I was going through my online photo albums and I started looking at some of the pics I had online. Here's a picture of the three of them sleeping in a basket (they were tiny enough to sleep in a basket!). From left to right: CJ, Milo and Oliver.

Finally we had a day home where we puttered around the house. What a nice feeling! We got a wall fountain up that had been sitting in our garage for months, I repotted two big houseplants that we bought a couple of weeks back, repotted several other plants, cleaned up the front yard, planted a few more things in front, and did laundry. *phew*. I think when your weeks are pretty much gone with work, weekend become so much more cherished. I am just plain exhausted by the end of the work day, though I am going to start trying to get to work earlier and leave earlier, so I can do more stuff around the house now that spring is around and the sun stays up longer. I think my next goal will be to reorganize my closet. Weed-whacking out in the back yard would be a close second.

We also put up our dart board that we bought on sale before christmas. It was so much fun just throwing darts in the evening. The air was nice and cool and the sun was up. It was a lovely day!

Isn't she a doll? She's going to be 3 this October... she's grown up so much since I last saw her in December! This was taken last month on my family's trip to Barcelona.

The Couch Project, Part 2

ARGH! I wrote a whole bunch and lost it (@$!%@&%*&#^@). I'm going to try to recreate what I wrote...

Hmm... I was writing about my couch. That we moved it outside yesterday, in the freakishly hot 90+ degree day in the winter. WTF. It's not supposed to get this hot this time of year. It was record breaking heat!

Anyway, I have no idea what made me decide yesterday was the day to get the couch moved, but we went to Lowe's to pick up some 10 ' x 12' plastic sheeting to wrap up the couch while I contemplate how I'm going to sew up the cover.

After the patio was washed down (it had gotten to be really bad with the winds kicking up the dust in our back yard) and after the patio dried up relatively quickly given the heat, we moved the couch outside. With only one notch added to the house (my fault... I dented the bedroom door a bit), the couch made it outside. My wrapping skills were tested when we started wrapping up the couch with plastic and duct tape. But... we got it done. I need to take a picture of it to post here.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

I have FINALLY watched this movie! I fell asleep halfway through it last night (the super premium Ivory Coast margarita from the E-bar did me in), so we finished watching it tonight. Hilarious! Reminds me of watching the old Mr. Bean series back home in Malaysia :) Yay!

I needed something to write about... the past week or two have been a bit crazy. We get to go back to Disneyland tomorrow... at least we are putting our annual passes to good use.
