Week 28- The great purge

For several weeks we have been gathering items from our home which we no longer need or want.  This has been the largest purge since we moved into our home filling the Prius twice!  We even got rid of the old globe bar in our living room.  On our trips to goodwill to drop off the purgings we found a suitable replacement for our old shoe rack.

Week 27- AC repair

Late Sunday night we discovered that our AC was no longer cooling.  We called Grayson out to fix it the next day.  Turns out our condensation drain was clogged.  According to the repair man all we have to do is pour bleach down the drain every couple of months to prevent this from happening again.

Week 24- The great litter box protest of 2013

This week we discovered that in some sort of bogus teenage rebellion Tiger Lilly had decided that she no longer cared to make an effort to go to the litter box to relieve herself.  After taking her to the vet and being told she was just crazy we were sent home to deal with her “Behavioral issues.” Inappropriate elimination the vet called it… We spent the week blocking off windows so she could no longer see the outside cats, adding litter boxes and enzyming everything.

Week 23- Margaritaville Biloxi

This year for Dad’s Birthday/ Fathers day the family went to  Margaritaville in Biloxi.  Dad enjoyed the all you can eat crab and we had a chance to check out Jimmy Buffet’s new casino.  The atmosphere of the casino was fun and laid back and we even had a chance to catch a Jimmy Buffet cover band while were there.  This was Leanne’s first time playing on a slot machine.
