Of course, I don't know what happened, but I suppose I do. I'm sorry to hear this.

1. Woke up to a sunny Saturday, with hopes of a bit of a warmer weekend. (Bucky is welcome to any remaining snow - if I never see it again, it will be too soon.)

2. This is the last day of CST. Daylight saving starts tonight!

3. Going out shopping for a more additions to the new wardrobe today. (I got a promotion at work which always requires a clothing update, and am also shopping for cruisewear for later in the spring.)

4. Choosing a restaurant for dinner out tonight - Chinese or Italian?

5. Taking the dog to the P-A-R-K. It's been a long winter with no P-A-R-K time. (This is the only thing on his list for today - 6 times over!)

6. Picking out and booking the land tours for our Mediterranean cruise.

1. Awake at 5:45, bummer.

2. Started to go for a walk, had to go back in the house, there was still a coat of ice on the sidewalks, from the thaw yesterday.

3.Went out to WalMart, pickup a few things, checked out the price of celery hearts, still $1:99.

4. Stopped at Borders to get a gift cert. for daughter-in-laws birthday.

5. Went through all my spices and got rid of some old ones. Put all the baking ones together and all the cooking ones together. I always put them in alphabetical order, so much eaiser to find.

6. Going to start changing all the clocks in the house, DH claims he doesn't know how to do it. Yeah, sure!!!
