    Volunteer work with the kids. The good thing about not being paid is that I can walk out anytime I have had enough! How many times have you wanted to be able to do that??

    I work from home period, but I have to go to the office 4 times a week to get work. I live right on his way home so it is nice when we have days like this.

    Going out shopping with my Mom and arguing over what to buy and try on. Nothing like mother-daughter bonding time. (She let me buy shorts I really wanted today She thinks they're too short but they end right above the knee!)

    That's one of the many bonuses about doing the volunteer work with the museum!
    I was in there the other day on some business related to an upcoming day camp and they had a tour group come in and needed a docent and I said: "sorry, can't do it" and left. I didn't feel badly either. I do enough there that I feel I can refuse to do a tour if I don't want too. (plus it was a group of seniors. I probably would have done it had it been kids-nothing against seniors, but they complain a LOT more on the tours than the kids do. The kids have fun, the older adults make my job miserable for the most part. That's why I prefer the kids)

    I love volunteering with kids.





    I think I share Bunny's simple pleasure this morning. A quiet house.

    A quiet neighborhood on a Sunday morning! No renovation work! No gas company workers! No homebuilders! I got to sleep in without any noise awakening me and my kitt'n'kaboodle

    HUGE!!! It's bigger than Rosie now. I'm here to tell you that if that rabbit is any indication, then lettuce, spinach and carrots are NOT diet food.

    And it's spoiled. But what animals are not spoiled in my house?
