Our temperatures are playing games with us again. It's fairly warm out but it rained and rained and rained today and now the wind is blowing. All of the snow that was in our back yard is now running through our crawlspace. We set up the pump and it'll be dry in a little while. There was so much snow and then all the rain from today on top of that is too much for our already saturated ground to absorb, especially since it's mostly clay.
We're going out in a few minutes to get Kate an iphone and to add her data packet to our phone plan. She was going to wait until we got Pk his new iphone (when the 4G ones come out in a few months) but she decided she couldn't wait that long. We're going to have dinner and then come home and crash. Pk and I have been trading a cold/sinus infection back and forth. I went to the doctor last night for my regular visit and he said my ear was all red and my throat is red and my sinuses sounded packed (for the record, none of this was a surprise to me). I have a new antibiotic prescription and Pk will see the doctor tomorrow so that we can get rid of this thing once and for all (or at least until the next one comes along).
Kate got a new phone and I will admit to a little phone envy. She got a smart phone, an Android. It's very cool and not even too expensive. Pk keeps telling me I need to upgrade my phone to a smart phone but I figure he has one and I don't need one. My (pink) phone just makes calls and texts and it's all good. But, standing there in the store with all the new shiny toys is tempting.
It's already almost 9 o'clock and we just got home and I just got settled. I want to work on my mystery shawl for a bit. I finished the first clue and am working on clue 2. I have a week until the next one and if all goes well, I'll have time to finish. I tried to take a photo but the lighting is so bad due to the rain that it'll have to wait. It really is pretty and I love the beaded bits.
I was never a person drawn to sparkly things, I think because my mother dismissed any sparkly, feminine thing I admired as a child. As a grown up, I am drawn to sparkly things sometimes and I have to fight the urge to automatically put it down. I LIKE sparkly things sometimes and it's OK. It's OK to be feminine and to like girly things. I never realized how much I liked pink frilly bits. My mom didn't like them so there weren't any in our lives. Now, I have lots of pink things and I even have a sweater that has sparkly buttons that I wear to work all the time (the buttons look like rhinestones and I love it). My inner beauty pageant queen is sneaking out. This could be dangerous. If I start poofing my hair out and wearing sashes, someone stage an intervention, 'kay?
We have a busy weekend since we're celebrating Pk's birthday so we took both took Monday off and I took Tuesday off as well. I had a busy week this past week and I'm still fighting off this infection so I wanted some time to just vegetate.
I am so looking forward to this long weekend. Anybody have any interesting plans?
