Just Another Saturday Morning...



I had a good night's sleep last night. Chloe usually wakes me at around 3am to go out and by the time I get back to bed, I can't go to sleep again. Last night she woke me at 1:30am and I had no problem getting back to sleep. She then slept with us until almost 7. I have been really tired the last week or so because of that.


I am getting very frustrated with the gas prices here in our little town. The crude oil price went up this past week about $6 a barrel and immediately our local stations jacked their prices by 20 cents a gallon. Then the crude price dropped a couple of dollars but the stations didn't drop back down. Why is it that the stations don't wait more than about 30 seconds to raise their prices when the crude price increases and wait a week or more to lower them when crude prices drop???? We are located in the southern part of the state and our prices are the highest in the state. Okay, I am off my soap box.


I've been a little lax the last couple of days and haven't posted. I had nothing to say I guess. Or at least nothing of interest happening in my life. I finally saw Australia the other day and I really enjoyed it. Today we are going to see Clint Eastwood's movie Gran Torino. It looks good from the trailer I saw at the movies the other day. The weather was to have been sunny this weekend but that all changed yesterday. Now they say it will be very cold and foggy. Oh boy!! Better get out my light box that I bought. I got one of those lights that is for the winter where the sun isn't out much. I haven't tried it yet and I guess this is the time to do it.

You'll have to let us know how that light box works. I need sunshine badly. The days are slowly getting longer. I'm so looking forward to spring.

My cat, Smudge, has started waking me up at about 4:30am every morning to go outside. By the time I let him out, there is about an hour left for me to sleep before my alarm goes off, and of course, I never fall back asleep. I've been so tired, too!

Hi Kathy!!

Sorry I took so long to blog. I guess I have bloggers block or family block in a way. I hope your feeling more energetic than I have. I have lost all my motivation for anything..It's so depressing! I am hoping the movie was great!

Gosh, it sounds like we're all tired, because I'm in the same boat. All I want to do is nap all day and I never seem to get anything accomplished!

Petrol (gas) prices are sky high here,running about $1.20 a litre
( 1 liter = 0.264 gallon) so we're paying close to $5.00 a gallon right now. :o(
