What's Going On

I enjoyed the day off yesterday, how about y'all?  Sadly, I had a 7 a.m. class to teach this morning, so I felt like my holiday weekend came to a rude and abrupt ending!  I have to teach tonight at 7 too.  Tuesdays are my long day.

I have something to celebrate today, though...Jennifer is back to work!  After a 3 month absence, I am no longer playing the role of 2 attorneys.  Woo-hoo!

Here's what's been going on the past week or so around here...

I got a new back fence.  It borders our Homeowners Association, so they paid for it.  That was great, but my house backs up to a very busy road.  After witnessing the immediate aftermath of a little white dog being hit by a Prius the previous week, I wasn't taking any chances so I shipped Lola off to Nocona for a couple of days.
Unfortunately, on Saturday, Lola was feeling pretty puny.  I was getting worried about my pup, but she rallied and was a kibble-eating & playing fetch machine the rest of the weekend.

I'm so excited that the weather has cooled off.  No more relentless heat!  Just to show you how hot it has been, I went outside this morning and thought "Gosh it's COLD!  I wonder how cold it is?".  I looked and it was 60 degrees.  It's been so hot that I thought 60 was COLD!  Totally pathetic.

I am happy to report that I am suppose to get my chandelier hung tomorrow.  It's a different (and more expensive) electrician, so I'm hoping they show.  I'm hoping they show for two reasons: (1) I want the dang thing hung finally & (2) He's coming at 7 a.m. so I'm having to get up early for it.

This weekend I made a quick trip to Nordstrom.  I returned and repurchased 3 items that I had purchased on the Anniversary sale because they were now cheaper.  I saved $28!  If you need some new items for Fall, check them out.  They are having a great sale and having free shipping online.

I spent the weekend working on Phase 3 of my Bathroom remodel.  Phase 1 was the mirror project.  Phase 2 was repainting the walls and Phase 3 was painting the cabinets.  No, I'm don't how many phases there are to this project.  I'll post better photos later, but just know this...it took THREE coats of paint! Oh, and don't pay attention to all my junk scattered about.  I don't really clean-up after myself on the mornings I'm running out the door at 6:30.

Finally, I'm totally excited because I just ordered tickets for me and my friend Suzanna to go see...
YEA!

Your bathroom looks awesome, and I'm happy that you found someone else to hang your chandelier! Hopefully they are more reliable.

I bet that Adele concert is going to be AWESOME. I can't wait to hear all about it!
