Sick again and put those clocks forward.........



I have managed to pick up a stomach bug and have been fighting on with it since Wednesday.  How I know it's a stomach bug........well me and the toilet are very close at the moment and I'm off my food.........yep I must be sick!!!!  I did eat a little more on Saturday but everytime I eat anything of substance I end up in the bathroom with the runs......I know TMI!!!  The good news is I have actually lost 5lbs.  Finally!!!!!


We were out and about on Saturday.  Dh bought all the things he needs to get the lawn tractor up and running for the season.  I had bought a coupon booklet at Sears the other month for $15 and immediately saved $18 on the water filter for the fridge.  We saved another $32+ on the things we bought yesterday, so this coupon booklet has more than paid for itself.


We also filled out an application at the local Humane Society about adopting another dog.  I will fill you in on more after we go to visit him, as he is being fostered at a private home.  I don't want to say more, as we had applied for another dog but she was adopted to another family.  She was a bassett hound, this one is an English Bulldog.

It's that time of year over here in Canada and the States, time to put our clocks forward an hour.  I for one hate the clocks going back and forward, it kills me and takes me days to get my body clock changed around.  I am worse than a toddler!!!

Finally, here is Saturday's sunset:

Oh and yes, that is bloody snow...........it should all melt this week.........otherwise I may just end up going crazy!!!!!

Gill,
Hope you are feeling better soon.
I can hardly wait to hear all about your new addition to the family. Fingers crossed all goes well.
I hate putting the clocks ahead it means I have to drive to work in the dark again.

I know just what you are going through with the getting to know your toilet thing. I am feeling better today, but had it just this weekend. Not much fun. I guess it must be going around everywhere. I am in Texas. My three dogs were the only bright spot in the weekend. They seemed to know something was not right so they just hung close to me and we loved on each other a lot. Hope you get to feeling better.
