Back to School and Off Work

I’m on a 9-80 schedule at my office. That means that I work 80 hours every two weeks over 9 days and get every other Friday off. I love the schedule. It gives me an extra day off every two weeks, all year long. During the summer when SuperPizzaBoy is not in school it gives us an extra day together. It is really nice though during the school year. Then I get my day off with Sweetie. I mean I love SPB but I like spending time with just me and Sweetie also.


So Friday was my first 9-80 day since school started. Sweetie and I didn’t do much. We helped set up the lower school book fair. SPB is in the upper school but hey, we are helpful folks. Actually Sweetie is the helpful one and I was just tagging along.

Then we went to see Woody Allen’s new movie Blue Jasmine. Oh, it is a great movie but also very raw and heavy. But hey, the theater is in the midst of a renovation and they are installing these deluxe recliners in the auditoriums. I’m taking my snuggie next time! Do you have these where you live? I much recommend them.

Now this is a hot #steaming cup of #coffee

Then we went to lunch at Kosmos on Peoria in Brookside.

We picked up SPB from school and brought him home. Sweetie is in making dinner and of course I’m in the yard playing with my Ipod Touch Hipstamatic App. It has a multi-exposure setting so I did the old hand in the sky covering the sun trick and then took a picture of our crepe myrtle blossoms.

And then a straight double exposure of the same thing at a slightly different angle. Kind of gives it a dreamy look is what I say. You’re no help in getting dinner ready  is what Sweetie says.

Then we packed up some chairs and the kid (along with his DS of course)(if you don’t know what  a DS is, count yourself as being very lucky, take my word for it!) and headed downtown to see the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra play at Guthrie Green. They played a variety of music from waltzes, to broadway tunes, to movie music. It was great. At the end they played some patriotic music and the there were fireworks!! (We love fireworks.)


And even better it was against the Tulsa skyline.

I’m so glad I figured out how to use the fireworks mode on my camera.

I do feel bad though because I broke my rule against reading the manual. Manuals are for Democrats don’t you think, not hard working Republicans. (Mainly because most Republicans can’t read) (But they do have strong opinions) (I’m just joking folks. I heard rumors of a Republican in Massachusetts who can read. I mean if you choose to believe that there is a Republican in Massachusetts then I guess that it is not hard to make the leap that he or she can read.)


After the concert and fireworks we went to Braums for a little ice cream.

And that is that!!

What did you do today?

    I haven’t been to a movie theater in decades but those recliners look comfy enough to fall asleep in. Nice fireworks shots. So what is a DS?

    As I’m recovering from knee replacement, I had nowhere near as busy a day as you! It rained v. heavily here so my nurse (Maui daughter) cleared out my wardrobe and the charity shop received an enormous plastic bag full of clothes. I then had a ginormous sleep to recover and we cooked dinner together and then I was in bed by 9.00p.m. Nowhere near as exciting as yours, but I enjoyed mine:-)

    Yep, fireworks mode takes all of the guesswork out of photographing the light show. I do love Braums, but you’re likely to find me out at Freddie’s Frozen Custard. As long as it’s cold and creamy, I’m all in!

    Oh, Braums…how I miss my trips to Wichita. I’m glad your company does flex all year round. I was only able to get 3 half-flex days in all summer. We’ve been told it’s going away next year…my boss hates it when people take time off so she’s managed to get rid of the flex schedule. Those theatre seats look amazing!

    WOW! You sure did pack a lot into one day!

    I might have to read my camera’s manual because your fireworks photos are awesome. FYI: We don’t have Republicans in Ontario either. We have Conservatives, Liberals and NDPers. I’m thinking none of them can read. (Yeah, I was just kidding, hehehe(

    You did pack a lot into your day off! Love the look of that ice cream to round it off.
    My Friday was spent shopping/lunching/museum visiting with my just-returned-from-Canada-and-about-to-go-back-to-university daughter. Precious time.
