Personal Update: I at lunch, my tummy feels good. The food was yummy, and I did eat a little much. Oh, I have to tell you...here is an interesting story:
I left my stuff at the restaurant after ordering, because they don't take debit and I always forget that. I walked around the back of the restaurant strip mall and down the block to the bank atm.
On my way back I see a man yelling outside of a different restaurant (a pizza restaurant if you are interested) and since I had to walk by I asked him if he was okay, since I saw what he saw just before he almost steped on it. He looked down and said, " Are you?" I looked to his feet where he was looking and their was a dead rat! He asked me what it was, I said: "That's a rat". "A RAT!" he says, and I answer, "It's okay", thinking he was scared of it. He looks at me and kicks it against the trash can with a PLUNK, saying: " oh, we'd better get rid of that, girls are scared by them, and we don't want them to see them". I couldn't help but thinking, "did I almost step on that when I walked by the first time?" How on earth could I have not, unless it literally died in 1.5 minutes. It was sick. I went inside MY restaurant to find my yellow tofu curry, which is what I always order. I was starving, but somehow I couldn't get the rat out of my mind. Where had it eaten the poison that it had died from? I'd hope that it ate it in the alley where it was found...but there was no way to know! Anyway, I gobbled my curry. A rat is a rat, right?
How did you like my adventure? Anyway...I am currently quite content. I am actually sitting in my car. It is nice and quiet and warm.
Book update: I finished David Sadaris' book Holidays on Ice. Oh, I loved the stories, but one in particular called : Christmas Means Giving.
Have you read it? Oh, it is a must story....quite an ingesting look on motives behind giving. I enjoyed it. So I am currently at: 533 pages and 3 complete books :)
Currently I am going to start reading dating da vinci by malena lott. I think it is a good light read for me right now. After that I am trying to decide between: the Saffron kitchen by Yasmin Crowther, The Pearl by Steinbeck, and Night by Elie Weisel. However, I only have an hour before I need to head home and hang out with the boys so my hubby can go to a prayer meeting. I will check back then. :)
Thanks to all you commenters!!!! you are INCREDIBLE!!!
I have now earned $93.00 for clean water worldwide!!!
Plus trish is adding in $5 for every book she finishes!! That brings the clean water total to: $98.00 so far! (make sure you go cheer her on!!)
Where will the dinero ($) go? It will go to an organization I have become quite passionate about. I will be giving it to Living Water International an amazing organization funding the building of wells all over the world in developing nations.
(there is still time to sponsor me!!!)
