BULLETS

I love the whole bullet idea. I love reading them and I love doing them when you have random thoughts that you want to share. Here are some bullets.

  • Tomorrow marks my 20 month LID..... time is passing so quickly when you see that a lot of my buds with babes are celebrating their 1 year referrals or family/metcha days. I want to thank them for adding to my wait by encouragement and sharing joy with their babes.

  • As is the routine with Mesa and Me. In the mornings when I do not have to work, we gather in the car and head to my favorite coffee drive-thru..... Ahhhhhh, coffee for me, and treat for Mesa. These fine coffee magicians know just how to make my brew and know just how to snuggle Mesa and hand her a treat. Then off we go to the dog park. The area I live in is very dog friendly. I live in an area that I term "DINKs". Duel Income No KIDs. The kids are their indulged pups. One of the puppy parent is a tennis pro at a local tennis club and there is an endless supply of good tennis balls. As is our custom, we arrive with at ball in out CHUCKETT and leave with the same ball. Mesa will not play with any other ball but the one we come with. A real problem when it is stolen by another dog. Today as we left the park, Mesa grabbed her ball. But this time, the abundance of balls got to her and into her mouth she loaded another ball. Like a treasure she pranced back to the car sporting two balls in her mouth.....

  • I'm changing it up in my house. With the onset of Tate's Kingdom, I have had to shift things around designating rooms for other uses. One of the rooms hit with this fate is the down stair guest / catchall room. I am getting rid of a double mattress with frame. I could not find any takers of this extra bed. Instead of designating this mattress to the land fill, I decided to list in on Craig's list as a free item. No sooner did I finish the posting and I got hit with an on slot on calls...... Free is way too tempting for people not to want. I hope that today will be the end of me looking at that mattress hanging out in my driveway.

  • I have decided that I will be hiring someone to do the moulding in Tate's Kingdom, so things are put on hold for a few weeks as I try to find someone. This idea of having someone else do the mouldings is giving me thoughts of having the Sun room (Mesa's room) done at the same time. The temptation is too great to do more when you are actually having someone come in you home to do some work.

  • Finally after two years of damage, I have had my front of my house fixed. With my procrastination and out of sight, out of mind mentality, I have put this off until now. My sweet neighbor, Fong, ran into it. She was new to driving and gunned the gas instead of hitting the breaks causing her to plow into the house. Thankfully no one was hurt except the house and now that is like new.

Congrats to those who have received their referrals.... so sorry and hugs for those who did not and were expecting to.....
