I was fairly busy this weekend.  I had so much stuff that I wanted to do.

Saturday:  farmers' market, breakfast at the bake shop, made soup, went to see The Help, church and lunch afterwards, gave Bo a bath, and then back home. 

I really enjoyed The Help.  I think my mother enjoyed it also.  I read where the actress that played Minnie is also an Auburn graduate.  She was my favorite character.  If you haven't seen the movie, you need to go soon. 

I have one question.  The battery on my laptop is plugged in but not charging.  I checked and it says it is normal.  Last week it had zero charge and not charging, but somehow managed to get 100% charged.  Has this ever happened to anyone?  If so, how do I remedy the problem.  I don't want to have to buy another battery.

I hope everyone has a great Monday.

Yes, I'm here.  I promise I'm going to get better.  I just can't think of anything to post.

I've been busy at work, plus I have been dealing with my car.  Two weeks ago a woman merged into the passenger side of my car.  The damage was not that bad, but it is going to cost a bunch to fix.  Her side view mirror scraped down the side of my car.  They are going to have to remove the front door and the back door.  In order to fix the back quarter panel, they are going to have to remove the bumper and tail lights.  A lot of labor.   I just found out the other day that the other driver actually had insurance.  She acted so vague.  I was finally contacted by her agent.  He acted like everything will be taken care of.   I'm going to take it to the shop in a couple of weeks.  After a few days, hopefully, my car will be back to normal.

This past weekend, my mother, sister and I attended the reunion of my late father's military unit.  The food was good and the entertainment was great.  We thought the entertainment was going to be before the meal so we got there early.  It ended up being after the meal.  We did have a nice visit with a couple of other widows.  My sister was supposed to leave early, so my mother and I planned to leave with her.  We were going to drop her off at home and then head to see The Help.  My sister's plans changed at the last minute and she wanted to stay.  Oh well. We hope to see it this weekend.  I started reading the book today.  So far, it is really good.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday.

I have been so bad lately about posting.

I, like everyone else, have become addicted to the facebook page, "If you are from ____, you remember...".  I think about every town has one of these.  I have re-connected with so many people.  I think a lot of people are having fun reminiscing about the old days.

I found out through facebook that a guy that graduated from high school with me has written a couple of books.  I started reading one of them today.  So far, I like it.  As soon as I finish, I'll tell you how I liked it.  His father wrote Violent Saturday, which was made into a movie.  I haven't seen the movie, but read the book.  It was very good.  I can't wait until it is on Kindle, so that I can read it again.

Queenie is on vacation this week.  Today was very quiet.  I was supposed to go with some coworkers to a new restaurant/bar after work, but I ended up being the only girl going, so I made the excuse that I had too much to do at home.  I'm glad that I didn't go.  About the time that I would have left to come home, it started pouring down rain.  According to the weather radar, it will rain for a good while.  I hope it is raining when I get ready to go to bed.  I love to sleep when it is raining.  I think everyone does.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday.
