Planning our vacation for next year, we realized we had enough frequent flier miles for one free ticket and one reduced ticket. Went to book them a couple days later and - of course! - the requirements have gone up. A lot. Sigh.
Walker gave in and fired up the furnace this morning. Denial is over and, at our house, winter has officially arrived.
On the advice of blogger friend Taryterre, I got the electric heating pad out for Ernie, so we wouldn't have to keep heating up her rice bag in the microwave. That didn't go so well. She sits next to it and howls. Rice bag it is. My mom made her a bigger one, and she curls up and sleeps for hours when we heat it up for her. Heating pad went back into the linen closet, and we are back jumping to attention when Ernie needs a reheat. Ah, well - it was a good thought.
On the advice of blogger friend Shelley, I tried a new brand of fish oil - Norwegian Gold - and - SCORE! They don't smell like fish and I don't end up with a nasty fish taste for the rest of the day. I just may get my cholesterol down yet.
I took the night off work today, just because. Walker is off, too, which is his normal schedule. Our big plans for the day? Run some errands, shop for a new snow thrower, and put plastic over the inside of our windows. Aren't we a couple of crazy fools in love, LOL?
