    I think my bedroom tv is a 20" if I recall. I can't imagine a 40" either!

    Just went on a really fun shopping spree.


    I will regret this later. We are supposed to be putting all extra money into savings or paying off debt. :/

    But pretty shiny horse-y things!

    Telling someone they're WRONG WRONG WRONG is a great motivator! I wrote 3 essays in 90 minutes on my animal behavior exam.

    And no, I'm not worried about my professor taking it the wrong way. He's the awesomest professor that ever awesomed, he just chose a bad book. I taught him the term "brumation" last semester in an exam.

    I sold my first tug leads wholesale! Can't wait to see what people think of them. Actually, I'm really nervous to see what people think of them and I might not admit I made them until I hear good stuff. :rofl1:

    Long story short, I got pulled over today. I was taking my friend home about thirty minutes into the "boonies" and thought I was lost on my way home. The cop behind me thought I was drunk because I was driving about 10km under the speed limit whenever I passed a road sign so I could read it.

    Good news is, he told me I was going the right way and told me to relax and not to worry. I had explained how I was a new driver and was driving home after dropping a friend off and wasn't sure where I was going. All I can say is that I had never been so nervous in my life and almost shed a few tears.

    Also, Cali's new harness and leash came today!

    Once when I was young and had gotten a "new" (to me) car, I got pulled over because I was driving around at night without the lights on. It was a very urban area so I didn't even realize they weren't on. When the officer told me what I had done I blurted out "I thought they WERE on, I just got this car!!" and he let me off with a warning. LOL. I haven't thought of that in years.

    I think you should send me one so I can test it out for you. Especially if they're the ones you posted on Facebook. :p

    We are big movie people, so we love our tvs here lol!! Plus I'm 21 living at home so my room is like my "apartment" kind of. It's a converted bonus room and its where my sister and I spend a lot of our time either just the two of us or when we have friends over. I ended up finding a 40" LED tv (the guy said an LED tv actually has a much longer life) on sale for $399 so I went for it! I love it, I haven't gotten to watch a movie on it yet but the weekend is almost here!! Lol!

    Edit: Dang it, I meant to quote your post, Stardogs!

    My parents just bought a 42" LED SmartTV for under $300. It's huge, and has Netflix built right in lol. I might add that the ONLY reason they bought this TV is to make it easier to watch Doctor Who, and to be sure we have a good TV for when it starts again on March 30. I've well and truly converted them *evil laugh* :D

    In my room I just have a 14" laptop ;) :p

    It's a HiSense from Walmart. Not sure if it was on sale of it that's just the price it is. But it seems to be a very nice TV.

    Are you selling them at OTR?

    Let me know when you're ready to sell to the "general public"! I would love one!

    Forgot to post this the other day, but Zander's dental went well. It looks like they deadened the nerve instead of pulling the tooth (it was a big molar, and just a slab fracture). But there isn't any pain or sensitivity in that tooth any more, and there's a small hole there...so I guess they killed the nerve? His teeth are super perdy now, though! And bloodwork came back normal. :) Lots of good news there. He's also settling down now and less anxious. He's down from 68lbs to 64lbs, which while it's sad he lost that much in a week, I'm not overly concerned about it. It was weight he was desperately holding onto anyway, and now his weight (aside from lack of muscle) is actually pretty good now.

    I've also decided on a few things, and while it isn't exactly a happy or "good" decision in and of itself, I'm still looking forward to the hope and lack of anxiety it brings. It feels RIGHT. And I'm looking forward to getting myself back on track and really catering to what I want for a while. It won't be easy, but in the long run it will be worth it.

    So, I managed to get the day off work to go to this Hills nutrition seminar thing next week. Good news because I need these credits. And because... day off work.

    I send an RSVP email this evening and get a reply back asking what I'd like for lunch that day... chicken piccata or eggplant? Hills!! Why are you being fancy! It seems more appropriate to be served McDonalds or something. But yay free lunch!!

    And today was a wonderful day off! Lol slept in nice and late, took the pups for a walk, groomed the bejeesus out of Happy, gorgeous weather!

    LOL! Zuma and Zinga were my test subjects. If they can withhold Zuma's trial crazy tugging, they can withhold anything. :rofl1:

    Yup! Also, I know I won't ever do custom orders just because I really don't have time with both jobs, school, agility trials, disc comps and the other misc dog stuff I do and I won't be able to guarantee a turn-around time. However, I'm thinking about posting the ones I make on Facebook for first dibs.

    Teaching a rally class next session... I'm pretty excited for this. Maybe Frag and I will get back into it and I'll try with Recon, too.
