Frigid

Right now the temperature is 0 and I am wishing it was sunny and 80 degrees. I think I am finally over this whole love of winter. I am ready for things to be green outside and for Sophie and I to be able to go for long walks.

Every time it gets really cold I have trouble locking and unlocking my apartment door. This morning when I took Sophie out for a walk it took me a couple tries, but I finally got the door locked. When we got back to the apartment I couldn't' get the door unlocked. I tried and tried, but finally stopped because I was afraid I was going to break the key. And wouldn't you know it, this was the one time I didn't have my cellphone. Luckily I saw one of the maintenance guys and he came over and tried a couple times and finally got it open. He told me to call in a maintenance order because it shouldn't be this hard to get open. I felt so bad for Sophie because when we got inside the hair around her mouth was full of ice. Poor baby was so cold. So I grab my stuff and when I try to lock the door it will not lock. I tried for about 5 minutes and finally I decided that it was not going to lock. So I call my boss and sit and wait for the office to open at 9am. I noticed someone was there around 8:30am and she said she would send someone over as soon as possible. About ten minutes later the maintenance guy shows up and after a few tries gets it locked. He looked at me and said, "it's working now". I told him that I should not have to struggle this much with getting my door locked and unlocked and he said they would replace the weather stripping because he thought that was causing the problem.

I have been struggling with things to write about on my blog because my life is so normal right now and I am sure you guys would get tired of me writing every day how wonderful S is. I am sure you guys would get tired of me saying how she is so sweet and how she loves to send me TXT messages that simply say, "You are the best part of my life." Every time I get one of her TXT messages or emails I have to pinch myself because I can't believe that this wonderful, smart and beautiful woman loves me and wants to spend the rest of her life with me. She always tells me she is the lucky one, but really...I am the lucky one.

So that's about it for now. Life is really good, a little cold, but really good.

Hmmm. I'd insist to the management that something be done NOW. All you need is to get locked out, especially "after hours" in that kind of cold weather! I don't understand how weather stripping would cause the lock to malfunction, anyway.

How can you not have something to write about??? Besides S, there are three animals, your job, your neighbors and the other crazies in KC, the weather, more sights along your frequent drive, the kooks you work with (giggle! I'll be in trouble on that one!), etc. You're just in luuuuuuuuuv and distracted! Admit it! LOL!!

Oh, you have things to write about -- you just need to think about it differently. :) A blog doesn't necessarily have to be a place to vent -- it can just be a place to remember what you want to remember, even if those are just little things. I'm glad you don't have as much to vent about though!

lynilu--well...there are things to write about...:) until it warms up i think i will just walk sophie right in front of my apartment during the after hours so i don't get locked out again. and i will always make sure that i have my cell phone with me

amy--you are so right. i think for so long i was using my blog as a way to vent about all the bad things going on...i need to start using it to document all the wonderful things that are happening in my life right now.
