Not Much to Report …

I slept a lot this week.  I think I’m trying to keep the CRUD I’m exposed to every weekend at bay with loads of sleep through the week … Maybe??? Anyway – I slept a bunch.  And kept cooking to a minimum with Spinach Artichoke Ravioli and a crockpot full of Golumpki, with bushels of …

So this just happened…

Somewhere along the way, DH decided to enlarge the dried up baby pond we have in our backyard.  Sure, I said – thinking to myself, “yeah, someday …” Nope.  That excavator spent a week at my house, and ‘A Boy With His Toy’ got busy.  Turns out what I had envisioned vs. what time, his …

Moving right along …

Got through our tax session (Thanks Jim!) and a fun-filled E.R. weekend; Despite meeting one of the most unpleasant airline employees ever (service desk), we now have extended, four-legged family in NH, CO, NJ, PA and FL.  The pups did great!
