Football Since it was so gorgeous out today (it’s about time!), we took the kids to the park where they tossed around the football and ran around the playground. Then we had lunch at Pizza Hut. I can’t tell you the last time I actually ate inside a Pizza Hut, but it’s been a very long time. We shared a family order of breadsticks, the kids got pasta, and Joe and I got personal pan pizzas. I only ate half of mine (Hawaiian-style) because those bread sticks are filling! I really wanted to try the cinnamon sticks but was way too full to contemplate shoving any more food in my mouth. In fact, I only had one little taco for dinner. It didn’t help that my reflux is still acting up.

After lunch we went to Petsmart and I came extremely close to getting the cutest little Chinese Dwarf hamster. Joe and The Boy were getting impatient with The Girl and me because we couldn’t stop watching this little hamster and all her acrobatics. She was hanging upside down and cracking us up. Her sisters weren’t nearly as interesting. I even had another cage in my hand at one point but then reconsidered because we don’t have much room for another hamster cage, as small as this one would be. Plus I felt like it would take my attention away from Peanut and I felt guilty about that. So as hard as it was, I had to walk away from little Popcorn (the kids named her).

I do plan to have several pets one day when we have the room, and there are a lot of different animals I wouldn’t mind owning, although not necessarily at the same time, including a dog, cat, rabbit, ferret, frogs, and a turtle. Joe might have a heart attack when he reads this!

    I know what you mean about wanting more pets. I’m really in love with guinea pigs right now, but I don’t have room for that. As it is, Ami’s cage is a bit neglected right now and really needs a good cleaning. Perhaps someday when I have fewer dogs, but I don’t want to think about that.
