A sprinkler a day...


It was a wonderful day. I love Tuesdays.

I work from home on Tuesdays. I get more work done than any other day plus have time for lots of other things I want to do, because I breeze through my work due to the lack of interruptions.

At the end of my work day I got my nails done pretty pink with beautiful designs. (I get my designs for free because I'm such a faithful client. Jesus has blessed me. See what tithing will do for you, my friends? In addition to knowing you are obeying the Word of God, you might also get free nail designs! LOL) When my hands and feet are freshly maincured it always gives me a better "put together" feeling.

When Larry got home it was time to go on our date. We've had this planned almost a month. I was so excited for a date night with REGULAR food! We have been looking forward to going on a date, after our fast was over, where we would be unlimited in our choices. Even though we could go anywhere, we chose a place right in our neighborhood -- Buffalo's. We did wings, steak, shrimp, etc. It was awesome, and we just talked and enjoyed one another's company. Bernie and Lisa watched Savanna for us. Dustin had plans for a date with Casey (takin' after his Daddy) so we had to make other arrangements for Savanna but it's never a problem. She went over and had tacos with them and swam.

We came home after our date and I wanted to walk a few miles. I have to weigh in tomorrow which I want like a hole in the head after being a carnivore extraordinaire the last three days, but I don't regret it. Right now I am still bowing down in Thanksgiving to God and praising Him for red meat. I'm not sorry I'm eating it, I've just needed to work harder on burning it off. I called Lisa and left a message that I was going but she didn't get it in time to meet me. On my way home she was driving up to the gym. She picked me up and instead of me walking the last mile or so home I went to the gym with her and we did weights for about 20 minutes.

On our way out of the gym at about 9 pm we were walking to the parking lot and all of a sudden on come the Lexington Oaks sprinklers...the big ones. Yep. We were caught in the middle of them and got all wet. We were trying to weave in and out of them and miss them but to no avail. I tried to run up the hill and got stuck up there in a worse one. Finally she said, "oh well, we're stuck..." I said, "I guess I'm doing my hair again when I get home..." (Styling) No biggie. It was quite humorous, actually. But I did say, "what are they going putting these sprinklers on when the gym doesn't close til' 10 pm?" Go figure.

I'm home now and we're checking out American Idol that we Tivo'd. David Archeleta just melted my heart. That boy has a voice that's like butter.

Future plans for tonight include spending some more time with the Teeb and capping off our night together. Mmmhmmm.
