Happy Hump Day! The last 48 hrs have been a bear. I was ready to go to bed when Mike got called in to work. There was a chemical spill and the guard didn't know what it was. That was 2 am. Of coarse I just laid in bed reading, as I couldn't sleep. Mike got home at 4:30 am, finally. He realized he was too wound up to sleep and he'd only get a little, so he went and showered. Then he proceded to talk to me, so I couldn't sleep. I finally fell asleep around 5:30 to have Angela wake me up at 6. Geez....it didn't get better either. Fell asleep when Angela left at 7 then Lily and my neighbor got me up at 9 am. So, I had about 2 hrs of sleep.
So...what are we celebrating.....
1). Measure Your Feet Day:This holiday is a day to, well it's a day to measure your feet. Huh? Why? I have no clue why....just go with it.
2). National Pie Day: This holiday was created by the American Pie Council. The American Pie Celebration began in 1986 to commemorate Crisco's 75th anniversary of "serving foods to families everywhere." National Pie Day is a special day that is set aside to bake and cook all of your favorite pies. On this day, you are also encouraged to bake a few new pie recipes. And most importantly, it's a day to eat pies! I'm planning on making a banana cream pie today....
3). National Handwriting Day: National Handwriting Day was established by the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association in 1977. According to the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) website "The purpose of National Handwriting Day is to alert the public to the importance of handwriting. According to WIMA, National Handwriting Day is a chance for all of us to re-explore the purity and power of handwriting." January 23rd was chosen because this is the birthday of John Hancock. John Hancock was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence. It's sad, but our schools barely teach handwriting now. Both of my kids have a terrible time just signing their name in cursive, because the school didn't teach it.
4). Snowplow Mailbox Hockey Day: It’s wintertime and time for snowplow drivers everywhere to see how many rural mailboxes they can knock over. Twenty extra points for boosting one into the next township! LOL. Guess you northerners should guard those mailboxes today! John....let me know how many points you earn today....LOL...you too Larry.
So, have a great day. I just have too much to do....and not enough time (or incentive) to do it.
