How to fix the winter blahs!


Yesterday morning Mike left for work and Beth and I looked at each other like -- now what???? Beth said, "Hey Rem, want to road trip?" I got all excited and said "You bet, just say when!" So Beth grabbed a BIG cup of coffee and I grabbed a toy and we hit the road! It was so much fun. No plans just took off. We ended up in Minneapolis. Beth went to a store and got some stuff and then I got to go to my favorite store -- Petco -- and I got a toy. We talked to a lot of people and laughed and had a great time! Beth stopped at a book store (imagine that?!?) and then we were on our way back home. She said she needed a Chai Latte so she stopped at this coffee house and said she would bring me a surprise. I thought I wonder what that would be....I don't drink coffee. I watched her as she went in and got her drink and then she came out and went into another store next door. Soon she was back with a bag and guess what was in it? A NEW SMOKED BONE! Yep, a brand new one! In fact she bought 3! But I was happy with the one. I chewed and chewed on it. About half way home I was out! I couldn't believe how tired I was! I slept the rest of the way home. Beth laughed and said I was snoring.... When we got home she told me to leave my bone in the truck, I kind of pouted but when we got in the house she gave me another new one! She is the BEST! When Mike got home I just about knocked him over because I was so excited to tell him about my day. He listened and said he thought I was one happy guy! I AM! It was such a nice day....just me and Beth....road tripping on a boring winter day. SWEET! Sometimes the unplanned days are the best!

Later -- Remington -- no more cabin fever here -- out!
