I may have jumped the gun a bit on my last post. I was a bit put off by the lady that came to pick up MY doggie. She came by last night with some human treats for us and a Thank You card. She also put a $75 check in the card. We figure she was just overwhelmed at actually having MY doggie back. Note to self. I must remember not to rush to judge.
Happy weekend all!
Oh, and we will be leaving on our Thanksgiing Cruise on Sunday. SO Happy Thanksgiving to all!
I get attached too quickly and then I end up getting my heart broken. But c'mon, who would not fall in love with this face?? On Thursday Kat rescued this little furball of total cuteness. She was dodging in and out of rush hour traffic and was so close to getting run over. Kat brought her home, we bathed her, brushed her and she made herself totally at home. I fell in love with her at first sight. She didn't have a tag and the only posted flyer that we saw (and called) was for another dog.
She loves being held and cuddled. She gets so happy to see us and her little tail does not stop wagging. Until today.
So last night, Kari saw a flyer with my doggie's picture on it. Mind you it's been four days and the flyer just went up. So I called. They came. They took her. Thing is that my furbaby did not seem very happy to see her owner. Her tail was not wagging and she kept looking at me with sad puppy eyes. I hope that I did the right thing. I hope that they treat her well. I hope that they don't use her for pros-ti-tution breeding and making money, since Yorkies are so fragile.
Kat just pointed out the fact that the owner never once said thank you. She appeared happy to see her doggie, but did not once acknowledge that the doggie was well cared for, that we bought her food & treats, that we bathed her or that we had totally fallen in love with her. Disregard the water forming in my eyes. It must be allergies :(

I have been a bad blogger. I suppose that an attempt at washing my windows does not make for interesting blog reading, but that is what I did today. Great learning experience. What did I learn? That a) I HATE washing windows b)I suck at washing windows c) It's hard as heck and d) I will never do it again!
I am not cut out for that. I started off ok. I had Danny remove the screens before he left to work. I got my stuff together, including the stinky vinegar. I washed the screens with no problem. Then I started on the windows. First floor only. I quit after doing 5 windows. Our house has 15 windows plus 2 large bay windows(which is like 6 individual), plus a set of french doors. So yeah, I did less than a quarter of them and I will.not. be doing them either. I can still see out of them and that's all that matters!
Look how happy that woman in the picture looks! She should come over and do my windows!
We go back on the Red Eye yesterday. Trip was fun but exhausting! So I wake up at around noon today, which I guess is 11 Am now, but since my body is still on West coast time, that would be 9, sort of, but not really since they changed time too so maybe it's 8. Whatever. The point is, that I am totally out of whack!
We stayed at the Venetian the first few nihts. We're creatures of habit so we stayed where we always stay. We should try some of the other hotels, they all look great! We also stayed in downtown for one night, which was intersesting. We stayed at the Golden Nugget which was not bad at all! We were pleasantly surprised. Our one night in Death Valley was our most expensive and the worst. Go figure. I literally slept on a board instead of a mattress. I have yet to stay in a nice room inside a National Park.
Vegas was not very kind to us. but we are not big gamblers to start with so the chances were slim to start. Death Valley was HOT but cool to their standards I guess. Way to dry for me though. I think I went through an entire bottle of moisturizer. I could actually feel my skin tightening up and aging!
We ate ALOT. Of course we had m In-n-Out, we had 2 buffets plus one amazing dinner at Envy steakhouse. If you're ever in Vegas, check them out. The food is FANTASTIC and the service is top notch!
I need to get back into the groove of everyday life here. Catch up on blogs. And do laundry. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate doing laundry?
