1. haven't slept much all week, so i'm really beat. thankfully, i'm taking tomorrow off to go to p.a. for the weekend.

2. looking forward to the crayola factory, and an easter bunny train ride and egg hunt. hope the weather cooperates.

3. waiting to hear blood test results for our maine coon. he's been sick, but recently is back to humping our clothes and growling with a mouthful of sleeve or pants leg, so i think he's better.

4. i'm smiling thing of something my son did last night. he was getting whiney and wanted to be carried everywhere, so i obliged.
then my wife walked in and said "oh boy, you're really getting over on dad, aren't you?", to which he tried to hide a wry smile by burying his face in my chest, then bursting into an uncontrollable giggle, and then tried to change the subject, then started kissing and hugging everyone.
it was really funny, and i'm glad he knows he can count on me.

5. gotta think up a good prank to pull this sunday, and a good victim.

The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

2. Kids are watching the muppet show, that show is great!
3. Going to a "meeting" tonight. It will be fun. It's for the dance company I'm involved in. We will be looking at choreography for next season.
4. dh should be home from work soon. Cross your fingers that he got some sleep last night. I should put a sign on the door that says No Grumps Allowed.
5. Happy Friday Everyone!

Got my hair washed.

Washed the sheets and hung them out to dry.(it finally stopped raining).

Took a nice long walk (I always say my rosary when I walk).

Went to Sam's to get gas for the car.( The nice man who works there filled it up for me again).

Happened on some garage sales. Got lots of books for 25 cents each.

All in all, it has been a beautiful day. Sitting here I can hear some doves cooing. Sweet!!
There is no path to yesterday.

1. James will be home in a few hours, for the weekend. Yay!
2. Our air conditioner is working (supposed to get up to 105 today)
3. My latest kidney stone episode is over (tiny bit of soreness today, but haven't even needed Tylenol, let alone Hydrocodone)
4. Cubbie (our dog) is lying on his back, sound asleep--he can always make me laugh!
5. I got to sleep in my own bed last night!**


**I was in too big a hurry yesterday and locked my keys in the house. The locksmith wanted $50 to let me in. Since James was going to be back today, I wasn't willing to pay that. I could have stayed with friends. Fortunately our neighbor was able to get me in the house (luckily it took long enough that if anyone else ever tried, the neighbors would all get suspicious and check it out! lol)
