Middle of quite a week

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is cool in the air conditioning. You KNOW how much I love hot weather!!!! I am still wanting to throw on a sleeve before I go out, but nooooo, it's summer! At least my apartment is cool, and I hope I haven't jinxed it by saying that!
I went to dance class the other night. I wish they would play some rock and roll. I would be much more inclined to dance! As I was leaving, a woman was leaving, too, and we commented on the dark cloud above us and I said goodbye and headed across the street to my car and I heard her scream and she was on the ground. She kept saying it's broken, it's broken and I looked and he foot was aiming the wrong way. I ran in and told someone to call 911 and everybody came running out and I left. That is what happens when you line dance to just country music!!!!!!! I am not even talking about heavy rock and roll, the oldies would be good. I know she has "It's my Party" on it because she was looking for something else. And the music she plays is really good. I just would rather have some rock mixed in. Have I talked about this topic enough???
I am going to eat lunch with Norma and Susan today. When they called that's what I hoped they were calling about. It's been a couple of weeks since I ate at Diamond Jacks and I miss it!!
Well, I had an embarassing thing happen to me yesterday. My toilet backed up! I had to call the maintenance man which is new for me. He fixed it quickly, thank goodness. But that is weird, having someone else do something, instead of David doing it!
Well that's all for now. Stay cool!

Howdy everybody!

I got my "summer cut" this morning and I feel so liberated! No hair to worry with, essentially. I could do what Christopher does and just shave my head, but I think that would be a last resort. I LOVE and ADORE my new apartment. It is so pretty with all of the pictures on the walls and new stove and fridge. I love the color of everything, and it just makes me serene. I have a nice neighbor, who has already helped me out by carrying my bad microwave back to Walmart and then helping me with the new one. We have a mandatory apartment meeting next week so I will get to meet everyone. They need to go over some of the rules in person, which will be good. I am glad that it is not next Friday because my nephew, Scott, graduates and unless it is raining, I plan to be there! I need to start my chocolate business. Y'all don't know how tempting it is knowing that there are truffle brownies in a box in the closet! I want to cook 'em, NOW!! If anyone wants a chocolate tasting party, I'm the one who can hook you up!!Okay, that's all for now. I am using my new computer, which I love. It is a laptop and I make lots of mistakes because the keyboard is a little different than my other one. I have never hit the backspace this many times!! Later, everybody/1

Another day

I have so much to do today. What I really want to do is crawl back into the bed! But then the stuff wouldn't get done! What a conundrum! Yesterday I had company and they loved the apartment and what I did with everything. One was my counselor, Jeanine, and the other was the one in charge of the apartment. She is "Miss Wisconsin Cove"! It made me feel good that they liked it so much.
I have made the horrible mistake of putting a tv in my bedroom. AND I found out that Star Trek, the next generation, comes on FOX at ten o'clock! Of course I have watched two nights of it and they were episodes I do not remember seeing the first go round with the show. I love just cuddling under the covers and then just flipping the tv off when the show is over. Ah......
Well, I must go get ready to do my errands. Talk to y'all soon!

Apartment living

It's been a little over a week since I have moved to this apartment. So far, so good. But the maintenance man bangs on the door and scares me half to death. Yesterday, he broke one of my old frog statues just because he didn't watch where he was going. He says he owes me a kermit now! I thought they looked cute out there but now one is headless! And we have a mandatory meeting next week to go over living here. I bought a microwave that didn't work so I asked one of my new neighbors if he would go to Walmart with me to exchange it and he kindly did! I got the last microwave like mine and so far, so good. I filled the apartment with smoke the other night and it was that electric smell all over the place. My smoke alarm didn't go off, which really surprised me. I can't seem to start a new paragraph so here is another one. Happy birthday to several people. May is a popular month for birthdays, apparently. Okay, I am going now. I need dishtowels and they aren't bringing them to me from the store! Have a great day!!

Well, I have moved into an apartment. I LOVE IT!! And I have a new computer, a laptop, that is taking me some getting used to. Also, doing my clothes in a laundry room. I don't know when the clothes are done. Well, this computer is telling me that my battery is low so that is all for now until I find out what to do.
