So on Saturday, I ended up getting a text from my friend Heather while I was at work, saying that she was going to be stopping by with a Christmas gift for Cody.
A Christmas gift for Cody? Really? My cat?
Sure enough, a little while later she stopped by and handed me this grocery bag. At first, I was a little confused, but upon first glance, I immediately knew what it was.
Can you tell what it is yet?
It’s a lifetime supply of fetch toys!
Heather said she ended up coming across these recently and knew that Cody would love them (will he ever!). The only thing we have to do is rip the pull tab off of the main jug top, but other than that, Cody is pretty much set for life.
As soon as I ripped the first one off, he knew exactly what it was and was ready for some play time.
As always, it only took a few rounds before he called it quits…I’m sure he’ll be back at it in a few hours when I hear the inevitable “kerplunk” of it next to my feet.
Needless to say, he’s very lucky to have such cool people in his life.
I was in the mood for a salad today. Well actually, I was really in the mood for broccoli cheddar soup from Panera, but that wasn’t happening so I stuck the next best thing.
It’s much easier to make salads when I’m at home and not rushed for time, so I decided to take advantage today and used up some veggies that were on their last leg.
Spring mix, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, red onion, dried cranberries, and crab meat, all dressed up with some Newman’s Own Light Caesar dressing.
On the side, I also had an apple, plus an unphotographed handful of Wheat Thins and a dark chocolate Adora disk.
Time to get back to work, folks!
Question for the Afternoon:
Were you/are you ever allowed to open any “early” gifts or do you usually wait for the big day?
Growing up, my brother and I were each allowed to open one present on December 23rd (I’m sure it was more for our parents’ sake than ours, as we were probably driving them up a wall with our excitement). It was something we always looked forward to!
