This and That. Again.

Let's see.

Went to a jewelry party tonight. Spent $49 on a pair of earrings and a necklace. I realize they don't go together but separately they'll work with other pieces I own.

I also used the JoAnn's gift certificate I had gotten for my birthday. I bought some metal glue, some embossing powder, a black staz-on ink pad, and some ribbon. All for scrapbooking, of course.

My hubby is leaving on Sunday for a week long fishing trip in Canada. I think he'd be happier about it if he wouldn't have broken his favorite fishing pole last night. He's off to buy a replacement today but you know how it is. You can never quite replace the old tried-n-true with any real satisfaction.

The boys are staying with their grandparents for three nights next week. I imagine the house will seem very empty with them and their daddy gone. Don't worry about me, though. I'll have the dog and cat for company.

My great-grandmother, who is in her nineties, has been hospitalized because of a heart attack. They found some blockage and wanted to do surgery but she declined. They're going to make her as comfortable as possible and then send her home. She told my mom, "I'm ready to die, I just don't want to be in pain." I get teary-eyed thinking about it.

My brother is replacing the roof on his house this weekend so that's on the evening agenda. Only, it's not just his roof but the trusses, too. Big job. Messy job. Not a very fun job. I'm glad I'll just be watching. LOL

And that pretty much brings you up-to-date on my not so entertaining life.
