|Whew, very busy day yesterday. I left work at 3 pm, made a
drug store and cell phone place stop to pick up another 90 days worth of
time. I got home with just enough time to walk the dogs before Bob and I
left to head across town. First we stopped at Lowe's to pick up the
necessary items we needed to repair the towel bars in the bathroom.
We then headed on over to Elizabeth's pizza to meet my folks, Frances,
and Al for my belated birthday dinner. Afterwards we all went to Frances'
house for ice cream and cake. While I looked at pictures and souvenirs
from their Thanksgiving trip to Disney World and Epcot, Bob got started on
installing the new Brother printer/fax/copier they bought to replace the
HP one that did not work.
I opened some birthday gifts which included a neat, glow in the dark
Pooh sleep shirt, a Pooh trivet and spoon rest, and a nice blouse for
work. We then had ice cream and cake.
It was after nine by the time we got back home to feed to the dogs and
give them some playtime.
This morning dawned cold and cloudy without the promised overnight
precipitation of more ice and/or snow. This afternoon has turned sunny but
cold with temperatures in the mid-forties and 20 MPH winds. I got a lot
done this morning including almost finishing up the Christmas decorations.
I am taking a break after my lunch to rest and get my mail checked since I
did not have time yesterday and Road Runner was down when we got home last
After I finish up the decorations I need to tackle my office and my
desk, which both look like disaster areas.
I read this
page who got it from Tara.
Type in your full name to learn what your Middle Earth Name is. I tried
mine with both my maiden and married names. Here is what I got for Middle
Earth and Orkish:
Barbara Ellen Fritchman: Middle Earth=Confused Beorning, Orkish-Snikluk the Thug.
Barbara Fritchman Thompson: Middle Earth+Crying Troll, Orkish-Mauburz the Despoiler.
I rather like Snkluk the Thug, don't you? Confused Beorning sounds like
me for sure!
