Well, our heat is finally on. For the past few weeks I've been trying to keep the windows open and use as less energy as we can. No A/C, no heat. And I would have to say we were pretty successful. But when it gets uncomfortable to get out of bed in the morning and when Lily was just laying there shaking in her sweater, I knew it was time. This weekend should be decent, so more than likely it won't kick on until the evening hours, but next week it's supposed to be in the 50's, so I'm sure it will be on. Ah, it was nice to get out of bed and walk downstairs in a warm house, with the sun shining in the windows. Refreshing. And today's finally the day. We're going to go to CP. It should be perfect....at least that's what I'm hoping for. Jeans, a sweatshirt, and maybe even a hat. No huge crowds either. Yes, that's the way I like it. I'm kind of nervous about the evening hours though. I don't want to get freaked out too much by roaming zombies. Believe it or not I've never been in a haunted house. I think I'd be able to handle it, but I'm kind of jumpy when it comes to things jumping out at me. You just never know where my hands will go...probably in someone's face or something...not good. Hey, when I was a kid I couldn't even play hide and seek. I hated it. Too much anxiety, I'd just pee my pants. Not a good thing. To this day I won't play it for that reason. Yes, we all know that I'm crazy. We may be going to Birmingham tomorrow to this arts, crafts, harvesty type of thing. Mom heard about it and brought it up. Sounds like fun to me. David won't be going though due to football and Sunday being his "lazy day" of the week. The Twins lost last night so that allows the Vikes to play tomorrow instead of monday, which he's happy about. Then of course we're having our weekly family meal. Chili dogs and Brats on the grill. Yum. Ya'll have a great weekend!
