June 13, 2012 Wednesday Afternoon

Tuesday night Tony came home from work around 4:30 PM.  When I asked him why he was home so early he said 'because I can'.  Not sure if I liked that answer but was happy to have him home.  I wish he would have called and said he would be home so early, I wouldn't have cooked so we could go some where.  Ate supper and spent the night watching TV and the movie Rogue River.  The movie was OK, entertaining enough.  Went to bed around 10:30 PM after the local TV news.  Asked Tony before we went to bed if he called the court to see if the papers can be faxed to them rather than us driving out there again in a month.  His response was 'did you'.  I said to him, 'no, I didn't get the ticket'.   Guess that means he didn't call.

This morning I got out of bed a little before 7 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito and Kali their pills and shots.  Spent the early morning reading the Milwaukee Journal newspaper.  Showered and left the house around 9:30 AM to get some breakfast at McDonald's and then to Pick N Save to do the weekly grocery shopping.  Almost everything I bought was on sale with coupons or both and I saved 1/3 on the total bill.  After I got home I started working on mixing the next music mix.  Spent the afternoon mixing and listening to it.  Did lay down for an hour with the dogs and listen to the final mix, I think it turned out pretty good.  Will hopefully get it fine tuned and put on my blog by tomorrow morning or during tomorrow sometime.  Not cooking tonight since we are again going to attempt to go to a car show with the Chevy Monster Car Truck thing Tony has.  Hopefully the third time is the charm?  We have tried twice before to go to a show with this car only to have it not working right and turning back home.  Will most likely eat at A&W before the car show since I love A&W restaurants, not only their root beer but their food.   All depends on what time Tony comes home from work tonight.  Thankfully it still stays light out until around 8:30 PM.  In the high 60s today in Milwaukee.  A bit cool with a breeze off Lake Michigan again today.  Suppose to warm up from here forward being in the 90s this weekend again like last weekend.  Tomorrow I have a person from our gas and power company coming to the house for the morning to do an energy assessment of the house.  I figured since it was free and they called me I would have it done.  Might get some free stuff and some helpful hints to lower the bills each month.  Will have to lock up the dogs and listen to them bark the two hours the guy says he will be here tomorrow.

Saw this in the newspaper the other day and thought I would pass it on.  Here's what the dying say are their greatest regrets:
1.  Not having lived their own lives. Not truly living ones own life but living life for someone else or how someone else wanted you to live.
2.  Not having invested more in important relationships.  Dying folks regretted having so occupied themselves with work or other pursuits that they failed to spend more meaningful time with children, family and good friends.
3.  Not having honestly and respectfully expressed their feelings.  This leads to resentment and bitterness.
4.  Not choosing to be happy.  Guess we fail to recognize that, to a large extent, being happy is a choice, not a matter of luck or circumstances.
