Twofer Tuesday - Day off edition

I am STILL trying to burn some vacation time. Yee gads. My son is on vacation this week so I took today off to spend with him. Note to self. The next time you schedule a day off with a teenager, check with him. Yep. You guessed it. He already had plans. He is stage managing the high school drama club's competition one act play. I think stage manager is a good fit for him. He is a wee bit bossy. Not sure where he gets that from. Anyway, they have rehearsal from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm today - assuming that it doesn't get cut short because of the SNOW STORM! Here in Maine, after something like 30 days of no real snow, we have 4" to 8" of snow predicted.

Since I have the day off, I took the opportunity to do a couple of errands. I went to BJ's and bought 800+ candy bars. All set for the storm! Just kiddin'. Our boy scout troop is doing a fundraiser and selling candy bars. It is easy and pretty profitable. The person who ran fundraising before me refused to sell candy bars because they have no nutritional value. However, she does allow her daughter to sell girl scout cookies. She puts up a fuss every time someone suggests a car wash because of its impact on the environment but always suggests selling bottled water. Gotta love the inconsistency. After almost 2 months and hours of work and it being rejected 3 times, my son's eagle project was finally approved on Sunday. Yeah! Now he can begin working on it for real!

Have a great day everyone!

Here's to quick posts!


  1. Congrats to your son! I can't believe it's taken so long for the approval!

  2. LOL...I loved that whole when scheduling a day off to spend time with your child you should check with them first...oh boy can I ever related!!!

    Congrats to your son on finally getting his project approved that is awesome!

  3. Is the woman who complains about the car wash the same one who persisted on having the spaghetti dinner?

  4. No. June - someone else. We have 2 people on our committee who are less than ideal to work with. The spaghetti dinner lady is power hungry and the car wash lady is, hmmm, how shall I say this, weird. :)

  5. funny thing...most "environmental-ist people" actually are quite inconsistent....

    me? I'm consistently BAD. haha
