Freaky Friday Rants and Raves 7/30/04

Can it be? Is it really 8:30am EST and no one has started the Freaky Friday thread??? ALRIGHT, I'll do it.

Rave: The Olympics are going to start soon.

Rave: We can move into our new house on Labor Day weekend. Yippee!

Rave: To relieve stress from the housebuilding process, I've been working out the last 2 weeks and I'm already starting to firm up.

Rant: I'm sore.

Rave: It's been delightfully cool this week in my part of the world.

Rant: It's also been raining.

Rave: My daughter has her horseback riding lesson today. Ooohhhh, she loves it.

Rave: The "This forum is so addicting thread" on the Europe board.

Let's get this ball rolling!

Rant: The tax free purchases on school supplies does NOT include, of all things, lunch boxes!

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!

Rave: All my guests from the past month are gone and DH and I now have our home to ourselves again. Ahhhh.

Rave: After some much needed rain, the weather is so gorgeous that I can see the fine line of the horizon on the ocean, along with five surrounding islands very clearly.

Rave: It's Friday and it's pay day! Looking forward to a quiet, relaxing weekend of reading after I get all my chores done.

Rant: My uncle is very sick in the hospital. We're hoping he will pull thru.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!

Rant: It's an almost 8 hour drive.

Rave: One of my best friends I have not seen in 20 years will be there!

Rant: Some people I really wanted to see will not...

Rave: I'm with ya on the temps Bonnie. We have another horse show here in Raleigh this weekend, and it may rain, but at least it won't be 100! Congrats on the walking!

iceeu2: At least in the State of Florida. I even went back in the store to inquire about it after looking at my receipt. The customer service lady showed me the list the State provides, and there it was..lunch boxes are taxed as normal. Even ones under $10.00.
Go figure.

BTW, regarding "tax free" shopping - by me, socks are taxable as they are considered an "accessory". Don't know if that is the same where you are. It just came as a surprise to me!
