I woke up suddenly the other night and blurted out a wonderful name for an Espresso stand to my husband. "Brewz ..." and he could not remember the rest. Having taken 2 sleeping pills to rest through the night, I cannot remember what it was I uttered nor the reason for waking. Very odd.

Hubby has been working on me to purchase a new Motorhome. He says that we can write off interest payments on our taxes. Hmmmm.

This past weekend, hubby worked on Saturday and Sunday after dog walks & lattes we met the kids in Post Falls to get samples from the Sweetwater Bakery there. Then took Bud, Bit & Bravo for a walk in Q'emlin Park.

The kids went with us to view Motorhomes at Blue Dog RV, I had to potty at the Outlet Store restroom and had KRN hold all 3 dogs while I went inside. However, the dogs wrapped their leashes around her legs & Lil Bit dashed into the bathroom with me while still on his leash. KRN very nearly had a laughing fit and when I came out of the bathroom, she was still heckling! Everyone was hungry and we went to Applebee's in Spokane Valley. After lunch the kids went errand shopping while we went back to another RV dealer in the Valley to look at more motorhomes.

Got Wendy's cheeseburgers on the way home. Stopped in Rathdrum for groceries. Finally got home to the girls and rewarded them. It was cold & rainy out. Brrr.

On Monday, Jen Bunny was working the latte stand because it is Spring Break. Hubby came home after work with a slight sore throat, his back still hurts and he was chilled to the bone after working in the shop for a couple hours. I bundled him up with blankets & heating pads.

Today (Tuesday) I ordered several customized things for KRN's Espresso Stand. Also wrote a letter to Grandpa L so that he can see pics of her new place & a new vehicle that hubby traded.

Misc Post

Can't remember what I wanted to say...

Oh, yes. We met KRN at Costco tonight after I picked up hubby from work at 4:30. Took Bud & Bit with us. They were over excited to see cousin Bravo.

After we shopped for KRN's supplies at Costco and dinner at IHOP, we drove across to Lowe's to look at doggie doors. While hubby went to potty, KRN and I went to the parking lot to walk the dogs. Lil Bit jumped out the back of the car and danced wildly around the parking lot while we tried in vain to catch him. He's a little DEVIL!

Finally managing to capture him, we leisurely walked the dogs around to potty & for some exercise. Bundled everybody up and kissed KRN goodbye.

What a Day!

KRN came over Friday night. She brought Sonic. I fed most of mine to dogs. We watched recorded TV shows - Archer, Hereafter (staring Matt Damon).

Early morning Saturday for lattes - Jen Bunny was serving. Talked to her for a while. She was having a wild day; lots of customers & lots of tips!

Then down to wild dog walk. Stupid idiot in a Toyota decided to come speeding down the dead-end road (most probably to do meth.what a freak) Thank GOD that hubby was there & carrying. The idiot tried to run over our dogs & did not even try to stop - not even when I stepped in front of his vehicle. Picked up poor Lil Bit so he would not get run over. Harriet continued to bite at the tires until the idiot was far, far away. She finally came running back. Stupid guy that even when he sees a vehicle parked, & people walking he is speeding. Stupid drug freaks. I wish they would all die. They are not worth saving. As a taxpayer, I do not appreciate spending my hard earned money supporting them.

Afterwards, we picked up KRN's coffee from Deralee, then took dogs home. Hubby went to shop. KRN & I went shopping. WalMart (hate the Hayden one-no stock. stupid stock) Costco Gas (long long lines) Costco, (where a mother tripped upon her own feet to fall over her kid whose head slammed into concrete in a vain attempt to get her purse that she had stupidly forgotten in her cart!) Big Lots (stank-left immediately) 50% Off Card Store (KRN got RedWhite&Blue flag napkins) Latte Stand (Pina Colada Strawberry Jet Tea) Wendy's (rotten chicken sandwiches with no tomatoes & burgers for dogs). At home I made printed labels for Red White & Brew for KRN's muffins & cookies.

KRN left at 5:00 to go spend overnight with her friend in Sandpoint. Left Beebo for grandpa & grandma to babysit.

