1.) I am relieved that I at least talked to my mom and step dad about her cognitive issues.
2.) I am going to eat supermarket Hy-Vee Chinese Food tonight and like it
3.) I realized what a gypsy I have been in my life and have now been in my job 5 years and my house about the same. Its about the longest I have lived anywhere.
4.) The head wants to move to a modern single floor living arrangement, the heart wants to stay in a 154 year old 2 story house that needs work,
5.) Watching 70 year old men play drama queen over part time positions is not a pretty sight.

1) Hockey... even if it isn't my team.
2) I love warm spring weather just after a good rain.
3) I am planting clover in my lawn this weekend to help establish an eco-friendly ballance instead of a monoculture that does not seem to want to do well.
4) Wife is not a planner and finds it annoying that I want to lock down summer child care for the next couple of years.
5) Did you know that it was Lord Stanley's wife, who suggested that they go and see a hockey tame a the Montreal Winter Carnival, but he never played professionally himself. Three of his son's did and he came to the conclusion that the fine sport of ice hockey needs a symbol for which teams from all over Canada could compete. Thus he bought a silver cup that was only 7-inches high and he paid $50 for it. It's a shame the Canadian teams suck today...

1. Rain for the morning. Cloud cover this afternoon. Hope new grass is enjoying the day.
2. Looking forward to weekend and hosting a gathering of friends because a couple who moved away several years ago is coming for a visit.
3. I need to remember to pick up my prescriptions today> I've forgotten twice now.
4. I'm working at the big beer championship judging this Saturday morning. Last year I worked "bourbon barrel and strong ales" category. I got tipsy.
5. I should spend this last hour cleaning up my desk. Maybe...

1) Full week in the new house. Still learning the noises and neighborhood, but am soooo happy to be there.

2) Lots of rain coming this weekend. I'll have to run errands between the raindrops.

3) Trying to convince Hubby to move furniture is almost pointless. Yes, the movers physically relocated it into the house, but that doesn't mean that it can't be moved around within the house.

4) I'm going to rearrange my closet this weekend. I've used it in this configuration for a week, and I know what I want to change. Same thing in the kitchen - need to move the coffee setup area.

5) Definitely not ready for visitors, but my parents want to see the new place.

3. Back yard is recovering with the grass growing.
4. I'm sure my little toe is broken. What can you do?

1) Last weekend I added microclover to my lawn in an attempt to help keep it green longer throughout the year. I noticed this morning that it is spouting.
2) I learned how to convert MP3s into ringtones for my iPhone. Right now my ringtone is Vehicle from Ides of March because I am that awesome.
3) Wife and I are doing mass spring cleaning and I will be selling a ton of things that we don't use. Other stuff will get donated and a few things will end up in the trash.
4) Over the past few months I got out of my health and fitness routine and it shows... however I have to run a Tough Mudder in 6 weeks, so it is time to get back in shape.
5) The weather today is a typical rainy spring day... which I am ok with.

1. Please rain wash the pollen cover away
2. Rainy weekend means I'll change closet from long sleeves to short sleeves
3. Going to look into a Ring doorbell this weekend too
4. Prom is tomorrow and The Girl is going with That Boy
5. It's amazing to me that if a contractor builds something NOT according to plans, they have the balls to try and charge for it being torn out and rebuilt...
