I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin

I have to be honest and tell you that I haven’t really been Hooked On anything here lately.  With the kids school stuff and baseball and regular home issues, I haven’t had time to be “into” anything.

I had to take my husband to the doctor yesterday.  He’s hurt his shoulder at work.  The doc was really nice and so far it’s just a shoulder sprain, but he ordered an MRI for next week.  Since he got hurt at work it’s workman’s comp so his work will have to approve the MRI.  Fingers crossed that it isn’t anything majorly troublesome.

Today I’m going to B.G. to get a couple of things from Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart.  I’ve got to finish up my mom’s birthday gift.  I’m a terrible present giver since her birthday was on Tuesday and she still hasn’t received her gift from me.  She did like the post I wrote about her, but I don’t think that’s exactly what she wanted for her birthday.  I’m going to take some trusty hand sanitizer with me.  People are going to think that I wear Germ-X as perfume….  If it keeps the bugs away… I. DO. NOT. CARE.  Kaia has been coughing and complaining of a sore throat.  I’m worried, but I’ve seen these things before with her.  I believe it’s allergies, but I’m going to call the pediatrian today and make her an appointment for next week, just in case.  I’d rather be safe than have the flu floating around my house.  I’m going to try to head by the secondhand store that Cam introduced me to sometime today.  I’m running on 2 pairs of jeans and I LOVE jeans… so I need more than 2 pair.  I haven’t been since she moved to Georgia and I think she’ll be proud of me for going without her.

Next week, I’ll give you all the details (if anything interesting happens) and maybe some photos too!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  See ya on Monday!!

UPDATE:  I didn’t want to you guys to be gnawing on your nails in anticipation of photos when, in fact, I forgot my camera…  But trust me when I tell you that I didn’t come across anything photo worthy.  Except maybe the Civil War memorial at the courthouse.  The secondhand store was a disappointment because all 5 pairs of jeans I tried on were obviously made for someone else because they didn’t look right.  I ended up with a $3.18 t-shirt.  I did find all Simplicity patterns were on sale for only $0.99 at Hobby Lobby though….
