Super Bowl: I am enjoying the commercials and I'm in the room while Don is watching the game. Favorite commercial so far: Avocados from Mexico at the dog show.

When you are full, quit eating, and, if someone hands you more food, throw it on the floor for the dog. -IanBooks: I participated in a read-a-thon last weekend and broke a personal record. I completed eight books. Woot. Woot. Since that time I have completed one more.

Sheets: Don and I stood in front of our linen closet yesterday trying to find the right combination of sheets to place on the beds since we are expecting guests later in the week. First problem, we couldn't find any bottoms for the Queen mattress other than the ones we were taking off the bed to wash. Apparently the old bottom sheets ripped or were worn out and we threw them away but kept the tops. When we finally found a set that matched and looked good, it crinkled when we picked up the bottom sheet...you know the sound that old elastic makes when it is no longer stretchy? Next problem, trying to find matching pillow cases that were a) not super yellow (why does that happen?) or b) not for king size pillows that we don't own. You are welcome to stay at our house but I cannot promise a matched set of sheets. Ha!
The bully in our family: our darling, sweet cat, Demi, is showing her true colors as she stalks and terrorizes our dog. They play hide and seek and chase and then she turns on him with a big swipe with claws out. No fair.
