Fabulous Easter long weekend. I had a “to do” list a mile long and did just about none of it. Perfect! Instead I enjoyed the sun, my pillow, J’s company, my puppy, some retriever training, some shopping, and some exercising.

Are you ready for this? It’s 9:44pm and I’m at… drum roll…. 10707 steps for the day!! Twice in 3 days I walked to J’s house. It’s a 45 minute walk so it adds probably 5-6K steps to my normal day.

Today I bought myself a present. I have wanted an outdoor fireplace for at least 4 years now. I finally have one! I am expecting a decent sized check from a client, so I will take it out of there and put the rest towards debt payments. J. the magnificant put it together for me. It had lots of parts and even more screws and nuts and bolts. I will have to take a photo to share with you. Now I just have to call the Fire Inspector tomorrow for a burning permit so we can start a fire! I’m really excited for it!

I also had to buy new glasses today – but that money will be refunded through my medical coverage. The frame on my glasses snapped yesterday. Walmart has stopped doing eye exams for some reason, so they got me into an optometrist in town today so I already had my eyes rechecked. It had been about 3 years and my prescription changed slightly, so it was probably a good idea. Only he did a check for glaucoma – he squirted something into each eye that came out like yellow paint. OOO it burned! I guess I’ll be wearing contacts only as it’ll take 5-7 business days to get my glasses.

Well Mom and Grandma are coming up on Wednesday. I have about 750 hours of housecleaning to do before then, so I’m not really sure how I’m going to work them all in – especially since I’m crawling into bed as soon as I finish this blog entry. Monty has conformation classes tomorrow night too. Oh well.

Today is my sister’s 26th birthday!! Happy Birthday Julikins!!!

G’nite all!
