My fingers are freezing

So this post is going to be short.

Our heater is broken.  At least, I think it’s broken, because when it comes on, it doesn’t blow warm air.  And since heaters should blow warm air when turned on, that was my first clue that its not working.  And I refuse to call the emergency heater-fixing man in.  Because he is bound to cost a fortune, and you all know I am much too cheap to pay for that.  I mean, it’s supposed to be spring here, right?  So you wouldn’t think I’d even need to have much heat.  But no, it was actually SNOWING yesterday, and today has only been slightly warmer.

It’s a balmy 43 degrees up in here.  Spring!  I miss you!  Please come back soon!

Jason was supposed to brew today, but declined after last night’s performance at Mike’s April Birthday party.  We were there till 1:30 am!  Which kind of proves that I am not really old enough to get gray hair yet.  You read that college kids?  I am still young enough to party with the best of them!  And so is Jason!  So there!

The sun came out for a minute today, and heated the air outside to a temperature that is higher than the one inside the house, so we took Barley dogg to the dog park.  He is a muddy, sandy, wet mess.  But he had a great time.  He even braved sticking his paws in the Mississippi… but there was no way he was going swimming like the labs and retrievers.  He opted to stay on shore and watch.  But then wrestled with the wet dogs, and rolled in the mud (of course!  why would he opt to stay clean?).  So we’re off to bathe the doggy now.  Which is especially appealing because we actually have a space heater in the bathroom…

    Grey Hair does not prevent you from staying out ’til 1:30am.
    I stayed out last weekend until 1:30am.

    I think I did that twice last week…. But my memory is in need of a jog, I think I had a pretty good time, I am sure that the conversation was really good…. and at advanced age (read: grey hair) recovery is still taking place. I don’t think I want to ever do that again!
    Remember kids…. this really should be left to the trained professionals. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

    […] and was as giggly as a teenage girl. Until I passed out on the couch at 9:30. I formally retract last weekend’s “I am cool” statement. Barley loves Tinen, though, and was quite happy to have a chance to cuddle with […]
