The Good Stuff, Day 17
THE GOOD STUFF – DAY 17: JANUARY 21, 2017
* WE WERE ABLE TO RETURN SOMETHING AT BEST BUY WITHOUT ISSUE
We had bought some computer memory to amp up our laptops a bit. It wasn’t until we got home and Eric had taken the laptops apart, old memory out and opened the container with new memory that we discovered we bought the wrong size. We were nervous we wouldn’t be able to return it because we had opened it, but we were pleasantly surprised. They took it back without hassle.
* ERIC AND I TOOK A TRIP TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY
PSA: Don’t go on a Saturday…it was INSANE. Hard to see the dogs with the amount of people in the place.
* WE MAY HAVE GOTTEN A DOG
It may also be a he, a chihuahua, 2 years old, tannish coat and super sweet. He might also have gotten the name: Cosmo.
* HE WAS ONE OF THREE TOP CHOICES
The dog I was originally drawn to was Cosmo’s cage mate. She was also a chihuahua with a black coat and the sweetest face. However, she had been ‘claimed’ so we took a better look at Cosmo. While doing paperwork for Cosmo we noticed that the people never came back for the black dog, but there were people on the phone asking about her. While we were finishing up with Cosmo, the black dog was getting adopted.
The second dog was a 10 year old Alaskan Malamute. She was super tempting. I hesitated because she was 10 years old and she is a freaking Malamute. She’d knock the baby over without even trying. We also don’t have a fully fenced backyard yet, so…It was super hard to leave her though.
* THE KIDS LOVED THE SURPRISE DOG
Not that I didn’t think they’d love having a dog again, but there were a few reactions I didn’t expect. Lex was on the verge of tears and Ailey went a bit crazy.
* WE AVOIDED STOPPING FOR FAST FOOD
We had lunch before we left the house and had dinner as soon as we got home. Feels good to not spend money on fast food when there’s stuff at home
* PLAYED DICE MASTERS WITH LEX AGAIN
I won. However, I’m pretty sure Lex was trying to go easy on me. On one of the last rounds he could’ve hit me for a lot more than he did. But because he didn’t, I took him out.
