I took last Friday off work because I needed a little break from the everyday stress of that place! They managed to survive without me so that's a good thing!
Anyway, in the morning I had a appointment for a DXA scan to test for bone density. The girl who did the scan used to work with my daughter. I was surpised to learn she knew her and she was suprised that I was her mother! Must be cuz I'm so young looking!
Then I went to a few garage sales. At one I found this cute little table-top fountain
It was marked $3 and I asked the guy if it worked. He didn't know and sold it to me for $1 just in case. When I got home and put batteries in it, indeed it did not work. I cleaned it up and figured for a dollar it would look cute sitting on my table anyway. However, my husband couldn't resist tinkering with it and got it working. So not only does the water flow, but it plays music too!
I was kind of looking for one of those outdoor fire pits. I saw one last year at a garage sale and passed it up, now I'm kicking myself! Of course, I could just go buy a new one but I'd rather search for a bargain!
The rest of the weekend went by pretty uneventful.
I am trying to get my work schedule changed to 4 days. One of the other girls wants to pick up more hours in the fall and I can afford to let her have one of my days. It would be so awesome to have a three-day weekend EVERY weekend!
Now if we can just get the powers-that-be to agree!
