am I awake? I have been awake since 8:00 because some guy from the house insurance place had to come and take pictures of our interior this morning. probably would have made sense to do this before all our stuff was in here, but what do I know? but yeah, I woke up at 8:00 on a Saturday morning so that a guy could snap about six pictures and then leave. it seriously took about five minutes. if they had asked, I could have done the same thing myself and sent them the pictures. goodness.
while we were waiting for the guy to show up, I was feeding a squirrel out on the side porch. I sprinkled some peanuts out there and he came running. I was standing right inside the screen door, but he didn't run away. he looked right at me. I even brought Morgaine over, but that didn't deter him either. my goal: hand feed the squirrels by the end of the summer. I don't think this will be a very difficult thing to accomplish.
last night I found a surprise Smokey Bones coupon in my email ($10 off $20 or more), so we went there for dinner. the meager amount we actually had to pay gave us points towards our rewards card, so now we had another $20 credit. hooray for Smokey Bones!
we also bought a stereo for the kitchen. now I can enjoy washing dishes, as I did last night. I dunno why having music makes such a difference, but it totally does.
we're gonna go to IHOP with Kylie and Mike for brunch, which will be nice. we are also going to go to Reading China and Glass. oh, and groceries, but those aren't much fun.
and today is my mum's birthday - happy birthday, Mumma! <3
