Sorry for the late posting of entries tonight... it's been a busy day!
First of all, I woke up early this morning (at 8:30, when I'm usually asleep for an hour longer than that on Saturdays)... so by the time Jessi got home from her Weight Watchers meeting I was fully awake, and ready to make breakfast.
After breakfast, we went out to hit some garage sales... I found a few neat items, and Jessi found a very neat item at the very first one we hit: The Marvel Video! release of Captain America cartoons from the 1960s on VHS. I used to have this, as well as many others, but sold them a while back when I was between jobs. I picked this copy up for a buck!
Later, at the local Flea Market, along with a few children's books we didn't have (such as a Dr. Seuss book), I also found "Plants of Peril," based on Batman: The Animated series, and published by Golden... a square-shaped book, but in comics format! It was written by Jack C. Harris, pencilled by Carmine Infantino, inked by Frank McLoughlin, lettered by John Costanza, and colored by Rick Taylor. This was apparently published in 1993. I had no idea that Infantino did anything in the DCAU style!
We got back home from garage sales with just enough time for a quick snack before Jessi had to go to a doctor appointment (nothing to worry about, just a physical exam as part of our adoption process... my own physical is scheduled for April 4). While Jessi was there, I took the dogs for a walk, and then stopped at the library (my fourth visit this week!), where I checked out 13 books and 2 dvd sets, turning in a few other books I'd already read. Once I got back from that, I was able to finish reading one of the two books I'd still had checked out.
Once Jessi got back from her doctor appointment, we finally watched Thursday's Smallville episode (wow, a lot of stuff happened there that'll have ramifications the rest of the season), then we went out for dinner.
Since today was Saint Patrick's Day, naturally we went to a Mexican restaurant. The food was good, but way too much of it, so there's some leftovers in the fridge. After getting home from there (with a quick stop at Home Depot to get some extra keys made for Jessi's car, and to look at washers and dryers), Jessi popped open her new Dell laptop, and tried to figure out why it wasn't playing CDs or DVDs.
Well, I wasn't much help there, being a Mac guy, and so she called up Dell, and spent about two hours with the guy there (based out of Canada, in case you're curious) getting her laptop set up correctly so that DVD/CD drive would work correctly... part of which involved restoring her hard drive to factory specs (meaning she had to archive off some files she'd saved there), and once that was done, it was another hour to reinstall what she'd previously installed... but once that was all done, she could play CDs and DVDs... just in time to go to bed nearly two hours later than normal.
Tomorrow should be pretty busy, too... breakfast, walk the dogs, then my parents are coming down here to apparently buy us a new washer and dryer, then we're meeting some people that Jessi met earlier this week who have been doing the foster-to-adopt thing already... then after that will be dinner!
Somewhere in there, we'll have to manage to do lunch, too.
