I've seen it...I have PROOF!

I've seen PROOF that the dog waits for me to sit down and then goes to the door to be let out.

Nacho(the offender), Sadie, and that's my stepdad :D
Yesterday I walked out the kitchen, and my Min Pin, Nacho, was right behind me.   I walked to my chair as I watched her out of the corner of my eye.  She walked to a point where she could see me if I sat in my desk chair and she sat down.   As SOON as I sat down in my chair (her eyes where on me the whole time) she got up and went to the door and started grumbling to be let out!  WHY! does she do this, is it some  kind of fun little doggy joke, does she talk to her rivals through the fence? Do they hold a conversation about it...."Dude! guess how many times I made her get back up today and let me out RIGHT after she sat down!"  are they LOLing about it around the neighborhood?  I've often suspected that she did this, but I've never caught her blatantly watching me.     At least her sister, Sadie is too dumb to do this to me too, she's just a -wanna be outside all the time- dog.  Maybe it's just her way of telling me I'm fat?  Not that she couldn't stand to lose a few pounds herself.  Anyway....I was right, I finally got my answer, she really does wait for me to sit out before she asks to go out.  Rotten DOG!

The Pool is Green.

The pool is green, the greenest green you've ever seen. The kids won't swim, I say "Jump In!" Why not swim, it's like a lake, it's just water for goodness sake.  What's a little algae between friends, it all washes out in the end. Chemicals in hand I try to fight it, frustrated I yell, "Die algae, BITE IT!" I smile a bit when it starts to die, you can see it float up with your naked eye. Alas I fear it has won, I'm out of chemicals so I'm done.   I'll live to fight another day, with shock in hand I'm on my way.  I'm not fat but I'm not lean, and I'm here to tell you the pool is green.

2.5 to 3.5 Million...REALLY!?

As I was driving my son to summer school this morning(yeah..really) I was listening to my favorite morning show. They were talking about Chelsea Clinton getting married possibly this weekend and it was expected to cost between 2.5 and 3.5 MILLION dollars. REALLY?! Why spend that much on a wedding...obviously it's simply because they can. My current husband and I got married 8 years ago, it only cost $4,000 and it was a truly beautiful wedding. My dress was beautiful and only cost $700, it was catered, a beautiful venue, we had a DJ, there was alcohol, and a harpist that played during the actual wedding part, we had a great photographer, and everyone had a great time.

So on my way to summer school, as I'm contemplating the whopping $4.92 in our checking account and that's what's left til Thurs., it bugs me just a tad. How many people in this country at this particular moment are going w/o while little Chelsea gets hitched. How many times do we hear this type of thing a day.

One of my two oldest sons' favorite things to do is watch videos on Youtube...they like to watch the ones of the guys who put the dumbest things in blenders to see if it will blend it w/o breaking the blender. An example of things they have blended: an iphone, an ipad, and various other expensive gadgets. No wonder this is such a disposable society, when kids grow up thinking this is cool. Why take care of anything to make it can just destroy it when you're done w/ it, or claim it on the insurance, or buy a new one. Waste, waste, just keeps on going.
