Catching Up

I am still playing "catch up" after running around and having fun over the weekend rather than getting any work done around the house. Yesterday I went to WF to do some things with Mom. I probably spent over an hour on the phone with AT&T working on her telephone/internet bill. I only got "ugly" with AT&T once. We also bought her a new cell phone. Then we went and had lunch and lessons on the new phone. We made a big trip to Hobby Lobby since paper, brushes, frames, and paints were all on sale this week (for my art classes). We also stopped by the new Michael's where I bought one watercolor brush - just something I wanted to try out. Anyway, the trip to WF turned into a full day. When I finally got on the road to go home, I stopped to buy a Diet Pepsi for the road and realized that I had left my purse at Mom's. Gosh I hate it when I do things like that.



I got home in time to do some dishes, move the laundry around from washer to dryer, and hang some clothes on the line - all before I took off to meet up with my girl friends. I'd tell you about that, but then I would have to kill you. Lets just say that I have not laughed so hard since I-don't-know-when. You know me; I will let you in on our fun, but not today.



Instead, I will leave you with a couple of photos. Becky posted a picture of a stuffed bear that she has had for a while. I thought I would post a picture of my bear, Pink Paws. I have had him since I was about four years old. My oldest memory of him was at the house in Valley View. I named him Pink Paws because the teen-aged girl next door had a brown bear with pink paws and that is what she named her bear.



My sister sent several pics of her dog, Chula, with her new bandanna. I thought my sister was pretty cute too.

You would have to kill us huh?! ;)

My poor bear has been assaulted by two puppies. One ripped his face off which we fixed. And when the other came around she not only ripped his face off but ate his eyes. Poor thing :(

Yep and yep! You can definitely tell you and your sister are siblings... especially when it comes to your smiles.

Becky said...

Awww, Pink Paws looks very well loved!

Thanks for the link, Lou.

Lou - you gave me an idea for a post! Bear Tales! Will have it up by tomorrow I hope... Cute sis and puppy! I might need a bandana like that for my cat! Too bad we have to get "ugly" before we can get our point across... good customer service is hard to find. I've got to say though, I've had Verizon for two years and am extremely happy with the customer service they provide.

Ashley, at the least, I would have to rough you up like a dog with a stuffed bear toy.

Jenny, I don't know if she had the bandanna made or bought it.

Diva, you could be on the hit list too...

Buck, I suppose there is something about Kathy and me that looks alike, but I have never thought we favored much. There is definitely a "Barker" look in all my siblings.

Becky, Yes, I loved the fur right off of him.

Fire Fox, US Cellular has been good here in OK and TX, but it is AT&T that usually makes me crazy. "Hold while I switch you to this dept. Hold while I switch you to this dept..." And that was not the worst part.

I look forward to your "bear tales."
