So Mike was gone last night. I spent the night alone, a rarity for me. It wasn't too bad. I stopped by Food Lion and bought a one skillet chicken meal and cooked for myself. I also bought some frozen things for lunch for the rest of the week instead of buying my lunch every day, plus a half gallon of caramel praline crunch ice cream because it was buy one get one free. I took down the tree and put it in the spare room. It's kinda lonely by myself. And boring. There was nothing on tv, so I spent the night surfing channels. I thought I was going to stretch out in bed, but that quickly got nipped in the bud. When I went to the bedroom I found Max already plopped right in the middle of the bed. Minnie was hot on my heels. And Elvis almost always sleeps with me....on my chest if he can help it. That's three. I had a bowl of ice cream in bed with me while I watched a little more tv before nodding off. Of course the dairy product attracted three more. Priscilla climbed up on the foot of the bed. Then Black Kitty and Stripey Cat raced, literally raced, up to ask for some ice cream. I was rude. I didn't share. But no one had any intention of getting out of bed, even as I got up to put my bowl in the sink. So I spent the night sleeping in a bed with two dogs and four cats. How romantic, eh?
My morning was entirely too cold! It was 21 degrees out! (For all you non-Americans that's -6!) I had to wonder who didn't pay the electir or gas bill that it has gotten so cold and is
not refusing to warm up. I went to feed and water the birds before leaving for work to find all their water frozen. The water hose was frozen, too. So I had to carry about nine watering can fulls of hot water from the house to pour over the ice. It took me a while to do that, and I was a little late for work. It was all good, though. I talk about my chickens at work all the time.
Mike called and said my mom came to him in the middle of the night with cough syrup because he was coughing all night. LOL The sick caring for the sick! Don't know when he'll be home. I guess their house is turning into a leper colony! : D I'll call Mike later to find out when he'll be home.
