Let the Construction Begin! :)

I have purchased what I need to put together a nice, large, deep sand box for the girls. The dimensions are going to be 6 ft. x 6 ft. x 2 ft. (LxWxD) though we'll see about the 2 ft , dimension. This also means that I'll need 72 cubic feet of sand to put in it on top of 6 cubic feet of pea gravel. This also means that I'll be relocating 72 cubic feet of packed soil out of my yard. I have a couple of low spots in the yard so I can fill those in, but that will not account for it all. I need to find a neighbor who needs some soil. :)

I have a feeling that I'll need this long weekend in order to complete this project and recover. At least I'll have a nice break in the middle when I go down to Provo to assist Bob in the assembly of her beast! :)

Anyway, that's all the excitement from me. This post was brought to you by the letters R, S, T, L, N, E, and the number 8.

Stupid Trash Man!

What's with the trash guys? The idiot emptied our trash, but didn't empty it! It's not like he has to get out of his truck to pick it up by hand, the thing has this handy claw on the side and that does all the work. I went to put the thing back in it's little hiding place on the side of the house and found that it was still half full!

I'm interested now to see what happens this week. :)

So, Dubby finds it amusing that I've actually used the word alacrity. I'm not sure what to make of that. Believe it or not, folks, but I have a pretty large vocabulary. It comes from all the reading. Speaking of which, I haven't done as much of that recently as I'd like, so I think I'll start reading another book. Probably the next one in the "Stone of Truth" series by Terry Goodkind. Any of you who like fantasy, will enjoy this series. There's also a love story buried in all the coolness, so it'll appeal to lots. :)

Hmmm... Perhaps I should start reviewing some of the books I have to see if I can get some of you to read some of them. This is something I should consider... I could have a posting for AT LEAST every day of the year. It's worth considering... Would you all like to see something like that? Let me know either way. :)

I'm outtie! This post was brought to you by the letters U, D, Q, and the number 4.

Well, It's been more than a week since my last post, so I changed the title of my blog a bit to reflect the alacrity with which I post to the thing. My apologies to all if you've worried that I've passed away, etc. :) That is NOT the case, though it may seem so.

Anyway, I just walked over to the Delta Center, here in Salt Lake City to get free tix to the Circus. We were successful in acquiring the tix, but it's pretty warm outside today. The Delta Center is only a few blocks away, but the sun was beating down on me and I had no shade. I also made the mistake of wearing a dark shirt today. Needless to say, it was pretty "Ugh!" out there today.

I want to send a shout out to all the folks that read my blog regularly, though I don't think that number is all that large. I want to say "Thank You" but that would be too easy, so instead I'll sing a song for you. (insert song of your choice, by the artist of your choice here) There! *bows* I hope you all liked it!

For those of you interested, my WoW character is on the Ysera server and is a member of the Kuhcaw guild. Her name is Amyrylyndyl (yes I'm playing a female character) and she'’s an elf Hunter (Thanks, Thrynn, for the name of her cat :). She has finally made it to level 31 and is (by comments from other members of my guild) cruising! I haven't created any Alts yet as that would mean I have caught up to the rest of my guild (in the 40s) and have time to work on another character. Perhaps any Alt I create will be on another server. We'll see. :)

Time to go! This posting was brought to you by the letters H, O, T, and the number 31.

A.C. ... and Thanks!

I LOVE AIR CONDITIONING! I'm talking about the REAL stuff, not the fake Utah, feeble excuse for AC they seem to love out here. It was installed on Thursday and the house has been at a nice comfy 73 degrees since. :)

Thanks to Cathryn for naming Cat. Keturah is her new name and I've had some comps on it already. You have my thanks! :)

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything for a while, but I've either been busy working, doing odds and ends around the house, caring for everyone, or gaming (WoW and Sidewinder - mostly WoW though). I'm trying to catch up to my friends so I can go on raids with them. I have 11 more levels to go until I'm close enough. Once I catch up, I won't play quite as much, because I won't be playing catch-up... Do you buy that? :)

Karen is still pretty sick. She does lots of hacking and attempts to remove her lungs (by coughing them out) and a good deal of moaning in pain afterwards. I figure she'll get better at some point and move back into the bedroom, but I'm not sure when...

Anyway, I'm going to keep this post short-ish and tell you that it was brought to you by the letters W, S, G, and the number 29.

This post will be short and quick since a storm's on its way and I don't know how long 'til it gets here.

Cathryn, did you get the attempt from today to send the newegg wish list? How does it look to you? Is that in your price range? Comments? :)

Dubby, I'd be happy to assist you with your computer questions. I just sent something that I hope will help you. :)

Karen, get better quickly so you can move back into our room. :)

Everyone, please give me some suggestions for Cat's new name. :)

Hello? Is there anyone there? Have I fallen from favor with my readers? It's either that or my last post wasn't worth commenting on.
