Saturday's Stupid Saying

I sat cringing before MGM's Technicolor production...which displays no trace of imagination, good taste, or ingenuity...I say it's a stinkeroo.

I think history has proven him otherwise...

Thunderstorms and a tornado warning rolled through here yesterday afternoon. Fortunately, the only tornado spotted was two hours west of here, and we didn't even get any hail. Just two inches of rain in about an hour. The roof leaked during the hard rain, but only filled one-fourth of the bucket.

The good news is, the next week is going to be awesome! Highs in the 80's, which means fantastic weather not only for my son's graduation on Friday, but his class trip to Holiday World on Thursday (there's a new water coaster called the Wildebeast), the party on Saturday, and the Indy 500 on Sunday. Time to break out the shorts again!

Goals for Today:
-Finish the living room
-Wipe down the woodwork in office
-De-clutter the damn shelves!

Next week is 'crunch week'. I'll have to do the kitchen, bathroom, and hallway. See....if I hadn't procrastinated, it would have been 'maintenance week'...Baaaaad Molly.
