I acquired Gabbie from my son's classmates parents who couldn't keep her anymore and I said that I would find a home for her and they said they only wanted me to keep her. That was fifteen years ago. At that time I had already been owned by a green cheek conure and a sun conure. My husband said yes and Gabbie was ours!.

she loves to hang out on her playgym in the bird room and in her sleeping box in the t.v. room and under mom's shirt.

She does not like her brother sun conure Kallie,because he always tries to attack her for no reason at all. And she can't stand getting her beak dremmeled down.

I get love all day long and I get to go out on the warm summer days in our stroller, I get homecooked meals warm in the winter and a cage to myself and playgym to stay out on all day long when mom is home. I love to snuggle under her shirt or clothes which I just love.

She gets up early in the a.m. and starts yelling "hello, Hello" and she won't poop in the cage at all..

If you yell hello loud enough you will get what you want..

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
Mom took Jennifer for her check up today. It was just a yearly check up but Jennifer went to a new doctor. She had to get ther early to get the paper work filled out and then the nurse did all the stuff and then she had to wait for the doctor since she was a bit late. Then she had to wait to get blood drawn. It was nearly 3 hours when she was done. She took mom to Taco Del Mar for a taco salad before she had to go to work. Mom was gone a long time!
Mom got very tired sitting there for so long. She doesn't like to sit in the mornings since she was tired from work and sitting just makes her sleepy!
Ian got off late so needless to say we are behind on everything again today! I will get the story posted in the morning when mom gets home. I hate doing this but mom really needs to get some sleep!
We just loved looking at the pictures from Nana's house. What spectacular colors! I bet it feels so warm and cozy there. Did the phone get fixed?? We hope so!
Tomorrow mom and Jennifer will be going to the Dollar Store. Neither Ian or Jennifer have to work tomorrow so they will go early and then mom can sleep! YAY!! She is still not sure about what days she will have off next week! Hopefully she will know by tomorrow!
Come perch with me sweetie! We can have our snack and read our story together! I can't wait to see you!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~~
It has been another quiet day which is wonderful. Mom goes back to work tonight. She wishes she could stay here with us! She might have 3 days off next week but she is not sure of her schedule yet. The assistant manager wrote it and didn't know that mom and the manager had agreed on Tuesday night and Wednesday nights off as mom regular schedule. He has her scheduled off on days when there is clearance to do. The other assistant told mom to work when ever she needed to but mom will check it out with the manager first.
We got the snack bags ready for the week and cleaned up the kitchen. Mom had my play cage cleaned out when I woke up so I'm spending time getting it decorated again. I have already taken a shower and am now working on a new toy.
It sounds like it's crazy at Nana's house! Goodness that painter sound like a messy person. That is just not right!! He should not be messing things up. He should clean up after himself too. I sure will be happy when it's all done and Nana can have some peace and quiet and a neat house again! What colors did Nana pick? I hope she can find the curtains she wants too. Look online. If there is a store that carries what she wants near by you can have them delivered to the store or sent to Nana's house.
Haven't heard from dad today so we don't know if he has delivered the load in the south and is heading west. He said he would be here Monday but that always depends on if he gets a load heading this way! He'll be here soon either way. He can spend some time taking care of the needy cat and dog and I can have mom all to myself!Hehehehehehehe
Ready for a story?? Come perch with me my friend! I can not wait to see you! I just love being able to spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Dearest Gabbie~
It was a ice day even if we didn't do much. Mom got the laundry done this morning and then cleaned up the computer desk. We got some things ready to go to Goodwill. Mom took Jennifer to work and then when she got home her sister called. Her sister was on the phone for a long time. McKenzie decided she does not like mom being on the phone. She was jumping on mom and doing a lot of barking! Merlin decided since McKenzie was getting some attention that he needed to sit on moms lap! It was crazy!
Aunt Theresa called after mom got off the phone with her sister. Aunt Theresa and the flock are doing well. It rained down there quite a bit but the sun came out and Aunt Theresa said it was up to 80. I guess a lot of places are getting warmer but not here. We are in the 60's and that is just fine with us!
Mom is going to go over to Walgreens tomorrow to get Purex laundry soap. They have it for $1.99. They have it every once in a while on sale and mom buys a bunch of them. You always need laundry soap. She is going to need to get Merlin some food also.
It's time for our story so come perch with me! Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It was a pretty good day. It was quiet but that was a good thing. It's our weekend now and mom is very happy about that. It was a rough week and mom is glad it's over.
The construction guys came back today to put the barriers down the middle of the street. They got a lot done and will probably finish tomorrow. They had all the concrete barriers on 2 big flat bed trucks and put them down and then painted them. Looks nice since it's all so clean. When they get done with the barriers only the line painting needs to be done. I'm just glad I won't have to listen to any more beeping trucks!!
We watched a movie tonight. It was an action movie called Sahara. Lots of action and lots of stuff blowing up! I really loved it. I loved the popcorn and being with the family!
Don't know what we are going to do on our weekend. Lots of chores to get done so we will probably be doing that.
I am ready to read our story so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!

