The strange world of a Southern wife and her Canadian husband.

So I left work yesterday around 3:30 because that's when the air repair company called and told me there was a tech in my area and they'd be there in the next 30-45 mins. So I rush home and take the dogs out and rush back in and make sure the air conditioner is off (so it doesn't freeze) and wait...and wait...and wait...and wait. An hour and a half after they called the nice repair man knocked on my door, and about $350 and an hour later we finally have air! It got up to 85 in my normally kept at 68 due to DH's cigar's, poor pups were panting their lil hearts out laying by the screen door because we had a slight breeze going due to the opened door and the overhead fan. I did think I was going to have to put my baby Pixie in an ice bath to cool her down...she's a Shih-tzu/Maltese mix and she DOES NOT like heat. Finally she started to cool down and my lil man Puck (mini rat terrier) cooled down and I made spaghetti and meatballs for my Scilian DH. Tonight I am going to dinner with my wonderful Alpha Phi sisters that are in the area...we try to do this once a month or so and meet around Northlake Mall area because it tends to be in the middle of where everyone is.

So sleepy...I want another stay-cation where I can do nothing but sleep for a week.

Air's out!

So the DH and I get home from 2 of our closest friends and the air is out...thankfully it must have gone out after the sun went down, but first day back to work after my stay-cation and I have to leave early to meet with the repair man to fix our air conditioner!

DH and I are continuing our house search this weekend with a lovely 1.5 story home in Indian Land, SC

My Flowers

Well I'm normally not a green thumb person, but I thought I would give it another I planted a bunch of wild flowers, some forget-me-nots, dahlias, ivy, hosta, and basil.

Well they are actually growing and I can't wait for a a yard to do more planting than just pots on the balcony.

Happy 9 Months

Well DH and I have been married exactly 9 months. I'm sure most people don't make a big deal out of monthly anniversaries but DH and I do. We think that each month we are together is a celebration...not that we dont't expect to be together, but that we blessed with each other. Tonight DH is taking me to Sullivan's Steakhouse to celebrate. . I am excited.

Tomorrow DH has to work while my mom and I go House Hunting Day #2. We are looking at homes that are near my parents. I will post pictures tomorrow.

Happy Friday!
