I'm Here

Hey everybody! Hope you had a great weekend. It snowed BIG time here yesterday and it's really cold today. It was a negative 10 degrees this morning when Mom and Dad left for work! When they came home for lunch, Mom's boot got stuck to the concrete cuz it's so cold out! We haven't been able to go out and play in it very much because it's so cold. It makes Sasha's joints a little sore and I don't like the "bitter cold" (that's what the weather man calls it). Hopefully it will be warm enough to go play in soon so Mom can take pictures of me playing in the snow and then I can email them to my buddy Mona for her snow post.
Mom made a ton of cookies this weekend and was not happy. Our oven is officially dead and it died before she was able to make the dog cookies! Can you believe that? Mom said it was good that we got the ones done that we're sending to my human cousins and my great-grandma and she does have a good point, but still! Mom and Dad have known the oven was going to not last much longer for awhile, but they've been trying to wait to see if there are any really good sales on ranges after Christmas. The one Mom REALLY REALLY REALLY wants was $1500 when they looked at it a couple months ago and Grandma saw it on sale last night for $1000 ($992 if she wanted the black one) so we're keeping our paws and fingers crossed that after Christmas it goes down even more because Mom REALLY REALLY REALLY wants that model cuz it has 2 ovens! Think of all the baking of treats she could do then!!! So far the burners on the old range are still working, but the one big one up front is not doing so good. We're pretty sure the range and the fridge are older than the house so we kind of knew we'd have to replace those when we bought the house anyway, but we were kind of hoping to wait awhile longer.
I just wanted to let everybody know that if I don't post very much this week, don't worry! I'm going to visit everybody's blogs, but if I don't comment, don't worry! Mom is needing lots of hugs and attention right now and leaks a lot. Don't worry about her, she's not sick, it has nothing to do with her job, she's not hurt or anything else that would need worrying about. Once Mom works things out and gets through this week, I'll try to explain what's going on. I know you all would be very supportive of her right now, but she's not ready to talk about it just yet. I haven't done my Christmas cards yet (thank goodness we signed up for email cards!!) and I haven't thanked everybody that has sent me an ecard. Hopefully Mom will feel up to helping me with those some time this week since there's only 10 days left until Christmas!!! WOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!
My nose and ears are cold again so I'm going to go curl up in Mom's blanket on the couch again. Why does it have to be so fricken cold? The sun is shining and it's 25 degrees!!!! At least it's a positive 25 degrees!

Hello! Come visit me at my blog: I create chaos, too! That's why my owners call me "Ripley"! I LOVE to play with my two "uncles" and drive the cats crazy! Tee hee!

What a bummer about your stove, Kaos! We hope your mom gets the one that she wants! She deserves it!
Stay warm!

Love ya lots,

Are you licking your mom to help stop the leaks, Kaos?

I hope she gets the model with 2 ovens because that would make everyone happy!

The Daily Echo said...

Awww....we're sorry Mom's feeling sad and what a bummer about your oven. Maybe Santa Paws can bring a new one!

Dannan and The Girl said...

Kaos, you are doing a furry important thing to cuddle with your Mom and help her out. Please tell her that we are thinking of her and sending her hugs and brown dog love. If she doesn't feel like talking about it, that's okay by us! We just want her to feel better.

Those ornaments from your last post were totally cute! The Girl will never make them, and we have no little ones in our family, so she won't ask for the instructions. But if we had some little ones (like a two year old boy, yum!), we'd ask for sure.

Stay warm, Kaos! I was outside today for a few minutes (because I LOVE to play in the snow! and I usually spend a lot of time outside anyway), but it was too cold to stay out long. I'm all cuddled up on a fuzzy mat right now. Wroo!

Brown dog kisses,

We sure hope mom gets that stove. 2 ovens means 2 different thinks can bake at one time.. Mmmmm treats in one and treats in the other..
Get out there and play in the snow...
We want pictures..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Kaos, what a great name, my Aunt Mabel is a black lab and she may be older than me but she is crazy. hehe

I hope your mom get her dream oven soon. But too bad that you will not get any home baked doggie cookies for Christmas.


Huskee and Hershey said...

Brrrr... It sounds very cold over your end! You and Sasha are more than welcome to come and stay with us anytime!
Big hugs from me and puppy kisses from Hershey for all of you!

Cheryl said...

Hello there! I need a new stove, too! My burners all work, but the oven doesn't ignite. I couldn't cook the Thanksgiving turkey, so our daughter did it for the first time! Maybe the stove that hubby wants to buy will go on sale, too! Wouldn't that be nice?

I wish I was there to keep you warm.
