Note to self

You know, sometimes I forget that I am fair skinned and blonde. One should not forget that on days when you are at the beach for 6 hours. YEAH. So we had a blast, but I am paying for it now. Oh well. Somethings are worth it. I also learned another thing, I have to be VERY careful about making sure I take in enough liquid on the beach. I was pretty dehydrated by the end of the day.
Good thing I look good in pink.

The Shelf

Okay, so since I moved in to this townhouse I have wanted a shelf over the washer and dryer. And while I am handy, I am didn't have the time to even think about it. Oh watch out now Tim the Toolman Taylor. I now own a drill, a level (what did I do without one) and a bunch of other cool stuff. OH YEAH, I PUT UP A SHELF!!! And dang it all folks it is level. Yea, I know, I have issues, but I am very proud of my first solo little thing. It doesn't take much.

Check it out.

Interesting to me

It is always interesting to me when you point out to someone that what they are doing is illegal how they respond. This week involved me taking a stand on some time practices that my office engages in. Well, it started a sort of chain of events that left some of the office not very happy with me. They don't consider the "perks" they have been getting an issue. So they are not happy that they will no longer be getting them. Here again, they should have never gotten them to begin why is it an issue?

A rough day

Today was a rough day. I had been worried about my cat. We thought her thryoid was acting up. It wasn't that. She had cancer.

At the ripe old age of almost 13........ she had cancer. I made the hardest decision I have had to make in a long time. I decided the best course of action was to put her to sleep. I cried for the better part of the day, but she was in pain. She had lost about 1/2 of her body weight. It was still hard tho.

She is buried in a beautiful location where she can rest in peace.

Betsy Moo Cow. Rest in Peace.

So who knew that there was a whole world out there that involved creating cars out of a 7 inch piece of pine??? So Jman and I created a pick up truck for the race. We didn't win, but we gave it a good ole college try. I was amazing to me how much goes into these things. But we lost! It upset Jman, but thankfully with a birthday party later in the day, it was quickly forgotten.

I now know a lot more about pinewood cars and how to make them dang fast. Next year we may have more of a chance........

How much is too much??

Okay, so we all have pets that we love. I have a cat. I have had her since she was about 8 weeks old. Love her to pieces. But then I had my son. And as much as I love my cat, my son will always come first now. So now my cat is sick. She has lost 5.5 pounds. She is 12 1/2 years old. If she has what we think she has, then to fix it would cost me over 1K. So is that too much? When I don't have that much spare cash sitting around? How can I watch her waste away?

So Jman had surgery today. It is amazing how quickly they can do things. But how many folks it took to get us there. I think we met 6 different doctors who were going to be in surgery, and then nurses too. But it went quick and we were home by lunch. By mid afternoon Jman was up and driving me crazy again. The specialist called us to make sure that he was recovering well. Most importantly, Jman no longer has adenoids. So hopefully things will go better for the next surgery.

So this is a blog???

Okay, so I am new at this and just getting bear with me.

It is the day before Easter and Jman has surgery in 2 days. Nothing big, but I certainly don't remember anything in the baby books about how to deal with repeated surgeries as your kid gets older.

So I am just playing around with this. I hope it turns out okay.
