This morning I had been woken up by one very uncomfortable Mercedes, who at this point is really feeling the pressure bearing down on her. Out we ventured with 3 squats of her own following. Of course once I had been out with her and back in, you know Lexus would also want to follow suit. *Sigh* I did manage to get back into bed until almost 6:00 am.
Rob accompanied me North of the Checkerboard this day. Not only did we go to our scheduled Doctor's appointment, we had also made arrangements to pickup a Queen Sized Pillow Top Mattress from a lady up that way. The mattress I had seen on the swap last Sunday had been 5 years old, and a duplicate from the 2nd residence they had built. They decided to sell the one and remain North for retirement. Boy oh boy, I sure wish I could retire with them, as their home is absolutely stunning as a Mansion on a hill top should be. The mattress came from a lovely clean home, and at the price of $100.00 I didn't even bat an eye or have to think twice about purchasing it from this lovely couple.
The price of a brand new mattress can run anywhere from $1,000 upwards to buy one as this we had bought. Our old one had seen its day at 15 years old by this time. This mattress we picked up this morning is new to us with LOTS of savings ....
Once the mattress had been placed, Rob put on his "Crabby Cabbie" hat and headed down South on the Highway to work for the remainder of the day. The old mattress remains in our hallway to be taken off to the dump tomorrow morning (hopefully tomorrow).
I spent some of the afternoon attending to, what else but .... more "Crabby Cabbie" stuff that needed my attention before I headed out to complete yet another "grid" on my flowerbeds. What a beautiful day it was and still is. The only thing is by the time early evening arrives so do the Blackflies ... oh my they can be vicious little monsters !!!
I know everyone is being as patient as we are for Mercedes' litter to arrive. This afternoon she was showing even more signs of the time being closer with the panting having had started, a bit more on the stressed side with jumping up on me and wanting to be cuddled more then usual, and "voiding" more often each time we are outside. The time is closer ... I can feel it, can't you?
Yesterday Lexus had a wonderful day with her Spectacular Six 2012 pup, Injaca, as well as did Bandit meeting up with him after a whole year almost having had past. Check it out yourself HERE how much fun they had themselves.
We are getting down to the nitty gritty with only 9 more days to Vote once every 24 hours ... YIKES !!!
As always, and forever, Thank YOU !!! from me and my ....
