aahhhh, friday . . .
after work i ran a few errands and got a few things i have been holding out on. i alocated some of my bonus towards these splurges. not that i have to explain anything, cuz it's my money and i don't have to share it!!! that's the first time i've ever got a bonus that i haven't had to share it with a guy - ha, ha! sooo, of course i got some scrapbooking stuff i've had my eye one (went a bit overboard i suppose), a gift for a friend, some new toys for my parrot, an oragami book and some paper so i can check it out, a dog training book, some books for my friends son, an i-o-u belated bday present for my sister and ink for my printer. i haven't been able to print any pictures in a while :( i also got a family dinner meal from boston market. rotissiere chicken, three sides, corn bread and a whole chocolate pie dessert thing.
we all just ate - dogs and birdie too. then i changed charlies cage around and hung all his new toys. i got him this one expensive one that is $26 but it will last him a LONG time. it's a big yellow puzzle box kind of thing that he has to stick his claws and beak in to fish out cut up pieces of leather. he loves to chew on those. right now he's scared of all his toys so it's kind of funny to watch him check them out. but parrots are smart so you have to keep them mentally stimulated with new toys or switching the toys around and in and out of the cage every few weeks. all his have been raggedy for a while cuz he chews them all!
so, now i'm full of energy and want to play with my new stuff. i'm going to scrapbook, scrapbook, scrapbook!!!! i've got get through the cruise still from back in march! so i have the whole summer and a few other trips too. also, i'm going to work with tristen on some tricks. hopefully will give him something to do other than chewing my stuff. oh, i also got a bunch more songs from iTunes and made a mix so i can blast music while i'm futzing around. it's katherine hepburn night on the Turner Movie Channel . . . so much fun stuff to do! i wish i didn't have to sleep.
