The Child awoke uncomplainingly and dressed with a song and dance.
The Chick Filet drive-thru peeps filled my cup nice and full, whoohoooo — I LOVE when that happens!
By 8:20 a.m. Kelly had finished her last half mile for Marathon Kids 2010-2011. Medal ceremony this Saturday!
Next photo – winter weary friends — please brace yourselves. Live flowers ahead…
Daffodils were jumping out at drivers.
I found the EXACT black pen I LOVE, at the first place I stopped!!
Those of you who are intimate with Pilot Precise Vs know the many-spendored thrill of them.
Did a little happy dance in a store window on the way back to the car.
Sat in an Internet cafe and filled out my green card renewal ap. (Yep, $450 for that.)
Ate a bean, cheese and egg taco there — not bad.
Popped over to the P.O. and mailed my ap. Yesssssss!!!
Bloghopped a while.
Then, (sorry no visuals) ….
Met Kalyani at Jim’s shop where she dropped off her car for service.
Drove Kalyani home.
Picked up Kelly from school.
Ran a couple errands.
Took her to the Dollar Store where with her own money, of her own initiative, and with me waiting outside the store, she bought anniversary surprises for Jim and me.
We were married 19 years yesterday!!!
Took Kelly to gymnastics.
Took that pic through the big plate-glass gymnastics viewing window.
Took that pic of me in the viewing area, all dressed up for our anniversary dinner!
Jim called not feeling so well (has my yuckkies from last week) to ask for a rain check on dinner.
We all ate good food.
I drank beer.
Kelly gave us our presents.
Green and white sparkly flowers in a plastic vase for me, and for Jim — plastic salt and pepper shakers and some pencil erasers!!!!!
I gave Jim his dollar store anniversary surprise — a collage photo frame to fill with updated family pix for his office.
And he gave me my surprise, and HOLY COW, WHAT A SURPRISE…
AN AMAZING NEW CAMERA!!!
The exact one I was saving for — $249.99, but he snagged it for $199.99 with an Instant Rebate, whooohoooo!!!
What a freaking awesome husband, child, day and universe, eh??!!!
(A new camera because the iPhone takes decent pix in only about 10% of lighting situations.)
My New Camera is so precious I can’t quite bring myself to take it out of the box yet.
But I will. Oh yes, I will.
Eventually — and probably quite soon!

And dear Snaggle, I made these all 780px wide today, instead of my regular 790px, hoping they’ll load faster for you.
I do try to think of my friends. I really do.
P.S. There was more fabulous excellent stuff yesterday too, but how much can you people take in one post!!?!??
