Memorial Day Weekend

What have you been up to this week?

I got a laptop for Mothers Day because we thought my old laptop was causing a printer problem.
It didn't work.
Laptop was returned.
Back to square 1 with the printer problem.
Our community had a yard sale last weekend.
It didn't go as well as I thought, but I am $76.00 richer and the garage is cleaner.
My husband's birthday falls on Memorial Day weekend.
A picnic is planned at his brothers house.
The forecast calls for rain.
Zachary is graduating in a few weeks.
Where did the time go?
The air-conditioner broke in my car - AGAIN!
Not good timing since we have had an abnormal heat wave.
The heat makes me cranky!
School is almost over.
My summer work schedule is lighter.
I l.o.v.e. summer!
Which sounds crazy since the heat makes me cranky.
Have you ever had a pen pal?
You know, the kind where you actually write a letter instead of email?
I did as a teenager. A girl from Japan.
I wonder whatever happened to her?
Now I have a new pen pal from Australia.
We met thru blogging but we both thought it would be fun to go back to pen and paper!
Have a wonderful three day weekend!

  1. Printer problems are never fun - but why did you have to return your Mother's Day gift? ;)

    $76 richer is better than nothing, right? Especially since your garage is a little cleaner. ;)

    Happy Birthday to your hubby - here's hoping the rain holds off for the picnic... *fingers crossed*

    I'm with you - heat makes me CRANKY. I love the lazy days of summer, but it would be so much nicer without heat and humidity. ;) Hope your car A/C gets fixed soon!

    I haven't had a pen pal since middle school - how cool you have a new one now! :)

    Love that e-card! Mmmmmm, Adam Levine is divine! ;) Have a great weekend!

  2. Liebe Tami, ich wünsche Dir auch ein schöne Wochenende! Ihr habt es gut mit Eurer Hitze, bei uns gibt es Gegenden, da hat es letzte Nacht geschneit und das im Mai!!! Bin übrigens wieder gesund, danke!
    Lieben Gruß

  3. A Pen pal... that's so cool!!! So 'old school' :)
    I'd cry if my heat broke... seriously just cry
    Sometimes you wonder if its worth having a yard sale... I convince my husband to just take the tax write off & donate everything.
    Fingers crossed the rain stays away!
    & yes - Adam Levine... yes...

  4. I just remembered that I had a dream last night that I had a last minute garage sale.
    I live out in the middle of NOWHERE. Nobody but mosquitos would come. lol
    I did a blog pen pal thing a couple of years ago where I matched bloggers up with pen pals. It was fun, I wonder if anyone still participates....

  5. Funny card. Hope you keep your cool in the heat.

  6. Happy birthday to your DH, hope it is a nice weekend for your family.

    Looks like you had a couple of frustrating hiccups this week with the printer and car, hope they are getting sorted.
    Yes I had two pen pals in my school days that I particularly remember, from Canada, and one visited here in Australia when she was in her 20s, and I heard from her again last year.

  7. Happy Birthday Todd! Congrats school is almost over it was such a fast year. Love the Adam awesome! Have a great weekend !

  8. Have a great weekend, rain or no rain.

  9. I've never had a pen pal, but I love real handwritten letters. I still write letters on occasion. I treasure some of the letters written to me through the years, and wonder if this generation will have anything like that as a keepsake. Hope your weekend was fun and not a complete wash. Happy birthday to your hubs!
