So far we have collected with our Coke Reward points: 3 pairs of Coke flip flops, a weekend at the Asilomar in Monterey, a key chain and movie tickets. All this proves is we drink way way way too much Coke. ;> Although in fairness to us we did have a Coke machine in the backyard that all our friends and family enjoyed.

On a main street in our little town there is an overpass that has these blue lights on both sides. There is no explanation for them. Why they exist is a mystery but every time I pass them at night for some odd and strange reason I think of Fantasmic and want to break out in a little Mickey Sorcerer dance.

While my cousins (Lisa's Godparents) visited between Christmas and New Years a conversation lead me to tell about the results of some eggs I had boiled. I boiled the eggs sort of, well okay, forgot about them long enough for all the water to evaporate and they exploded. Burnt pot and egg bits covering a good part of the kitchen was the outcome. I'm never sure just how long to let them go and my timing was a bit off that day. My cousin told me she uses an egg boiler in the microwave and they are always perfect. Today this gift from them was a surprise in the mail. Wish me luck!

Mom bought sunii a new toy today. sunii only has about 15 toys now. And like most all kids growing up her favorites are not the catnip filled mice, the light up ball or the stick with the dangle stuff on the end. Nope, it's the cardboard box with holes in it, the wadded up plastic bag. You know aka the pots, pans & tupperware for toddlers. She thinks sunii is not as active as my other cats were; Nicia who only moved to stalk someone coming up or down her stairs, scare Simba or hang from Sammy's jowls. Ozzie who only liked to prowl at night otherwise he was a 14lb lap dog. Or Pita who would climb on your back while you were down on your knees gardening, painting wallboards or just about anything else, curl up and go to sleep. ;>

On my way to my doctor appointment today put the garbage in the back of Lisa's truck, so we could dump it and it was pretty ripe smelling. As we drove up to the garbage dump "gazebo" one of the maintenance guys was freshing up the look of the area with grey paint. That's nice but this prevented us from ridding the truck of the bag. Time concerns prevented us from going back to the apartment. It took us 45 minutes to get to my destination and about an hour before I was done. Mind you, Lisa is waiting in the vehicle with windows down, in 87% weather and humid. Then we decided since we were in the area where an Olive Garden was, dinner seemed to be a good idea. After Olive Garden we made a stop at the Hobby Lobby store, close by, followed by a stop for fuel. Now 4 hours later, what can I say, the bag is reeking and probably pulsating. We pull into our complex and can't believe Lisa was heading for the gate instead of the "gazebo"! Think her olfactory sense was beyond damaged. Garbage was dumped but don't know how long that aroma will be in the interior of truck.

Received a package from my baby sister Roberta today, no reason. This is a sweatshirt from my hometown high school. As a freshman because Hayward had only one high school we had to be bussed to Arroyo High in San Lorenzo. As a sophomore they built Tennyson, Hayward's second high school and we only lived about 5 blocks from it. As a junior I moved in with my grandparents and finally was able to attend the most beautiful high school, old Hayward High. It sat on a knoll and the buildings were beautiful, painted white and with lonic columns. It opened in 1893 and closed in 1962 when it was leveled for the Plaza Center Tower to be built. Go Farmers!

Totally made a really crappy day GREAT when I came home and opened my mail. Thank you notes from the students of the class I sponsored. I was able to provide these kids colored markers and journals so they could express themselves by drawing and writing. This is a wonderful organization. I'm so happy for these kids. Please go to DonorsChoose.org and help our teachers out!
