So, today Jim and I went shopping for cars!
We drove to T.O. because we thought we could find a better deal there... we did!
We found a 97 Safari! WooHoo!!!! AND we bargained for it and managed to get it for a decent price! I was thrilled with ourselves for that! We aren't the worlds best bargainers and what we did worked for us! God is indeed gracious to us! :)

Our baby is more and more making his/her presence known. Kicks up a storm most of the time now. Sometimes s/he even makes my whole tummy move! It is so wierd! :) But cool at the same time! :)

Sassy, man, can I ever tell she hasn't been kept busy enough! She has been BUGGING the snot out of the cat all evening! Poor cat! Can't do a thing without the dog getting on his case! Ah well.... he'll survive until tomorrow! Tomorrow I plan to work Sassy hard on agility and freestyle lessons. make that little girl think!

it's another day

So yesterday was a fun day. Jim and I went up to see the folks, ended up going bowling with them and their church. Mom won the first go-round, Jim won the second! We didn't get the world's highest scores...but we sure had alot of fun. It was nice too, to be able to reconnect with some of the church people that I grew up with. We chatted at home with Mom and Dad in the afternoon. Mom felt the baby kick! That was fun. She says that i'm completely different in going through this pregnancy than my sister's were. That made me smile. But then again, we are very different people too!
Later on we went up to Elora Country Kitchens for a birthday supper for my brother Bill. We had a great time. I had a pork chop dinner that tasted great, Jim got the cheese steak and wasn't too impressed, it was very fatty he said, and cut too thick! :( but ah well, that's the way it goes eh! :) Today he is not feeling too well so that is not so nice for him. It is encouraging him to clean his office though as he has no energy really for doing anything else.

Anyways, I think that is it for the day! Not a whole lot going on in the way of news either so I've naught to comment on that I would even bother with. So....here's to yet, another day. :)

Brand new to this. Just going to try it out and see what I think.

So what is on my brain these days? Continued anger with the Ontario government over the Pit Bull Legislation. Of all the ill-conceived pieces of legislation! Banning three legal breeds and banning one that isn't even an official breed. And saying that all they are good for is animal research! ICK! Staffy's....dogs that in Ontario haven't even been known to bite people. Pit bulls... which admittedly...can be nasty dogs in the wrong hands...but then what do you do with all those that are nice dogs and have never caused a problem for anyone. Now these dogs are at the mercy of anyone walking by them that MIGHT have an issue with dogs. That's what this legislation really breaks down too!

Pitting neighbours against neighbours! Your dog barks... I'm angry at you for dumping garbage on my front lawn so let me call it a pit bull and let me see you just try to prove that it isn't! And if it isn't registered, and has remote similarities to a pit bull type...well guess what... you get fined, your dog gets destroyed or sent off for research purchases, and your dog hasn't actually bitten anyone...

What can I say...I hate the legislation and the fear that it generates and would love to see it defeated legally or not given royal assent.
