Are you all ok?? Did any of you drown out there this past weekend? It really rained a lot here in SLO, considering it rains maybe 5 days out of the WHOLE year. John and I just love it as we really do miss the rain. That is what growing up in Humboldt will do to ya. Unfortunately most of the rain as been in the evenings so we haven't been able to watch it...but it is great to listen to!
On Friday I was REALLY hoping that our power would go out, which it did!!!! AT 4:45pm!!! Can you believe that crap? I guess I can hope that it goes off tomorrow. We didn't loose power here at home all weekend. I think we were pretty lucky. I was ready though...all candles and flashlights were on hand. A few weeks ago we lost power for about a half hour, and I literally stumbled around to find the flashlight. I also received a gigantic bruise on my thigh from the stumbling around.
This weekend was pretty uneventful. I still think I'm unwinding from the madness in December. We had to make some returns at the outlets in Pismo, and I was lucky enough to be the one who benefited from them...a new pair of shoes and some shirts are now in my closet. I feel so bad shopping after Christmas though since I almost went into cardiac arrest when I saw my Visa bill.
Today has been a real productive day and it's actually made the day seem really long! I probably couldn't do it again if I tried. I worked on a freelance website (I'll post the link when it's complete), packaged up some items for the mail, helped make dinner, and just finished working on a treat for Jen. Monday is Jen's birthday, so "HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN!" I hope you like what I have for you.
I already gave her her gift which was a custom necklace from Lisa Leonard. (She's another blogger that I stock.) If you go here, and scroll down until you see 'The Original Necklace' design you will see the exact necklace I got her. Kind of weird that her model necklace had the same exact names as Jen's daughters. But sweet for me since I knew it would look good!
John and I have also been entertaining ourselves this weekend by watching season 2 of The Office. I think that is my favorite season...I mean can you really beat the Christmas party episode? Or the Injury? (Michael AND Dwight both need taming with a squirt bottle...you can't get any classier than that!) This Office drought is really killing us, but watching the old episodes has REALLY helped. I don't stay up late enough to watch the re-runs on TNT, but those of you who do, you better watch them, or Agent Michael Scorn will come to your house and shoot you.
