As the "Chief" meterologist had advised that the weather would be turning colder, rainy, and with a chance of snow I started packing up all the outside things. Put away the hammock. Cleaned up all the outside summer decorations. Fall is official here. Temps are in the 50s now.
Texted Greg to bring home Sweet & Sour Chicken from Noodle Express. He also brought home a couple egg rolls. After a brief dinner with me, he disappeared down to the shop.
Tuesday 29 September- 'Lil Bit escaped from the backyard several times, so I texted the hubby to bring home more cattle panels, so that they can be cut into 1/3s to keep the little miniature bugger from breaking out.
Attended to a phone call to a shelter for the Saint Bernard Rescue.
Played with the dogs for quite a while, uploaded a new iTunes, rearranged things in the basement, and vacuumed. Also washed clothes & put away dishes.
Wednesday 30 September - 'Lil Bit hit the floor last night and I thought that he had fallen. Hubby said that he had launched himself off. So, at 3:00 in the morning, I was down on the floor cleaning up his poop! Obviously he had decided that pooping on the bed would be a bad idea, but jumping to the floor and depositing a pile of feces by the window was a great idea! I was tired & had also woken up hubby - so we bantered in that sleepy stupidity back & forth for a while before he fell asleep & I laid there with insomnia.
Hubster woke up Wednesday morning coughing & gagging. Blowing his nose, he announced that he had acquired Swine Flu from his contagious replicating-the-earth-with-children co-worker! I told him to stay home from work but he decided that he could go in, see if he felt worse, and if necessary - come home early.
Note - "J" decided that in addition to children from a previous marriage, he was going to have about 8 kids with his current wife. Said current wife has now just decided to "fly the coop" as she cannot tolerate the teenage girl from his previous marriage, thereby leaving "J" raising all the children by himself! Hubby has to endure hearing the whole sad state of affairs from "J" now that they are riding together in training. What a soap opera. Poor hubby.
Took Isabelle into the Vet to get her toenails cut. They have grown a massive amount in just the last week alone. Also made an appointment for Harriet to go into the Vet at 12:15 today - yesterday I noticed a huge lump on the back of her neck.
Dr. Mike decided that the lump on Harry's neck is a reaction from her vaccinations of last week. He was kind enough to not charge for the visit.
While I was out watering plants & trees, there was a distinct smell of cinnamon in the air. Strange.
Did 8 miles on my elliptical today; texted hubby to bring home Chicken Pita at the Pita Pit for dinner. I could really get used to him going into town for work!
The sky in the West turned ultra dark as storm clouds moved in around 5PM - maybe a rain deluge?
