Wish it was Sunday…. oh wait… tomorrow is Sunday. The days have boiled past. Now I could really go for a nice hot soak in a tub, a lovely dinner, watch a bit of a movie and then crawl in bed.
Saturday, I went shopping with Jolene. A girl’s day out! Wheeeee!!!! I got a few new sweaters, undies and a skirt. We had dinner at the China Recipe, a decent restaurant in Pueblo. Yummmm…
Sunday, I did grocery shopping with Dan. Not a lot to pick up, but it seemed to take much longer than necessary. Hmm…. maybe it was because we had Morgan with us. teehee….. She needed new shoes, and I refused to buy them without her trying them on. Fussy feet. We went to Chile’s for dinner and had to tease her because she has become a “veggiesaurus”. Best part was her trying to flirt with the waiter. He was late 20’s, and she’s 12.
I started Monday with taking the girls, Brandy and Blanca to the vet. My mom gave me a little bit of money and after paying off some bills, I decided to get them fixed. Dan did a deal with the local vet, and so we got two dogs fixed for the price of one and the repair of a printer. Wheeeee!
Of course, it snowed that day. Lots of it. The roads were slick, and the WorkForce people didn’t make it up from Trinidad. So, I did bits of their job as well as my own. Plus, this week, Dan has been helping me out trying to get the office in better shape. Since he is now the treasurer for the Chamber, he wanted a place for his computer to park when he has work to do. The dogs were real unhappy with the snow when we picked them up. Don’t blame them really.
Plus, we’ve had to pick Morgan up from school this week. Jolene normally takes her to school and has been bringing her home. However, Jolene’s schedule changed. sigh… So, we’ve been driving up to Gardner to pick up the girl after basketball practice.
Thursday, we met with City Council Finance committee and got the ordinance fairly well straightened out. Talk about a sigh of relief!
Friday I went to a meeting with the Colorado State University Extension office about gardening! It was a good meeting and I think that this will be a good project for the city and the county. Then, I got paid!!!! Wheeeee!!! We had to take a big box of brochures to Pueblo’s CF&I Steel Mill Museum, so we did a bit of shopping as well. Dan and I got home late because we stopped into Barnes and Nobel. I got a book and a bookmark. It says “You say WICKED” like it’s a Bad Thing!” and it has the witch from the Wizard of Oz on it. 🙂 We saw our friend Shirley there too. Caught her up on the fun from Monday. She works for Workforce.
Today we got up at the crack of dawn to take Morgan to her basketball tourney in Gardner at 8am…. yawwwwwn! HWY 69 is an East-West road, and coming back (eastward) at 7:15am this morning was horrid. We pulled over for 15 minutes to let the Sun get off the highway. Dan literally couldn’t see to drive.
After playing with the dogs for a bit, we came down to the chamber. Why? Because Dan was meeting John from the finance committee to get the treasurer’s books. Whee….. I put in 3 hours extra time. ah well… Plus played on the computer.
We headed to Gardner around 1:30pm to go watch the girls play in the finals. Gardner took second. The Craven team was really nasty. They played a foul offensive game. grrr… One of the girls got hurt. Liz. She’s a real sweetie, and smacked the begeezus out of her kneecap. Dan, Cathy (the coach) and I gave her ice packs and cuddles while the game finished. It is a bad sprain, but should be ok.
Of course, my car acted up on the way home and so it took us nearly 30 minutes to go 1 mile at one point. We were rolling downhill and couldn’t make the turn to the house so we glided to the Chamber parking lot. Dan worked on the books a bit and I decided to post for the first time in over a week. Gads! I want to go home now!
Where’s my popcorn and movie!?!?!?!?!
One thought on “Just another manic wee-eek!”
Sounds like you are busy and having fun at it.
We have been in the area several times over the past few months. Two weeks ago it was Canon City to look at places. Found one nice place but the guy wants way too much down and the soil is so full of lime it really turned us off.
Today was Pueblo West to look at another place just down the road from the other place that fell through. Well this place is smaller and older. The money offer is right. I need to call this week to see what hoops we will have to jump through to add on. Then will begin the process of sorting through around here, putting things up for sale and figuring out a storage solution until we can add on. I am hoping they are not to hard on building codes. From the area there are examples of wonder additions and then really redneck trailer park additions. Know any thing about Pueblo County and its code enforcements?
So unless I get told that we cannot add on no way no how it is probably a done deal and we will be back down next weekend to put a good faith payment down and do the contracts. We will move in around April 1st if all goes well.
So please wish us well in this. Several people are not so I have all but quit talking about it. Wolf is making his displeasure know by breaking things in his house that require a plumber to fix and we expect him to get worse. Does not help his mental state that his mother just died so we try to cut him slack. sigh
How is Nina? I get my self all freaked out reading about her so I have had to quit. Please just tell me “great” “good” “fair” or “bad” and that I need to just read her posts on PV.
So I do hope you will be happy to have us as neighbors after all.
