<p>So sleepy. Zoe was up about every 30-40 mins last night. I think she is getting some teeth. Sigh. I have a busy day at work, then not sure what else.</p>

<p>Troll#2 came in last night and brought his little Pippin [rat] for me to foster. TEH KEWT! I still love my guineas, but this guy is SOY smart and funny. I haven't had rats since I was a kid, so I'll have to google info on rat care and how to challenge his brilliant rodent mind. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p>It poured here [about an inch] deep into the night. I was so exhausted, I barely moved. Slept SUPER well last night....finally!</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today won't be spent in the veggie gardens, since they'll be muddy. But I'll have to go out and survey raccoon damage to the sweet corn crop. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>My goals for the day aren't too over the top:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>plod</p>
<p>finish up some minor domestic chores</p>
<p>pay a couple bills</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If it dries up enough, I'll mow our yard this afternoon.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>feed the troll....OMG...he told me he's doing his long run today, and will suck the food right outta the fridge later today, for sure</p>

<p>Good morning!  We looked at a house yesterday that we think we want to make an offer on.  Eep!  We're going to talk to family, so some calculations, and decide for sure this weekend.  It's a bit bigger than we originally said we wanted, but it has all the features we were looking for, and the price is right.</p>

<p>jebba,</p>
<p>EEP! is right....must be teh eskeery to look for new homes. Back in the olden days [1980] when we bought this place, I thought that even $60k was thru the roof! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>meri,</p>
<p>I know about the 'ick' factor. Most of my friends, coworkers, etc think that even guinea pigs are icky rodenty types.</p>
<p>The rat is adorable: white, black, grey patterns....not sewer rat colors at all!</p>
<p>In the early 60s, my first rats were the white [pink-eyed] lab rats that dad brought home from work. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad5.gif" style="width:17px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p> </p>
<p>This has been fantastic.<br>

<p>Morning. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I need a vacation...a true vacation, one of these years.  I have not had one in a couple of years.  Maybe one next year, but we are really planning on going to Mexico in 2012 for our nieces wedding on the beach.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Slept like a rock last night...HJ to the rescue!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Follow up appt this morning for my sleep study.  Been waiting for 2 weeks to hear back on this.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mow the lawn, clean the house, do some laundry, prep for a small party tomorrow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ciao.</p>

<p>Porty--way back in high school I used to raise rats for the high school biology dept.  They were black and white.  Because one teacher couldn't tell a boy rat from a girl rat, we ended up with a lot of inbreeding--not to mention over population!  We traded for a tan rat to mix up the genetic pool a bit.  We ended up with brown rats!  Most were brown and white, but some looked like Norway rats!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>jebba--exciting about the house!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Son1 and I will be headed down to Cinci in just a bit.  We're racing there tomorrow.  Glad that I won't be around when the hound starts to pooping.  He ate four whole slices of pizza.  He ate so much that he couldn't finish the rest.  Mind you, I could only eat one slice, so you can imagine what the 18lb beagle looked like after four!</p>
