Not such a good day

April 7, 2009

baby-ducks-2On Sunday we decided to take a drive. We wound up at Tractor Supply Co. and found the cutest little things.

After checking out the cute little ducks, we headed home so I could go to a meeting with some of my Starbucks buddies.

The reason for the meeting was not a happy one. One of the women who works at my favorite Starbucks was just diagnosed with breast cancer. She is going to be having surgery at the end of the month. She is an amazing person, with a wonderful support system and is handling all of this quite well. We were meeting to try to organize a softball game to raise money for the American Cancer Society in her name.

While I was there I took a few pictures. The manager asked me to take a bunch of pictures over the next few weeks, as the store is closing soon. The store has only been open a little less than a year, but Starbucks bigwigs have decided that it is not a profitable store, so it is closing.

Here are a couple of the great people that work there.

Although her face is out of focus, I thought this was a great picture.

I am really bummed that this store is closing. There are some amazing people that work there and  I will miss seeing them each day.

Mother’s Day…

April 7, 2009

…came early for me this year.

Here’s the back story:

A couple weeks ago Jeff started teasing me that he knew what I was getting fo Mother’s Day. Deciding to play along, I asked if I was getting a specific laptop that has been advertised on TV a lot lately. Suddenly Jeff sarted pouting. I didn’t really pay too much attention until he said that now that I already know about it, I should pick the one I want. Boy did I feel miserable! I really didn’t expect that he would be getting me one, which is why I guessed that in the first place. Anyway, he suggested I go ahead and get it now instead of later.

So, here is my new toy…

bag

Okay, so this is the bag I got for it…

acer

It is a little Acer Aspire One with a 10 inch screen. Oh, and it is a very pretty blue. I am sitting in bed with it posting this. How cool is that?
