Friday: not much going on. Don’t remember what we did for dinner. Hmm. I think we gave the cats their doses of Advantage.
Saturday: Emptied out the trunk of the car, which previously contained 5 12-packs of pepsi, bag of something from Walgreen’s, laptop for my mom, 2 pillows, and empty bottle which previously held pre-diluted radiator fluid. The trunk now contains only 3 sheet sets from Bed Bath and Beyond, a trivet or something, and a video card. We also managed to get most of the crap off the balcony (mostly leaves and dirt, but also a rug, some chicken wire, screws, remains of the window I pushed out to install the AC, and a couple other things I can’t remember.
Also went to the pet store to get flea spray for the house and a couple other things I’m sure we needed but can’t quite remember now. We didn’t actually spray the carpets but we will do so soon.
Sunday: I slept in and forgot we were supposed to go see misty_shadows. We hopped in the car and got to her place like 3 hours late. We took the exercise bike off her hands and she helped us transport it too. Wow! Anyway she and the unicorn joined us for late lunch/early dinner. Misty_shadows liked my asparagus-and-bell-pepper pickles and traveller_blues showed us Chef Tako (see previous entry).
I worked on the vacation plans, now it seems more likely we will go on vacation August 4 and not August 25 like I had told everyone at work. We are planning to go to Vegas and hopefully take a couple friends with us. Does anyone have comments for hotels they liked or didn’t like in Vegas? Currently we are thinking about Luxor (unique, a little fancy) or Excalibur, Mandalay Bay, Aladdin, Hilton (not fancy but reliable), but it’s all pretty open-ended. Comments welcome if you have any faves or warnings :)
