Yesterday I had to pay my Kohl's bill & another one so I won't have bills to pay on Friday after work so I can meet Jamie at the church to work on our room for vacation bible school on the 17th. There is a new store next to Kohl's called Ulta. I thought it was a make up store from the signs. I almost started not to go inside. I saw a Bare Minereals display and went on in. I found some blackhead stuff for Rhett but will see if can get it cheaper elsewhere first. Then I began searching for the perfect shade of mauve lipstick. I have not been able to find it in years. I'd buy a tube, then get home & it wouldn't be the right color. It wouldn't be dark enough or look peachy. I tried several but the right one was Cherry Plum by redearth which I never heard of before. It was $14. I bought it. I had to look in the mirror when I got out to the car. I couldn't believe how good my lips looked! I was extremely happy. As I have said before, it doesn't take much for me.
I stopped at Backyard Burgers and got us all burgers for supper. Don said there was a message for me on the answering machine. It was Jimmy calling to tell my our friend Bob's father died. I was sorry to hear that message. After we ate, I called Jimmy. He was actually at Bob's house but Bob had gone on to bed. Jimmy said he and his brother Joe were doing good. The visitation is today @ 5. I told Jimmy I'd be there even though I was supposed to meet Jamie at the church around that time. Friends take precedence and I'd hoped Jamie will understand and she did for which I was grateful.
Nothing on tv so Rhett & I played word games on the game boy. I won the 1st game of scrabble Jr against the computer or whatever is inside the game! Then we played Scrabble blast, taking turns which took all night! I'd forgotten how it is at the end... a bunch of vowels that don't spell any words which is frustrating. So we just turned it off without looking to see how won the game.
I sent an email out this morning about Bob's father's death. The good news is I will get to see Bob & Jimmy this evening. The bad news is the circumstance. In my email, I thanked everyone I sent it to for being my friend, for meeting my prayer requests and for having the same sense of humor as I do. Also I added my Motto of the day:

I have a busy day today. I have to return the Julie Ortalon book Too Perfect to the library today. Its one of the best books I have read in awhile. Why do I now like books about heavy set women and the men who fall in love with them? I have to pick up some prescriptions, pick up Rhett & go to the funeral home. Then we go to the church to meet Jamie. Afterwards, we meet Don, her husband and daughter at Applebee's for dinner.
Tomorrow @ 11 is Bob's father's funeral. Rhett has a birthday party @ 4:30. At 6 is my uncle surprise birhthday party which I still haven't decided if we are going to attend yet. If we should decide to go to the cheap movies afterwards, I'd probably fall asleep!
It was ironic that Mike E sent me an email about Anger Management. I was almost scared to open it after what happened earlier in the week. It was something I'd read before but forgotten about until I read more than halfway down. It was still just as funny and probably sexist against men but who cares? I just wondered if he'd sent it to my cuz, but was too scared to ask him. Now I seem to be second guessing my friends and I should not do that.

My friend Bob is actually answering emails today! He said his father coded but died peacefully in his sleep. The drs had found pancreatic cancer which would have been a long, painful ordeal if he had not coded. Bob says he's giving up fussing at God and to remind him of his new resolution:
"Even when things don't work out like I want or think they should, tell me to hush my fussing because God knows best."
