When NCLM started, I thought it would be crazy easy - after all, I already left more than five comments a day - but somehow I still feel like I've run a marathon. Too bad it doesn't burn calories. However, as a wonderful bonus, I've added many new friends that I read now because they came over and left a comment. Yay us!
Nothing much happening over here in my world. My big sis (once again, may I make a pitch - anyone know cool single lesbians in Se@ttle? My sister is very pretty, smart, funny, and makes yummy cupcakes...) was in town for work so I picked her up last night and we went up to the parentals for dinner. They were very happy to see her and we had a nice dinner. It seemed kind of funny to be eating salmon in the Midwest when she had just come from the Pac NW though.
My mother always insists on giving garden tours so we went around. I get one once a week. Seriously. Some new things bloom, but mostly it's the same stuff that was there the week before. But this week we hit my favorite part of summer - the raspberries are ready! I need to go up this weekend with some big containers so I can fill up on red and black raspberries. So spoiled, I know.
After we had dinner, my sister and I went to watch SYTYCD with my boys M and B, who had just gotten a dog. M and B are crazy for their new dog. She's an overweight m*niature p*ncher and she is very sweet. I'll be bringing the Charlie over to meet her soon. It was a great evening - M, B, their straight neighbor (who we have converted! ...to the dancing. It's very cute. He and my sister got to crush on the girls together), another friend H, my sister (blogging as we watched), and then a neighbor and his two kids stopped by. It was madness and quite fun.
(For those of you who watch - last night was hard! The last two dances were awesome and I had to vote for them, but the people I love were only so so! I am developing serious love for Mark though. Who will be in the bottom three tonight?! Who will go home?! Duhn duhn duuuuuuuuuuuuh!)
Tomorrow I have my pap. Hopefully my period goes the hell away. I generally have two days of really heavy flow and then the lightest flow ever for another two days. Today's the last of the light days. Since my insurance goes kaput on Tuesday, I really need to get this done though. So hopefully a possible bit of residual blood won't cause problems.
I still haven't done my paperwork, but it's been a busy week. I'll finish it this weekend or ship it off to all the crazy (I love you!) people who commented to say they love paperwork. Kara, you can come do paperwork and dishes ANY TIME.
