January 23rd, 2009

Ah, yes! Mark is home. Last night we hung out and made some pretzels! LOL... and that's not code for anything. They turned out pretty good. I asked Mark if he was sure he didn't want to be a cook or some sort of chef. The man is always making food....always! And while I am on this steroid that is bad news... I think I put on 5 pounds in one night due to how much I was eating. Note to self... pack low cal snacks! Luckily I am almost done with this steroid and when I looked at my side, it's almost completely clear. Oooo... I should have done a before and after post of my rash... but then again I am not completely sure any of you would have wanted to see that!

For today, I will be traveling with Mark to a job sight. He has to do some measurements for a pool... should be fun, and cold. I don't mind helping him sometimes with his pool stuff, it's pretty interesting. Plus we get to spend some time together, and after him being away for 3 weeks, and about to be in New Jersey for 3 days, I want to spend a lot of time with him. Now that he's back he has a lot of work to do to gear up for the spring and summer. So he will be away at a Pool Conference for 3 days. Piece of cake, I can handle that!

I'm also hoping that today I can get a minute to spray the garage for fleas! That's right.... you read that correctly! FLEAS! Over last summer, my brother's cats got fleas. Well he never did anything about them in the garage, and when he left he left us with the fleas. So my dad has been dragging his feet about spraying for fleas, and since both my parents smoke and it's been really cold, they have been going into the garage to smoke. Thus bringing in fleas on them, and then those fleas seem to take refuge on Peanut. Yes, I put flea and tick stuff on him year round, but when they live in your home, you have to do more than that.

Let me put it to you this way, before my brother's cats, Peanut NEVER had fleas.... EVER. Those fleas are going down! Is it just me, or is this steroid making me feisty?
