Hiya BetterMost friends.



Hope everyone is enjoying your weekend!



On Friday, I left work, drove past the mall, and went to FYE (For Your Entertainment - music/movie store) by my apartment, and found it's where FYE "used" to be. Found another FYE at the mall I passed on the way home (facepalm).  I drove back that way and went to that mall, and found out that this FYE has no new music. (facepalm). On the way out, on a whim, I stopped in at Barnes & Noble bookstore, to their music section. SCORE!!! I now own the CD and VINYL versions of "Madame X" by Madonna!

Only down side was they didn't have the deluxe version, but they ordered it for me, and it will be shipped on 6/21.





The family got together yesterday for Father's Day, because my brother and niece do a charity motorcycle ride on Father's Day, so they won't be around.  They are taking part in the 24th Annual Kelsey Charity Run.  An AMA sanctioned charity motorcycle run, it takes place every year on Father's Day, rain or shine! All proceeds go to help kids with Cancer & other debilitating diseases.  Donation $20 per Person.  After the ride, there are events and a BBQ.

We went to Maggiano's Little Italy for a late lunch/early dinner.  I had a dish called "Tuscan Shrimp and Chicken".   It was ziti in a red pepper cream sauce, with grilled shrimp, grilled chicken and cheese.

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Yum!

I love how even when your family goes out for a meal, it's Italian.

However, I highly recommend "Rocketman".  It's very energetic, not entirely linear, has big dance numbers and even fantasy sequences.  The lyrics move the story along.  Toran Egerton is amazing as Elton.  Jamie Bell (all grown-up Billy Elliot!) is wonderful as Bernie Taupin--lyricist of "A Love that Will Never Grow Old". 

Brokie connection!
Really enjoyed "Rocketman" especially Toran Egerton and Jamie Bell! Want to see it again! Side anecdote, might be TMI: "Rocketman" was playing on the radio when my first child was conceived.
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

Hiya BetterMost friends.



Hope everyone is doing well!

had a busy Saturday last weekend!

Trenton graduated pre-school, and it was his ceremony day.  Afterwards, he got to pick where we went to eat, and he wanted IHOP.

Somebody's rocket went off for sure, then.

Was there an exclamation of "Gun's goin' off"?

Hiya BetterMost friends.




Whew!  It has gotten hot here!   We hit 90 degrees today!  Summer has officially arrived.

This arrived late, but better late than never!   I'm ready for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.





I've also ordered a set of rainbow lights.  If they get here by Friday, I'll put them  up.  Otherwise, save 'em for next year.

Hiya BetterMost friends.




I hope that everyone is doing well!

I had my mid-year review the other day, and it went well.  My supervisor is pleased with my performance on the job, and likes my attitude!  How about that?!  :laugh:

Been on a clean-streak lately, putting things away as I use them, and keeping everything in its place,  so the apartment has been clean for a while now.  I also went to "The Container Store" and got a bunch of shoe-box sized containers.   I always keep my flags and lights for the windows in my coffee table where the lid lifts up, but they were all just tossed in there.  Now, each holiday has its own container, and everything in there is nice and neat.

;D

I also went through my two end tables which have the same feature, and realized the stuff I put in there I wasn't using, everything had been shut in there for over a year and not used, so I got rid of it all.

;D

It's July 9th, and I saw my first Christmas commercial on TV.  ::)  Apparently, Balsam Hill (the artificial tree company) is having a "Christmas in July" sale.

Hard to imagine s/he'd say otherwise! You sound very conscientious about both. Maybe, "You should have brought more stromboli to the last office party because it was so delicious everybody finished it before I could get my third piece."

Hiya BetterMost friends.




We're about to enter another weekend!

;D

Things have been going well on my end!  Work has been keeping me busy, but that's a good thing.

I have about a month to go before I get my vacation, which I'm looking forward to, even if I have no real plans.   :laugh:

I am looking to get a car cover for the Santa Fe.  My parking lot has a tree that overhangs it, and the car is covered in dirt and sap daily.  Not liking it at all!
