It's really too bad that I'm not a morning person as there are sometimes some very lovely sunrises here in the Rose City. Unless I need to be up for work though, I sleep right through them!
Speaking of being up for work, I'm such a dope that I almost forgot that I signed up to work overtime this coming Saturday to cover for another dispatcher who will be on vacation. Good thing my memory isn't shot completely or I would have been getting a call really early Saturday morning asking where I was!
Also this Saturday, I'm hoping to get together with a blogging friend and her blogging husband at a local eatery for some really good clam chowder in a bread bowl. We had planned on going a couple Saturdays ago but she was recovering from a nasty cold/flu and I wasn't feeling so hot myself.
My ortho doctor's office called yesterday to let me know when the MRI on my back is scheduled for but of course it's when I have to work so I'll be calling them today to get that changed to a different time. Who goes for an MRI on a Friday evening anyway?
I believe I am going to try to extend the time that I will be out in California in May by a couple extra days. I'm currently only going to be there from Saturday afternoon to early Tuesday morning but that doesn't seem like enough time to visit the people I want to visit, see the places I want to see, and eat all the Mexican food I want to eat. After all, Lord only knows if/when I will get back out there again.
I was debating whether or not I should cancel my mini-break to Block Island I have scheduled for June what with the trip to California now happening. Selfishly I don't really want to as I was really looking forward to a few days alone in a bed & breakfast on a beautiful island but I guess it's something I should think about.
I'm pretty sure that Winter did not get the memo that it's time to go now that Spring has arrived being that yesterday felt more like a late January day than a late March day. Granted, there was a beautiful blue sky but the wind was blowing like a banshee and it was cold! When I left work at 11:00 p.m. the sign at Walgreen's read 26 degrees. Brrrr!
Today is going to be a putter around the house and try to get some organizing done kind of day but maybe I'll take the time to bake a pie or a cake; it's been awhile since I've baked anything but a dessert sounds good!
Amanda has been working on a couple new plushie dolls but they're quite different from the ones she has made previously. I'll have to post some pictures soon to let you see.
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday and that it's more Spring-like wherever you may be! If you've got any spare warm weather floating around, feel free to send it my way!
