A pretty quiet weekend

Well, we don't have alot to report on this weekend.  I ended up staying home sick from work on Friday, Tim "thoughtfully" shared his cold with me that he had for the past few days.  However, I got the version on seems to be hitting me much worse (or maybe I am a weakling)  Tim was off on Friday so it was nice to have him home with me.  I had picked up a new light fixture for our hallway in Topeka the day before so we "tried" to get that put up.  Of course,what we thought would be a really simple and quick project didn't turn out that way.  First, the bracket that came with the light didn't fit into the receptical that was in our we just decided to use the bracket that went with the old light, simple fix right?  Well of course not!  Now the problem was that the screws that came with the light were a bit short to work with the old bracket. Tim then headed to WalMart to pick up a couple of  longer screws, but as with anything easy, they didn't have any and the hardware store was already closed. So our "simple project would be put on hold till Monday when he would be home next!  That night we stayed home and watched a movie and I headed to bed pretty early.  Saturday, Tim had to work from 7am-7pm at EMS, so while he did that I stayed here at home and relaxed, but did make it to the hardware store to get those dang screws!  I will have to post a picture of the finished product when we get the light up!  Plus, we had our hallway painted last Wednesday so the last of the painting is done in the house (however, now I want to paint the spare bedroom!! Tim is not thrilled!)  Last night was thier EMS Christmas dinner out at the Country Club. It has been reschedualed a few times due to weather and other conflicts, so last night they finally got to get together.  It was a good time, and we got to hang out with some good friends of ours.  Only bummer of the night was that KSU lost in overtime. Since we were at dinner we just kept up with it on our phones and got the play by play that way!  Today, Sunday, Tim is at work at the Fire Station, and I once again and perched on the couch...still feeling pretty miserable.  I am suppose to have a checkride at work on Tuesday with my prep flight tomorrow.  I really hope I get to feeling better today so that I can get all of that done at the beginning of this week.  We will see though...   Hope you all had a great weekend...Oh yea with my lack of seeing the doors this weekend I almost forgot.  We got about 6-7 inched of snow on Friday and Sunday.  It actually fell quite beautifully, with no wind!  This morning (by morning I mean noon) when I let the puppies out, it looked awsome outside (as long as I can stay inside) There was a lot of frozen fog on the trees and everything looked so peaceful! I will go and click some pictures now and post them for ya!  We also were suppose to be gettting back from Hawaii today, so aloha to you all!
