03/08/2013: Blizzard!    Saturday, March 9, 2013

Well, this was an absolutely crazy week! I always take Monday and Tuesday off to be with Mr. Virgo, but I usually get right back on here bright and early Wednesday morning. When I "quit" my job in December, I actually stayed on to do the clinical research, which is very part time. Wednesday was my day to go in and see patients so it was a 12 hour day. Thursday morning I took the Toyota in to have the tires changed. There was a shimmy in the front end that needed attention. The mechanic called me to say it needed new struts, shocks, brakes, oil change, and tires.

2/4/2013: Fun with Mr. Virgo!    Monday, February 4, 2013

I had a great visit in Denver with my daughter. We hit a couple of ARC Thrift Stores and picked up a few things. My biggest find was a 1936 book on opera with some really great, dramatic pictures that I can use in my jewelry. I also bought some really cool old dishes to make some bird feeders. I also found an old aluminum cake cover. I always have to use plastic wrap when I make Mr. Virgo a cake and this is funky enough to fit in with my semi-retro kitchen. I say semi-retro because my decorations and accessories are all the large fruit print of the '40's.

1/28/2013: Snow Day!    Monday, January 28, 2013

I love snow days! They are made even better when I don't have to go out in it. One of the pleasures of working from home is having two days off with Mr. Virgo. What a great guy! For those of you who don't know, I met him on match.com. I had been single for several years and was finally ready to put myself back out there. But I had been married for 20 years when my ex and I split up so I had no idea how to be in a relationship again. It was intimidating to think of having to go through the whole "get to know you" process all over again.
