Mothers Day was not a Lazy Sunday

Hello All,

Please don't misinterpret the title of this post. I simply meant that I did not do my lazy act today. Most Sundays I do two things, laundry and grocery shopping. Some people may be thinking that grocery shopping is a tedious act of nonlaziness. I, however, do not feel that it is. The act of grocery shopping is pretty straight forward, and not at all complicated. Okay, maybe the first time you venture out on your own, with your own money, and didn't think to make a list of needed supplies, it is, but after a year or two of weekly practice, it becomes second nature. Or maybe that's just me. Anyway, today I started by getting one load of laundry into the dryer, and then on a bit of a whim (with a little nudge from my sister, Booger Brain), I checked my car tires air pressure, went to Walgreens to get a picture off of my memory card, and into print form, and then headed north towards Oshkosh, to surprise my mom for mothers' day! The drive north was kind of annoying, but the look on my Mom's face when I walked into my sister's apartment was well worth it! I love you Mom! We all (my mom, dad, and sister) sat down to a great pot of fondue, courtesy of my sister, and had a great time! It was the first time that we had all gathered at my sister's apartment, at the same time, and it was cool. Around 6, I departed, and started heading back south. More construction along the way, and a rare use of 94 through Milwaukee followed, and eventually I made it back home. Now, I'm doing one last load of laundry, and it dawned on me that I forgot to stop and get some juice for tomorrow morning (like I had planned on, all day), oops. Oh well, I'll just add it to the list for post-work shopping tomorrow.

If you've been wondering if tonight's posting was written by somebody sitting in a basement, blogging about what they see around them, you'd be more or less correct. Except for the things around me part. But hey, what can I say, this was an unplanned blog posting, and I didn't think it out before I started it, so there! Okay, in other news, I'd been waiting nearly five and a half months to be able to use my Ipod Touch in my car, and now I finally can! It's gonna take me a while to get used to not being able to control it through my car stereo, but I think I'll manage. Also, while I had my stereo pulled out, to change the cable for the Ipod, I discovered why my radio reception had been so crappy for so long. It turns out that the reception amplifier wasn't installed, so I took care of that too, and now my radio, in all of it's HD glory, works again!!! So now my music needs are back up to par in my car!!! This makes me a happy(ier) guy. In other, other news, I got a pretty big compliment early last week, while filling in for one of my drivers at work, while he was on vacation. It came from a customer that wasn't ever a part of my old route, which made it even better. I'm not going to go into what it was here, because it would take too long to set up, but I will say that it totally made my day, that day. In even more other news, I've got nothin'. So I guess this is a good place to put an end to tonight's installation.

I hope you're all doing well, and that your week goes well! Don't forget to laugh, and indulge in some good eats at some point, and get some good tunes in while you're at it! Until next time, peace out y'all!

It was pretty awesome that you were able to make it. I know it made Mom's day, and your help with the veggies was very, well, helpful.

Love you!
