There have been quite a few changes since the last post — mainly, the boyfriend’s deployment fell through. I’m somewhat relieved but I know it was something he really felt compelled to do so I’m disappointed for him.

The girls and I are no longer excited about going to Italy; all the kids would rather go back to Gulf Shores! I have until May to make a decision about canceling the trip, but it’ll cost me a pretty penny.

The downstairs AC finally bit the bullet. I’m getting quotes. (First quote $4600-$8200.) The roof needs to be repaired/replaced. I have the insurance dude coming out next week. The back fence is crumbling and with the last storm several panels/posts gave way. I have a guy lined up to take care of that, or should I say I’m in line behind the other fence jobs he has scheduled. No rush. Fingers crossed we don’t have a major appliance failure too!

Pardon the poor picture quality.

It was brought to my attention that the flowerbed border looks like part of the outline of Texas, at least from this angle.

These bizarre things are called “kangaroo paws” or “joey paws”.

Pile of branches (still hasn’t been picked up).

I got one fun project mostly done. I think I said last year (or was it the year before?)  that next year I would work on the flower beds/outdoor projects. So I did most of the flower beds and trimmed trees. Certainly gives me a sense of accomplishment and I’m very happy with the results.

I’ve been very busy at work lately too. Lots of nerdy fun stuff is keeping me occupied. I just had my 20th anniversary with the company on March 1st! I started when I was just a wee girl of course 🙂

The boyfriend and I went to a funeral yesterday. I REALLY hate funerals.
