I have already started, have you?

I actually started in July when Target had their annual toy clearance. I spent a little over $100 and 90% will be donated to Toys for Tots and Angel Tree. I have to save some as birthday presents for a few special kiddos.

You need to check out BlackFriday for previews of the after Thanksgiving sales. I know it’s pretty exciting to drive around on Thanksgiving to try and find a station open to purchase the sales papers, but this is so much more efficient! Currently the Ace Hardware, Toys R Us Toy Book, Kmart Toy Book, WalMart Toy Catalog, True Value and Harbor Freight and Tools ads are posted with MANY more to come within the next couple of weeks.

One of the sites I use for Christmas shopping, that you need to check out, is PriceProtectr.com. This site lets you track price info about an item you want to buy using its URL. Right now I am casing two large items on Amazon.com, Buy.com, and another site. But that isn’t all folks, this site also allows you to keep track of a purchase after you buy, so if the price goes down, and the company has a price protection policy (usually 2 weeks to 30 days), you will be able to get the difference back! Amazing! I have already been notified of price drops on each item already, but there has to be better deals coming!

Is there a holiday shopping idea or tip you would like to share? Leave a comment!

B says they are unbecoming and I should have considered my options first. At least I didn’t pay for them, dear.

My leash burn is healing. I can finally walk like a normal human and I even went for a (very) short jog with Dakota this morning.

I went to the Dr. on Tuesday and got a Tetanus shot (in the arm!) because you never know what a leash will drag through when your pup is running crazy-like. Is a shot supposed to hurt three days later?

Four words – Dog Leash Rope Burn.

I put D’s extendable leash on last night so we could work in the front yard and frolic together without her running off. Well, we accomplished neither. She got frightened by something, maybe an acorn fell on her and she BOLTed with the extend-o-leash around her neck already.

In one of her three rounds around the neighbors yards she ran towards me, I told her to SIT! but she just wrapped that bad boy leash around my legs and kept going until she got connected under one of the neighbors vehicle tires.

Here’s the outcome of her escapade:

It hurt SO bad! I wanted to cry right when I felt the harsh sting around my ankles, the pain was all through my body, it was terrible! BUT, my 6 year old neighbor was there laughing because D really did look like a tard trying to get away from the leash following her. So, I laughed it up with her.

Today I am moving VERY slowly, I hardly slept last night - I bet the skin around your ankles are the most moved throughout any given day/night.

Anyways, that’s all she wrote – TGIF!
