Well.....damn.....just - damn......

Saturday sure has started off with a bang -  I get up to an email from my mom about some nonsense posted on my son's Facebook page.  I go to his page, and apparently one of his friends that spent the night last night, got onto Steven's page and posted something about Steven that not only isn't true, but could be very upsetting to different people for various reasons.  Of course, his friends were already up and out of the house (they leave really early, like around 7am, after sleepovers and we got up around 8:30am).

Brian had a discussion with Steven, and Steven is pretty upset with his friends for posting what they did.  I think Steven has learned his lesson about leaving his stuff logged in where his friends can get to it.  Posting something innocent on someone else's page is funny sometimes, but this could have caused a lot of issues for him.

The other bang to my morning - I go to my blog page and none of the blogs I'm following are showing up.  Not sure what's up with that, I tinkered around with it and finally got them all to show up, but I don't know how long that will last.  I apparently have to eventually switch my blog over to Google+, but I don't feel like messing with a transition right now.'s raining today.  Steven is supposed to be having a band competition tonight that was postponed from last weekend due to rain.  Part of me hopes it's cancelled again, but part of me (the band geek in me) hopes that it still goes on because I want to see some bands play!

Headed to the mall here in a few - got to exchange a shirt from Hot Topic that Steven bought for me on his spring break last month.  I tried exchanging it last weekend and was told that I couldn't because it was purchased more than 30 days prior.  I didn't even think to look at the receipt until Monday - the 30th day had been FRIDAY, the day BEFORE I tried to exchange it.  Seriously?!!?  I was ONE day past the allowable exchange period.

I worked retail long enough to know how to play the game.  I mean, I could totally understand if the shirt was on clearance now, that the store would be out of something because they'd have to give me receipt price and then immediately mark down the shirt to clearance.  But it wasn't clearance, and the shirt I was going to get was going to cost a little more, so I'd be paying money into the store plus I was considering purchasing another item or 2.  Of course I called their corporate office, was given and apology and told they would contact the store manager to let her know that I would be in this weekend for an exchange. 

After the mall, I'm headed to PetCo - gotta pick up some anxiety drops for the boys so that they will travel to the lake nicely next weekend.  We've used all their drops up we got from the vet last year, and Petsmart doesn't carry these.  They have chewables and paste you can give the dogs, and you are limited to how many you can give per day.  These drops are 10 drops per dog, 3 times a day, or more if needed.  If Gabriel would travel as calmly as Dominion does, we wouldn't need these!

Oh and yesterday was sweet Gabriel's 2nd birthday! 

Okay, I'm outa here.  Gotta get my shopping on!  Have a great weekend!
