Guess Where We Went!

Hi everyone! Sorry I missed Artsy Fartsy Friday again. Last week was a really crazy week. This week is starting off the same way. Mom came and picked us up a little before lunch and took us to her office! It was a lot of fun! I guess there was a guy coming to look at the furnace (we're still trying to get things straightened out from that stupid inspector guy) and since it wasn't going to take him very long and it was almost lunch time anyway, Mom just brought us with her. We played a lot and ate some treats. We did a photo shoot for Mom. Most of the pictures turned out pretty good! That camera she has a work is fast! It was really hard to look away fast enough. Even Sasha got a few good pictures taken of her!

The last time I came to visit Mom at her office, she gave me a ball to play with and I had a lot of fun. As soon as I got up to Mom's office today I started looking for the ball again. Mom gave me both bouncy balls she had on her desk!! Well, here's a picture of the ball I played with last time:
And here's a picture of what both balls look like now:

Mom says I can't play with them anymore. The 2 things that are still round are things that made the balls light up when they were bounced and Mom said I couldn't play with those. Mom asked what I was going to play with the next time I came to visit. PUH-LEASE!! I can turn anything in to a toy and I can play fetch with anything! Dad got me to play fetch with newspaper yesterday while they were packing stuff. Grandma got really excited about it for some reason. She said something about fetching newspapaer for her every morning when we move in with her. I'm not sure about that. My mornings are pretty full making sure Mom gets to work on time so I don't know if I have time to play with Grandma every morning before work.

Mom and Dad have started packing big time! This weekend is 4th of July weekend which means Mom and Dad have 3 days off. I think they should spend all 3 days playing with me, but I guess moving is more important. I'm sure Grandma will spend all 3 days making sure I'm well taken care of. They haven't looked at any new houses yet and Mom says nothing new has come of over the weekend that they can afford. Last week they looked at a brand new house! Mom and Dad were kind of excited about the possibility of owning a house nobody else has ever lived in, but the people that own it couldn't come down much on their price and it turns out the house wasn't as good as Mom and Dad thought. After more research, they found out there was no air conditioning! There's no way we could live without ac, especially since all the bedrooms were upstairs! Mom said it looked like the people ran out of money before they could finish the house. There were no shelves in the pantry or linen closet, there wasn't a bar in the coat closet and it almost looked like the people almost had it finished and then remembered they forgot to build a laundry room. Mom said she was glad the people didn't come down on their price because that means they would have bought the house and then spent a lot of money finishing a bunch of stuff. Mom loved the kitchen though, but not enough to spend that kind of money.

Speaking of air conditioners, I'm going ot go curl up on the couch and enjoy our air conditioner now. Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

You were lucky to get to go to work with your mom and play!

I know you have lots to do, but I hope your dad and mom get some rest this holiday weekend.

Watch out for those noisy fireworks.

Woo - no air conditioning would NOT be good! Tell Mom you want the kind of house that has the air conditioning vents on the floor so you can lay on top of them.

Peanut said...

Oh my goodness I almost fainted. What a lovely lovely picture of you.
Sounds like things are still busy busy over there.

Hi, Kaos!
I'd love to go with my mom to her office! Good job with those balls! I know you will find something to entertain yourself next time you go there!
Sure that house was not meant to be yours!
Kisses and hugs

You need to find a few more balls to take with you to the office. We have a few tennis balls but that Louie has taken all the fur off of them. He doesn't like them unless they are bald..
Good luck on the house hunting this weekend...

What great pictures of you and Sasha. You did a great job on those balls. You will find a house soon and if not what better place to be than with Grandma.

Joe Stains said...

OMDOG you did a great job on that ball. I hate packing, it makes me grumpy when there are boxes around! I hope you don't mind it so much!

Huskee Boy said...

I am so envious that you get to follow your mom to work and then get to PLAY at her workplace!!
Wishing you and your family a lovely 4th July weekend... (and I hope you are ok with fireworks!)

Well, Kaos, it's probably a good thing your pawrents didn't get the house that no one had ever lived in. Our pawrents bought the house we live in now when it was brand new and it cost them a fortune putting in stuff like towel bars and toilet paper holders. Who knew the builders don't put that kind of stuff in? It was VERY 'spensive and time consuming. We hope you find the pawfect house soon!

That's nice that your mom takes you to work. You did some amazing dissections on those balls. Air conditioning is pretty important.
