It "Depends" on your perspective.....

*Disclaimer - No Scotties were harmed in the making of this post!"

You all know that, "I love my Scottie like I love my family!" The first person who tells me where that was a paraphrase from gets a $10.00 Starbucks card! No kidding! (*Note: my little mini-contest has been won by my good Scottie friend, Lynn at Rocky Creek Scotties. She correctly guessed Sarah Palin who said it on her show, Sarah Palin's Alaska! Good going and quick thinking, Lynn!!)

When you have animals, certain things are bound to happen.....


"Mommy, I am sooooo embarrassed. I can't believe you are telling everyone what I did. I'm going to hide my face in shame. On second thought, I think I'll just take a nap..."

Day before yesterday, my grandsons came over and as they often do, they sit on our bed and watch television. Little Samuel likes to eat his Top Ramen while he's watching his favorite shows (I know, I spoil them) and Maggie waits patiently hoping to get a scrap of something or at least is able to lick the bowl. Well she either got too excited or angry that she didn't get even a morsel, not even a crumb, er, noodle.

After the boys left I went in the bedroom and low and behold a giant wet spot on the bed, and it wasn't soup!!! Maggie!!!!!! Luckily it didn't go through to the sheets, but it did get on the chenille bedspread and the huge, fluffy comforter. Both are very heavy and I don't like to wash them at home, so yesterday I was off to the laundromat.

See the pink bedspread on the left and the comforter on the right? That translates to $10.50 for washing and drying!


Before I got there I stopped at Starbucks. The weather was overcast and cold and my breakfast sandwich and coffee hit the spot. Our little laundromat in town is not the most elegant place in town to spend the morning, but that's alright. I sat in the car and ate and read my latest book while the laundry was washing until it got too chilly. Then I went inside to finish things up.



All in all, I actually enjoyed myself. I could have a nice breakfast, read a book relax and not have to look at all the other things at home I needed to do. Not to say I want to make a habit of this. Maggie, do you hear me?......

I'm sure that others have said it differently but I'll give a try at answering your question... "Alaska: I love this state like I love my family." -- Sarah Palin

Oh my they can cause some extra work in our lives but like you say we love our Scottie like we love our family. We had to quit taking Bug downstairs with us to hubs den when we watch a movie on the big TV because twice she got scent of the cat and wet on hubs sectional. And one time when the grand kids were over and we put a twin mattress on the floor of the family room she got peeved about something and did it that time. But thankfully no more in a long time. She does act very sad about it later and goes and sulks under the couch. So much like children.

God Bless America and the local laundromat! Oh the joys of parenting, eh!?

Awwww, surely that sweet little Maggie didn't do it! I LOVE going to the laundromat. I wouldn't want to do it every week, but still. So efficient -- you can get all your laundry done at once!
