Alan had to work in the store today because he had already given our employee the day off so my girls and I picked up my Mom and We also went to my Aunt MaryAnn & Uncle Eddie's 38th Anniversary surprise party around 2:00 p.m. We had a great time.
The picture on the right is them coming in and being surprised.
We got home around 7:30 p.m. and then I went over to go and feed my cousins turtles while she is upstate at her cabin. They are so cute as far as turtles go. I will try and get a picture of them when I go to feed them again. Then Alan and I took the girls to Friendly's for a quick bite. David just wanted to stay home because he wasn't feeling to great.
On the way home, we stopped at Dunkin' Donuts so I could get coffee and there was a homeless man sitting outside. I felt so bad for him. It really does make me feel grateful and blessed for what I do have. You know when you complain...I don't have this or that....well it puts life into perspective. I ended up giving him the few dollars that I had left in my pocket and I know he appreciated it. Last year my son David and I volunteered through church at the soup kitchen making sandwiches for people in need. It was a good experience and I am hoping to do it again.
I got home and grabbed my Ipod and went walking with Molly for a little while. It is good exercise for both of us and helps me sleep better. Oh and speaking of Molly doesn't she look cool with her sunglasses!! LOL!!
Well I am off to go read some before I get to sleep. So far the book I am reading "The Shack" is very good. I wish I had more time during the day to read. It is hard with the kids running around so I am lucky just to have a little quiet time at night to read in bed.
