Merry Mary Monday - 10.11.10

One of the funniest things about Mary is when she is wearing clothes. Our hyperactive little bundle of energy is suddenly lazy, clingy, and cuddly when you put a shirt or dress on her. (Yes I said dress.) One day not too long ago I was trying to clean the house and I noticed that she was shivering. We had not yet turned the heat on like the weather wanted on that particular day. I put her shirt on her and then I couldn’t get her off of me. I thought she must be tired. Unfortunately her bedding and her blankets were all in the washing machine. I took her and put her in our bed under my covers.

I had been checking on her, but she eventually got hot or bored and wandered out of the sheets. I heard her ear flap as she shook herself, so I eventually went to check on her. I assumed she would be laying on top of the blankets. I was SO WRONG! There she was sitting on Pop Rock’s side of the bed where she had been searching for treasure. She had found proverbial gold in the form of an almost new pack of gum. (Mary loves gum as we figured out from previous treasuring hunting expeditions.) She had torn open the pack of gum, extracted one piece, opened it and was beginning to chew.

I managed to get the remainder (thankfully the majority) of the piece away from her. She got punished, but her breath was smelling pretty nice for the next hour.

What is the funniest thing your pet has done?


  1. Abi ate a Hershey's mint kiss once. Foil wrapper and all. But her breath was nice. :)

  2. That seems like it would hurt her teeth, but dogs are somehow able to eat things we wouldn't think of!

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck

"The Wedding Dress" by Rachel Hauck was a fun, fantastical read. When bridal store owner, Charlotte buys a vintage trunk at an auction she doesn't know that the contents will change everything in her life from her relationship with her fiancĂ©, her best friendship, even everything she knows about her family. How she reacts will change the future, but none of that can alter the past. 

I think what I like most about Hauck's writing (I've read a few of her other books, that I haven't reviewed) is that they have an element of magical realism which makes them somehow more believable. "The Wedding Dress" does not fail in this area and, in fact, make the book work in many ways.

Overall this book was a fun read. It didn't keep me on the edge of my seat, but there was enough tension to keep me reading. This is Christian fiction so there are elements of faith and inspiration which, of course, don't bother me, but might bother some readers. The characters…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.
