I thought my luck would have it that the toothaches have gone away and would stay away. Nope! They've snuck up on me again and the whole right side of my face is in a fight with me to keep me miserable. I know it's a sign to get to the dentist, and fast. But I'm holding out till extra money comes in. That, and I'm a big baby.
I declared my addiction to the HBO series, True Blood in my I want the Second Season Now! post. Since I can't yet have the second season on DVD for my viewing pleasure, I have purchased the first book and have been reading it. There are a total of nine books, all of which I'm sure I will purchase and read. I think I may have taken the addiction a little too far though. The other night we purchased a second iguana and it has been bestowed the name of Sookie. The main character in the True Blood series is a female waitress named Sookie. Forget about Team Edward or Team Jacob. It's Team Bill for me!
Oh, and the purchase of a second iguana was somewhat thrown upon me. Somehow my oldest son and husband got on the subject of how my son needed a lizard of his own and he'd do ANYTHING to have one (except, per his words, clean the toilet with a toothbrush). I knew it wouldn't take much persuading to my husband, as I knew he'd be more than thrilled with another one. So Saturday night, after the campground community dinner and auction, we went to the pet store and purchased one. I will say that Logan has held up his end of the bargain and has been helping around the house to "pay" for the iguana. However, I wonder, is it a sign of love or jealousy when the first iguana that we've owned has buried the new one with wood chips already and keeps walking all over it?!
Saturday we attended a get together for the campground that we are members of. It was nice to see friends that we hang with during the summer and learn of all the new activities being planned once the campground opens up again. Lots of food was ate and an auction helped raise money for the activities. I bought a few things that I didn't need, but it's quite an adrenaline rush to bid against someone and WIN!
The items donated were brought by campground members and I brought in my fair share of items to be sold. I was pleased with how much money my items sold for. I even paid for one of the items that I brought in. That's right, I technically brought and bought! My husband and I had our own bidding numbers and he won a bid on an item that I brought to be sold. Anytime thereafter, I had to make him aware of any items he should not bid on. Guess that particular item was meant to take possession in my household!
