Today is going to be another beautiful day!!
I am going to do some work inside and outside today since I basically ignored my messy house and opted for the sunshine yesterday. This afternoon our family will be meeting some friends.

Enjoy the beautiful day and happy Earth Day all!!

Morning Everyone!

It's going to be a beautiful day here. Although I'm still half asleep. As if the "rabbit incident" all day yesterday wasn't enough, our beagle woke us up at 2 a.m. having a seizure (he has epilepsy). Which means, once the seizure is over he loses control of his bodily functions...vomiting, peeing and pooping. Usually we can get him outside before this happens, but not last night. I spent and hour cleaning it all up. Anyway..... LOL.... nothing much planned here for today. DH and I are going to visit his mom for awhile this morning and then I think I'll just chill on the couch with my Sunday paper and some magazines and hopefully squeeze in a few minutes for a much needed nap :)

Dh & I slept in this morning since the kids spent the night at my mom's last night :toothy:

Then he washed the van (inside & out) while I sat outside inthe sun knitting & talking to him. He also unloaded & reloaded the dishwasher AND made the coffee this morning!!

Now we're having lunch before we run off to pick up the kids. I think we're going to grill outside for dinner. Then I have a stinking work meeting at 8pm, some wine tasting crap. Just what I want to do with my Sunday evening :(

Wow today has been a very busy day!

Got the bf up and ready to go spend the day with his son while I did my own things with family - thats a chore in itself! :laugh:

Since I was up at 8am I have:

* Put on coffee for everyone
* Prepped bf and got him out the door with a fresh brewed cup of java and a tasty granola bar
* Met up with a gf for breakfast/coffee/gossip :lol:
* Went and did a mini grocery shop and picked up something for my brothers birthday - which is today
* Gassed up, cleaned up the inside, vaccuumed and hand washed truck (this was GREAT especially since its about 90 degrees out today - a spring 90 degrees, no humidity, no heat index, no bugs, slight breeze - its freaking awesome!) I think I got a lil too much sun though :laugh:
* Took my dad with me to the birthday boys luncheon
* Got laundry on the go - drying on the line out back too!
* Emptied garbage and took out the recycling
* Watched ER (recorded from Thurs evening)
* Paid bills, tweaked budget
* Cleaned bathroom too

All thats left to do is figure out whats for dinner and Im going to enjoy my time out in this beautiful weather! Hopefully the sun will blast this nasty cough outta my system and my ribs will stop hurting :(

:smooch: and I had a great day!

We went and picked up my car, which we'd left downtown at a friend's place because we were going out for a few drinks (which ended up being a great evening, btw).

After that, we came home and did some talking. We'd been on and off getting a second cat, and finally decided that, yes, it would be a good idea to get a female cat to be a companion for our current male cat. With both of us being in school and working all the time next year, we're hardly going to have any time for each other, let alone our poor cat. So we think getting him a friend would be a good idea. There's lots of options at the different SPCAs and on Craigslist, Kijiji and Freecycle, so we'll pick a pretty girl with a good temper, like our boy.

We also went for a nice long stroll in a local park, drove by some different properties for sale, and discussed what our plan of action is. I love talking with him about things like this. We figure it'll be a few more years before we consider getting married, but we will be getting our education, paying off our debts and figuring out if we want to stay here in NS or if we want to move abroad in that time.

So now we are sitting down to dinner, then we'll spend the afternoon cleaning up and vegging out. :)