New Latte Stand at Base

So very proud of our little baby opening her own latte stand at the AF Base!

 Red, White & Brew

Hubby got home at 2AM. Long drive from Puyallup. The dogs got us up several times in the night to go out to potty. We finally got up at 9am when Lil Bit pooped in the bed. Bad Dog! I have to wash all the bedding.

We got lattes this morning & took dogs on Wild Dog Walk. I filmed it with my new FLIP video camcorder. Cool.

Then went home & unloaded dogs. Took Bud & Bit with us into CDA to get my nails done. Afterwards got pizzas at Little Caesar's; one sausage one pepperoni. Greg also got free breadsticks & sauce.

Drove to Fairchild AF Base to help KRN out with her fridge. Found out that the door hinges cannot be reversed. Helped her with stuff; she made drinks for us - Excellent! & then I went to WalMart with her to get milk while hubby drove the dogs to her house so that Bravo could be walked. Bravo bravely stayed all by himself for over 9 hours today. Big dog!

We talked with KRN for a while because she was so excited about her day. Then we left & went to Home Depot for a new light for her & a heater in the bathroom for us. Stopped to get cheeseburgers at Wendy's, & latte for hubby (had sore throat) at Starbucks (ugh.) also got a Birthday Cake Pop & a Tiramisu Pop to taste what they were. More doughy & a hard plastic-tasting frosting crust. Not good.

Home with the puppies by 7pm. Unloaded stuff & settled down for the night. Finished doing the rest of the laundry & hubby was exhausted.

Sunday & 55 With Sun!

What more can I say? It was wonderful outside today. Opened up all the doors to air out the house. Cleaned the house while the dogs soaked up the sunshine on the deck.

Bye Bye

So far this week, I have been doing 2 hours on elliptical everyday.

Hubby went to Puyallup for Auto Swap Meet Saturday morning at 4am. I was the one who heard his alarm & woke up. He continued to sleep. All the guys went with him. He had to pick up Bruce, Tim, & Kevin.

I got back to bed & hubby had forgotten hotel confirmation. He got stuck on the ice in the driveway with the trailer & dually! LOL. All the dogs barked at him when he came back inside. I got to sleep for another 2 hours until dogs woke up at normal time 6am to pee. Let them outside & staggered back to bed. Then in another 2 hours at 8am, the woodpecker started in on the side of the house and would not stop! Forgot yesterday while shopping to get fake owl to hang on house.

All shit broke loose Friday when a-hole who borrowed big trailer brought it back with lots of broken stuff. So hubby could not take it.

Hubster spent Friday with me. Got lattes, walked dogs on wild dog walk, feed ducks down in Bayview, went to CDA to Costco (I got a FLIP), Wendy's for cheeseburgers for dogs, Office Max for plastic sleeve hubby wanted for Swap pass, ate at hubby's yellow trailer in town - yucky food. Got a latte at his drive thru in town - gross coffee!

Came home & unloaded stuff. Then hubby went down for 3 hours to load stuff at shop; then he came home for 20 minutes to eat lasagne, then back down to shop for another 2 hours to finish loading at shop.

Woke up when the hubby left for work this morning. Dogs insisted on going outside (again!) and I fell asleep in the recliner with a blanket wrapped around me. I woke up again 2 hours later, Lil Bit had been sleeping on my lap the entire time. The only reason I woke up was that I was cold as the dog door was still open!

Went to get lattes & talked to DeraLee about yesterday. She sympathized and said that she really wished she could help.

I did 2 hours on elliptical today. Finally getting back some strength.

Hubby brought home Acidophilus pills that I will try, more ink cartridges for printer, & whey protein powder.

Watched Glee & Raising Hope on TV.

Busy Day Move

Busy day moving KRN into latte stand. I was going to take pictures & forgot!

Hubby and I walked dogs, got lattes, then loaded Bud & Bit into truck with trailer to go move KRN into her latte stand. KRN was sick & had to go to doctor early in morning. So we went over to Hobby Lobby (which thoroughly irritated me because they were playing LOUD Christian music). After we were finished, we met kids at the place to pick up the commercial refrigerator.

