What great kids we have!

I just finished checking everyone's blog (because that is what I do first thing in the morning), and I am struck by how smart, funny and self-realized all our kids are. I can't check John's blog of course, but I am certainly including him in the group. if we could just get him pointed where he would really excel.... Anyway, dork that I am, it brought a little tear to my eye.

I am spending the day finishing up sewing projects. It is supposed to sleet and snow tonight, so, to comply with federal law, I will have to go to the grocery at some point. We are dropping Steve's car off this evening at Best Buy so they can install the remote starter I got him for Christmas. This way, he can start the car from the house and let it thaw before he heads out, and not have to stand there and scrape it in the nasty weather. I thought it was a brilliant idea myself.

I am also going to find a kennel to leave Bob at for our trip. Friends, we are in the wrong business. Do you have any idea how expensive it is? And then you have to pay an extra $5 so they will play with your dog for 15 minutes a day outside of his cage. PLUS an additional $2 a day if you want him fed more than once! Crazy.

Are you serious? I am definitely in the wrong business. I should look into Doggie-sitting!

No doubt! The darn dog's hotel bill will be more than half of mine!!
