Updates on this and that

It's been a fun and good couple of weeks. I realized I hadn't really updated my blog in a month. Yikes!! Things have been pretty boring, in a good way. This weekend Erik did a lot around the house, mostly the garage actually. It looks great. He also spent a lot of time getting ready for his hiking trip next week.

Lisey has been a great helper all weekend. She helped Erik in the garage, helped do the grocery shopping and helped peel potatoes and make the sauce for a pot roast. She is great in the kitchen. I even let her quarter the potatoes with the "big girl" knife. I was hovering on that one, believe me. She did fine.

Marc cracks me up. He has gotten such a great sense of humor and I love spending time with him.

I am very convinced that our new kitten is actually a pooka. I could spend hours just watching his antics. His new favorite thing is to hide on the black towels (he blends in) and then pounce me when I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Erik went to the ENT and got some not so great news. He needs to have his sinus surgery again to scrape the polyps and restraighten the septum. AND apparently his uvula is too big and nasal passages too small. So he has to have his tonsils and part of the uvula removed to help him breathe easier and hopefully get rid of the sleep apnea. I feel so bad for him. It's like a two week recovery.

Still no word on a start date for me. I try not to be too anxious about it, but I am seriously bored at work and have run out of things to do. I've moved on to cleaning out my filing cabinet and such. Hopefully the call will come soon...
