Random Monday

  • Tallulah's breeder checks in periodically, to see how she's doing.  I had expressed sadness earlier to know that my girl's getting close to becoming an old dog.  Her breeder told me that Tallulah's grandmother lived until she was 16, and that her mom has barely started to slow down at 11.  That makes me happy.
  • My dog is who is starting to get old has been waking up before 5:00am each morning for about a month.  He paces back and forth on the bed and stands on me to wake me up.  If it was a case of his bladder not being able to hold out all night, I wouldn't mind so much.  I'd fight it every morning, but I'd begrudgingly get up to let him out.  The only problem is, once he finally wakes me up and convinces me to get out of bed, he just wants to play.  
  • A friend was telling me about this great new gym.  There is no-charge babysitting.  There is somebody there who is responsible for watching them, but the kids aren't confined to a room. Apparently, the kids can mingle about the gym and stay near their mom the whole time.  I mean no offence to the moms out there, but as a non-mom, I can't think of anything worse than trying to work out while somebody else's kids are milling about, making noise and generally getting in the way.  
  • Home Depot (AKA the Messa)  has peonies on sale for $3.50.  I only needed one, but I bought three.  I'll find the room, somewhere.
  • If you haven't read The Hunger Games series yet, you should.  Great series, but I think you'll enjoy it more if you don't know what it's about before you start it.  I fought reading it for a long time because I didn't think I'd like the plot line, but I'm almost done the third book and loving it.
  • Baby Veda was born today!


  1. GAG on that gym. The babysitting is a great idea, but AWAY from people working out. I don't want to be responsible for squashing a kid.
    (as if I need Little Bobo staring at me while I'm seizing on a treadmill).

    Lowes had a ton of 1 gallon perennials on sale for $3! Love end of season (!?) sales.

    Veda is a beauty!!!

  2. I second that kiddies in the gym...PLEASE..unless it is a special mommy and baby class or something
    ...mmaybe your pups internal time clock is just off for some reason..such as snoozing a lot during the day and he is just ready to start the day much sooner now(?) good luk with that Im not a morning person so I would suffer with that problem

  3. That's right she did! tehehee

    So glad you read The Hunger Games, such a good good series. Trying to get the husband to read them too.
