom is a must.
