I was exhausted after getting no sleep Tuesday night and I was literally in bed by 7pm last night. Man do I feel better today!!!

Mom loves having her picture made...that's another thing we have in common!!
Everyone was just so thrilled to have their picture made for my blog. My husband was especially enthusiastic!! He's sitting on the couch with Reiggin and Kathy, not too long after the picture was taken, Reiggin was put to sleep by our rousing conversation!
Last, but not least, Susan and Joe...more willing picture participants!! Joe was trying to look intellectual by posing with the book. However, I think the dopey look kind of ruined the image he was trying to project.
As author of the blog, I am free from the torture of pictures. I get to inflict torture upon others...they love it!!!

1. I woke up with a stiff neck on Monday morning and am still suffering from it this morning.
2. I had an epiphany yesterday...I have turned into my mother!!!! I worry too much, I have a big tush (sorry Mom!), and I have no rhythm.
3. I tried to poison Foggy yesterday. We are almost out of dry dog food, so I gave him an old can of dog food. Well, canned dog food must have an expiration date. Maybe I should have checked that before I gave it to him. I went to get Yana up this morning and I smelled canned dog food. The reason I smelled it was because Foggy threw every bit of it up in his kennel last night. What better way to start off my Friday than cleaning up throw up out of a dog kennel.
Man, I can't wait to see what the weekend holds!!!

We had a good time just catching up. Kathy is due in about 5 weeks and she had her first Lamaze class on Saturday (I think she's getting nervous). Susan is about 18 weeks along and she finds out what she's having on Wednesday. After dinner we just hung out at the house for a bit. It was a bit of a tame night for Susan, but she is pregnant after all!! They hit the road at about 9pm, I was asleep on the couch by 9:30 and in bed by 10pm!!
It was fun and we should get together more often!

I was really excited to see the arches over the garage doors. I thought they came out looking really nice. There was some drama with the builder over the arches and we're still not sure that the height from the ground to the top of the opening will be big enough for the Tahoe. So, there may still be some drama to come. I wish I could get a good picture of the entire front of the house but there is a big construction dumpster right in middle of the front yard!

They also just got back from a trip to Niagara Falls so I got the low down on the trip and checked out the pictures. I'm really glad they took the trip. Now that everyone is out of the house, I hope they continue to take more and more trips. They had some really nice pictures and it seemed like they had a good time.
Talking about the Niagara trip got us talking about other family trips. We couldn't decide if Dad drove the big van to Florida for our Disney trip or if we took the station wagon. Then I was struck by a memory of sitting in traffic in the station wagon in Florida and Susan, my sister, farting and blaming it on the Big Mac she'd just eaten. So, that solved that mystery. Let that serve as a warning...Big Mac's will cause 8 year old girls to fart!!
Mom took pity on me and let me eat a nice home cooked meal. It was much better than the dinner for one I had planned for myself. I left at about 6:30 and traffic was terrible on 77 north. The reason for the delay was my personal favorite...a wreck on the other side of the interstate!!!! UGH!! But because of the delay I did get to hear one of my favorite songs from the 80's, the theme for the TV show Greatest American Hero (look it up)!
It's always good to visit with Mom and Dad...love ya Mom and Dad!!!

Well, I got up this morning and he still hadn't eaten. That seemed pretty strange to me. But, whatever. So, I go to get Yana up from her 12 hour sleep. She is acting weird too. She doesn't want to come out of the garage to go out. Instead, she decides to go sit in her dog house (yes, it's still in the garage)! Fine, I just keep the door to the garage open thinking she'll eventually come out into the house. But, nooo. After I make my breakfast, I have to go drag her out and forcefully put her out of the house.
Then I put Foggy out and of course NOW he wants to eat, but he wants to eat Yana's food. I usually try to feed them separately but with Yana's antics this morning, that didn't happen. So, of course, the next thing I notice, Foggy has Yana pinned against the sliding glass door and is trying to do damage. So, I go out there to keep Foggy away from Yana's food. Well, Foggy must be really hungry (you think??) because he starts whining because he wants her food and he kept trying to come at her food from all angles, like I can't see him?? So, I just put the food in the house and let those two crazy dogs go hungry. I bet Foggy will eat tonight when I get home.
They are just weird sometimes!!!

Well, Ray had called Mike's parents and said he wanted to go to see the house. So, we met them there and showed them around. Ray and Marie are very sweet people. We then went to a fish camp in Statesville for dinner. Mike always speaks very highly of the Sipe family and he has fond memories of his time at the lumber company. We really enjoyed spending time with everyone on Saturday and we really appreciated Ray and Marie showing interest in our house!!
