A good day.

Today has been pretty good! I was talking to [livejournal.com profile] lai_lore last night about getting a coupon for a new book I wanted, and lo, and behold! There was a coupon for Borders in my email this morning. I bought the newest Fablehaven book, and read the first chapter.

Then I went to the comic book store and found that they had saved me all but one of the Free Comic Day comic books, which is awesome!

Then I found some hair product I thought I had lost, along with a dollar in my bedroom! I went grocery shopping, then went to Goodwill where I found a ginormous bag of Lego bricks and mini figs for $7, which is a steal, considering everything that was in it! There was even a Lego pirate with a peg leg, hook hand and a parrot! Did I mention the Lego monkey? There was one! And a Lego alligator! I played Legos with my kids for about an hour after school. Also at Goodwill, I found a big Unicron action figure for Robert, since his broke a long time ago, and he's been lamenting that fact since.

Then, after Lego playing, I took the kids to the discount theater and we saw The Spiderwick Chronicles. Then I folded five loads of laundry and put another in the dryer, and another in the washer. Only several more to go!

Tomorrow, Jared is in a play, which I have to miss to attend my sister's graduation from ASU - she earned her Masters in Social Work in just a year, and was offered a job with the Hospice she interned at for a very good salary. I am very proud of her! We will have dinner afterward to celebrate.

Friday, I have Art Masterpiece with the kids...possibly the last one of the year. That evening, I am hosting a Stampin' Up! party at the school, because my house is to small for it. I need to buy snacks for that, and remember to pick up the demonstrator--she's blind, so she can't get there on her own. I will have to remember to clean out the back seat for her dog.

Saturday, I need to go to [livejournal.com profile] lai_lore's apartment to help dismantle a bad and take it to Goodwill to donate, since it's taking up too much room. I also need to go to my niece's track meet on Saturday, since she made the State team. I am not sure which even she is participating it...hammer throw or shot put, but our family is going to go and cheer for her.

Sunday is Mother's Day, and so I am going to drive up to Strawberry with my sister and a niece or two, to visit my parent's graves and probably have a picnic while we're up in the mountains. It is a beautiful place, and a nice time of year to be there.

Anyway, that is the rest of my week in a nutshell. I needed to get it written down so I don't forget anything. But for now, I need to go and cook dinner and stuff.

Hope everyone is doing well! Check out my previous journal entry for some free music downloads. The links will still be good for another four or five days, I think. Enjoy!

Mom: A clown getting hit by a truck!
**kids laugh**
Robert: It's funnier than a clown doing anything else!
Mom: I love you, Robert!

With Halloween upon us, it is worthwhile to remember a few simple rules
to help keep this season healthy, happy and SAFE!!

Please use these helpful hints this and every year.

1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see
if it is really dead.

2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.

4. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which
they should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of
grief in the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to
kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to kids who speak with
somebody else's voice.

5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone.

6. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.

7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would
apply to any other house of the dead as well.

8. If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find
out that it's just the cat, GET THE HELL OUT!

9. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short
circuits; just GET OUT.

10. Do not take ANYTHING from the dead.

11. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good
reason for it. Don't stop and look around.

12. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you
know what you're doing.

13. Dress appropriately. When investigating a noise downstairs in an old
house, women should not wear a flimsy negligee. And carry a flashlight,
not a candle.

14. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic
behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes,
increasing hairiness, and so on, kill them immediately.

15. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at
least twice, more if you are female. Also note that, despite the fact
that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's
still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

16. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are
listed here: Amityville, Elm Street , Transylvania, Nilbog (you're in
trouble if you recognize this one), anywhere in Texas where chainsaws
are sold, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine .

17. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to
the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If you think that
it is strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a
tank, shoot yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and

most likely be eaten.

18. Beware of strangers bearing tools. For example: chainsaws, staple
guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawnmowers,
butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any devices made from
deceased companions.

19. If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the
time to move in with the in- laws. This also applies to houses that had
previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some
horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices.

20. Do not mention the names of demons around open flames, as these can
flare suddenly. Be especially careful of fireplaces in this regard.

21. Do not go looking for witches in the Maryland countryside.

Is it me, or does this story read like a sixth grader wrote it? Cool fish, though. I love how they euthanized fish because they had tattoos, and it was inhumane to tattoo fish. THAT makes sense, doesn't it?

Your home is a

Magic Magnate's Castle

Your kitchen is manned by a team of Keebler Drow Elves. There's a Chocolatessin, a word you made up yourself, but that is beginning to catch on among your wealthy neighbors. Your master bedroom is decorated to look like the treetop village of the Galadhrim. Your study has every fantasy novel ever written, including multiple editions of the Silmarillion and advance copies of Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition. One of your garages holds your collection of ferraris, and is measured in acreage.

Your home also includes a roost for griffins. You've never actually seen a griffin, but you keep the roost ready anyway. Your guests enjoy your home theater with hi-def plasma screen TV, and the thrones you watch it from. Outside is the moat that protects your home from goblin invaders and extended family.

And, you have a pet -- a unicorn named "Shadowhooves".

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:

My husband made the mistake of giving my children a ten dollar bill to chase down the the ice cream man.

After the ice cream was eaten they still have EIGHT giant Pixie Stix tubes. They bragged that they still had a dollar left, but then I found out it was because the guy ran out of Pixie Stix and couldn't give them more.

Oy. Change? What's that?

It looks like they have changed quite a bit, but I still want to see it!
