Shopping with a sister... you spend way more money than if alone...and get the other to spend "way more money"...
"NO...too frumpy"... "Oh come on, get it - don't be crazy, it looks great on you" and "our kids will love this...or "these"... something for everyone! Just buy it, what's the big deal??? I realized, we went to the "outlet" in Harriman... initially to go to 1 shop...the other 3 stores we went into... all got "our money"... I think I'll keep shopping to a non social event, maybe not as much fun... but much easier on the wallet! blah, blah, blah...nah...I'd do it again tomorrow!!!

"Barley"We all know at sometime we'll get one of these calls... and of course we dread them.
Today my sister called me to tell me that our parent's dog, Barley, had died. It stopped me in my tracks. Barley had a VERY GOOD DOG LIFE... he was a great dog - Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that was born to a breeder in Ireland... He spent many days with us, he got along very well with our dog and was easy to dog sit, we always loved having him. My Mom is "heart sick" - Barley was a huge part of my folks daily lives, he traveled everyplace with them, up and down the coast from Florida to NJ, etc.
The good news, if there is "good news"... he did not suffer, he was not on medicine to keep him alive, he never had to be brought to a Vet to be "euthanized"... he died a quick natural death, but it makes it so hard on those that will miss him most.
So today, I came home and saw my overweight Golden Retriever on the love seat she is NOT supposed to be on, but just ignored it and played with her a little longer then I usually do outside... Dogs, Animals... we all know the inevitable when we get them, but we are never prepared.

I'm NOT a Starbuck Coffee fan, but I LOVE this insulated cup that you can purchase. I'm forever taking drinks with me, and I LOVE a lot of ice... this cup is so well insulated it does not "bead" up on the outside and keeps a cold drink insulated and cold for a great amount of time... Just a "little" plug... my cousin gave me one for Christmas... I left it in my office and sure the cleaning people "loved it too" as it disappeared from my office! With the HOT days of summer here already, keep your favorite cold drinks conveniently COLD!!!
