Entry 361: Rainy Night

Tonight it has been raining with thunder, lightning, and we had a brief time of hail. Whenever it is a thunderstorm the dogs get scared and run to find Julie to protect them. As you can see below, tonight they found her on the couch.

Entry 360: Funny Dog Story

When we go to work we always have to put Bobby in his crate. We have to do this because he will make a mess in the house (either peeing, pooping, or both) and he will chew anything he can get his mouth around. Lance feels sorry whenever he has to put Bobby up, so when we go on short trips during the weekend we usually let Bobby stay out and put Maggie up. Everything in the house has to be bobby-proofed when he stays out though. Bobby-proofing the house means we put the trashcan up, the Kleenex box has to be put out of his range, and we have to clear the coffee table.

We went shopping on Saturday and as always Bobby-proofed the house. When we got home Lance heard the television going and turned to ask Julie if she left in on. Julie said no and we both wondered what was going on. Lance came in the house and couldn't believe what he saw; Bobby was laying on the couch watching television. Apparently he somehow used the remote to turn on the television and just sat back waiting for us to come home. There is never a dull moment with this dog.

Entry 359: New Shirt

Since we both had the day off today, we decided to go and have lunch with our friends Anita and Tyson. We went to eat at Chili's and Lance was surprised by a gift. There is a shirt that Tyson often wears and Lance has commented many times that he liked it, so they decided to buy him one. This is what the back of the shirt looks like and if you guessed that Hooker Headers is an auto part store you would be correct.

Entry 358: New Shoes

Julie recently got some new braces for her ankles that she wears everyday. They really help her ankles, but unfortunately they didn't work real well with her shoes. The shoes were a little small for the braces, so today Julie went shoe shopping (which is probably one of her favorite things to do). She ended up buying two pairs (a white pair of New Balances and a black pair of Nikes) and she is really happy with them.

The even better news is that Julie recently started wearing Lance's winter jacket that he really loved, but Lance got revenge by finding an even better jacket today. The jacket is really nice and Julie will never be wearing it.

Entry 357: Valentines Day (A Few Days Early)

Lance has Parent Teacher Conferences on Valentines Day, so we decided to celebrate a few days early. We began our celebration on Saturday with lunch at Julie's favorite restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory, and as always it was delicious. Julie ended up getting the cookie dough cheesecake and Lance ended up with the red velvet cheesecake. Afterwards we went to a mall to walk off the meal and Lance ended up getting a new Royals hat.

Sunday we continued the celebration. We went and saw the movie Just Go With It which Lance really enjoyed, but Julie didn't really like. Afterwards we went and had a nice lunch at one of our favorite Chinese restaurants. All in all another great Valentines Day.

Entry 356: Lets Try This Again

Lance has decided to try again to document our games with the Kansas City Royals on a blog. It didn't work out real well last year, but we are hoping this year it is more successful. You can check the blog here.

Entry 355: Snowmageddon Rescue

Lance was outside trying to shovel us out of Snowmageddon when he decided to take a small break. The driveway was about 3/4 done when someone came up with a tractor and asked if we would like him to finish it for us. We said yes and offered to pay, but he refused and said he just wanted to help us. The kindness of strangers never ceases to amaze me.
