Another Week, Another Weekend

Well, I bought a printer. It's an HP officejet all in one. I would have liked to have gotten one that you can lay a sheet of paper down on the glass to make a copy but I wanted a printer that would use the ink I already have and this was the only all in one Walmart had that would do that.

I got my Yanni Voices cds today. Mom got them in the mail yesterday. They are very good cds.

The back bedroom in the house has ants. I sprayed them with bleach water and that killed them. I hope my hair doesn't get speckled because of the mist falling down from the ceiling.

Bad News

I found out that my printer won't work on my laptop because the laptop runs on Vista. HP might have had an upgrade thing available, but with printers so cheap, I'll just buy a new printer. I've been wanting a wireless printer anyway. I sent an email to my mom to see if she wanted my printer to use as a back up in case hers breaks down.

I've been using my laptop as my only computer for a long while now so you can see that the printer wasn't a big priority anyway.

Yay it's the Weekend

I'm glad to be off from work for a couple of days. I made an egg, cheese, potato, sausage casserole thing this morning in my new non-stick ceramic bakeware. The food stuck to the pan. Oh well. It's pretty bakeware. I think I'm getting a cold. You wouldn't believe how many sick people come to work instead of staying home. They walk around with their dirty tissues and rub their grubby hands all over the printers, fax machine and copier.

PBS is airing a Barry Manilow concert this week. Yay! I love Barry.

Great News!

I didn't buy anything today!!! Yay for me! I even found other things to watch on tv instead of QVC. Granted, some of it was footage of the shuttle launch, but I wasn't buying anything.

Fritz was coughing quite a bit more this morning even after getting his pill. So, after waiting a couple of hours to give his pill time to work, I gave him another half of a pill. His cough went away after that. He had some fun today. He talked me into getting my shoes on and going outside with him. He loves it when people go outside with him.

I read the two romance novels I had sitting here waiting to be read. One of them I had actually bought twice because I hadn't read it yet and thought I didn't have it. They weren't fantastic books, but okay.

I've been thinking of things I can make in my Temp-Tations bakeware when I get it. They claim it's non-stick but I don't think so.

Yesterday was worm pill day for Winnie and PJ. For the first time, PJ didn't eat her pill on her own. She kept spitting it out. I had to crush it and coat some chicken breast with it.

Oh What an Expensive Day

That darn QVC has 25 hours of kitchen stuff today. Boy did that hurt my bank account. I bought some of their Temp-Tations line of ceramic bakeware. I was only thinking of getting their 11 piece set, but then I thought I would get their paper towel holder. Then I saw their new product - a dishware set for 4.

I have resisted some of their stuff today. No Kitchenaid mixer. And no rolling Island food cart. And no pig shaped ceramic baking pan.

A Saturday of Nothing

I did virtually nothing today. And it was great. I think the only work I've done is giving Fritz a bath. I took a nap and watched QVC and surfed the web. I will be cleaning my bathtub later. That's where Fritz got his bath.

4 Day Weekend

Yippeee!!!!! I'm off for four days. I went shopping today. I don't know what I'm doing the rest of the time off. It's nice to not have any plans.

Lost an Hour

Well, we lost an hour last night due to daylight savings time. That means I really got up at 4am this morning. I was up before the puppies for once. Usually they are up early and are playing and barking and waking me up early.

I took the puppies to mom and dad's today and then we came home as usual. I did some yard work and some laundry. Washed some dishes. Took a little nap - just dozing in front of the tv.

Winnie and PJ were sleeping on the couch. Winnie woke up and decided she would rather sleep in the family room so she went in there. Later, PJ woke up and missed Winnie. She got a little upset when she couldn't find her. So, I had to show her where Winnie was.

Fritz is still coughing a bit from not getting his pill on time yesterday. I gave him a pill and a half tonight, hoping it will straighten him out some.

Warm Sunny Day

Today was a warm and sunny day. I was outside at 8:30am cleaning out the flower beds and washing my car. Fritz stayed out much of the day and Winnie and PJ went outside for a walk too. I, of course, went with them.

I love warm and sunny days. And my electric bill will like them too.

Wednesday, Fritz went back to the vet and the vet gave him a shot and some water pills to treat the fluid around his heart that is apparently caused by his heart murmur. I forgot to give him his pill this morning and by 2pm he was coughing a bit. So, now I know he can't yet be stretched out to one pill a day. At least the pills are really small and can be hidden inside a glob of ice cream. So far that has been the way Fritz has been getting his pill.

I'm not looking forward to the time change for daylight savings time. I don't like going to work while it's still dark outside. And I work a regular 8am to 4pm schedule. The politicians who thought this up probably don't get out of bed until 8am. They don't know when daylight breaks in the mornings. But at least I have a 4 day weekend coming up and I can't wait for that.

A Long Week

This past week seemed pretty long and the upcoming week is going to seem pretty long as well. Fritz is somewhat better, but at the same time not as better as he could be. He's still coughing some. And he's not wanting to eat. I'm trying to feed him everything I've got. He won't eat people food or catfood. And catfood is his favorite. He did eat some dog food this morning. He has antihistimine pills through Tuesday night so Wednesday evening Dad and I have to take him back to the vet for a check-up.

I made a homemade pizza yesterday and it's very good. I still have some in the freezer. I don't have the same compunction to eat it all in one day like I do those pre-made pizzaa from the grocery stores.

I'm hoping to take the 9th and the 16th off from work this month. I was going to take the 13th and 16th off and have a four day weekend, but the boss scheduled a team meeting for the 13th and I have to be there. So, I'll just have two three day weekends in a row instead.

I checked out the wireless printers at walmart yesterday morning. They have one that just prints for about $50 but then they have one that copies and scans as well as prints for about $90. I haven't bought one yet. I have to budget my cash until I get to the bank again.

As for the Dell mini netbook that QVC has been trying to sell me for a week or two, I checked it out on the Dell website and built my own - when I do that I can get a router and an external cd/dvd drive along with the netbook for the same price QVC is selling theirs for. QVC is probably ofering a better warranty/service program than what I picked out when I built my own, but I think I can get a better deal by going to I haven't ordered one. I'm not interested in spending that kind of money right now. But the blue one is really pretty.