  Hello Dearest Gabbie~
I am happy to say that today was much quieter than the previous 2 days. We got some laundry done and cleaned up the kitchen. Mom took Jennifer to work and then picked Ian up. Jennifer will be off in an hour or so. There is only half days at school this week so they have extra kids around. Don't know why since there are only 20 days until summer vacation.
Mom got the ad for Sunday finished up last night! Sometimes it takes more than one day to do it. There were coupons to hang which is not difficult, just time consuming. Mom told the manager they were on the paint desk but they were still sitting there when she got in last night. They had put out a bunch of new things also and there were no signs on them. It's typical but mom is just happy she got it done. Tonight she will help with the store audits since the lady who does that is still working shorter hours so she can take her husband to get wound treatment. This should be the last week for that also!
Tonight is moms Friday so that is a great thing!
Mom talked to dad this morning and he is still in New York. He thought he was going to get a load to Ogden Utah but the load he had to deliver wasn't going to be unloaded in time to pick up the load for Utah. Dad ended up getting empty early so he might still get the load to Utah. That will put him closer to home! He should be here by Monday but don't know where he will have to go first!
We don't have any plans for our weekend but there is lots to be done around the house! Like your mom, my mom plans things and then get interrupted!
Come and perch with me and listen to the story I have for us today! It's really cute and I think you will like it!
Remember that I love you my friend, now and always!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It is another one of those days where mom has not time to help me with my notes!!!
She drove Jennifer down to her dads house this morning. They stopped at the market down there. It's the one with the awesome bulk food department. Mom got me some nuts and dried fruit. They got some pretzel, crackers, raisins and oatmeal. Ian got a bag of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans! That's Ian!hahahahaha They took way to long shopping and were all hungry by the time they were done. They went to the Wendy's across the parking lot to get some lunch! McKenzie was with them. It's a cool day so she was okay in the car by herself. Mom bought her a plain hamburger and McKenzie loved it!
Traffic wasn't horrible on the way home but it's always busy by the base on the weekends.
I will catch up with notes tomorrow and get our story posted as soon as mom gets home from work. She is going to have to go pick Jennifer up but that won't be until near noon sometime! Mom didn't know she was going to pick her up until she dropped her off and Jennifer told her she would call to see what time mom wanted to come get her!!
Remember that I love you my friend! I am so blessed to have met you and to have you as my friend!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It was a pretty nice day here. Sun was out and I got to enjoy that for a while. Mom took Ian to work as soon as she got home so I had to wait a few minutes for my waffle!
Mom came home and walked McKenzie and then fed her and Merlin. I got my waffle and then mom cleaned up the kitchen. We went on Facebook for a while but sitting still was making mom sleepy. She didn't get much sleep yesterday.
She played with McKenzie for a while and then we did a recipe over at the KB. We sure are loving getting all these cool recipes from our friends. We love the Cha Cha Cha Cherry Cake. Mom will be trying that one.
Jennifer was only at work for a short time. There weren't a lot of kids there today and the one baby who was there went home early because he was running a fever. Mom picked Ian up and then got Jennifer. Everyone is home now so mom is going to sleep!
I have a story ready to go so come on over and perch with me. I can't wait to see you and spend some time with you!!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It was really pretty this morning but now the sky is getting dark and I think we are going to have rain the rest of the day. It was 47 when mom took Ian to work this morning so they still need jackets in the mornings. It should be up in the 60's later.
We are finishing up laundry which is pretty boring. Mom says is necessary! I suppose!
My play cage was all cleaned up this morning when I came out so I am going to have to spend the rest of the day redecorating it. I don't understand why mom can't appreciate how hard I work at making all those lovely piles of wood!! I know she wasn't too happy about me trying to feed the puppy again. I figured that if those pellets are good for me they have to be good for the puppy too! Right? I am keeping the good stuff for myself I must admit, but McKenzie seemed to appreciate what I shared with her!
Mom put Alice in Wonderland on for me to watch. It's a pretty old movie because I don't see Johnny Depp anywhere and there is no CGI. Guess I'm spoiled from all the new special effects out these days! I don't like movies where people are dressed up as animals either. It's very creepy! Think I will just skip this movie. Not enough action to keep me occupied and the music is lame too!
Mom gave me a bowl of chop so I've been munching on that. Dad called and he is on his way back to upstate New York. He's been up there a couple of times this month. He had to get over to Walmart and get some food because he is nearly out!
We think Tracphone is what Nana would want. They have minutes that you add to the phone and if you don't use them they roll over to the next month. The phones are near 10$ each and there are gift card like cards to add minutes. Mom will asks the guys in electronics at work how it works since they sell them there. We couldn't find any programs for free ones for seniors. I think Uncle Chuck pays $9.99 a month for his but not sure what kind he has!! We will ask him about it also. It would be nice for her to have one and keep it on her during the day in case she needed help and couldn't reach the phone.
I will see you very soon for our story!! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!! It is the best part of my day!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
We didn't do a whole bunch today but it was still a nice day. We are still doing laundry but there is no rush on that. We got to spend some time watching House Hunters so that was nice. It's been a while since we sat and watched some TV. We love House Hunters even though some of those people are real whiners! It's cool to see what you can get in different places. We know that we could never live in San Francisco, Boston or New York! Way too expensive for us! We weren't planning on moving there anyway!hehehehe The show is fun to watch. Got popcorn too!
Tomorrow mom is going to have to take Ian to work in the morning and then get my play cage cleaned up before I get up. She wanted to get it done this morning but i wanted to get up early and get that waffle!! It was good. Mom put new toys in my play cage so I spent the day chewing them up! I also spent some time throwing food out to McKenzie.
We will get some stuff done around the house tomorrow. It will be okay since we will still get to hang out together!!
It's story time so come perch with me sweetie! I can't wait to spend some time with you! Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It has been a long day! Mom only got a short nap so she is very tired now. She is off to bed as soon as she take McKenzie out for another walk.
It was a pretty day at least. Tomorrow the rain is coming
back!
Speaking of coming back, guess who just showed up! The construction guys!hehehehehehe They have the left lanes on both sides blocked off so they must be going to put the cement barriers back in. That is good because people are turning all over the place with them gone! Guess the radio will be turned up tonight! I'm use to it at this point so I won't have trouble sleeping!
Did Nana get the phone working? I take it she does not have a cell phone. I think she can get one free of charge to use in emergencies. I know Uncle Chuck has one. You could probably find out from AARP.
I have no idea what we are going to do tomorrow. Jennifer has to work but Ian is off. The bathrooms need to be cleaned and we have some laundry to get done also. I think mom wants to get a few meals cooked also.
It's time for our story so come perch with me!!! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you! I think you are going to like the goofy story I have for us!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I'm really sorry I didn't get to leave a better note yesterday. Mom is trying to get rest to get better! She felt a bit better yesterday but unfortunately moms eyes started bothering her last night at work. She had her drops with her and used them. They have been waxing the floors for the past two nights so it may just be the fumes from that. Mom stayed as far away as she could but had to walk through the area to get to the office. Tonight the store is closing two hours early so that the system can be shut down for updates. It won't be back online until 4 am so mom will be helping the freight guys.
Mom is trying to rest during the day but I think that "I need to rest" translates to "let's chase the cat" in dog language. I have been a very good nurse and sit right next to mom and keep her company! She only has tonight and then it's our weekend again! YAY!
They have a bunch of lanes blocked around here today! They finish the paving and now are using jackhammers out there! They are putting in the man hole covers. I guess they just pave right over it and then dig it up later. Dad called and mom told him that she thinks they like that corner since Starbucks is there and they have free WiFi! They can play on their smart phones and get coffee too!hehehehehe
I will see you soon for our story! Can't wait to see you! I am in the kissing booth for the next 2 weeks and I hope you will fly down and spend some time with me there! Nothing I like better than spending time with you!
Remember that I love you now and always my sweet friend!

