4 Nov 2003 In: Days Go By

I can’t believe it – it’s November and I’m wearing shorts. How special.

I think there’s a bump on my head

3 Nov 2003 In: Days Go By

Okay, so I was leaving Elijah’s room about a half an hour ago – he’d been sleeping in there a while and I went to cover him up as it’s gotten cooler (after an 80 degree day!!!). As I was coming out, I somehow banged my head on the door (it was only open enough for me to squeeze through – it makes noise when you open it, so I didn’t want to wake him up). I don’t know how it happened, but it was totally wierd. And for a split second, my vision went funny – I saw things as if you had a camcorder and shaking it back and forth – I guess like a cartoon. It was so wierd. And go figure, I hit my left side of my head while I already have a temple-headache on my right. Grrrr.
I am also kicking myself in the butt today… I went to the bank and asked, “what’s the difference between a money order and a cashier’s check?” She told me, “a money order is $4 and a cashier’s check is $6.” “Okay then, I’ll have the money order, hehe.” It is for the Poseidon expansion pack. So she makes me out a money order for $13.35 – which includes $5.35 shipping (I went ahead and went with priority mail since it was only $2 more expensive than media mail) – and I had to pay the $4 fee. Then I went down to the post office to get some stamps. On my way out, they asked me if they could help me and I said, “oh I was just wondering how much a money order cost here.” Guess how much… 90 cents. Grrrr.
Steve came home from a bad day at work… and he brought with him Charlie’s Angels Full Throttle and The Matrix Reloaded. Neither are really bad I guess, but neither is as good as its original either. Oh well.
I guess I should go do something productive – I mean since I didn’t get anything done today in between getting up late, running errands, making supper, and watching those silly movies…

Put on the spot

2 Nov 2003 In: Days Go By

Well today is Sunday and it has been a full day.
This morning we got up and went to church like normal. During service, I went into the tv control room to try and learn some things. I asked them for an extra headset and so I was able to listen in. During the preaching, the director turned to me and said, “do you want to do this?” I was like “oh boy – do I?” So for about ten minutes, I directed for the first time. I was SO nervous! I think I switched too much and I hope that I did okay – they said I did good, so I guess I have to believe them. There were only three cameras running though, because camera two is being fixed, so I guess this week was a pretty good one to get a start. I also accidentally hit the button for camera 5. Notice earlier I said there were only three cameras. Yeah, we got some black on there. I was like shoot! And I switched it back. The director started laughing and said, “it’s okay, I did that last week.” Hehe. So after a bit, he took it back to close up. I started doing it, though, the way my old boss used to. He would say something like, “okay going to four” then “four’s hot” when it was online. That’s what I knew and so that’s what I said. But later the director told me that in there, “hot” means there is too much light. Ooops. But then he was like, “they knew what you meant. They’ll get used to you.” So he asked me to run a camera next week, but if he doesn’t need me for camera, I am supposed to help him in the control room – doing a job of the guy who won’t be there. :-) You know, too – I got to thinking, in all my years there, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a woman running a camera… hmmm… I wonder why?
Well I just finished putting Sheila & Sarah’s school pics online. They’re at 2003schoolpics.htm.
Then after church we went out to my mom’s and ate real quick then headed to A’s ordination service. That went for a couple of hours and so by the time it was over, it was just barely too late for us to try and get to our Sunday evening class. It would not have been a big deal, but mom and G were with us and so we had to take them home and Steve had a stop he needed to make while we were out in that area. So by the time all that was done and we headed back to Festus, it would have been way too late. Plus, The Rimshot had been alone all day again.
But then we had to stop at F Walmart cause Steve had to have some workboots. So we got those, and I got Elijah a “God Made You Special” Veggie Tales book and a toy airplane that was on clearance.
Then we came home. :-)
