Lonely :( and Another Deposit

August 23rd, 2011 at 09:01 am

It's 11:00 AM and I'm waiting for the bus to bring me my kindergartner home for lunch. Oh, wait ... I don't have a kindergartner anymore. I have to wait until 2:30 for all the kids to come home.

Clearly, I'm not used to large blocks of time to myself - for the first time in about 13-1/2 years.

I've watched on the History Channel about the attempt on Hilter's life during WW2, and then was there any truth to the idea that he survived and went to Argentina. And I'm busying myself in the kitchen making: meatloaf muffins, chicken tenders, Manwich fixings, brownie bite cupcakes, waffles for breakfast, making sandwiches for tomorrow's lunches and juicing carrots for DH's breakfast.

Woe is me ... time to resurrect some good books and hobbies. Any fiction recommendations out there that anyone can make?

On the money front: I received the additional compensation for the secondary claim from the botched tarp job on the rental property. $997 which I will deposit into the EF account. I believe that DH will be able to repair the damage for about $300. I also submitted a signed contract for the garage roof repair to my insurance agent and should be compensated the $1,600 depreciation shortly.

    It is always a hard transition for me each school year....and I have a 6th & 9th grader. I clean, work out at the gym, sew, and spend too much time on the internet(!) And there is the occassional breakfast or lunch with friends. Good luck figuring out how to fill your free time.

    Lots of people are reading 'The Help', and I actually enjoyed it.

    I am so jealous of all your free time! Big Grin I really enjoyed the Game of Thrones, but there are some gory/grisly parts. Just to warn you.

    I love the mysteries written by Elizabeth George, also those of Ruth Rendell.

    I just recently read a series of books which I thought were really really funny. Smile Mis-Match, Match Point and Rematch by Erynn Mangum. One was a free Kindle book, one was $1.49 Kindle and one was maybe $6?? I loved the free one so much I went ahead and splurged on the other two. Big Grin
