Sunday, Sunday

So...Last night we went out with the people from my office (okay, I only work with three other people!) to a local beer garden. Got to meet the boss's new girlfriend.
 Side note, what is a better term for that? The man is not a teenager, and while the lady is younger than he is, she's not a teenager either.

 Anyway, she's fun, sassy, and charming, pretty and open. I hope they make each other happy for a long time. Me, I had a beer. First one I've had ina LOOONG time. And the most incrediable rueben sliders. WOW.

 This morning its cheerios with Almond milk. What a let down.

 Older two have major projects due Monday/Tuesday. Youngest one spent all day at an amusement park/band competition. It's been a busy weekend.

I'm done with my online classes for a few weeks, and hoping the next one isn't as hard to get through as the youth one. It's not that the youth one was hard, really, it was just not that interesting to me. So it felt like dragging myself through six inches of mud.

 It is a beautiful day outside, windy, warm but not hot, and clear as a bell. Makes me wish we had an outside table!! We do have a really neat deck, but not a table out there yet. I have several cherry tomatoes starting and a few Roma ones have begun as well. Something is eating the zucchini plant - or is it the cuke plant? and the Lettuce is doing really well. Now, if I could get rid of the Grackles, that would be good, but I got to see a young cardinal hoping around my deck this morning. Very cute. We also have some chickadees, tufted timouse, and red headed woodpeckers that favor us with their company. And more Robins than I've ever seen. The dogs are still chasing the squirrels and chipmunks like they are Satan incarnate. It is both funny and annoying at the same time - because they are really LOUD (the dogs, not the critters!) Have a great week!

I hear you on "girlfriend." It's the wrong word--but WHAT to use? "Companion" sounds old, "partner" sounds gay and "special friend" sounds coy.

It is so hard to get through a class you don't like. Slogging is the right word, for sure.

I know someone who says "ladyfriend," but I'm not sold on that either.

How about sweetheart or sweetie?
