Summer's Nearly Here!
Wow - time is still going Warp Speed. Tomorrow is the last day for students. Friday's the last day for teachers. judiang is flying in Friday and we're going to spend a week at the Lake. elsaf will be joining us for part of it too. YAY! Friends together again!

This weekend is the Troy Strawberry Festival. Currently the weather is looking... wet. But 50% chance does mean it might not rain just as likely as it might... Here's hoping!

I think I've mentioned this on Twitter already, but I have made the plunge into Crazy Cat Lady-hood. I purchased a Pet Stroller for the kitties. I'm in the acclimatizing process now - letting them sit in it, trying the hood up & zipped. No movement yet. Once my vacation week with the girls is done, my *plan* is to go for walks early each morning with the kitties. My thinking is this: (a) It'll be cooler in the morning and (b) hopefully not as many people can gawp at the Crazy Cat Lady.

I'll also be re-upping to WeightWatchers once the vacation is over and start attending the Friday morning meetings. It does work for me (albeit slowly) and I've not been all that good at keeping to the program without the meetings. Though I'll miss the ladies from work.

Here's hoping the pool at mom & dad's association will be reopening this summer. Last I heard from mom, the patio furniture wasn't out yet, but there did seem to be people working on the water, at least. Cross fingers! The ActiveLink that I have from WeightWatchers is water-proof.

Oh, mom and I have started riding bikes this summer. We had a 7 mile ride on Saturday followed by another 4.5 mile ride on Monday. Wonder if I can talk mom into another run tomorrow evening? Want my butt to get acclimatized (just like my cats).

Anyhoo, hope that this summer (or winter, for you antipodeans) is a great one for all of you! If the two classes that I'm taking this summer don't kill me, I'll probably be stronger for it! :-)

Lucky you. We don't get out until June 7th. That does help the 3rd graders, tho. They were supposed to go on a field trip on the 21st but it was cancelled due to bad weather (and the fact that it was the day after Oklahoma's big tornadoes and no parent was thrilled with the kids going out with the slightest threat of a storm). It has been rescheduled for June 3rd. I think most of the remainder of the week is party central.

Good luck with Weight Watchers and your foray into crazy cat lady-hood. I'm sure the cats will love their walkies. ;)

Ooh, a pet stroller! My sister has one for her dachshund but I never thought of getting one for the cats (since I assumed they would just jump out--I didn't know they made ones that can be zipped up). Given how poorly mine respond to going anywhere in the car, though, I can't imagine they would be much keener on a stroller. Still, keep us informed about what happens with Linus & Lucy! :)

Yay for not only lake time, but bike riding! That's fantastic.