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
Sounds like Aunt Rose, Nana and Shiloh had a very full day! They got some great buys too! Mom and Ian went down to Walmart this morning and they were gone a very long time. Saturday is not the best day to go there but since Ian and Jennifer are both off, one of them can stay with McKenzie while mom goes. It's too warm to leave her in the car now.
Mom got more of the tropical dried fruit mix. We all love it! I get some too!! Jennifer put it into snack bags for mom while mom took McKenzie for a walk and took the trash out!
Mom ran into a few neighbors while she was out and they are just learning about the rent increase. They must have started it last July and since their lease is due now, they didn't know. Mom told them that all the apartments around here were about the same price. Where we live is a bit less expensive. Mom feels bad for them because she remembers what a shock it was when we got our notice. At least we have 4 people working and splitting the cost.
Mom still has the pink eye but it's not nearly as bad. She found out that some other women at work have it too! They work in different departments and the only thing they have in common is they all use the computers to print signs. Mom has wipes in her file drawer and wipes down anything she touches especially now! She doesn't want anyone to get sick because of her. She never thought about wiping the stuff down before she uses it!! She is going to do that now!
I hope it all works out for Anthony and Nana. It's good that she is not alone but Anthony should pay her something for living there. The utilities will be more since there will be 2 people in the house now. We figured Nana would be feeding him since she is such a lovely, caring woman!! She is the best Nana in the whole world! Well, that what I think!
I will be posting the story in the morning. Since Ian and Jennifer are both off today mom can get to bed early and they can take care of McKenzie!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

