Swagbucks Referral and Random Stuff

(the link isn't working!) I am just getting started using it, but if it helps me get giftcards and stuff, I'm all for it.

I had a great weekend with DBF and his family. It was extra hard leaving the furbabies right after Max passed away. It didn't help at all that Ginger had to go to the kennel. My co-worker, Tonya, has been stopping in twice a day to feed her, give Ginger her meds, and walk her. However, with it being a holiday weekend, Tonya had family come in and wasn't able to come by everday. Completely understandable! Ginger, however, does NOT like the vet's office for a visit much less a four day weekend there. I had to not only walk her back to the kennel, but get in it myself in order to get HER in it. I felt so guilty leaving her there!

I had a lot of fun this weekend though. We all (DBF, his parents, sister, niece and me) went to a county fair Friday night to watch a truck pull. I'd never been to one before and it was pretty cool. One truck came loose from the sled that it was trying to pull and the sled hit it in the tailgate. The tailgate was damaged, but nothing seriously long. DBF's two year old niece, Maddy, would cover her ears with someone else's hands and press them down with her hands whenever she saw the black smoke start to rise from the truck. It was cute.

On Saturday, Vince and I went to a little town called Renfro Valley where they have a log cabin museum. There were actual log cabins, not replicas. They were moved there from other parts of Kentucky. I plan to do a post on this part of the trip in a couple days.

Right now I should be doing homework or housework, but just feel like killing time on here. I can call it quality time with the furbabies since whenever I'm on the computer, someone's on my lap.

Here's the marker I want to get from ebay for Max's grave:

And here's one of Max's last pictures:

Sounds like you guys had a nice time! I know what you mean.... I really don't like leaving my furbabies either! We are leaving them for a day and a half on Friday so we can go to Busch Gardens. I'm gonna miss them so much!
Don't know if you got a chance to see this, but Karen Jo @ Kitty Limericks did a very nice post about Max.

Thanks so much for the link to Karen Jo's page! I'll be emailing you soon.

I am so sorry to hear you lost a pet. It is so hard.

Brian said...

I really am sad about Max too. Your new friends Brian, Sascha, Gracie & Zoe.

The rug, this is what is says....
"The Cat, Day 751: My captors continue to torment me with bizarre dangling objects. They eat lavish meals in my presence while I am forced to subsist on dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of eventual escape...that, and the satisfaction I get from occasionally ruining some piece of furniture. I fear I may be going insane."

My mom doesn't like to leave us either, that's why she thinks "staycations" are the best. That is a really nice marker for Max.

Shelly said...

Dana--- That rug is so cool! Very funny! Where did you ever find it?

Cory--- Thanks. It's unfortunate that I can't take everyone with us when DBF and I visit his parents' farm, but I don't think anyone wants to go on a 4 hour drive! We go ever couple months, usually on holidays. My friend, Tonya, is really good with them. But Coal hisses at her, he doesn't like his mama to go away.

I know it's hard to leave the furbabies, but it sounds like you had a great time. That's a very nice marker. Thanks for explaining about Little Girl and the kittens.
