It has taken me several weeks to get her to let me touch her so that I could try and fin her a home. Well this little girl won Nick over I guess because he suggested that we bring her in...lol. Of course Patrick was excited. Here he is with Sophie! She is taking to being inside well. We have to make her go out...lol Yesterday she was still hiding every time you made too much noise but today she has really come out of her shell!
Sophie has already started tormenting the birds. So much so that I had to put a large board on the top of the cage so she couldn't be seen by Jack and Jill...lol
Now on to my stressing!!! I can not believe that we are 4 days from Christmas! 4 Days!!!! Yikes!!! I am no where near ready. I am sure that is because I just haven't been in a very festive mood this year. I only got the main decorations up, just started shopping last week and sad to say I haven't even gotten cards sent out. I guess I will be sending New Years cards...lol.
So are you all ready? I am ready for it to be over! Bah Humbug I know...this is totally not like me. I love Christmas it is one of my favorite times of year! I usually go all out and rippin and raring to go in Sept. Nick always tells me I have to wait until at least Thanksgiving...lol
Well I better go I have tons to do today. I have way to many cookies to bake! Gifts to wrap! Grocery shopping to do...oh my!