KRN was nearly passed out in car. Diagnosed waxy ear clog & given ear drops. So I drove KRN's Jeep back to base & started to unload product. KRN tried to rest by sitting on floor. She really wanted to help but was very dizzy. Matt & Hubby finally got there and unloaded refrigerator, helped unload more product, put it away, and waited patiently for the espresso repair man to fix machine.

I took KRN to doctor down hallway. A total idiot that would not even do anything. He recommended she take an ibuprofen without even examining her! So I took her home & made her rest. Took Beebo, Bud & Bit for a walk. Guys finally made it home. Matt had to leave for work. Hubby made soup for KRN. Then we stayed with her to keep her company until 530.

Went to Don's in N Spokane to pick up axles. Then Wendy's to pick up sandwiches for dogs. Finally made it home. Late.

Sat & Sun Days

On Saturday we took the dogs for a wild dog walk after getting lattes. Talked to Jen Bunny for a few minutes. Hubby went down to work at the shop while I frosted the cupcakes & took them down to the guys later.

Sunday we slept in late after threatening the dogs to let us sleep until 9am. They actually listened to us! Hubby had a KRN burrito & shared it with the dogs. After we both got dressed, we had to unhitch the trailer from the Dodge pickup & unload the bumper from the back of the pickup bed. Then got dogs loaded & went for a wild dog walk after getting lattes.

We needed to get a few groceries & bagels, so we dropped off the girls and then went to Spirit Lake with Bud & Bit to shop. Hubby came home to plow the driveway after the 4 inches of snow yesterday. I cleaned out the fish tank downstairs & gave them fresh water.

Watched a few minutes of Clash Of The Titans before we decided to again take the dogs for a wild dog walk. When we got home, we talked to KRN to finalize the time we need to pick up her refrigerator tomorrow. Big day & lots to do tomorrow to move her into her new Espresso Stand on base.

Friday, March 04, 2011


I had a little bit of energy and was feeling better. So I got a latte, a bagel & 1/4 cup of finely ground espresso beans from the latte stand. Talked to Deralee.

Then came home and vacuumed house, put the FMF outside to air it out with all the windows down as it got to a high of 45 degrees with sunshine today. Paid bills, washed dog beds, put away clothes, and did a couple loads of dishes. Since I was feeling so good, I also managed to do 45 minutes on the elliptical! Yippee. Almost back to normal.

After all this was done, I decided to make Dark Chocolate/Espresso cupcakes with Kahlua frosting. Yum.

Hubby came home at 5:30 and went down to shop to work.

Jeep, Latte Stand & Cadbury Creme Eggs

Kid came over at 10:00 to get her Jeep fitted with new tires & wheels (with spacers). Earl put on the tires & wheels, then took it over to Perfection Tire to have the alignment done on the Jeep.

KRN & I went down to the latte stand so that she & DeraLee could talk business. KRN is opening her own latte stand at the Air Force Base. We are so darn proud of her.

I went home to babysit dogs (plus, I was still not feeling up-to-normal). Put away laundry & dishes. Worked on tying more garland. Working on St. Patrick's day green garland.

Went to pick KRN up at 1:30. We took dogs; Bravo, Bud, & Bit - the boys down to wild dog walk area. They had fun.

At home, Earl had just returned with KRN's car. It looks great. Very modified with taller tires!

KRN's Jeep

We then drove into CDA to shop at Michael's & Staples. Picked hubby up at work so we could eat at Las Chavelas! Had good dinner special for Thursday; Enchilada & Taco dinner. Got Cadbury Creme Eggs at Office Max. Yum. Then we returned to hubby's work so that he could drive his truck home. Talked with KRN until she left at 10:15pm.

Weekday News Update

Blah Blah Blah. That is what I feel. Blah.

Need to try to feel better & get back to exercising & dieting. February just flew by and I was sick with flu for most of it. We are now into March with Spring just around the bend.

I sat in a coma most of today. Tried to get back into things but still coughing & sore throat.
