February 13, 2013 Wednesday Afternoon

Went out for supper last night for tacos, rice and beans, and of course a strawberry margarita.  After eating we went to a meeting on the proposed apartment complex going up directly across the street.  We were shown the proposal and given time to talk about it.  I had a lot of questions.  Got all my questions answered.  They are putting up a 32 unit apartment complex with rents starting at $1500 a month.  I think that is high but I would rather have people who can afford that living across the street then some low income housing project.  In fact it could have been much worse.  We were all told the lot is big enough and zoned for an 8 story high building with 110 units.  WTF?   Can you imagine if I had to look out my front window to an eight story apartment complex?  So I guess we should be happy they didn't do the full scale project they could have on this land.  The drawings look like it will be nice to look at which is important being right out my front window.  The project should start in Spring and you can be sure I will post pictures as the construction begins and goes on.  Actually I can't wait for all the construction workers I will be able to watch for about 6 months right outside my window.  Might have to set up a table and chairs in the front yard.  LOL.  Set up a lemonade stand?  LOL. Got home a little after 9 PM just as Obama was finishing his speech.  I did want to hear it but heard the highlights and the stupid Republican response to the speech.  Went to bed around 10 PM.

This morning I was up by 7 AM.  Fed the dogs, gave Vito his shot, and got Tony out the door for work.  Spent the early morning reading the newspapers and was out the door by 10 AM to get my usual McDonald's bacon egg and cheese bagel and a sausage burrito to heat up for lunch.  Ate the bagel in the Pick N Save parking lot before going in and doing the weekly grocery shopping.  Bought Tony a Valentine balloon along with the groceries.  Got home and by noon I left the house again to go for my usual walk along the river trails.  I really had to push myself today to get out and do the walk.  I have done so little the past few days I knew I needed the walk.  Had a great walk and was so glad I pushed myself out the door to do it.  I can clear my head and feel so much more relaxed after a walk.  Got home and ate the burrito from McDonald's and then took a short nap on the bed with the dogs.  Don't think I got much sleep but was able to just lay there with the dogs and listen to some good music.  Making spaghetti with the rib meat left overs from Monday.  I know we had spaghetti last week, Tony is Italian, he could eat it every day.  Will make some salads to go with the spaghetti.  Most likely will spend the night watching TV from the DVR since it records shows daily and there is always another show adding to the DVR.  The Walking Dead started up again last Sunday so I am sure we will watch that first.  It got to 40 degrees today in Milwaukee and was sunny almost all day.  Tomorrow we are going to get a couple inches of snow, just in time since the snow we have is almost gone.  Would be happy if it was just rain.  Tired of the snow and shoveling even though it has not been that bad this year again, so far.   Suppose to be a very cold weekend back in the teens.
