I haven't had much time to write lately, because I've actually been doing stuff.
I've had a few days off in a row and here are some of the things we've done.
~I trimmed hedges for the first time ever and did an ok job.
~I threw a baby shower for the first time and did an awesome job.
~I got a little bit sick again and am fighting a sore throat.
~My dad left yesterday to go to his new job. He was here for two weeks. He was a good guest, but it's nice to have my house back.
~I went to the specialist yesterday about my colon problems. He stuck his finger where the sun don't shine. He basically told me I have IBS, and if I WANTED to get a colonoscopy, I could, but otherwise, I should try laxatives and stools softeners for a couple of months before worrying too much about it. (Isn't it great that in Canada, if you WANT to get a scope of your colon done, you just CAN?!)
~Armondo is burning yard waste outside right now, and some of the waste is old hay and straw from when we had chickens. Have you ever smelled burning hay? It's pretty nasty! We're smoking out the whole neighbourhood. I feel bad, but ... whatever!
~We've had a few people look at the house lately, but no offers yet.
~We had three appointments in a row not show up. That really pissed us off. The realtor dropped the price bomb again, and we basically said "screw that." There is a house the exact same size, same amount of rooms and same amount of yard in the worst neighbourhood in town on the corner of two extremely busy streets that are asking the same price as us. There is NO way I'm dropping the price of our house lower than that house. Our house is in a
~There are new pictures up on Flickr that I put up a couple of days ago. Go check them out if you haven't already!
~Both dogs, Armondo and I went for a walk on the waterfront yesterday, it was so nice! The weather here has been so gorgeous the past couple of days! I'm a big fan of sunny and warm, but not sunny and hot.
~Jacy is fitting right in in our little zoo. Her and Annie get along fine, and the cats don't mind her either.
~Cherry LOVES Jacy, and Jacy is very patient with her when she tugs on her ears.
Sorry for the crappy post, and the lack of comments on your comments. I swear I'm reading them, I just don't have time to respond it seems. I really don't know WHY I don't have time to, but I've been feeling some pressure from Armondo to spend more "family time" than computer time. Oh, and we've been watching "Twin Peaks" on DVD the past couple of days, and no, Belinda, I wasn't TWO when that show came out, I was at least seven. I think. I'm not sure though. And we watched "Everything is Illuminated", which I highly recommend!
So, starting at 6pm today, I start my week of full time work again.
Hey, does anyone know if you can get TiVo in Canada?
