Had to take the boys back to the airport this afternoon—hence the sadness. I will miss them. They added a lot to the house and to my days!!! We didn’t do anything really spectacular but we had fun and they ate something other than Subway and chicken parmigianna for a week! I don’t think their accomodations at the uni are all that great and they have a two burner cooktop, no stove and not much other stuff to use to cook so I tried to feed them some good stuff whilst (lol) they were here.
So the rest of the week I will probably be a little melancholy but I will try to snap out of it and get motivated to get some more things done around here. Today Chris tried to fix the screen door doorknob but did not succeed because he does not have a drill so I think that may be one for the landlord to do. We bought what we thought would work after going to Bunnings and having a most non-helpful sales guy help us—I think Americans must scare him or something the way he acted!!!
Today has been a very rare overcast day and it is pretty humid out so it is not the most perfect day but I did get a decent walk in this morning—oh yea—I was walking and these people had 2 large dogs who were playing in the water. Once they saw me they made a beeline for me and about knocked me down. I must say my heart was beating a bit faster there for a bit because even though they looked like they just wanted to play you never know and they were big enough to take me out—the owners finally got them on leashes but not until I had been properly rammed into numerous times and jumped on with scratches to prove it. I must admit when I saw them coming at me full tilt I was a tad worried since they both looked as if they had some pit bull in them if not all pit bull and while I am not usually scared of dogs when they are coming running at me and there is no where to go and I don’t know them….you get the picture. But all ended well and I am here to write about it so that is all that matters!
Will post more exciting news later …when it happens. Still no frog update….I am using the other bathroom where we have yet to see one….
