Happy Spring!
It's the first day of spring - yay! We had a chilly but sunny day to celebrate it.

So, Today I:

  • Got caught up on my grading (except for the physics test which they took today - it's multiple guess so I should be able to get that done this weekend).

  • Talked with Covington Savings & Loan (my bank) about refinancing my mortgage (I gave my current mortgage company first dibs, but I haven't received word back from them in a week - guess they don't want me to stay with them). 4.5% should be do-able and he suggested I check back each week while things in Washington are brewing - it might go down even more.

  • Went to Applebee's with a few coworkers and had a nice hour & a half chatting with them.

  • Looked at netbooks at Staples - I still might get myself an Aspire One if I could just find a 6-cell Linux model, pref w/ SSD.

  • Picked up some stuff at Walmart - including the inexpensive silica cat litter I was beginning to suspect I'd dreamed rather than purchased before. (Under $5 for 4lb - only thing cheaper I've seen is sold by Trader Joe's - and they're MILES away.)

  • Had an ice cream cone from Cold Stone Creamery. Yum!

The new season is looking to be a good 'un!

I've never eaten at Applebees, I've been looking for an excuse to go.

It looks like spring here but doesn't feel like it because there is a wind chill.

If Applebees ever offer their all-you-can-eat soup & salad lunch, I highly recommend it. You can mix & match the soups & salads.

Today it might get up to the mid 60s - woot! (Then it's gonna chill out again as we approach my spring break - of course.)

Hi Treen, its Mom

Sounds like you are getting along fine - you didn't mention how much you miss your folks. I guess that's just understood. We had sunny skies and temps in the low 70's today, beautiful. Unfortunately I spent most of the time inside the hotel.

Can you really get a refi for 4.5%? That is awesome. Do you know what 30 yr mortgages are going for? Perhaps we can get a new house after all.

See you Monday night - your father is looking forward to Ohio and spending time at the lake. Hope the weather will accomodate.

Love, MUM
