Seeing that my dog's baby picture took first place on another forum I hardly ever visit because of the awesome people here on DC. You guys rock. And Peanut get's a few extra cookies at bedtime tonight.

I'm so glad to hear that Stacy! So, which did you do first, hug him or kick him in the butt for not calling?!

Awwwwww! Peanut is adorable. No wonder he (she?) won first place!

LOL, I've been grilling, using the steamer and microwave and electric skillet as much as possible, for fear of running out and not being able to dry laundry....
Now I have to work 4 days and can't celebrate the heck outta my kitchen...
bummer.
But look out on tuesday.... I may end up cooking enough for the whole block!
What a wonderful Blessing! I hope you had a wonderful time!

My celebration is somewhat insignificant but, as I was filling time today between medical tests/etc., I made a stop at a Goodwill thrift store and found two amazing bargains. I bought two pair of slacks - one Alfred Dunner ($49 with tag still on) and a pair of Sag Harbor linen ones (no tag, but in mint condition). I walked out of the store after paying only $6 for both.

I wouldn't have purchased them if I didn't already feel they would match some tops I had at home. When I got home, I discovered I had no fewer than 6 tops that would match either or both.

Another celebration - I had a prescription from my doctor (new one) that I presented to the pharmacy (with a coupon). The whole prescription ended up being free. Without the coupon the prescription would have been $40.

Yeah!!!

Thank you Dina,
She is now 7 years old and the most wonderful dog I have ever had.
I promised my son a puppy for a year if he would go poopy in the potty. She was worth it. He actually wanted 2 puppies and was going to name them Peanut and Peanut!

I too have had a bit of a win today - well really it was my mum who did. We saw the oncologist today for the initial consultation, and whether he pulled strings cos my brother is a doctor (although he didn't really sound like he was when he spoke to others on the phone while we were there) or whether it is just how he operates, he arranged for mum to have her first bout of chemotherapy tomorrow morning. We have to get to his office by 8am, which means leaving here at 7:15am, so that she can have a pick line installed and then the treatment can begin. He typed out a plan of attack for us and gave us provisional treatment dates all the way through to April! He was quite optomistic that her cancer was treatable. Far cry from last week's surgical consult which only gave her a 15% chance of survival!! (The seven days since were tough on us both mentally!!!) The radiotherapy won't start until November. I am sooo tired though so can't really appreciate the full implication of it all.

Bilby,
will be thinking of you and your mom and praying she walks away from this and is well. it sounds as if this doctor has hope for her and that sure makes things easier to face. You need to take care of you..I understand the tiredness so please watch out and stay well.I'm here if you need to yell,cry or a good laugh..

Got a job today. Doesn't pay worth a flip, $6.25, minimum wage. That makes me sick. Suppose to go up, the older you get, not go backwards. Anyway, it's at a Nursing Home in the kitchen, hehehe, poor people. I am cross training. I will be picking up their trays and helping clean and also learning to cook for 200+ people, lol
