Home Alone

Since ChellBell is on Spring Break, she and Chris ventured to Misery Missouri to see Chris' Grandma and cousins for a few days. Chris' sister, Marci, made the long road trip with them, along with her puppy, who no doubt was entertainment in the car and at Grandma's house. (Grandma asked if Marci would leave her dog there. Not sure if Grandma thinks it's customary to leave a parting gift, but I'm thinking that dogs are not on the list of appropriate things to give or to ask for.)

So while the house was quiet -- well, not so quiet, because I had the Big Dog and Little Dog with me, barking at every blowing leaf, squirrel, and passing neighbor -- I got a few things done. The major one being that I cleaned out our garage refrigerator, which now tops my list of least-favorite-things-to-do-while-my-family-is-out-of-town. I also got to hang out with my friend Michelle and do a little shoe shopping, Cheesecake Factory eating, and St. Patty's Day party attending. (Thank goodness she's pregnant, so I had someone to help me stick to my decision to give up alcohol for Lent!)

No offense to Michelle, or even the fridge in the garage, but the funnest thing I did during my time at home alone was this:



I can't wait for ChellBell to get home tonight and see it! Eeeks!
