• November 25, 2013 •

Good morning! Friday was a perfect day. I cleaned the house, got the mail, went to work, sent out the grocery list for the day, showered, & then knitted a sweater for our Chihuahua who has been a little chilly in this fall weather (2nd pic). Friday's Sims game was Small Steps Daycare & my Sim Vinnie has been working on his skills & going to work. Saturday was a perfect day too ... I took the dogs out, made a bologna sandwich for lunch & a bagel for breakfast (not in that order), sent the grocery list out, got the mail, created a Pandora account & found out that I like Pandora, took the dogs out, then sat down to work on my Star Trek themed braided mile-a-
minute afghan for the evening. Saturday's Sims game was Autumn Road. I created Chris (1st gen) who is lucky, loves the cold, hydrophobic, equestrian, & a loser. His lifetime wish is to be a jockey. He likes shawarma, custom music, & the color red. He's a Sagittarius. He's been working on his riding skill on his Holstein who is fast, piggy, & agile. Perfect days are coming back to back, because Sunday was too. I'm liking this. I'm finally getting everything done & getting crafting time in too. WOOHOO! I took the dogs out, went through the Sunday paper, made french toast for breakfast, cleaned the house, sent the grocery list out, had a game of Gomoku, took the dogs out, made grilled cheese for lunch, & then sat down to play Sims for the evening. I played that until the game burped & got stuck. My child Sim suddenly stopped aging a day before he was supposed to age up into a teen. At that point I gave up & then moved to the living room to work on a new, better fitting cabled canuck hat. This one is going to be great! :) Yesterday's Sims game was the sculptor career.  My Sim Chris has reached level 10 of the sculpting skill & is on his way to level 10 of the sculpting career, though he's not there just yet. Chris's Son Edward has aged up into a child & is working on random skills until he's old enough to work on the sculpting station. Unfortunately, that's where the game got stuck. He was supposed to age up on a Sunday in the game, but when Sunday rolled around, he still had 1 day to go before he aged up into a teen. I checked the game settings & aging is enabled ... which makes sense because he's been aging up until now. Monday morning rolled around & the school bus came & still no birthday. Crap. I'm going to have to force an age-up the next time I play this game. Last night was a rough night to sleep. Lots of people at fault here. 1) US. We couldn't afford to get Joselyn fixed, so she's in heat. 2) OUR OLDER CHILD & HER EX. They brought Joselyn home & promised they'd take care of her. Now they're gone & we're stuck with her. She's a great dog, but we really weren't ready for a huge dog. 3) OUR YOUNGER CHILD. He tore down our fence, meaning that not only can we not keep Joselyn outside longer during the day because now we have to tie her out on a cable, but other dogs can get to her. 4) THE OWNER OF THIS HUGE MALE DOG. There's a huge, beautiful male dog that showed up last night & hasn't left. He's gorgeous! He looks like a very LARGE mix of a Husky & a white German Shepard. Super friendly. Problem ... he wants Joselyn. He has been at the back door since early yesterday evening & hasn't left. He whines at the back door, barks, & howls. We went to bed & suddenly he stood up & started scratching at the screen & back door! We had to move patio furniture to block the back door to keep him from destroying the screen & all glass door! This morning he's still there & I HAD to take the dogs out. The Chihuahuas will NOT go out there with this moose-sized strange dog at the door, so I'm going to be cleaning up Chihuahua crap off the floor later & mopping up little Chihuahua piddles damnit! There was no way I was going to let Joselyn crap in the house though, so out she went. I clipped her onto her cable & before I got back into the house & closed the door (her cable was AT the back door!) the big male dog was rapidly humping her head. He didn't even wait for her to turn around. I walked into the kitchen, got a glass, poured some milk, looked out & they were connected. Puppies. Just what we needed. Hubby, myself, the owner of this male dog, both our kids, & our daughter's ex ... we're all responsible for this. OK ... I'm asking now. Who wants an American Boxer / Husky / Pitbull / White German Shepard - mix puppy? They're going to be huge. Assuming they were successful in conceiving this morning, they're due to be born January 27th & they'll be ready for new homes March 10th. Who wants a St. Patrick's Day puppy? Speaking of adopting a furry companion, we have 2 kittens & a female cat available. Smokey is the female mother cat, the kittens are a long-haired orange kitten & a shorter-haired gray tiger stripe. Thanksgiving cat or kitten anyone? Living in a rural area, we end up with a lot of dumped pets who need homes. Only Xoco, our Chihuahua, & Harley, our gray & white cat ... are chosen by us. All the rest of our pets have been rescued. Our other Chihuahua Browser ... found at the water company in town. Smokey the female cat, found at the same place (gotta stay away from that water company!).

1st baskets used when James Naismith invented basketball in 1891 were a pair of peach baskets.

All right, I'm going to take the daily poll on the economy ... Now be honest: how many of you had 1 Cheerio for breakfast?

Don't buy a new car. Instead, buy a car that's a year-or-so old & save about $5k. Do spend the $25-$50 to check the auto on CarFax or AutoCheck.
