Would you be mine, could you be mine, won't you be...
(you'd better know how that ends or you need to Google the phrase!)
When the Mr came home, he grabbed an envelope off the front porch and gave it to me. It just had our names on it and we both knew what we thought it was.
Our neighbors, the ones we brought the homemade pie to, wrote us a really sweet thank you note and invited us to a BBQ when the weather warms up. They said it was "so reassuring to know they had such nice neighbors." We're keeping this for sure because besides the fact that I immensely appreciate thank you notes, it says we're nice. The neighbor on the other side thinks we're Satan's brood or something because we nicely asked her one time if she could please refrain from letting her dog bark 24/7 and even offered to help socialize her if it would help (it would attack the door and bark at dust settling much less people walking in front of the house) and she told us we were jealous because our dog was dead and hers was still alive. Ever since then she runs when she sees us, won't wave at us unless her family is there so she doesn't look like an asshat in front of them and will burn rubber if we're leaving at the same time. Yeah, guilt for saying something that cruel rears its head every time she sees us. I'm glad. An apology would be nice but I won't hold my breath.
I thought about skipping the walk because it was about 40 degrees. I asked him if it was cold and he said not really, he didn't need his gloves. Well, 45 seconds into the walk and I broke out my gloves.
It was a chilly walk but I was able to go the longer route with much less pain than the first time I walked a week ago. I'm very grateful for that. Then we came home and did a kick butt strength workout so total, I burned about 650 calories.
Then it was dinner time. Chicken tacos!
The Mr was quite pleased.
Tonight is movie night! We're renting American Hustle and Frozen .
We're coming close to the end of the mattress fiasco, I'm hoping to have an update by Thursday but yesterday got us one step closer to righting a major wrong.
Do you get along with your neighbors? Have you seen either movie and if so, thumbs up or down for you personally?
