Another day in paradise

So after a few hours today I finally went out to help with the hedgerow aka pollinator project. When I went out there I was hoping they were planting. No such luck. They were measuring, and marking and digging and raking. Look what I ended up doing...

Hmmm don't remember that being on my "job description". I'm only smiling because I'm wearing my favorite scrapbooking shirt. I was scrapbooking this picture in my mind haha.

Have you ever seen such a giant tumbleweed? I've seen them that big only on the freeway when I thought for sure I was going to die if I ran it over. and then it got stuck. under my car. that was embarrassing!

Anyhow. I forked some tumbleweeds into a horse trailer until that was full (still had plenty of tumbleweeds). Then carried a tape measure around to mark spots. Then hey, what's this? It's time for lunch!

After lunch I hid for a bit and then eventually someone sent me a text that "hey, we are REALLY planting plants now!" So I dragged my butt outside and planted about 10 and it was HOT. So I was really sad that it was almost time to go home.

That's not me, it's a co-worker.

I went home and immediately went to work outside, because HELLO I'm having a party on Saturday (please God don't let it rain!). I worked outside until it was time to get Trevor ready for football and my head was just pounding. Got him ready, took him to football and dropped him off and Melissa and I went to go get some stuff for the party. We went to the dollar store when my body decided that I REALLY needed to go to the bathroom. I asked the cashier if I could use the restroom and she had to call out the manager to ask. The manager tells me that it's only for emergencies and I was like HELLO emergency 911, stop talking to me about it and let me use it or I have to leave like PRONTO. Seriously, I doubt I'd be asking to use the bathroom in the dollar store if it wasn't an emergency. (and really isn't anytime you have to go an emergency?) Thank God they let me use it, not sure if I would have made it to the Jack In The Box across the parking lot. TMI I know but that's what happens to me when I get overheated. Sucks.

It makes me wonder too, WHY do stores not have public restrooms anymore? I know why really, people steal, people vandalize. But people DO have to go to the bathroom and if you can't go in the middle of your shopping trip what are you supposed to do? Any mom with a potty training toddler has been faced with this delimma too. It's just not right in my opinion. If you want people to shop in your store you should allow them to use the restroom.

::off my soapbox::

So after we got done shopping we headed to Costco to order Scott a cake. I had visions of making cute cupcakes, but I have to be realistic. I'm not going to have time to make cupcakes. I still need to clean my ceiling fan blades not to mention take the pumice stone to the inside of the toilet (I know you are SO jealous and want to do those jobs for me). Melissa and I had a slice of pizza in the food area while I tried desperately to remember my password to Facebook on my cellphone. Damn kids always logging me out. After about the 100th time I got it and wrote it down lol.

Then we went to Wal Mart, which I hate but I wanted to get some white Christmas lights and I thought for sure they'd have some since they have Christmas stuff out already. The only ones they had were solar ones for $25 a box. Not quite sure how those would work. What if it was overcast all day? Not paying $25 a box anyways. Someone told me they have them at Target so I'll go by there tomorrow. (I want to put them in the trees on the side of the house for the party). They also didn't have any Chinet paper plates. What's up with that? I don't want to buy styrofoam plates or ones with flowers on them. Guess I'll hit up Target for those too!

While I was there I picked up some generic Excedrin. Twenty minutes later my headache was pretty much gone. That stuff rocks!! Keeping it in the car or my purse or something for when that happens to me again. Now I just have a slight shadow of a headache, nothing painful just a little cloudy if that makes sense.

I just got done making invites for Melissa's halloween party. My Mom is letting her have one at her house. Haha that should be fun! I'm going to the wine stroll while she entertains my kid and her friends :)

Isn't it awesome!?!

That tumbleweed looks like a freaky photoshop picture! I have a little potty chair in my trunk... not that I would let you use it. Well, maybe if it was an emergency. Maybe. ;)
