May 18, 2008
Great to have you join me again! How's your weekend been?

It was another night of very little sleep for me. Between Gary's snoring and tossing all over the bed, I was unable to get a good night's sleep until after he woke up at 5am this morning. The weather was very overcast and humid with rain starting later in the day so it made a great day to sleep in bed all by myself.

My friend, Patrick, came over this afternoon and took me to the grocery store up the street to stock up on supplies for the week. I always need fruit including bananas, watermelon, grapes and strawberries along with peppers, potatoes, onions, carrots and mushrooms. Publix was packed of course with it being Sunday so shopping took forever since the aisles aren't wide enough for more than 2 carts at a time. Prices of food seem to rise every time I go shopping now. I don't see how people with children can afford to feed themselves. Patrick and I ran into a couple of friends and spoke briefly before leaving. Patrick needed to get home because he had several people coming over to buy some stuff he was getting rid of and he recently sold their hot tub.

Dinner ended up being a frozen pizza since it was raining outside. I had planned on doing steaks or pork chops on the grill but no go with the weather. Not much on television on Sunday except for Desperate Housewives so I spent time playing with the dogs during the afternoon. Harley hates thunder so she enjoys being babied when there's a storm like there was today. Harley will literally curl up into a ball against my side when the thunder and lightning are bad and she refuses to go outside during a storm.
