Possibly Expanding into another Blog
So I've been flirting with the idea of doing a blog solely on genealogy stuff. If nothing else, then I wouldn't have to bore you with details of family history searching, etc. and you can have the option of also reading that blog instead of wading through stuff you might not want to read to get to the other (good) stuff!
This week has been quieter than last - in relation to having to be places 3-4 evenings a week and such. Sad note, the family that I pet-sit for (a dog and a cat) - and are great friends with - called me on Thursday to alert me that the dog has cancer. I won't get to pet-sit for him now as he'll need basically round the clock care. So they'll get someone to actually "live-in" when they have to be out of town. I will go visit from time to time as I'm quite fond of the guy (he's a Brittany Spaniel) and will really miss him when he's gone.
The local video store is going out of business so they are selling all of their DVD's and games. I tihnk they sent all the "new releases" from the last few weeks to the parent company to be dispersed among stores that aren't closing as none of them were there. Picked up a boat load of videos and got 2 new PS2 games for under $20 each. Sure, they're previously played games but that's a lot better than the normal $40-$60 price tag for new. First grader doesn't know the difference between "previously viewed" and "brand new" anyway. As long as he can play it - it doesn't matter. Alas, the one movie that I REALLY wanted to buy if they still had it was gone. Could someone please get me "Casablanca"? It has been my favorite movie for eons and no matter how many times I watch it on PBS (no interruptions and they do play a lot of old, Bogie movies - and hinted about "sure would be nice to have it" - no one has ever given me one. Hey kids - Mother's day is coming up! (how's that for a not so subtle hint!) There's also a 4 DVD set of Bogie & Bacall movies - I saw them once at Virgin Records & Movies in the GM mall. Now I'll probably end up with 4 of the same DVD's! ha ha! (which translates into - none at all because they'll all think - I thought you'd get it for her so I didn't.)
My irises have bloomed - I need to take pictures to post here. They are very pretty. I still have one poor little lonely rose on my rose bush out back.
What are you doing this weekend?
