That said, glad you keep popping in.
So true! And thanks!!

Where I'm different is if I don't like someone I usually just leave them alone, but if I do post to them it's usually done in a fun way. I don't like fighting much so I'll add humor to a beat down lol. I like to keep it fun.

Glad to have been part of the best night's sleep you've had in awhile.

Oh, they all died off. The last one kicked it maybe 6 months ago. I actually had to take her in and have her put to sleep; the only pet I've had to do that with. She was 8 or so, I had her for 7.

I think you'd better let *me* pick you up from the airport.
:D

If your schedule allows, we should try and have lunch or dinner.

8 sounds pretty old for a hamster, is that typical?

I've decided that this year i"m either getting engaged or I'm getting a kitten!:D

It's pretty old for a guinea pig. Most of mine lived around 5.

Glad to hear that! We love our Streak, but if I have to spend 7 more years harping at my daughter to feed him and clean out his cage, I'm going to go insane.

5 more years I can handle.
:D

Yeah, I ogle them every time I go to a pet store, but that phase of my life is over.

Now a little girl French bulldog or maybe an English bulldog? In a couple years when I've forgotten what a pain in the arse puppies are? Yes, please :-D

Maybe all the Chicago-area regs should meet up at the airport? We'll greet her at the gate?

You'd have to buy an airline ticket to do that.

Weekend plans:
First, my sister now has an ID! Took her to DMV yesterday and she got her DL renewed. It was set to expire on Sunday, so we got that in RIGHT under the wire. And now, stupid DMV just raised the cost to $45.00 freaking dollars. Really? Douchebags. For reference...they were $20.00 <sigh>
Today: Taking them shopping. They had nothing, and I do mean nothing. A backpack between them. I just finished folding their laundry and each and every single article of clothing is either full of holes or otherwise ruined. I bought them shampoo, body wash, toothpaste (and brushes) and stuff yesterday, but they need other stuff, not the least of which is clothes, so there goes my new laptop. <sigh> Also going to see about my nephew getting registered in school and about petitioning the court to re-open her divorce petition from a few years ago. Apparently you can do that.
Tomorrow: Just letting everyone rest and feel safe for a while. She's not receptive to rehab...yet, but she is receptive to the shelter (the one with all of the resources) that I want her to go to, so I'm thinking of trying to get her in there on Monday. She's also amenable to counseling, so there's positive starts happening.
Sunday: Taking my nephew (ahem) to church. Quit looking at me like that. He asked if I would take him, so I am. <shrug>
1. Check good resale shops in your neighborhood. Also, if they have Plato's Closet in Seattle, that is a consignment chain which will be good for nephew beacsue stuff is trndier but still cheaper than retail
2.Good for you for (?)manning up and taking him Sunday. Its Palm Sunday and they will be reading the passion story most places. Does he have a particular denomination he wants to go to?

Heh, Wisconsin got bounced in the first round of the tourney. I watched the game on my phone. They couldn't make any baskets.

I'd love to meet up with you guys. I'll be there from 6/7 to 6/10 and am mainly vising a RL friend but I'm staying downtown and will have time for other stuff.

You don't need an airline ticket to meet someone coming OFF the plane.
