I woke up again at 5:30 a.m. It's a curse upon my head. Dog and cat both were sleeping until I woke them up! I am so happy it's a weekend. I did manage to go to work yesterday and I felt so much better than I had. It was a bit hectic there for a Friday but I managed to get through the day.
My brother and his wife (who live next door to my mother) have chosen to spend the weekend at my mother' s mountain vacation home. Yesterday they babysat so my mother could run errands before they left. My middle brother's wife came over and babysat later so my mother could get her hair done. She also supplied dinner for them so my mother was feeling a bit spoiled. I was glad to see them doing those things for her.
I find I am semi addicted to a game on Facebook called Yoville. You are given a virtual apartment and some starter pieces of furniture. Then you can clock into the local widget factory and get paid every six hours. If you have people join your crew you get more money and promotions. You can shop at the town's fashion shop and the furniture store and even a pet store. I aspire to own a dog but first I want a house with a yard for him to play in. There are several style houses you can buy. The trailer is the cheapest, then a ranch, then a cape code, then a gothic and then a modern house. The modern house and a tree house must be purchased with YOdollars. Yodollars must be PURCHASED with real life credit cards. Seriously. One of the bosses where I work purchased her modern and made it a swanky beach house. I am old fashioned and like to work hard for what I get. To tell you the truth though I am tempted to spend ten dollars and speed up the process. Just when I thought I was mature enough to experience delayed gratification. Life is short. Who knows what will happen in Yoville." Won't you please, won't you please, please won't you be my neighbor?"

I'm glad you're feeling better! I've about Yoville, and I'm on facebook, but I don't spend a lot of time there.

Have a good week!

My son is addicted to some kind of quiz game on Facebook. I guess it's happening to a lot of people!
