Danielle, our vet prescribed a very inexpensive pill for our previous cats' joint pains. Hopefully you can find something like for your dogs. We buy stuff from PetMeds on line. They have decent prices.
Becky, enjoy your time off!
Andrea, how nice to have 2 weeks with DH. Enjoy and safe travels!
Stetz, score on 5 days. I will get 5, also, but starting Thursday (I'm off on Monday). It's really hard watching your kids go through breakups.
I'm working until 5 on Christmas Eve. Booo. But, tonight I finished up everything. Done!
Our WalMart is within walking distance of my house. It's the only big thing in town, but they have very limited groceries because the city only allows them a small % of groceries. Costo and Winco are very long drives for us. The grocery store I use is a 12 minute drive, but there is a closer, more expensive one I can use.
I'll catch up on gallery love the next time I log in. I'm not sure if I'll log in tomorrow or Thursday, so if I don't, Merry Christmas!!
Hiya? My mom and I finally finished our Christmas shopping today. She had to get stuff for my sister and her fiancé. I even got my sister's fiancé a gift...a box of little plastic fire trucks. I never said it was a serious gift! Tomorrow is the Feast of the Seven Fishes and the fishsticking tri-lingual Christmas vigil....always fun!
Stephanie- Glad you get the five days off. Sorry you have to keep all your stress bottled up so you don't upset Gregg. That can't be easy or fun.
Becky- A lot of places (including the dance studio) are closed until Jan. 5th. Enjoy the time off!
Andrea- Half a cow?! Fishsticks! I can't even imagine what that's like. We use to buy meat at Costco but my grandmother doesn't like their quality so we get that from the grocery store.
Jen- My sister has to work Christmas Eve too. She was ranting about it today because my mom's off until Jan. 5th and, me, I'm still unhappily unemployed.
Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is having an enjoyable day.
Ashley, what was the meaning behind the fire trucks? How was the Feast?
Shawna and I were literally the last ones out of the building at 5pm on Christmas Eve. The owner said, "Let's shut 'er down" at 4:55. So generous.
I asked DH for the Basic Grey warehouse box. He bought it for me an wrapped each item individually. The poor kids looked like they would die of boredom watching me open each and every piece that meant nothing to them.
I have the fishsticking flu but the day was otherwise alright. There was some early drama with my sister, her fiancé, and their dog but that stopped when they left. I think my sister's fiancé was more than a little amazed at the fact I, pretty much, only got books for Christmas. (He, like my sister, doesn't read fiction and that's all I read). I MAY HAVE yelled at him for making my sister a scrapbook using the paper found in the page protectors, scotch tape, and a Crayola marker LOL.
Jen- My sister's fiancé has this weird obsession with chasing fire trucks and taking pictures of fires. He's sort of a wannabe fireman who likes all things fire related so I thought it would be nice to get him fire trucks. He didn't quite get the humor behind it today. The Feast was ok...I don't eat fish so I just had a plate of plain pasta.
