I Love My Girls!

Help! My daughters want a dog. We already have five cats (I'll explain in a minute) and a guinea pig. Two days ago my dear sweet sixteen year old decided to look at our Humane Society online. She just fell in love with a puppy named Clyde. He really is cute. So, Kelsey asked me if she and Katie could go today and look at the dog. I said, "Yes, you can go look (HUGE mistake!) but we are NOT getting a dog." After they left the phone rang and before I even saw Caller ID I knew who it was. Kelsey told me that Clyde had been adopted about 15 minutes before they got there. But guess what? Clyde has a brother that looks just like him. Anyway, I had to tell Kelsey NO again and she started crying. And she was crying when we hung up the phone. (Ugh! It's gonna be a long night.) Oh! I am such a horrible mother! But I just don't want anymore animals. Now back to the cats.....back sometime in January my girls found a cat in a brush pile in our next door neighbor's yard. They played with her for a while and later that night it started snowing a little. I looked out our back door and there was the cat. I had pitty on her and we gave her some milk. And she has been here every since. Well, in April she decided she wanted to have four kittens. So that's the story of Trixie, Peanut, Cali, Bam-Bam, and Lou Lou.

On another note, raggedy angel is having a giveaway. "Gracie" is so cute. So head on over and leave a comment.

I have been painting the trim in our bathroom today. I think I'm finally finished with it. Now Jimmy just has to roll the walls. Yesterday he told me that this will be a project he will remember for a loooooooooong time.

Well, I gotta go for now.

Oh bless your girls' hearts:) I can relate though. In the spring before Jimmy and I got married (in the fall), we were looking online at puppies and we saw our future Petey. I kept saying we could go LOOK but that was it. Well..when we got to the kennel, I TOTALLY fell in love with his big paw and huge ears....needless to say we took him home that day:) Good luck with your're stronger than me for sure! And I'm glad the bathroom is coming along! Can't wait to see it all finished! <3Lauren
