Gotta Love My Days Off
Yesterday was my day off. And as usual, I got tons of stuff done. And most of it all by noon. Sweet. So on Tuesday I heard on the radio that Harvest Happenings is going on this weekend and that they have a photo contest. They gave all of the rules and said you can drop off the pictures at a certain time on Tuesday or Wednesday. So I sat all day debating whether to do it or not. Since I had Wednesday off I could get some pictures printed and get them out there. So After work we headed to pat catans to get some mats and then I uploaded some a few pictures to the Walmart photo site to pick up on Wednesday morning. I don't expect to win anything, but at only $1 for entrance fee per picture, I figured it's worth a try. I guess if you win you have to go out and get your picture taken and there is a cash prize. There are about 8 different genres you can enter. Whatever, we'll see. It gave me something to do and hopefully people will enjoy seeing them. Since I had to print out pictures for that I figured I'd print out the rest of my pictures, and boy was I glad that I did. You see, I take tons of pictures and save them all to CD in respective folders, however I pick and choose pics to print and keep a file on the computer. And then every so many months I put them on a CD and take them in to be printed. Well, 315 pictures later, I had them printed. Kind of costly. I guess I waited a bit too long. But I guess considering that about 100 of them were downtown sandusky pictures, it's not too bad. Well, now they're printed and already organized in albums. I also mopped the kitchen, cleaned the entire downstair's hardwood floors, and even vacuumed and shampooed our bedroom carpet. Ahhh, much better. I made sure to stop by the BMV to transfer my tags to the new car. It seemed to take forever to get the title. I was worried there was going to be a late fee, but there wasn't. Oh, and guess what? I paid off our Disney trip! That's a good feeling. Now we have almost no money, but I'm sure it will be worth it in the end. We had the 'rents over for dinner. I made this chili cheese dog casserole. It was ok, but not the best. I guess you could say it was a learning experience. And if I were to ever make it again then the directions will be slightly different. Next week I plan to make pulled pork. Hopefully that will go better. Can't go too wrong with a crock pot. Last night we went out to the mall...surprise, surprise. I decided to get Cassidy's birthday present...her birthday is Sunday. I figured you can't go wrong at Claires. I used to love that store, actually I should say, I love that store. Me going in there is a dangerous thing. They have so many fun, cute things. Yes, things you don't really need, but it's still fun. So anyway, I got her this little bag and then tons of stuff to load it up. Makeup, pens....all that type of good stuff. I'm sure she'll like it. If she doesn't I'll just have to keep it for myself. Just kidding! Have a Happy Thursday!
