she had to get an infected oil gland excised from her back so instead of the "cone of shame" which would have totally freaked her out the vet said to put a t-shirt on her
I think she secretly likes the shirt & she wears the same size as sheena :)


I know you don't want me posting stuff to your wall on facebook...

February 20th, SNOW DAY # 4

Yes I received a wonderful text at 5:19 am this morning "NMU is closed today 2/20/13 due to inclement weather. A decision on evening classes will be made by 2pm today".

HOT DAMN i love to receive these text messages. I had some ambition today...

i woke aubri up to tell her school was cancelled and she crawled into bed with lola & I.
when she woke up she placed an order for pancakes
 sheena had lola outside while she was shoveling and her little webbed paws were packed with snow when she came back in

 i finished my quilt for a grad present for this spring, i would much rather be ahead of things than rushing at the last minute.

  • returned some things to Cattron's
  • put a new zipper in Steven's jacket
  • picked up Subway for dinner
  • balanced gram's checkbook
  • finished laundry
  • balanced my own checkbook
  • watched some TV
  • cleaned the kitchen
  • shoveled
  • drank a huge diet pepsi (steven ran for gas last night and i begged for one for my snow day that i was gonna have :)
great day to be a wildcat today and for once my 3 college kids agree with me :)

Feb 19, NMU closes at 1pm

not a whole snow day but i'll take a 1/2 day. Here's what i did:

  • got home about 1:30 pm
  • shoveled
  • cleaned up the kitchen
  • laid on the couch and took a 1 hr nap
  • worked on my quilt for a little
  • did some laundry
  • ate some amazing pizza from Pasqualis
  • laid on the couch some more
  • shoveled some more
  • ORDERED "THE" PROM DRESS for Miss Aubri !
  • went to bed about 9:30 in anticipation of a snow day tomorrow 
i had no ambition to use this snow day to the fullest, i just wanted to be lazy

aubri and her slick ride

well look who i pulled up along side driving to mqt
she did not think i was funny when i took her picture 


i am 43, big deal, i don't feel any different...

went to the meat raffle, Kathy won and let me pick so i picked a pack with 17 pork steaks. we grilled some up and froze some, here's a photo... they were great!

i got some great presents: a pillow that stays cool all night, a womans bathroom reader book, a new water bottle, new travel coffee mug, cookie butter (like peanut butter but made from cookies), a yooper hoody, scratch off lotto tickets, cash, key lime waters, zero candy bars and some cards! nice low key birthday, just the way i like it!

February 5th, 2013

I feel like i need to write this memory down so i don't forget it. Last night my daughter & i REALLY got along. We sat next to each other on the couch, talked about things (last back to school shopping trip since she will be a senior next year), looked at Pinterest together and even laughed. Since we are both very much alike, she will say she is nothing like me, we have had our battles. I really want to cherish this memory of us both being civil to each other instead of   to each other
