- fed and dressed myself and Bubby
- off to the chiropractor
I had every intention of heading to Target and the mall to get some freebies but Bubby somehow lost a shoe between the house and the chiropractor. Not sure what happened but when we arrived in town he had one shoe on. While laying there on the chiropractor table I decided this was someones way of telling me I should just stay in town. I really had no business running up the highway for a couple of freebies. If we left town I would have to buy him another pair of shoes and that was just crazy. So, I made due at the Dollar Store and Walmart. I got what I needed and I was ok...but I still need a Target fix.
Tomorrow I plan on sitting on the couch and watching a movie.
Bubby, of course, enjoyed feeding the chicken the most. Go figure....

We decided our first selection should be Sense and Sensibility because most of us had seen the movie and it was a small book...i.e. should be a easier read than say Anna Karenina or something.
I REALLY love this movie. I've seen all versions. I can recite most lines from the movie and I have the soundtrack from what I refer to as the Kate Winslet version. I thought I had read the book already but apparently I hadn't got all the way through it cause there was stuff at the end that I hadn't heard of.
We all enjoyed the book and declared our first read a success. Cindy has picked the second book, Walden by Henry David Thoreau....yeah...THAT Walden. I gotta tell ya...I'm on page 30 and I'm not feeling it. He REALLY needs to get to the point already! Cindy says it's about the journey not the destination but I'm a control freak and I kinda like to know where I'm going. If I get to the end of this journey and he STILL hasn't got to the point someone is going to be in trouble. It's kinda like Lost. If it's not all explained in the end I'm going to hurt someone!
Maybe that's why we are reading this...so I can learn to let go a bit and enjoy the journey. We'll see....

Basically what this comes down to is someone has been yelling at me my whole life about how I mow the yard. My dad, my grandma and now my husband. My lines are off, I drive too fast and now the big thing at our house is how low I cut the grass. The Hunter wants it cut high. I know...it's healthier for the grass and supposed to look better but we don't have a yard full of REAL grass. Oh it's all green but it's not what you would call lush subdivision grass. If you mow it high then within 4 days it looks like it needs mowed again. I don't have time to mow the grass twice a week. When I get to Grandma's age I most likely will but for right now I want it cut short and I don't want to mess with it till next week. So, last year we went round and round with how low I had the deck on the mower.
This year The Hunter fixed the issue....He put a bolt on level 4 so I can't mow any lower!! I guess I'll be mowing it as high as he wants...or finding a wrench.
