wow, sleep in one morning and it takes me half the day to catch up here!

Went out right away to pick up a few things and could not believe how hot it was already. The temperature continues to climb. I cannot remember the last time it was so hot here.

Took some Tylenol and my headache is going away now.
Cleaning up around the house, hoping power stays on with everyone having ac on full blast. Even the cats are sprawled out on the floor trying to stay cool.
My son is home doing the same. LittleCS is working with a kids camp at the church today. This is a day camp that runs for one week. I hope they at least keep everyone indoors away from this heat. My eldest is sleeping having just got off a night shift this morning. Good thing she decided to buy that air conditioner a couple of weeks ago.

I cannot wait for our Christmas in July Party! People are even decorating for the special weekend. Go on over to the thread to check it out, Christmasstar has her picture of her decorations already out. Anyone else going to decorate? I leave out a few decorations out all year and plan to put a couple more small things out. Take a picture if you do and post over there: Christmas in July

I had a great birthday yesterday. My mom make spaghetti, substituting turkey for ground beef. You couldn't tell the difference, and I love her spaghetti sauce. She simmers it all day with fresh tomatoes, onions, etc. Yum, yum! Oh, and I got a very cool Star Trek t-shirt!

I just realized my driver's license expired yesterday. These days, they want you life history to get a replacement. Birth certificate, SS card, copies of utility bills (to verify your address), etc. That's seriously crazy. And to top it off, I had lost my birth certificate some where along the way. Usually, that's not a big deal, but I was born in Germany while my dad was stationed there. So, I had to apply to the State Dept. for a replacement Report of Consular Birth Abroad form. It took forever (and a big check), but I finally got it last week.

I'll be glad when things settle down!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Happy late birthday! I'm sorry I missed it yesterday.

Well friends, another day and a another set of job rejections. I did not get the job I interviewed for last week, and got some emails regarding some other positions I had put in for. Trying not to get discouraged...I know something will turn up.

I do appreciate everyone's encouraging words and prayers when I went on that interview, though! You guys are awesome!

I feel for you, have been in that spot a few times in the last few years. I love my current job but wish it was more hours. I am also training to teach cake decorating classes to adults.
I got through this and so will you!

That definately does help! Just not the same as a good ol movie on tv & watching it "together" I'm thinking tonight I'll watch a Christmas movie on Netflix while walking on the treadmill. It's WAY too hot to walk outside!!
