Thanks T. He is more than a bit spoiled. I asked Jory over the weekend to feed Max. Jory got a paper plate and a small bowl. He put kitten chow on the plate and filled the small bowl with water and put that on the plate too. Max got the royal treatment from Jory alright!
Vent: MIL can go suck a rotten effin egg! Since when are you allowed to say that I can't afford to buy a GPS for my husband for Christmas!?!?!? Also, when my husband (your son) RESPECTFULLY tells his father that we plan on getting a dog you are not allowed to ignore it and hope it goes away. How effing disrespectful is that?! I don't give a sh!t if you own this house! The fact of the matter is that I'm getting a dog with or without your approval and with or without my husband's knowing. You are just going to have to deal. And one more thing.....I REFUSE to put my daughter in a freaking play pen all freaking day! She's not an animal! I don't care if she's getting more mobile I am not caging her up ALL DAY! AND YES I spend most of the day playing with her...I DON'T CARE It's how your son and I are raising our child! WITH LOVE unlike they way you raised your kids. FYI....buying your kid tangible items is not love.
Aw Steph - sorry about the MIL --- I have a good MIL .. my mom on the other hand was perpetually sucking on lemons ... My DH gets HUGE brownie points for putting up with her for as long as did.
What kind of GPS are you looking at...We have an old one (Garmin I think) but need a new one. To upgrade the maps is almost 100.00 bucks and I'm thinking a new Nuvi isnt much more than that ... DH mentioned that as a Christmas present so I need to start looking into it I suppose.
Anyone have any black friday leads? I havent spent time yet looking or googling for ads/reports yet.
Cassie - I have heard those are neat. I can barely use my GPS now.
I imagine the GPS/tracker thing would be simple to use for some ... probably not me though. I'd probably run in front of a car trying to look at my heart rate or something. Still havent figured out how to answer my husbands droid phone without hanging up on the person first ... I am such a technologically challenged person - truly sad. Dont even get me started on the mp3 players!
HUGE GIANT NONVENT- I got my MRI results. There was no tearing or bruising. No surgeries or braces required. They didn't see anything wrong other than a slight compacting of some of the cartilage in my knee, but they don't think that is what is causing the pain. They think I strained a ligament or something. She said to keep icing it and resting until it feels better and then I can start slowly adding running back in. I figure if I feel better by next Tuesday I will try to do a 2 mile run that morning to see how it goes (only if I feel totally better). If that goes well then I will do a 3 or 4 miler on Thursday. If that goes well then I will go ahead and run my 10k. I may finish the slowest person on race day, but it will be awesome and I will be so happy to even be able to run. If I can't run yet I can't run yet, but it looks like I will definitely be able to run the Thanksgiving 5k.
