- Going a couple times a week and on weekends...this week is a big "no show"
- We have been really good about not eating out.
- I have done nothing about this
- I try.
- I do actually know when and what I have to pay every month. I have a spread sheet.
- We function some how.
- I am pretty good. Always late, but always work through lunch. Never late for a client.
- Just wait until March, every weekend on the west side.
- I changed this one a little. Our life is simple, I like that. But everytime Damon says he is looking at a job in Olympia, I get a little excited.

I have been having too much fun with the video option. This video is Damon warming up and then going around the last corner of his race in Vancouver. Having missed the first corner, I was lucky to capture the last one. I must admit I have been bugging the animals by turning them into movie stars. Kitty doesn't seem to mind, but Tarn is unhappy since most attempts have to do with throwing a toy at Tarn and watching the mayhem take place. Of course, this is all for my attempt at Oscar glory so it should be okay.

In honor of Dairy's recovery we celebrated with a trip up to Snow Mountain Ranch. There was nobody there for the second day in a row and Tarn got to go crazy. He even had Damon to beat up on not just me. Damon also a photo of the rare occurance of Tarn and Kitty sharing a couch.
After our hike we had the ability to go for a tandem ride. I tracked down my funniest outfit for the ride. Damon tracked down his. Damon's funny outfit has a purpose. By the end of our ride my funny outfit didn't keep my feet or my a$$ from hurting.
After our hike and the 24 mile bike ride then I read a magazine with Kitty.
And today I did nothing.

"Dairy just ate Iams kitten pate.........and drank a whole bunch of water. He'll be fine KC.......we will leave water in several spots and food too.......he's moving around slowly...........Dad went to Target and got a huge cat food selection.........he'll be so spoiled! We need to fatten him up!"
This is so much better than some of the other emails. I guess he jumped out of bed this morning and returned to life even cleaning himself. Here's the email:
"We took a ghost to bed last night. I just felt he wouldn't make it till morning. At 11:00 he was a ghost......1:00 took a little water......was still a ghost.......at 4:30 AM he jumped off the bed!!!!!!!! He came upstairs and I got him to eat a little tuna and chicken.....used the litter box.....came down and washed himself!!!!! HE WAS A CAT AGAIN!!!!!!!! When we took him to bed he was a light as a feather............and at 4:30 he was "cat weight" again!"
I am so thankful for my Mom and Dairy.

The two men drove off in their El Camino, which was found a short time later about a mile to the west in the Wal-Mart parking lot off East Yakima Avenue. "
You may think this is a joke. But this is actually front page Yakima Herald. Damon called me on my way home from work after his bike ride on the Greenway. I was really excited to hear how his ride was, he was going to hand out McDonald gift certificates to the homeless people that he encounters on his ride. He said it was spooky, not a single homeless person on the Greenway. So I said maybe they were having Valentines parties at the homeless shelters. Do they do that? I like to think they do. And then I remembered, there was a shooting somewhere and they think they hid the gun on the Greenway. That explains it, the cops moved them out or they disappeared into the shanties.
Now to why we have McDonalds gift certificates. My work allocates $17.50 per employee for morale. So my boss asked us what we wanted to do. So we decided on Gift Certificates. Everyone wanted Walmart, but I wanted Safeway because I morally can't support Walmart (unless I need a big giant vat of purple powdered Gatorade - then my morals are for sale).
So my boss comes up with gift certificates splayed out like poker cards.
Which did you want?
Whoops, I got you McDonalds and it had to be two $10 gift cards so you owe me $2.50.
Do you want a check? (I am kidding - I thought she was joking)
Yes, but leave it blank I have to send it to human resources. (Obviously, not joking)
So that is how I paid $2.50 for my morale. My morale must be for sale along with my morals.
