Spending the day with the in-laws...  
...We actually had a really nice lunch today at the in-laws house and though we broke our diets a bit, it was really worth it because the food was excellent. :) Sydney, as always, was the star of the afternoon - nosing her way around the house and running around sniffing all of Mark's relatives. :) I think they all enjoy seeing her more than they do us. :)

After lunch, Mark & I dropped off Sydney at home and headed for Costco to look at microwave ovens again (remember we were looking to buy a new one last year? - Well, that never happened...) And unfortunately, it didn't happen today either. Our old one isn't broken, but it's really old and probably on its last legs - so we're going to need a new one soon. Maybe on our next Costco trip. :P I did end up buying a case of Pho - which I've discovered is a healthier (only 3 grams of fat) and tastier alternative to some of the instant noodles I used to buy. :)

Tomorrow Mark & I are planning to go to the humane society. I wanted to see if Marvin was still there and if he was doing alright... I'm really sad that my co-worker had to give him up and my hope is that when we go tomorrow, he'll already have been adopted. :) That way I could give her some happy news when she asks about him. :) We're also going to check out the off leash dog park there so we can possibly bring Sydney back with us next time. :)

And I've been looking everywhere for discount codes for "Ten Commandments." I know there are some floating around and I'm determined to find them... The asking price for the tickets are waaay too high for me - even to see Kevin.

I'm glad to hear that all of you had a nice time at your in-laws house. :)

I hope there will be good news about Marvin - he is such a nice cat. "The off leash dog park" - here people have to use a leash when they have a so called "fighting dog" and in the park when the dog is taller than 40 centimeter and heavier than 20 kilogram. And, of course, in the city or when there are a lot people anywhere. Do you always have to use a leash?

At any case, I hope you will have a nice day. *Hugs*

I'm hoping there's good news about Marvin too - I know my friend is worried about him. :( There's a leah law here that says that aside from special parks like this one, all dogs must be on leashes (no matter what size, temperament, etc.) I've heard a lot of good things about this dog park and have wanted to take Sydney for a while, but I wanted to make sure that it wasn't too crowded and scary for her.

Hope you have a nice day as well, and hope Lauser feels better soon! *HUGS*

That is so nice of you to go check out the Humane Society for the kitty. I hope that he's been adopted into a good home.

Have a nice holiday!

I hope Marvin's been adopted too! What a wonderful thing that would be to get to tell my friend. :)

Hope you have a nice day off too! :)

I could totally see Sydney being the star. :) That's so funny.

I'm so thankful that my in-laws like her so much! :) They're always telling us, "It's nice that you can come over - but you ARE bringing Sydney, right?" :D
