So, here I was, sitting on my couch, minding my own business, when the house started shaking. It had already been a busy morning. We got up early and took our recycling to the recycling center. We got ourselves a big $14. Then I dropped David and Carolynn off at the movie theater to see The Dark Knight. (There went the $14.) They said it was awesome. After I dropped them off, I went to the bank to order new checks with our new address on them. I have a full box somewhere with our old address. I have no idea where. I may have sent them through the shredder. I do not write many checks. Anyway, after the bank I stopped at a Jack In The Box and got some French toast sticks for Catherine. Then we went to Kids Kuts so Catherine could get a new school hair-do. It is very cute, but I forgot to take a picture. I will try to remember tomorrow. Then we came home. I sat on my couch with my laptop and began filling out some online forms and stuff for a job opportunity. There I was, minding my own business, thinking, “Hey, I could work at a prison.” (Stop laughing! I could so work at a prison. I am a tough cookie.) Then the whole house started shaking. It did not last long. By the time I registered, “Oh damn, that is an earthquake.” it was already over. I got up to check Catherine, who was barely phased. She was in her room building a fort and watching a movie. It freaked David out. It was his first earthquake. He was in the theater at the time.
Anyway, after the house shook, and after David and Carolynn got home from the movies, I set off to run a bunch of my own errands. I went back to the bank, to the DMV, paid the rent, and signed Carolynn up for her baton class. The cooking class Catherine wanted was full, so she can find a new activity in the fall. We had tacos for dinner. Tuesday is Taco Night at Del Taco. We have not been eating out because we need to save, but we splurged this once. I got tacos for everyone for $9.00. I know I am such a big spender.
Today was my friend Heather’s birthday. Happy Birthday!!!! I would send the See’s Candy, but no job means no money. However, I will send it when I get a fabulous new job. That will happen any second now. David has an interview tomorrow. I have a test for a job on Thursday and an interview next Wednesday. (Seriously, I could work at a prison.)
