A Few Things
1. Upon changing the layout of the blog, it looks like my replies to your amazing comments have been completely removed. Ugh! Are you kidding me? So if you were like, "Hey lady, what gives?". I promise I am not ignoring you! I have read all of your responses and appreciate the heck out of them! Even if you can't see it.
2. We were so excited about our short trip from Waco to Austin but when we started settling in, we made a sad discovery - our faucet was broken. Like, it was loose from the counter. Well, it would have been no big deal if it was actually loose but it was full on broken. The water would still flow but the unit itself was dangling in the sink. 2 person dish cleaning was born. One person held the faucet and the other person washed. Yep. Fortunately, there was a local handy person near by and got it all sorted out for us the next day. We are now sporting a new faucet and all is back to normal.
3. Our recycling hearts are screaming for joy! Austin recycles! They are so green that they do not bag your groceries - like at all! I ran to the grocery store when we arrived and got a small cart load of things. While I was getting checked out, I was looking around for bags. Hmmm...that's weird. I thought maybe the cashier would do it on his side. I paid, got my receipt and then he muttered something about bags. Nope, no bags. He walked out from behind the cash register and put all of the things back in the cart. He shrugged and helped the next person. I just stared at my cart. Okay. Luckily, Phoebe has a car seat, so I just piled everything into that. I had to make a few trips to the RV but each individual thing all got inside. I remembered the reusable bags today so I didn't look like such a weirdo.
4. Phoebe and I were on a walk last night and as we approached the RV, I saw a creature come out from under the truck. I thought it might be a cat or something, nope - it was a possum. Phoebe wanted to make friends and I wanted to scream. The possum decided to retreat back to the truck and promptly disappeared. I dragged Phoebe back to the RV and ran inside. We didn't go back outside for the rest of the night.
Happy New Year's Eve!
