Blogabilities – Week of 08/14/2011

* I went to Costco today and at check-out, the cashier applied a coupon (which I didn’t supply him with) for $2 off one of my items. In fact, I didn’t even know he’d done it until I was already back at work reviewing my receipt. That was really nice of him. So, I give a virtual “thank you” to cashiers who are kind to their customers, even when the customer is oblivious to their kindness.

* I found out this week that a friend of mine and his wife are expecting after an 8 year battle with infertility. I am truly speechless with joy for him and his wife. They have worked so hard for this. With a long, long road ahead of them, every time they cross my mind I pray that the road they’re facing will be smooth and enjoyable. So much I want to say, but … speechless. It really made my week when he shared their news with me!

* On the pet front, all the fish seem healthy for now. The bird is moulting, so she’s just a little bit cranky. The cats? Well, we discovered tonight that one of them has diarrhea with blood. We’re not sure if it’s just a weird thing, like maybe one of them ate something he shouldn’t have and he’ll be OK after a couple days or what. So we’re just observing for now.

* We went to Disneyland on Tuesday night. We got Tony a “Happy Birthday” pin (it was Wednesday) and also a “Happy Anniversary” pin (coming up on Saturday). It was fun, although I totally think the Buzz Lightyear ride is rigged. Otherwise, how to explain the HUGE gap in points?

* No glamorous sunrises to go with my sunrise swims this week. It’s been really foggy in the mornings, which brings the gift of really fresh smelling air and makes the pool feel warmer once I’m in. I continue to revel in my outdoor swims (vs. indoor). *happy sigh*

* A mountain trip is on the agenda for this weekend. Really looking forward to that.

    I was here.

  2. I’m so happy that it’s been quiet and lovely there for you! I’m overjoyed for your friends who are expecting, I can only imagine how their hearts are feeling right now! (and I hope you haven’t had any more problems with neighbors stealing your stuff!! πŸ™‚ )

    • They find out this week if it’s one or two babies, and also hoping for yolk sacs (and maybe heartbeats) this week. Praying soooo hard for them.
      I’m having packages delivered to my PO Box now, instead of home. So annoyed by that!

  3. Have a fantastic weekend!!!!!!!

  4. Wasn’t that a nice surprise from the man at Cistco…A lovely story, my dear.
    I hope you have a wonderful Mountain Weekend…It sounds like a great thing to do during this strange Humid Heat….!
    CONGRATULATIONS to your friends! That is wonderful news!

    • We had a great time in the mountains — so beautiful up there!
      I love it when people are nice and thoughtful, such a rare treat these days it seems.

  5. Happy Birthday to Tony and Happy Anniversary to the two of you! Hope you enjoy your weekend in the hills.

    I agree that ride was rigged. I bet it was logging your points as Tony’s.

    • Thank you!!!

      That ride is totally rigged! hehe I think it weighs points heavier on the side Tony was on. Just my theory, but I totally think that.

      We had a great weekend and I think it was directly contributable to your wishing us a wonderful weekend, so thank you! hehe
