Tuesday ~ Movie Day

Tuesday usually means movie day.  We went to see "Mama Mia" and it was great!  Very bouncy & fun...the music was great. 

                              

We always go to the showing around noon or so and usually there's barely 12 people in the theater.  Today it was pretty full, mostly women of course but there were a few men who dutifully came along with their wives or significant others.

Anyway it gets "2 thumbs up" from me.  And I can't wait until it comes out on DVD, so I can get my own copy.

I'm really frustrated.....I am so far behind on alerts.  Last week I spent a lot of time working in the yard, dead heading, mowing, etc.  Then there was the air show on Saturday  and I actually mowed the back yard that evening.  Sunday afternoon I finally got the carpet shampooed.  What a job!!! It took me almost 3 hours and I just did the traffic areas. The upright Dirt Devil was fairly easy to use but it's still a huge job and I spent most of Monday recovering,

 Also our big approved once a year carport sale is coming August 1st-3rd.  So I'm gathering things for that.  I spent several hours yesterday going thru my two sock drawers, taking out tons (well not really tons) but a lot of new panty hose, trouser socks and knee highs.  After working all those years and having to dress "business casual" I always made sure I had plenty of hose on hand. The ones still sealed in their packages are priced and ready for the sale. 

Now it's on to other drawers, closets, etc.   Watch out Gabi...if you find a price tag on your back....that means you're for sale.

Please forgive me if I don't get around to all your entries...I'm just sort of  "up to my elbows in alligators" right now.

I'll stop by as time permits.    Linda

I'm glad you enjoyed Mamma Mia, it's got a lot of good reviews! Seems like you're busy, it's so easy to get behind with alerts. I've had three periods where my computer has been down, my longest list of alerts was over 800! Well done for getting the carpets shampooed, it's a big job! Jeannette xx

Oh no...not a price tag on Gabi..LOL.  I fully understand about being behind, it has become the story of my journal reading lately.  I am never caught up anymore.  Don't give it another thought Linda.  Glad to hear the movie was good, I look forward to seeing it when it comes on PPV or DVD.  Enjoy your day and don't work too hard!!!

Its a busy time of year for everyone. Summer keeps us out in the yard or cleaning out closets, yard sales, BBQs, poolside, plenty to do. Fun and chores both. We all fall behind on journals. Dont worry, we will all be here. :) Just take your time and dont feel pressured, its supposed to be fun right? ;) XOXOX Kelly

I applaud you!
I need to stop keeping up with alerts and do all the things you just accomplished, lol.....
I'm balancing between the two at the moment...
