A Little of This, A Little of That

It's time for some updates and some useless info.

--The Youngest posted this on her Facebook status a bit back--HILARIOUS!
 "I figured out why I'm fat!  The shampoo that I use in the shower that runs down my body says "for extra volume and body."  I'm going to start using 'Dawn' dish soap.  It says "dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove.""

--K has been working overtime shifts for the past two (?) weeks.  When he does overtime like this, the days run together and I don't know what is going on. The way this works:  K will work his regular 12 hour shifts and on his days off he works 12 hour shifts--NO days off.  Of course, you can't push your body like that, so he had to take two days off at the beginning of the week because he caught a 'bug.'  And I'm not sure when the overtime will dry up, so he MAY work straight through his week off.

--I'm really wondering if a new person took over the call-center for our police department--the 'police logs' haven't been any fun for far too long.  I KNOW it isn't because we no longer have people rocking the 'crazy' anymore.

--I do believe we may be getting around to having spring show up around here.  I'm seeing bare ground, but only in the places where K moved all of the snow out of our yard.  We really didn't have a bad winter here--almost all of the storms tracked south of us, so we were lucky.

--The Oldest is NOT pregnant.  :D

--Then again, The Youngest isn't pregnant, either.  :(

--Another year has passed and our cat is going to turn 18 in a couple of weeks.  Unbelievable!

--I mentioned ^ that K came down with a bug earlier this week.  Well, he decided I needed to get it, too.  I've been 'under the weather' for the past two days.  Not horribly SICK, just a bad stomach and very, very tired.  Even if he wasn't working the overtime, I don't think I'd be able to do our monthly road trip.

--I have been trying to do a number of projects and have been doing quite well.  Unfortunately, I keep ADDING new projects to do, so I'm not very much better off than I was to begin with.  I have now made 7 hats for The Oldest and her girls, but I still have 3 or 4 more to go.  (I wanted to give them a variety of colors to choose from.)  I still have a couple of things to make for my niece's baby shower, some things to make for another niece's bridal shower, and gifts for The Mother's birthday and Mother's Day.  ACK!!!  It's a good thing I don't mind doing this stuff.

--It really is quite depressing to write this list and find that there isn't anything more interesting going on in my life.  ;D
