and though I lose a friend, in the end you will know

I buy Suave shampoo for John and the children, because they don't need/deserve expensive shampoo, and since I've been having to shower downstairs I've had to use it. It works fine and everything, but the bottle SAYS lavender, and it SMELLS like bubble gum. Why?

Yesterday Ike was "sick," so I brought him home during church and finished reading "Marley and Me." It was pretty good, and I cried at the end because it reminded me of Skiver.

At the dinner table every night we go around and ask everybody what was the best thing that happened to them that day, the worst thing, and something nice they did for someone. Ike's best thing was "I got to go to part of church." I think he was trying to make us think he was grateful for being able to go to at least some of church, but all of it would have been better, but everybody at the table knew that what he really meant was that he was glad he only had to go to sacrament meeting. The worst thing that happened to Emmett was he had to sit on a small chair during primary, but he said it wasn't really that bad.

I would happily clean the algae and scum off the decorations in the aquarium, but it says to use a Top Fin Ornament Cleaning Brush, and I don't have one of those.

Aggie sits in the office closet most of the day, and then we take her out when we want her to go potty or take her somewhere. It's almost like not even having a dog. I think it might mean that she's severely emotionally stunted, but it sure makes dog ownership easy. Last night we went on a walk with my mom and my sister, and there were a number of ill-mannered dogs roaming the streets and causing us grief. I felt pretty superior that OUR dog was obeying all laws appertaining unto her.

Should we get bees now? It's one of the next things on the list, and I figure, why not? We'll check into it.

I heard you got a new dog! Congrats. From what Bry told me, she sounds like an abused dog. That's so sad to me. People can be terrible to animals. It's funny, but I always have a harder time in movies with that kind of thing than when people are mean to people. Don't know what that says about me.
