Meet Kallie. Kallie is the baby of the family. She's 4. She's spoiled. And she's trouble. You might not think so at first glance. You might think she is a sweet little loving maltese/yorkie mix. You might. But you'd be wrong....
Kallie's favorite toy in the whole wide world is a pop bottle. Big ones, little ones, doesn't matter to her. If it's plastic and it has a hard lid on it, she wants it. If you are sitting on the couch minding your own business drinking a soda, Kallie is right there watching your every move. Sometimes, there is even a little bit of drool coming out the corner of her mouth as she watches you. Her eyes following every movement you make. Bottle goes up, Kallie's head goes up. Bottle comes down, Kallie's head comes down. Whatever you do, don't set that bottle down and walk away. Because it most likely will not be there when you come back. Adam discovered this the other day. Our dogs are allowed on the sofa, they sleep with us every night. BUT.....they are not allowed on the tables. Period. No.dogs.on.the.tables. They know this. They know they will be in deep hooey if they get up on a table. Or so we thought. Adam thought he was safe because he put the bottle away from the edge of the table. Adam was wrong! I caught this when I came into the room.
This bottle still had a good amount of pop in it so she was having trouble picking it up and carrying to her kennel. It also had the lid on, which was a good thing cuz we would have had pop all over the place otherwise! And I would have had to do something ugly to Adam for leaving an open container where someone could get to it. This is what happens to the pop bottle after about 15 seconds.
another 15 seconds later and this is what happens......
After that it just gets worse. The bright side of Kallie being addicted to pop bottle chewing is she will never have to have her teeth cleaned. Them babies are sparkly white! So now you know. If you come over for a visit sometime, don't leave your bottle alone, not even for a minute....ya never know what might happen to it!
I made a bit of progress on the Princesses. Doesn't look like much considering the amount of time I have spent on it but progress is progress and I'll take it. This was on the 9th.
this was as of ten o'clock last night. (click to make larger if you like)
So what are your plans for the weekend? Dan and I are headed out soon to pick up a bed frame for Abby. She doesn't like her antique bed and wants something new. Then we will scour the thrift stores for a head board we can paint black for her. After that there is mowing, cleaning, laundry and tomorrow the in-laws are coming back to take the aunt to the airport so they will be here. In between I hope to make some progress on the cleaning of my basement room that used to be my craft room/barbie room but was overtaken by my husband for his business he had. Business no longer exists so the clean up has begun. And we are talking a long hard clean up. But that's a story for another day....
Till next time friends and thanks for stopping in and posting comments!
Have a great weekend!
