Trying to cope..

Here i am again. So far, this has been a pretty pleasant day. Hubby has gone out for the day so I am here alone. It is quiet.
Yesterday was okay. We played golf and had a very nice game. It was pleasant and fun and hubby was not freaking out. We just played 9 holes and he got to use the red tees so he was fine. I am amazed at how much work they are doing on the course now that it has been sold. It really looks nice. I hope they continue to improve it. It actually makes it more fun to play.
We went to lunch at Shoney's. It was fine but I really don't want to start eating there again. Too many cold cereal memories and I can just see thw weight packing back on. I do NOT want that to happen. I just have to look at the people who are eating there and I can see what happens. Ugh.
After lunch, we went into town. I bought a really NICE computer chair at the Goodwill Store. It is about $200 chair that I got for $13. We had to pick it up because i could not carry it home in the jeep. I love it and I cannot believe I found it. It is clean, totally intact, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with it. It definitely is close to the top in my Top 5 Finds at the Goodwill Store. It may actually be #1.
We've been toying with the idea of getting a friend for Cookie. I e-mailed the natioanl Dachshund rescue group about a couple of dogs they have here in the area but tey are just a little TOO demanding with their screening and "applications". They want 4 references, the require a home visit and follow-up visits. I think it would be easier to adopt a Chinese baby girl than a dog from this rescue group. I think we will stick with the local shelters. Camden had one on their web site that I called about but it was an 8 week old puppy. That, I most definitely DON"T need. Cookie might like it but not me. I'll check at the downtown shelter.
That's it. It is quiet. I had an early lunch (noodles and crackers) and I will just have a nice day. I don't know when he is coming back. Probably late this afternoon.
Okay. Bye bye.

some shelters are also that tuff too.

Ah, a quiet day at home, enjoy.
I don't blame you for passing on a young puppy, you'll find the right buddy for Cookie.
You must have the most amazing GoodWill store there. I'm jealous.

I think some organizations definitely get a bit extreme on their screening for animals. Then they wonder why they can't get anyone to adopt. Go figure.

I'm glad to see that you've found an alternative to the AOL blog that you lost. If you need any help with how to add photos or anything, feel free to let me know. I've been using Blogger for a long time and like it!

Glad you aren't discouraged with the requirements of the rescue organization and have shifted to local shelters. There is such a huge need for homes for abandoned dogs!

*wave* I am here visiting via "That's My Answer".

I don't like Shoney's any more...their food and service has went downhill.
