Not much to chit chat about actually but I am trying to get back into the habit of blogging semi-regularly. Haha!
It’s been pretty quiet on the homefront recently. We have all been busy with work, basement renos (which are NEVER ENDING). Most of the drywall is up now so the basement is nice and toasty for the first time in 19 years that we have been here. Warmer down there than it is upstairs actually. Lol!! We still have a TON of work to do but it seems to be easier now that we don’t need to have 5 layers of clothing on now just to stay warm. The planning of the plumbing is in the works now. The rough plumbing is done but now he’s fiddling with the rest of it so we don’t have to shut the water off for long when the new water heater gets installed and the other nonsense that is sitting waiting to be installed. So for now there is miles of copper pipe to be hooked up and endless trips to the hardware store. Keeps him out of my hair anyway. Ha!!
As for me i’m seriously looking forward to this weekend. Not only is hubby on night shift (haha), but I am going out for dinner on Friday night with the girls to celebrate a birthday and then on Saturday night they are all coming here again for girl’s night which means ugly jammies, appetizers and the cocktail of the night which will be Jack Frost.
I’m usually not a huge fan of “slushy” drinks (I prefer on ice) but it will be fun none the less getting hammered and noshing on food. One of the husbands is the DD so we can just kick back and get silly until the wee hours. We’ve been looking forward to this for six weeks now. There will be a crock pot of meatballs, dips, jalapeno poppers and fresh marinara, stuffed mushrooms, pizza bread, parmesan tortellini poppers and for dessert there will be cake batter cheesecake (because we can’t get together without a cheesecake involved).CAN’T WAIT. 😀
Julz has been busy with work at here part time job, studying for exams (starting this week) and yesterday she had a full mouth of braces installed. Her mouth hurts like a bugger. She’s hungry as hell but it hurts for her to open her mouth so for the next few days she’s sucking back protein shakes and soups through a straw. She has to go back to the orthodontist tomorrow morning as one of her brackets has popped off already. We were home less than a half hour yesterday when she noticed that. Ugh. It will take a few days for her gums to toughen up around the brackets so for now she’s raw and crabby. I remember those days well and all I can do is offer comfort, Advil and soft squishy food that can be sucked through a straw. LOL!!
Now you asked for a recent pic of Cheddar. Well here’s two of the woolly bugger. LOL!
He’s so shaggy but he’s so cute like this. We are putting off shaving him because it’s still pretty cold and he needs something to keep his butt warm.
Here he is on Christmas Day at my mom’s….
All turkey and gravy’d out… (cracks me up every time I look at that shot..)
Well that’s all the news for now.
Hope everyone is having a great week and I will touch base soon!!
