Oh no! I just discovered another guppy this morning. That makes two left. Which means there will be more soon. No way could I be lucky enough for both to be male. Kat tells me (kiddingly, I think) that guppies are born pregnant. Maybe I’ll be giving away guppies again shortly!
… and Mondays always get me down, isn’t that how the song goes? Well, at least it’s not a Monday! I wish every day was a sunny day and it would wait to rain until it is time to go to sleep. I need sunshine! Blue skies! Oh well, we don’t always get what we need, do we?
The guppies are gone. Well, all but one or two, I hope. I saw one tiny baby swimming around last night. I am going to wait a week or two before I go get any more fishies. If there is only one guppy left, that’s not so bad. Two, well, by the time I know whether they are male or female, it might be too late! I do not want another tank full of guppies. I gave away over 125 guppies and I have only a thirty gallon tank. That was wayyyy tooooo many guppies!
Miss Munchkin’s first day back home went relatively smoothly. I had worried that she might be all tired out or have troubles adjusting back to our rhythms here, but she did just fine. She must be going through a growth spurt, though! Every half hour it was “I Hungree” and she was! Did that girl ever eat! She definitely is taller than she was when she left three weeks ago.
I am trying to decide whether I am good enough at sewing to alter a pair of jeans that I bought last week. Believe it or not, I actually went clothes shopping without a pressing reason to. I bought the most wonderful pair of blue jeans (after trying on 20 different pairs), but they are a tad too long and need to be shortened. They have some stretchiness to them and that causes me to think twice about taking the scissors to them myself. But I hate to pay someone to alter them. But I hate to ruin an expensive pair of jeans. These are Not Your Daughter’s Jeans and they are, hands down, the most expensive pair of pants I have ever bought. But as comfortable as they are, I may very well go back next month (after payday) and get another pair!
Miss Munchkin arrived back home last night. Boy, was Penny glad to see her!
In just three weeks gone, Miss Munchkin seems all grown up. When she left, she was just beginning to talk in full sentences, but you could not always understand all the words. Now she is much clearer, although when she gets excited, the words begin to get garbled again. When she left, she was just beginning potty training. Now she appears to be almost totally potty trained. Grandma sure appreciates that!
It sounds like Miss Munchkin had a great time with Daddy. She came back with a whole suitcase full of new clothes and had to tell us piece by piece who had bought which shirt and which pants. I’m afraid she’s going to find it boring back here with Grandma, as it sounds like she was on the go all the time with Daddy.
It also sounds like Miss Munchkin was able to spend weekends with her Alabama Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Connor and Aunt Bri. I am sure we’ll be hearing more about all the fun she had over the next few days.
So far, things are still going swimmingly with my new computer. I have discovered one small bug, some sort of video issue with the games that came with Vista. Mahjongg is an experience, as some of the pieces appear pixilated and you can see two tiles in the same place, depending upon whether the cursor is hovering over the piece or not. It makes for interesting playing! But I have not noticed any video issues in any other areas, so it may be just an issue with Vista games.
I still have a few guppies left, but hopefully they will be leaving today. And then I will have to decide what fish to add back to the tank, after I spend some time rearranging and cleaning it a bit. I need fish that will get along with Mr. Algae Eater. And preferably something that won’t propagate as rapidly as the guppies! Any suggestions?
