I bought four new Kindle books today for under $5 total. This makes 45 books on my Kindle carousel plus the Bible. See you guys in 7 years......
Like last Saturday, it is too hot to do anything. I prepped every room in the house to be cleaned, started laundry, piled all that needed to be folded and hung up on the couch...and then nothing happened. It was so hot I couldn't even sit in front of the fan without fatigue.
So I retreated to the bedroom, laid in front of the fan, and read.
Around 10:00pm I had psyched myself up to get up and be productive, and then I got a text that my Uncle had passed.
I then decided that I was sad, and bed is where I should stay.

Red loved Jesus, his family, church family and friends. He was always ready to go almost anywhere and ready for a game of cards, especially if food was involved.

Colston and her husband Red; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. He will truly be missed.

Anyone that knew Red knew of his famous saying, “Well Looky Here” and it will forever be left with us.

Sunday was a poopy work day, but I did get to leave by 5pm. Came home, attempted to eat a sandwich with my swollen gums, and enjoyed the air conditioning.
I finished this book!!! Love!!!!
Destination Truth: Memoirs of a Monster Hunter by Josh Gates
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As an avid fan, I was so excited to buy this book! Mr. Gates did not disappoint! It was fun to be watching the show and be reading that very chapter in the book. Josh is funny, witty, and the real deal. I need more books!!

Okay, see this? Where it says 0% chance of rain on Sunday?
Tell that to my car windows that I left down.
Monday I mostly complained about my swollen gums and worked until 6pm, then I went to my Uncle's wake.
I did see one of my seven readers! Hi Ang!!
I came home, immediately devoured all of the soft food I could find, watched John Cena's nose get broken, then went to bed.
Tuesday I was up and at work before the chickens.
I did hear a funny story from a guest that said his wife was smoking and she put the cigarette out in a hanging plant, and when they returned home from dinner, the entire porch was on fire.
I was so tired Wednesday morning that for 0.02 seconds I thought about going back to sleep and just working Friday instead.
I am glad I didn't.
On the way I received a text that I let my car read to me.
My car then apologized for giving me all that bad news in one text.
2 people called in. One didn't show. No one else will answer.
This means, that after we shift people around, and put Laura in laundry to cover that area, each housekeeper is looking at 17 and 18 rooms each.
It is an average of 40 minutes a room to make sure everything is stellar, we pride ourselves on that.
So I had to hand those papers to the 4 gracious people that came into work, and we tried not to cry together.
I then looked at Scott, and he knew what we had to do.
*cue screaming movie track*
It honestly was not that bad. I think I cleaned 12 rooms, and Scott made all of the beds.
I really really cannot get the stupid insert inside the duvet.
Of course, I don't have Scott's "technique" down pat.....
It was a good day though. Scott and I didn't fight too much, it's not a secret we don't work well together.
The boss lady fed us all breakfast and lunch, so free food makes every day a better day.
I didn't even nap when I came home!
Thursday was very uneventful. I like them that way.
One of my closest friend's dad passed away.
No matter the age, it is not easy. I had months to prepare for losing my dad, but still, when I got the call it was a shock.
Clay has been my friend for many years. I think 1995, right as we both graduated.
Somewhere around here I have his Senior Graduate photo with the absolute worst porn mustache.
Here we are, through the past 20 years.
I have many more, I am too lazy to dig for them.
I have a handful of friends that have stuck with me over the years.
When Rebecca got married, my daddy insisted that everyone get in a picture together.
I stood to the side and said "those are my friends, yo!"
The photographer was like, "do you want to be in the picture?", and I said "oh no, go ahead -_- "
As you see, I only hang out with attractive people.
I will spare you all of my ailments on early Friday morning, but by the evening, and a handful of medicine later, I lived.
My mother and I attempted to go to Zwolle, and it is as fabulous as it sounds, with no real idea of where we were headed.
We filled up on gas just in case.
Finally found the funeral home, saw Clay and the fam, paid our respects, then headed home.
I discovered on the Boomerang channel that The Smurfs, Scooby Doo, and The Flinstones come on every day .
I possibly have my DVR full.
I am already working on the next blog that will be full of pictures of Lil.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
