Eddie's Last Day Off =(

Eddie has been off since Christmas and we have really enjoyed having him home =) Although, I think I gained 10 more lbs. between holiday meals and his good cooking! So today we just hung out then went to the movies to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. Which by the way is a great movie, I highly recommend it. Then again, I have always LOVED the chipmunks!
Tonight I took the Christmas tree down =( I always hate that, I wish it could be Christmas all year long! And Eddie cooked us one last yummy dinner...pork shoulder, mashed potatoes and corn. Well, it wasn't his last, he does cook on the weekends just not during the week.
And just now Brenden felt a bump on the back of the cat's neck and it was a tick! EW, EW, EW! We don't usually let the cat in, he's an outdoor cat but it's going to be like 20 degrees tonight and I didn't want him to freeze! So, I went online and typed im "how to remove tick from cat"! It was pretty simple. Eddie got some pliers and I got the alcohol and cortisone cream. He grabbed it at the base and gently pulled it out and put it in the toilet, I cleaned the spot with alcohol and then rubbed cortisone cream on it. Now we'll keep an eye on it.
I can't believe how cold it is! Our high today was only 41 and right now it's 27 with a wind chill of 19 which is fricken freezing to me!
Becky asked if I had any resolutions for 2008...I did, LOL! But so far am not doing so good! I'll write those out tomorrow.
And I promise I have pics coming soon.
Goodnight and stay warm =)
