We hit 70 yesterday, not as warm today but a great day! I could walk in short sleeves.
There is a fire right next to dh's old job, I am so happy he doesn't work there anymore! If the fire had spread there would have been a huge issue, they have lots of oil in that power plant. A lot of Boston is without power right now. I told his new boss on Sat. night how much we all appreciate the job. I think he thinks I am crazy but Thom is so much calmer with this job. The stress is there but at a much lower level.
It was much colder here than I expected. Good thing I ran back into the house to grab my coat this morning. I only grabbed the thin one though. It is okay I had a good day. I met a friend who I haven't seen for a year or so. She got a new job close to my work. We were walking buddies until she moved away. Now she is back!! Another old friend is coming back too, it is going to be old home week soon.
I got my exercise in. I ate so much this weekend that I have had to up the exercise. We will see how the weigh in goes on Friday. I have another day of work tomorrow, but I need leave early for my teacher conference.
Boston was a little crazy today, no traffic lights and a lot of the city had no power. Two transformers caught on fire and knocked out power. Thankfully no one was hurt! My work had power. They hope to have power back to the rest of the city by 4am.
It is going to be a rough spring, I am really struggling with allergies today! I am too tired and too stuffy to exercise. I just hope I don't gain too much tomorrow! I will cry if I put back on the 2 pounds I lost last week!
Anyone been to Niagara Falls? That is what we are thinking of for a mini vacation this summer. I really need new dining room chairs and have decided to spend money on those instead of Disney this year. I want to start a Disney fund and go next year.
I got a bunch of pages down today. And I used very few swap pieces, just a few cricut cuts. I also finished 2 card swaps. I am exhausted. My eating wasn't great, and I didn't exercise but I am glad I got stuff done!
Our swimming pool caught a mouse last summer! EW!!
Our cat caught 3 bats too. DH caught 3 more. We found how they were getting in the house (through the basement). We has the basement spray foamed before getting it finished and that solved the bat problem.
Sweetie doesn't get to go outside. She has a lot of little toys and she "hunts" them down. It is too funny to watch her. When she finally catches one of her toys, she holds it in her mouth and has this loud meow.
The bats she caught, one I found dead on my bedroom floor. I know she brought it in there for me. The other two, I heard the bat squealing and she had it on the floor playing with it. We had to put a box over it and slide cardboard underneath to get them out of the house.
If we let her outside, who knows what she would be catching! She definitely has the instincts. The other one, has no clue!
ALI don't think Sweetie has ever been outside. She is a pure bred Egyptian Mau but the breeder gave her away. Poor baby got her cornea scratched (not sure how) and two cornea implants! Her eye was still infected when the first transplant was done so they had to do another one. Then we got her. DH calls her pirate cat! Her eye is all cloudy but she can see fine She is really the best cat. Her personality fits her name.
The other one is a pain in the you know what. She isn't allowed inside anymore. She pees on things out of spite! If you keave any little piece of paper on the counter she will eventually pee on it. She used to be a nice cat and loves attention then the peeing started. She still expects attention too!
Thanks Nancy, start walking your shorts will fit in no time! I did all right. I bought 2 capris, 3 shorts, a few t-shirts and a bathing suit! It was a good trip. I also bought gift cards for both CCD teachers, Nicko finishes this week and Lucas next week. I got my sister a night gown and slippers for her bday Sat. And I bought the bagels I like. A pretty successful trip all around. And I met dh at home for lunch, he was at a meeting so he didn't pack his lunch. I am trying to get him to save $$ so he came home for lunch.
