The biggest news right now in our life is the dog. We decided to keep him! I posted & made it "Facebook Official" last week, but didn't post here. So yes, hellbob & I officially have a HellHound now! Rick didn't really like the name Yuki at all so we've renamed him Dogasaurus Rex, and just call him Rex. Lump still hates him. Maybe someday she'll learn to tolerate him. And maybe someday we'll have flying cars. The odds are about even on those two things!
As reported on Facebook, the score is now Dog-2, Mice-0.
On our walk last Wednesday when Rex pounced on a leaf it was actually the mouse he thinks that ALL leaves are. My puppy is quick!
I finally got to go to the Dome and see a live Vikings game! It was awesome! Unfortunately it was the Green Bay game and we were freaking destroyed. That wasn't so awesome. At least the colossal loss finally got Childress fired!
Rick & I failed our sanity roll this year and were at the Target Black Friday sale in line before it opened. But, we got a 40" TV for $300. We've really got to get going on the basement movie/game room now!
We also replaced the king-size blankets & comforters that we had to throw out after Lump peed on them with some good bargains Friday. I really love the "all sizes one price" deals now that I've got to buy king-size!
The other bargain we got for ourselves was the Nook that Best Buy had on sale. We knew we were getting either a Kindle or a Nook, but once I got more details on the Nook I knew that was the one we'd be getting. Besides the fact that it can do the epub open source format, you can also use a Nook to check out eBooks from the Hennepin County Library! You can't use a Kindle for them because Amazon won't let the Kindle use the copy protection format that the library eBooks requires.
I actually put up my Christmas tree this year! I was going to surprise Rick with it but the silly boy didn't go to his band practice tonight. I haven't decorated it yet though. I've decided this year that I am going to declare xmas light amnesty. The strings are all different, only about 1/2 the lights work, and they are more & more of a headache every year. So I'm going to chuck the ones we have and start new. I won't be able to put the decorations on the tree until i get the new lights bought, so that will just have to wait until tomorrow. I'm not too worried about the tree with Rex, because I just put together the top half of our tree and put it on top of the little table we have in the corner of the living room. Once I have it decorated I'll post a picture.
Well, as usual I'm up far too late, so it's off to bed for me.
