"It's How Much?" and other stories from a random Tuesday...

After court this morning, I went to Canton to retrieve this dresser that I purchased last month...



it is now safely in my garage and I'm happy to report that I didn't get ripped off!  Now I really hope that I can sell my other furniture on Craigslist soon.  I know I previously bought tables to use as nightstands on clearance at Pier One for 90% off, BUT I got the stupid Tuesday Morning brochure yesterday and they have bedside tables TO DIE FOR!  I'm not sure what I'm going to do about that yet...

In other news, I FINALLY got a call from the vet here in McKinney that Lola's medicine was in.  Just to back up a little, Lola needs to take this...


She has been on a 30 day course of Atopica before.  Our most fabulous vet in Wichita Falls came up with the idea of trying this since she cannot take steroids anymore due to her crappy pancreas.  Anyway, the stuff works pretty good, but it costs $60 for a 15 day supply.  Last week we went to the vet here because Fabulous WF vet was on vacation.  Vet here says he has to order it, but it will be in on Monday.  He mentions it's expensive, I say, "Yeah I know".  It doesn't come in yesterday, but finally does today.  I got to pick up my two boxes and they try to charge me $87 for each stinking box!  I say, "No way, I'm not paying that, I have purchased it twice before for $60 a box".    They don't budge or offer to sell it to me cheaper, so I say "Sorry, but I'm getting it from my other vet.  I hope you can return it." and walk out.

Luckily for us, my parents were headed to WF this afternoon, so they are picking it up for me there and will mail it. 

Finally in other news, I was talking to Abby this afternoon and part of our conversation was about Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.  This is Ree...


  If you don't know about her website you should give her a visit.  She is great for funny stories, great recipes, photography information, home and garden, etc.  She has a cookbook coming out in October and will be in Dallas for a signing in December and we are having a blog friends party and planning to go see her.

Anyway, after I got off the phone with Abby, I googled Ree because Abby was telling me about an LA Times article on her.  Then I found an article that tells us the name of Marlboro Man (her husband) and her punks (kids)!  If you want to know, click here.  I found it to be a very exciting part of my day to make this discovery because I wonder about it nearly every day when I read her site!  Also, this means that I am super lame-o and have a very boring life!  Oh well...

Can't wait to hear the conclusion to the bedside table dilemma. I hate it when I find something I like better after I have already made my purchase.

Thanks for the link to the article about Ree. I NEVER would have guessed that MM's real name is Ladd. He just doesn't look like a Ladd to me. Not that I've ever met someone named Ladd, but you know.

Ok Ladd would have never worked for the high heels to tractor wheels story. The only Ladd I know is Pepper's brother. I like the name but not very cowboy.

I love that her daughter's name is Alex, I wanted to name Emery that. I also loved Bryce...now I know why I like her so much (mean and the other 25,000 people reading her blog!). I knew when she was buying camera's and expensive printers to print her pictures on, that their had to be money some where. Can't wait to meet up for the cook book signing!
