Jen dh just sold hoe dual sport. (on and off road bike) He used the money to buy another dirt bike. Dh and ds both like to ride so this works best for them.

We can see the town firework show from our house. We did not buy any fireworks last year. I might have dh go get the kids some sparklers, pop its and small stuff like that.
I bought 4 racks of ribs and a chicken yesterday. Dh will be cooking all day. I am going to make a bunch of salads. I will start those tomorrow before and after work.

Hiya? I went on an adventure today after lab. I decided to take a cab to the upper east side because it's a "holiday weekend" and traffic on the bridge home would have been terrible if I'd taken the bus. I was going to take the tram home but then I decided to stop at the bookstore first...where I bested an older man at the counter by knowing who worked around the same time as Jonas Salk to pioneer the polio vaccine (it was Albert Sabin...thank goodness for Bioethics in college). He was pretty shocked I knew the answer--- apparently the store was having a trivia contest today and he got all the answers correct during the contest so he was quizzing the cashiers ---because I was at the counter buying Pop Vinyl figures and young adult novels. Then I took the tram over the East River, to avoid bridge traffic, and walked home from there.

Jen- No idea how she forgot how to come to work. It wasn't like she was a younger tech either. She has like 20+ years at the lab. Without heels on, I'm about five foot, three inches tall. I'm shorter than I look in pictures.

Andrea- Sounds like you're going to have an awesome Fourth. We're not doing anything major here because of wedding prep...it's kind of all consuming.

My DH waited years and years for a motorcycle. He had one before we were married, but it was stolen and never replaced. Since then we've bought homes, new cars, had kids, educated kids.... the whole enchilada. He's a very happy boy to finally be riding again.

Andrea, that's awesome that you can see the town fireworks from your home! All that food sounds delicious! What type of salads are you making?

Ashley, that sounds like a fun after-work adventure! I agree...you do look taller in your pics. I was thinking 5'7". I'm 5'4".

My company is closed today. Woot!!! We slept in and today we will be cleaning our garage to make room for the motorcycle. It's not exactly a dream way to spend a day off, but it's still a day off, LOL!

Hiya? I had today off from the lab (probation folk don't work holidays...so we don't get holiday pay) so I spent the day helping get the house ready for the weeding next week. It's become like herding cats...virtually impossible. My mom and I get one thing done and 75 more things to do pop up in its place. It doesn't help that my sister and her fiancé are fighting and every time she gets mad at him, she comes over here to complain and we can't work! Now my dad has this brilliant idea to move beds (well, for my mom and I to move beds) because he's unhappy with the way we arranged his room while he was in rehab so that's another thing for us to do!

Andrea- I haven't had time for a good adventure in forever so I decided to have one yesterday. My sister didn't exactly think going to the bookstore counted as an adventure but I think it does LOL!

Jen- It's my shoes! I'm actually third shortest in my dance classes. In the lab, to reach stuff, I have to stand on my toes...I'm waiting for someone to ask why I'm so good at it.

Happy 4th!

Ashley, lol....yes, it's the shoes. It's funny how a 1 or 2 inch heel can seem to add 4 inches to a person's height. I still go up on my toes to reach things and in all my years I've only had one or two people ask about it. I totally agree that a trip to the bookstore is an adventure.

DH is a wee bit sad. His motorcycle was supposed to be delivered tomorrow, but he's having one upgrade done and that part didn't ship in time because of the holiday. The bike will now be delivered on Tuesday. We are also having a new dishwasher delivered on Tuesday. Our current one constantly malfunctions and wastes a ton of water because we have to run and rerun our dishes through it. Fines for going over our daily water allotment are steep, so we are replacing the dishwasher for about the same amount as a single-month fine would be.

Hiya? Happy Fourth of July everyone! Hope everyone had a great day! Today I helped paint the back porch, put up one of those outside canopy tents, and glued three puzzles together (which was a TON messier than I expected). We're in extreme wedding prep mode but the bride was no where to be found today. She dropped her dog off (because we really needed him here today) and went to a part in Connecticut with her fiancé. Tomorrow we have more projects to do and I have to start clearing off my computer desk because my computer is being moved into my bedroom on Tuesday.

Jen- Sorry to hear about your husband's motorcycle and your dishwasher. I'm also still waiting for someone in the lab to ask why I wear my hair in a bun every day...all the other female techs have shoulder length or shorter hair.

Did this today too...
