Turn Off the Lights and Turn Off the Shyness

Day Two - Tuesday March 20th, 2012

Good evening everyone! I was so happy to read what everyone was doing with their lives yesterday :)
I was surprised that my friend Melissa, who lives in Montana, had snow yesterday while I was enjoying the sunshine! Crazy country we live in.

Anyway... Like I said yesterday - in a comment, I think - I am way more productive when I wake up early. So, today when I got up at 8:30 it caused me to be SUPER LAZY today lol

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, Hailey has preschool 9-12:30 at her daycare. If I don't work I still take her in for school time. Today was my day off so she should have been there by 9 - It was like 9:10 when we arrived. I'm telling you - lazy.

Okay, so after I dropped her off I came home to shower and get a few bills ready for the mail. I had to have my car to this car dealership / automotive garage, Lake View Ford - which is where I bought it - to have the oil changed and a noise investigated by 10:00. Now, you're supposed to have the oil changed every 3,000 miles - I was at almost 5,000 since my last one. NOT GOOD! They looked at everything they could and said nothing was wrong and they couldn't hear anything. If I hear it again I'm supposed to drive over there immediately and let them hear it. Lucky for me it's literally 60 seconds from my house.

Because I was a few minutes late and they took their time investigating the "noise" - lol - I was waiting there for about an hour. The dealership sits right across from the lake that is in the center of my town, Conneaut Lake, so I decided to go for a little walk. I took a picture of the lake but somehow I just deleted it trying to get it from my iPhone to the laptop. Grrrrrrrrr. So, here is a picture I found on GoogleImages and edited it in Microsoft Paint!

Okay so after that I came home and crocheted a few more things for Etsy and watched Supernatural on Netflix. I've never seen this show before but my cousins told me that I would love it so I've started it from the beginning. I have 6 seasons to watch, yey!

I also got caught up on a few of my favorite YouTube channels. This guy is NicePeter. He makes great videos and some funny Epic Rap Battles of History, WHICH YOU SHOULD WATCH!

Sorry for my reflection and terrible light fixture in the pic :(

At 12:20 I left to go get Hailey. Her daycare/preschool - which I used to work at until I got my job at the hospital - is in the basement of our church. Yes, I'm sure you can tell, but I'm Catholic.

I was greeted by this little lady as soon as I walked in.

We came home and I made myself some lunch. Baby greens with grapes, apples, walnuts, and feta with raspberry vinaigrette.

Then - to add to my lazy day - took a nap. Now, when I nap, I nap hard. I slept from 2-6 today. DAY WASTED. Grrrrrr again.

When I woke up we had dinner, fish and tater tots and I made vanilla pudding with bananas and vanilla wafers. So yummy.

I watched Raising Hope with my mom and then gave Hails a tubby and put her to bed.

After that I crocheted and watched more Supernatural then decided to do this real quick lol

Also, through Allie's blog I've subscribed to this other blog - she*sCRAFTY - who started doing this photoaday thing from fat mum slim's blog.

I know March is almost over, but I started doing the photoaday today - it was "before/after".

I edited this picture on my phone with this totally awesome app - PicFrame. I love it!

I wanted to share this with you guys -- Last night after I posted I ended up downloading a bunch of new music on iTunes. Here's what I bought :

"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" by The Andrews Sisters
"It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)" by Duke Ellington
"Mr. Sandman" by The Chordettes
"In the Mood" by Glen Miller
"I Got Rhythm ("Girl Crazy" Original Cast)" by Judy Garland
"Sisters (White Christmas)" by Rosemary Clooney, Irving Berlin & Betty Clooney
"Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" by The Andrews Sisters

I was in an old fashioned mood I guess!

Well, I work day shift the next two days - Wish me luck!

Until next time,
