today's happenings

i had a very pleasant day today. tyler and i had the whole day with no commitments, except taking my car in to get the windshield replaced. so we rolled out of bed in sweats and went to drop it off at 8 this morning, then went home and slept until almost 11, which i haven't done in sooo long and it felt great. it probably would have been longer except tyler was awake, and cannot let me sleep while he is awake.

so we got up, had a leisurely breakfast, and then decided that we would walk to pick up the car. we figured it was about 2-3 miles, and that if we got walking fast it wouldn't be too cold. it was sooooo cold. we almost turned around after the first half mile or so, but we kept on. then we made a turn and the wind was blowing straight at us for about a mile. that was the point when we wanted to die, but we kept on. then we made another turn and it got bearable again, and we had a good talk and made some goals together. we clocked our walk on the way back and it was 3.7 miles. not too bad eh? we were proud of ourselves, although my butt didn't thaw out for about an hour. then we were so tired from our walk that we crawled into bed and watched a movie. well, i watched a movie and tyler slept.

then tonight we stopped by this cat adoption house that we had heard about. they rescue all the cats from the shelter and abusive homes, get them neutered and vaccinated, and then help them get adopted into good homes. oh my, it's like my heaven on earth. it is a house full of hilarious cute cats. i think that i am going to start volunteering there, as they need a lot of help, and i love cats. tyler loved it too even though he's allergic. it's the kind of place were you lean over and a cat uses your back to jump onto another surface. so funny.

anyways, nothing too exciting today, i am just trying to keep up on the blogging. you know, keep the creative juices flowing.

think of the videos you could film while you are volunteering to send to AFV or that stupid animal video show you love@

Whenever I'm someplace that I get that cold outside, I always remind myself that I'm really glad I wasn't a handcart pioneer!
