COUNTDOWN: 135 days

Things to do today:
* Wow, we got a lot accomplished today. In addition to Bill Collins coming and getting our piano, we did a ton of work outside. I mowed and did the weedeating everywhere for the first time this season, and Jody and Hillary stained the deck. We also spread mulch around the pool and deck, and Jody trimmed all the bushes and weeded the flowerbed, too. We will be SORE tomorrow!!!

Malibu fact of the day:
* You guys remember Western Auto? It was bought out by Sears Roebuck in 1987, and in 1998 what was left of it was sold to Advance Auto Parts. Well, the founder of Western Auto was George Pepperdine (who began the company with $5 in 1909). He made his fortune through the company, and then founded Pepperdine University in 1937 in Los Angeles. The university moved to Malibu in 1972.

What I’ll miss about Ocean Springs today:
* We’ll miss our little friend, Emily. Tracy & Shanna brought her over tonight while they went out to dinner and a movie. Emily is our little buddy, and we’ll miss her a lot.

What I’m thinking today:
* I’ve got to be honest: since I HATE yard work, now that we’ve had a day full of it, I’m thinking how much I can’t wait to live in an apartment again!!!
