Well, I made it through another week. I'm so glad it's Friday. I get to leave work early today so I can pick up Mum and Dad at the airport so that's making today even better. I just feel bad that Mum and Dad will be coming home from sunny Florida to 9 degree weather and a snow storm tonight that will go into the mid day tomorrow. Well, their flight should be OK since they'll be arriving here at 3:00pm.

I'm feeling a better today. I went out to lunch with L yesterday and then met up for a beer after work with her too. We had fun and she always makes me laugh (though sometimes I don't think she means to ;) ). Anyway, thanks L for cheering me up. I had a good chat with my bff, T, last night too so that helped a lot too. T, you're the best, as always. ((Hugs))

I'm going to go see the acupuncturist tomorrow so hopefully she'll be able to help me/us. At the very least, I'm sure she'll be able to help with the stress of it all.

We went to see those houses the other night. I really like one of them but the location was a bit iffy. The other one that was such a "deal" was a dud. It had tons of room and a good layout, but the nearby new commuter rail and it's associated construction cracked the foundation and it would be waaaayyy too expensive to fix so we had to let that one go. Oh, well, a few others have popped up so at least the market is opening up.

Oh, I put the new pillow covers on the living room toss pillows last night. They look really good. I'll have to take a pic and show you. I also did some MacGyvering and created a console for our dining room to display family photos on. We had these two bar stools that the previous tenants left behind so I pushed them together and then laid the two leaves for the kitchen table on top (since we never use them) and voila! A console. It looks pretty cool. I got a new tablecloth to drape over it so I need to do that over the weekend. I've been using one I had temporarily to get the idea and think this new one will look better. I also got a neat acrylic lamp at Target to put on it. It looks really nice since the frames are all silver color. I post a pic of that too once I change over the tablecloths.

On my trip to Target, I also picked up a Shark steam mop. I know, things are really exciting at our house these days. LOL. Anyway, I've heard a lot of good reviews about it and thought it would be worth at try since Michael's work boots tend to track the gunk o'the day into the kitchen and the fact that we have an off white floor so it really tends to show a mess. Michael swept up the kitchen the other night so depending on when I get back from picking Mum and Dad up, I'll be a steam mopping queen this afternoon. OMG, I'm so lame.

S wants to play beer pong tonight. I just love having neighbors like this. :) It should be fun and luckily we'll only have to go next door.

Well, I gotta get some work done before I leave today so I'd better get to it. TTYL!
