One More Day

Well, it's hump day again but it's also a work "Thursday" because I am off on Friday in honor of the wonderful 4th of July holiday weekend!

Last week at work we had a auction of decorated bird houses. I bid on one I thought was kind of cute, but was out-bid. However, yesterday I got a email from the lady in charge saying that the person who out-bid me changed her mind and did I still want it? I did; and here it is:

It says "casino" and the O is the door to the bird house. Considering we like to occasionally go to the local casinos I thought it was appropriate.

Last Thursday night my dads girlfriend called to say she was calling emergency and having my dad taken to the hospital because he was lightheaded and nauseated and there was blood in his stool. Rich and I and my brothers met them there at the hospital. Anyway, after they took blood and did a CT scan they determined that he had ulcerative colitis, probably caused by the antibiotics he was taking for some dental work! Jeese! He's much better now and they let him go home yesterday.

We don't really have any plans for this weekend. Chris and Marissa are going up north to Charlevoix and staying at her grandmothers house. They have the house to themselves and invited us to come up there, but I don't think we'll go. It's a 4 1/2 hour drive from our house and we would only stay one night. That's a lot of driving. My brother is having a BBQ on Saturday. We will probably just go to that and chill for the rest of the weekend!

One of my very favorite bloggers, Robyn of Bitchypoo lost one of her cats yesterday. He got out of the yard they keep their cats in and a dog or something got him. I feel so bad for her. We share a love of cats. She has about 10 of them and she fosters kittens too. If you can, go visit her and leave a comment. If you are so inclined, she has information where you can make a donation to Challenger House, a shelter she volunteers for.

I think I'll give my kitties a extra hug tonight!
