Something in the CPU part of my computer was tripping but I could still use it if I was motivated enough to do so, which was rare, but now my monitor has died so it's a wrap for at home blogging until I move somethings around. I have another monitor but the motivation to swap things out and play with cords have not hit me yet.
I am thinking about buying a brand new laptop. This thought is big because most of my tech stuff has been handed down to me for free so actually paying for a tech toy is super scary to me! LOL!
I was VP of Membership for the PTA for a few days. The principal was persistent in trying to get me to say yes I'd do it. But when I finally said "I do" another officer had signed someone up! YAY!
Spring carnival at Pooka's school was yesterday and boy was I tired when it was over. Here is a short clip of Pooka on the Velco Wall and a picture of every elementary school students dream...to smash a cream pie into the face of your principal! LOL!
Yesterday I officially got the offer for the weekend job. So in May I will be bringing in another check! YAY! So this makes 3 part time jobs and 1 volunteer gig and 2 other jobs that I have but don't count because they never call me to come in! My plate is officially full and I am not applying or signing up for anything else this year that requires a longer than 2 or 3 day time commitment. Period.
Next weekend I am going to the beach. My father's wife told me more than a few times that she would love to keep Pooka for a weekend and cranked up the volume when I told her I may be getting a weekend job. The only reason I was hesitant was because they live about 80 miles away from me. She wanted to have her this weekend but since we have a cookout to attend I told her she could have her next weekend. The beach is about 45 minutes away from where they live so I figured that if I work next Saturday (here at the state job) I could ride out to the beach when I'm done working, do whatever floats my boat, spend the night, shoot the breeze a bit more in the sand, then pick Pooka up on my way back home. Sure Pooka would love to be at the beach too but this is going to be a mommy only outing. The more I think about it, the more excited I get! :-)
Oh I have to blog about a convo I had with the office manager of the industrial rehab job. We were talking about the death of Timothy Wright and some how Charlie Wilson's cancer came up. For some reason she thought Aaron Hall was older than Charlie Wilson. I was like "girlllllll Charlie Wilson is older than Aaron Hall, Charlie Wilson, Charlie Wilson sang with the Gap Band!" The next statement from the manager's mouth made my jaw drop...literally...
"The Gap Band? Never heard of them."
Granted, I am 3 or 4 years older than her but she is black and listens to urban music!
So I started singing the chorus to "Outstanding" and she was like "ohhhhhhh". Then she wouldn't believe that CW sang with them or how old he is (55). She could not get over the fact that he was older than her mother! It was toooooooooooo funny!
I told her to call her momma and tell her she didn't know who the Gap Band was! ROFL!
That made my day!
