Good day all,
I’ve now had three straight nights of eight hours or better of sleep. All of this running around, packing, and now unpacking is taking its toll.
I’m sitting on the old sofa from home doing this and at the same time looking outside for Itchy. Kyle and I decided that we are just going to open the door and let the dogs run. I was extremely nervous about this, but had to try and see what would happen. Amazingly things have turned out perfectly. Little Licr comes running home after her run around the yard. She cruises the two acres then comes straight home. Itchy on the other hand is out running around our place and a couple of the neighbours too. She does come home though, it takes her a couple of hours, but she does. I was starting to wonder how long I was going to have to stay up and wait for her, when I looked up and there she was. Awe look at that there was Itchy Up on the deck looking in at us wanting in the house. We have such good girls. Some how it seems less scary letting them run here. They have freedom, and they always come racing back to us.
This morning was up with Kyle had a cup of coffee, bs’d a bit and on with my day. I made myself a to go cup of coffee and out the door I went. My first stop was to fill the car at a buck nineteen before they put the price up. Then off to Elnora. Elnora is where I needed to go to sign the paperwork for the transfer of my AADL coverage from the Crowsnest to up here. That was a quick stop. I then headed to my folks place to pick up the dogs. My folks have been baby sitting them since Thursday night.
It is so terrific to only have to drive an hour to get to my folks place. I arrived there chatted with my folks for a bit, then went out to see the dogs. I came back in and helped my mom do some stuff on the computer. My am was happy to get a bunch of stuff done that she had been wanting done for a long time. Being able to do that stuff for her brought me great joy.
I didn’t get back here until just after three. I unloaded a couple more boxes. Kyle was pooped as he had been a very busy bee the whole time I had been gone. The cleaning lady had also dropped by to pick up her second cheque. The fist one was the wrong total. She had to take fifteen percent off the bill after I had looked around the house and. Noticed a few things that I was not impressed with. I had taken pictures and emailed them to her and said that I was not happy. As a matter of fact what I said was that, “for the price I paid I am in no way okay with having to clean after you did.” I did of course clean what she didn’t, but I received the fifteen percent off. Better than a kick in the ass. Kyle gave her the new cheque as I was not here yet.
We went out for a surprisingly good dinner in Three Hills. We have now been at two restaurants up here and we have some damn good food up here.
It is late again. I need to be up and repaired because Telus is coming sometime tomorrow to put up the satellite. We will have TV tomorrow night. It is peaceful around here without it though. Really nice actually. I do have this though so not completely out of the loop. We sit on the sofa, the wood stove is burning. Flames are a crackling, dogs are snoring on the floor, does it get better than this? I don’t think so. Good night, and God Bless.
Love and hugs Fiona:-)
