Last night I was extremely crabby. SO picked me up from work (very nice) but...what's that? The little need-to-fill-the-gas-tank light popping up on the dash? ARG! He seems to think he'll be able to make it until Friday without filling up his gas tank. I seriously doubt it. He drives through the worst parts of town every day, and I'd rather he not get stranded there. I don't understand why he doesn't plan ahead, particularly when he knew we were doing the no-spend challenge this week.

Then, the glass Sun Tea bottle that my mother recently gave me (something from my youth) slipped out of the fridge and it shattered on the floor into a million pieces. Did I mention that the bottle was full? Yeah, glass shards swimming in tea, all over the kitchen. I snatched up the cats and locked them in a bedroom before they could play in it (they thought it looked like fun!).

Still, no spending.

I started a new book last night in an effort to escape -

Text is The Queen's Fool and Link is
The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory - and I'm already 1/3 of the way through. I just finished her book, The Other Boleyn Girl, and it was great. Those novels just suck me in.

Another reason I'm crabby - it's August. I always get a sinking feeling in August, even though I don't have to go back to school anymore. I guess it's the knowledge that SNOW will be here any minute. Wink Yeah, it's 100 degrees now, but I still get a little nauseous when August rolls around...summer goes by way too fast here.

    And you can always count on cats to find the worst possible times and things to get into. I have six of them, and you should see some of the messes they manage to make. Sometimes I think they are as bad as, or worse than my two boys.

    It's over 100 degrees here in MO, and it's only the first day of August. Ick!!
    Last year, summer dragged all the way into mid October, and winter, although we had a number of bitterly cold days, very little snow. Don't know what this year will bring. I just want this horrible summer heat to be OVER!!

    Here's hopeing things will be going better for you soon.
