It is almost the middle of March and it was below zero for lows the past two nights. I soooo want to be outside, plotting where the new garden is going, watching all the flowers and trees start to bud, bringing out the deck furniture.
I bought myself flowers because they looked like spring. I'm not a big rose fan-if the Dude is going to bring me cut flowers, I would much rather have tulips, daffodils or lilys. These just said 'take me home' so I did!
The Dude made me some breakfast
and then we started cleaning out the rest of the laundry room so we can finish painting and putting some cabinets in there so all the mess can be contained behind doors. I'm tired of junk everywhere. He about died when I started pulling things of shelves and throwing them in the trash. I save everything. The older I get, the less stuff I want around-who'da thunk it? Since we have Hermit Crab's grad party in almost exactly 3 months, we thought we should get all those small things done. I'm not redoing the house-I know several people who actually remodeled their homes before grad parties. I'm painting the bathroom, mainly because it has to be done. It has been 8 years and it needs to be done. I'll clean the carpets and pick up the hairballs off the floor, but that is about it. I'm not out to impress anyone-if you don't feel comfortable with my 15 year old furniture and my crabgrassed lawn, I can show you a newly remodeled number down the road. But they don't have as much fun as we do, so I'd stay here and grab some chow, a beer, a chair by the fire and talk to fun people.
My food posts will be moved out a few days since we are busy with sanding, painting and installing. He just doesn't get that I may have more important things to do, like hang out here. Jeez.
Everyone have a great weekend. I have Heather's blueberry lemon bars on tap as I found some decent looking berries finally.
Oh, and the one I forgot at school yesterday? Went and got a date to prom. Time to contact friends with older daughters and see if we can borrow a dress. She agreed to go if he realizes it is only 'just friends'. I still think they look at me and see ATM on my forehead :)
