1…. I discovered that an old friend of mine was reading this site and I was thrilled when she decided to contact me. Hi Lisa!
2…. I was also happy that we seem to still be on the same wavelength, and that there are some similarities in what is going on in each of our lives right now.
3…. Lisa contacting me, caused me to get in touch with another friend that I haven’t spoken with for a few months. So it’s been an “old friends” sort of week.
4…. Our new boarder moved in on Saturday, or rather we picked her up from the home that she’d been staying in and helped her move in.
5…. Her former “Homestay Parents” told us she was very demanding and that she was a “princess”. So Chris promptly nicknamed her princess after she’d been here for a few hours.
6…. It turns out that our new boarder is a little demanding but I think we can handle it. She kind of follows me around the house when she comes home from school. However she does offer to help with dinner and sometimes clears the dishes off the table when we’ve finished eating and I do appreciate her doing this occasionally.
7…. The boarder only made me mad on Sunday. We were supposed to be going to Chris sisters when he got off work late Sunday afternoon and we’d told our boarder about our little trip. She said that she would be going out and meeting with friends at a Jazz festival. I asked her if she’d be eating out and she said yes. So great- no one would be home for dinner since we’d all be out. Sunday arrived and she went out to meet some friends in the afternoon but not before informing me that she wanted dinner at 5 pm before she was going to go out with her friends for the evening. Huh? We won’t be home at 5? I ended up making her a dinner and then Chris and I left to go to Waterloo. That will not happen again. So far that’s been the only incident that upset me. Everything else has been pretty good.
8…. Sunday was Chris’ nieces’ first communion. We couldn’t make the ceremony but we showed up at his sisters for the party in the evening.
9…. The party ended up being in and around the hot tub! Unfortunately Chris had forgotten to remind me to bring a bathing suit so I didn’t go in.
10…. Chris did though and he pretty much spent the whole evening soaking in the hot tub. Now he wants us to get one. hmmm where in our tiny backyard shall we put it?
11…. Actually I do have an idea on where we might put a hot tub if we ever got one. We have an enclosed back porch (Florida Room) and it has a very large storage area underneath it. My thoughts are that we should dig down into the cement storage area and sink a hot tub partially under the Florida room. If we dug deep enough we could even put in an entrance to the basement. This would be great in the winter as we could get right into the tub by entering through the basement rather than trudging around the backyard in the snow. I think I like this idea.
12…. The rest of the week has been spent working on my two new sites and moving this one over to it’s brand new domain.
13…. Chris saw the sleep doctor today to get the results of his sleep study. Just as I thought he has sleep apnea. Severe sleep apnea according to the doctor. Now he might need to wear one of those special breath masks when he sleeps, or have some surgery on his throat and sinus’ to see if it helps. We’ll see what happens. Last Thursday I had my appt with the sleep study doctor and found out that I have skipped heart beats when I’m sleeping. So I guess the two of us have some sleep problems after all.
