My boy dogs

These 2 dogs! They wear me down. I was sitting at the computer earlier and they are being loud (like always), biting at each other, jumping around, just doing dog stuff. Then all of a sudden it got quiet, and I got suspicious. I turned around, and I see them both eating stuffing out of their chicken toy. See, they have a system. Grover bites a hole in the toy, then Gunther chews the hole to make it bigger. Then they get a snack of dry/non tasty stuffing. Team work right, I should be happy. The end of the chicken toy story goes pretty much like the end of the vet toy story. The vet saw his downfall about an hour before the chicken. Jesse and I were so happy when we found those Fat Cat toys. Before Grover found us, they were the only thing that would last with Gunther. Oh, those boys. Right now, Gunther is snoring (and he just farted) and Grover is sleeping under my feet. I am sure they are dreaming up more mischief.

Tomorrow is my last day of work before my weekend, yeah! I am so happy to have a couple of days off. I really feel run down this week. I want to convince Jesse to go see that movie, Quarantine either Monday or Tuesday. It is about zombies. I really like zombies. I think about them a lot. I like to think about what to do in the event of an outbreak. I like to make plans. It is good to have a plan.

I got to go to Scrapbooks Etc. on Monday. I bought a lot of stuff. Stuff I didn't even know that I needed until I saw it. It is funny how that works, huh? I went there with my new friend, Leslie. She is a very good person, and I had a lot of fun hanging out with her. We stopped at Sonic, and each got a cherry coke. I swear that cherry coke was the best of my lifetime. It had the perfect combination of the cherry flavor and the coke. Then after the cherry coke, we signed up for a class at another scrapbook store, the class is at the end of the month. I am really excited about that. I think it will be a lot of fun. Plus I have the stamps that I plan to use on my holiday cards on the way. I feel behind this year with those, I need to get on the ball.

My mother and aunt have convinced me to have a Princess House party. If anyone is interested in anything from them, let me know. They sell glass kitchenware. Because my mom has parties all the time, I have a bunch of their stuff, and use it all the time. It is very durable. So many things of mine have been moved/shipped and are still in one piece. So, just let me know.

I think that is all for now. I will let you know how the movie turns out.

Hey!! Look at me with a blog! I didn't really think about ever having one until my new friend Leslie convinced me I needed one! What do people blog about? It might take me awhile to get used to how this is "supposed" to work.

Let me tell you about my day: I woke up, got ready for work. After that, I took care of the cats, and the dogs. I am pretty sure that I forgot to give Grover his medicine this morning. I can't be sure though, because my memory stinks. I have been rewarding myself on Fridays with Jamba Juice, so this morning I stopped in and got myself an Orange Dream Machine. I also ordered some lemon berry bread. But the girl dropped it on the floor and it was the last one. Of course, it was the last one. So, I had to settle for a gross tasting Apple Cinnamon pretzel. Ugh. I got to work and spent all day doing worky stuff. I made a list at the beginning of the week of everything I wanted to get done, and I checked another thing off my list. But it was work. I love my job, I love the people I work with, so it makes me happy. Then I came home, took care of the dogs again. Oh, I did finish watching Brothers and Sisters. My mother got me into that show, and now I am hooked. She saved them on her DVR for a really long time until I went back to NY to visit. It drove my dad nuts, but I am so glad she did. Anyone else watch this? (Now I am being silly, no one is reading this!) Just me and the dogs all night.

I was trying to come up with something clever for my blog address/title. Everything that I thought of, someone more clever than me had already taken. But I do like jeans, and my name for pretty much everything is april_sp1, so it works for me!

I think that is all for now. I am off to do my Wii Fit. It tells me that I need to gain weight, and it likes to make a wimpy noise everytime it tells me my weight and BMI. Yeah, I'm working on it, it has pretty much been the story of my life.

Later peeps.
