Sunday, June 6...



Ok... yesterday was nutz...
We had a second garage sale... the whole freaking street did... the number of cars was crazy ...but we did get rid of a lot more crap... (I have a real love/hate relationship with garage sales).
The afternoon turned into chore city with a few errands...like a trip to Home Depot ... to buy a pipe wrench...
Why did I need a pipe wrench... um... remember that water leak thing I fixed a while ago... seems I didn't use enough teflon tape and it was dripping... and fuck if I could get the bolts to budge to take it apart and get on with a "do over".  Pipe wrench ... solved all that. :D

wearing
~ pj pants
~ strong bad shirt
~ a smile...
planning
~ shower...
~ ok clothes n' stuff
~ sewing some rip stop nylon and trying to get a panel done on the kite...
~ putting insulation in the wall in the basement and gluing the super-six.
wishing
~ that my dear friend pageeater manages to tame that editing beast within...
~ and just wanting to send some good vibes to a friend andysocial... just because...
~ I didn't have this headache... no idea what from unless it was from just doing too damn much yesterday. !!
~ and wishing I had more time to review journals ... but that shower is scream'en for me. :D


Ok... and more about yesterday...
We went to my parents house for a bbq with a big family get together thing... my units best friends when I was growing up were my aunt and uncle ... you know how that goes... and they had five kids... the oldest a boy and the rest... the "girls".  I grew up playing with them all the time... The ages range around and I played with Heather the most... and the two of us played with little baby Margo... the last baby in that family.  Well they've all grown up and live in a place called Gabriola Island off the west coast of Canada... (beeeeeeautiful place).
So they were there last night at the dinner... visiting Ottawa with their babies... and I'm talking ... loads of babies... I commented at one point that if I were a woman my ovaries would be bursting out of my gut... Baby Ezra, Baby Kendra, Toddler Jaqueline, Toddler Rioma, Toddler Jude, Young'en Mackenzie and her brother... (another young'en) Mathew... ('cept I called them Mac n' Cheese ... now he (mathew) hates me... hahaha).
Oh my god I was in heaven.

That's kendra... she's a doll... :D :D :D

Well we wrapped that up at 7:00 and I Z, the boys and I all zooooomed out the the AMC because I had bought 7:30 showing tickets to Prisoner Of Azkaban ... !!! boy we had fun...
The - of course - had to drop a lot out of the story and mess with it a bit to make it work but it did work... and it was dark and it was fun and ... I really dug it.  I was sad to see that Christmas didn't make the screenplay version... Christmas at Hogwarts is an interesting part of the book.... but they really did nail a lot of stuff that I was hoping would be groovy. :D  Edward was clutching my hand like a vice grip for a while there towards the end... but he knows the story. !

Anyways... home from the movies... and put kiddies to bed... then make coffee... sit down and voila!!! the hockey game is still on... it's the middle of the first OT period... Coolio!! So I kick back to watch that... and ... and ... and... blink blink blink... it's 1:30 AM.  Yup... I missed the end of the game and managed to kink my neck sleeping on the sofa. :D

Have a great sunday muchachos y muchachas... :D
