My Meez

Ok...I finally made a Meez that's supposed to be me. (Notice how she's showing her purse since I've been told that I have a purse addiction!!)

Welcome Captain Jack

We have a new member in our family. His name is Captain Jack. Not sure that it's a common name for a Dwarf Hamster but Will likes it. Will's favorite movie is Pirates of the Caribbean and the main character is Captain Jack Sparrow.
I really like the little guy. I was the one who wanted to bring him home. One of my good friends had him and she got him in December for her son. He already had chinchillas and the hamster really didn't get much attention so she was trying to find a good home for him. I went to her house to get some scrapbook supplies and she was hoping that I would have brought the boys with me as she wanted to see if we would like him. I've always wanted a hamster and after playing with him for a bit and seeing how sweet he really is, I decided I wanted him for my pet. Imagine Anders surprise when I told him what I wanted!! He never knew of my secret desire for a hamster. He said he didn't care if we had one, so we went today to pick him up.
Will really likes him and has been holding him and putting him in his little ball to walk around. Hayden keeps calling him a bunny and thinks he's ok in the cage but when he gets out, he's afraid of him. Even Anders thinks he's pretty cute and holds him too.
Welcome home Captain Jack.

Garage Sale

Today was the garage sale. It was hot but fortunately not as hot as it has been this week. I always think people won't show up or things won't sell but I was wrong. We made $176.15. Not too bad!! Got to talk to some neighbors I hadn't seen in awhile and got a little gossip too.

Hayden was so funny. He took his little motorized 4-wheeler and went out of the garage and before I could get to him he ran this man over. He was a good sport about it and laughed and laughed.

He stood on the ladder and I got frantic as I couldn't find him and then saw him huddled up on the first rung. He was trying to hide from me and I could see him peeking at me from his under his hat. He also thought it was great to run through the clothes and jump out from behind them. I think he's turned into a flirt. Especially with women who sort of have the grandma look. He waved bye and blew a few kisses. One lady asked how much was he and I told her he was my big helper today and not enough money in the world was enough but she should come back when he's crabby and tired and I'm sure we could work out a good deal....ha-ha.

Will dumped me to go help our neighbor across the street with her yard sale. At least he came over a few times to say hello but I had to wait till Anders got home to have someone else there. We closed up shop around 1:30 pm and I went and took a nap. Sweaty and dirty I plopped on top of the bed and it felt so good. I haven't taken a nap in the afternoon in awhile. Now I can't sleep as I slept for a few hours which is why I'm writing at this time of night.

I think I'm going to go eat 1 cookie. I know it's 12:15 am but I REALLY REALLY want to go eat it. It's a small cookie so it shouldn't be worth too many Weight Watchers points. Oh the guilt over a cookie.
