The NBA Finals have thrown my blogging schedule off

On Saturday, I finally caught up with my blogging and thought I was set to get off on the right foot of being caught up this week. After all, Mondays are the night for The Bachelorette. I knew what I was going to blog about, right?

Well, the NBA Finals are on tonight, and the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors have pushed the latest in Hannah's ongoing saga to tomorrow night. I guess I actually learned of this on Saturday after I finished blogging. 

Throwing off the day is just par for Monday. 

I had to go back out to Office Depot today because when I went out yesterday, they had printed part of my order wrong.

While I was out that direction, I went out to the school to pick up graduation photos that were supposed to be ready today. Well, they weren't there and evidently at 2 PM today, I was the first person who had attempted to pick them up. I'll have to make another trip out there at some point.

I went out to check on my plants in the backyard and realized as I unlocked my back door that my succulent that's been sitting on a shelf for probably about a year suddenly took a downward turn. Literally. It was fine a 2 or 3 days ago when my mom and I were looking at it. I never knew it was sick. 

It's like it deflated and flopped over.



I started picking a few leaves off a plant in a hanging basket on my clothes line pole (yes, my current backyard had clothesline poles and an old school mega tall TV antenna circa 1962 on a concrete base). I saw something moving in the begonia basket next to it. A bird was in the basket about 18 inches from my head. It flew out the back side and started squawking at me. It was a small, but fierce bird. Scared the 

Tomorrow, I have a meeting to start off the day, need to print mailing labels and get galleys down to the post office. Socrates has been waiting a week for me. I told him I was going to be back last week with a load. 

Tomorrow afternoon, the inspector goes out to look at the house I'm in the process of buying and I have to meet up for the report. I want to go by to look around the house and plot and plan out where I am going to put everything and how I might want the painting done. 

I brought my laptop down not only to blog tonight, but to work on my VBS lesson for next week. Because I got this bright idea that I would rewrite the lyrics of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire," and told people about it, I now need to work on writing it, even if it is 10:30 at night. 

I should have kept my mouth shut.
