Sweetheart in the Summer

I'm very excited because next week is only a 4-day week! Friday is the 4th of July and I have a lot of fun stuff planned! We are going to a daytime Brewers game. Then, that night, we get to see fireworks! Where? I'm not sure yet. But, I assure you, we will find some!!

Spirit (the cat) is still doing well. She was being sort of bad this morning and ate part of my kitchen rug. Luckily, it was just a plain rug from Family Dollar, so I only spent about six dollars on it. I was still pretty angry though and had to give her a bop on the nose to let her know it is wrong to chew on things. She has also been waking me up at about 4am-5am. Some mornings she tries to wake me up about every five minutes, but the last few days have been better. I don't know how to better *control* her internal clock, and I'm probably not going to try to, but she definitely has a LOT of energy in the early morning hours.

Yesterday we had to drive all the way back to Dubuque to pick up the last couple of boxes from our old apartment and turn in our keys. They had just done a walkthrough that morning and told us the place looked perfect and well taken care of so we are getting our whole deposit back! Hooray! Basically we drove for about four hours that day just to turn our keys in and hear that. Seemed like a bit of a waste. Oh well. Then, last night we went to Wall-e. What a cute movie! I'm pretty sure it was the best I've seen this year.

Today a couple of former coworkers flew to Madison to see me. We went out to eat, and then to the zoo, and finally to the mall to walk around. It was nice to see them and hang out.

Tonight I kind of wanted to go see some fireworks, but Ian worked at 10 and I didn't want to battle traffic alone. I will just wait until next week!!

That's all I have for now. Maybe I'll write more later.
