Today is the only day this week where the only thing on my calendar is "go to work." Why do I over-schedule myself so?
This morning I was washing dishes and tidying the kitchen in preparation for our cleaning lady to come later today when I looked out the window and spotted a large pickup truck with a trailer parking right next to our house. It wasn't long before another truck, this one with a flatbed trailer, pulled up alongside the yard.
I went into the bedroom and poked my sleeping husband. "Do you know why there are workmen at our house?" I asked him.
It turned out that they were here to start replacing our roof. I think it would have been nice to know that they were coming, but apparently that was all worked out after I went to bed last night. I went out in my pajamas and pulled my car out of the garage and onto the street before anyone had a chance to block me in.
Tonight I am planning on painting the baseboards in my bathroom, which is the last significant thing that must be done before that room's remodel can be declared complete. There's no real hurry, but I am hosting a game night on Saturday, so it would be nice to have all of the details taken care of beforehand.
Velcro is back from the vet wearing an Elizabethan collar (lampshade) around her neck. Let's hope she does better with it than this cat. According to my husband, she is not at all happy about the collar, but she has to wear it for several more days yet. I will be giving her twice-daily doses of antibiotics. Lucky me!
Her tumor was cancerous, but the vet is fairly confident that they got it all surgically. At this point, we'll just have to observe her closely...which we do anyway.
Ooh, one more news flash. Since we still don't have the Mac Pro back from the
vet Apple Store, we managed to use our most recent band practice session to finally choose a name. It's metal...it's WoW-tacular...it's a little cheesy...it's...Dark Crucible.
To give you an idea of how huge a geek I am, I must admit that one of the main deciding factors in the name choice was that the .com domain was available. Seriously, that's a nerd omen. Don't bother to go to the site just yet - I still need to transfer my Bandzoogle account to the new domain, get a logo designed, etc., etc. before I'll be ready to do anything with it. Still, it's progress.
That's all I have for you today, ladies and gentlemen. Tomorrow: linky goodness. Wednesdays are like that.
