Hey furiends! It's my birthday and I'm 11 years old! Does that make me 77??? I don't feel old! I really feel like a puppy! Mom bought me some gifts and I still think she bought this for her because she loves Martha Stewart!!
I even got this cute little red, squeaky toy!
Mom gave me toy treats in the middle of the day! That only happens on birthdays!
They taste great and the bowl works! Did you know that red is my favorite color~
Even Lilly likes it!
Ariel is enjoying the bone and is driving Mom crazy with the squeak, squeak, squeak!
Well, I had a great birthday! Thanks for joining in on my day!
What a great picture, while shopping at one of the large outlets today for pet food, I saw this big beautiful Great Dane telling this cute little Frenchie a secret...I wonder what he was saying? Enjoy your day!
On Friday, it was take your pet's to work day, but seeing I work out of my house, it was a pretty easy transition...I had to only give a few helpful tips to my secretarial crew! The very first item of the day was to get the coffee! Then, get dressed, just in case we had to make a sales call!
I informed Smokes, that it is extremely important to always look busy, even if your not!
The calls started to come in and Mom spends most of the day on the phone taking orders and answering questions...reading other people blogs....(don't tell her boss that!)
It's time for a break, in the middle of Mom's day she will run errands or go to her Mom's house. In my Mom's world, anything could happen, so she said you have to remain as flexible as possible and don't worry about little problems, it's only the big ones that matter! So if a customer calls yelling, that hardly ever happens, she will do two things, solve the problem and not do business with them anymore. All of Mom's customer's are wonderful people and very pleasant to deal with. She only has "happy" customers and has had this rule since she started in sales, many, many years ago! A lot of people don't agree with her, but if you have to work, then you mind as well surround yourself with nice people!
She said when your on the phone with the clients, you must take a lot of notes so you don't forget anything. Always get their names too, just in case they give your wrong information...Mom said that happens a lot!
Buffy is still trying to solve the world problems and she doesn't know where to start...I tell her to start small and then move on to the bigger issues.
When I'm working, most of my pets hang with me in my office. The cats are asleep on the couch,
The dogs are all around me. Ariel will sleep under my desk and Buffy sleeps in front of the door, Mr.Chips and Winston will sleep on the doggy bed behind my chair. Smokes is usually in the other office. Mr. O'Riely is in my office also and when I'm talking on the phone you will hear him singing in the background. Sometimes, if I'm on a conference call I have to move him out of my office!
I hope you enjoyed our day at the office!
I hope your enjoying your weekend! Have a great day!
I have been trying to upload pictures and videos and my lovely computer is not cooperating! I have also tried to join some blogs and again, my computer won't let me! I can't stand that when this happens. I think I have to get a new computer because I have had this one fixed a couple of times but I think it is just old and tired! So instead of pictures today, I thought I would give you "Thankful Thursdays" !
I am thankful for all my cute pets, they make me smile when they are all yapping. The kids are screaming in the background "SHUT UP" and I smile and remember the days when I lived on the farm and I would yell the same and say " I will never own any pets when I MOVE OUT!!!" I remember my mother smiling at me the same way I smile at my kids!
I am thankful for all my bloggy friends! That is a given, anyone who blogs know how you can become friends with people from all the world! It is truly amazing, if you ask me!
I am thankful that summer is finally here! I can't stand the cold but love the snow and the dogs can't either with the exception of Smokes... I also love the trees and all my flowers in the yard. I have to say this year I think I have more weeds than flowers though!
I am thankful that my daughter is having a baby in October! YEAH!! We can't wait and have been getting everything ready for the baby. She is having a little girl! In our family it seems that all the girls are having girls, we have no boy babies!! I have to pick a name for me, now that I'm going to be a Grandma, (I feel so young)... I like Grandma, but my daughter likes, GIGI, what do you think? Does anyone have any cute names you call your Grandma? I have always called mine Grandmother...kind of formal, but that is what we did and the kids call my mother Grandmother also...
Well, I have way more things that I'm thankful for, but I won't ramble any longer!
Have a great day and hopefully I will be posting pictures soon!
I hope all the Dad's and Granddads had a great Father's Day! We have had fun weekend. The weather was perfect and the rain held off today for us. We went to a cookout at my mother's farm and I wish I brought my camera but I forgot it!
This is as close as it gets for getting my three kitties to pose! One of these days, I'll catch them all together! I hope you all have a nice week!