  Hello Dearest Gabbie~
Mom is doing okay. She ended up staying home last night because when she woke up the left eye was all red and itchy. She is having a hard time remembering not to rub them! She is washing her hands constantly to make sure she doesn't spread the germs! She has wipes for the computer keyboard and door handles, etc. She keeps some in her file drawer at work also. Don't want someone else to get sick because of her!
She probably got the cold from Ian or Jennifer since they both had it. Moms is just a bit different. She has been through this before.
We are just getting some laundry done and we have to clean out George and Gracie. Dad bought the wrong kind of filters and they are not lasting very long. Mom will get more next time she gets down to Walmart. She got their food over at Safeway but they don't sell the filters there.
Your mom is so sweet to want to help my mom! Mom appreciates it so much. She is doing okay really! She just doesn't feel to energetic right now.
It's a lovely day and I have been enjoying looking out the window. The gardeners are here but they started at the back today so they won't be up here for a while. It takes them the whole day to do the complex since it's so big. McKenzie loves watching them mow! Neither of us like the blowing thingy but that doesn't last for too long!
I will see you soon for our story! I can not wait to spend time with you!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
I am sorry that we will not get our story done today. Mom has pink eye. She has had a sore throat for a few days but it's not horrible. It's probably strep. She has had it before and it will clear up quickly. Her eye is itchy and runny. She spent the morning laying on the sofa with McKenzie trying to lay on top of her! It was pitiful!hehehehehe I stayed right by her and chatted with her so she knew she was not alone.
She has to take Ian to the doctor now and then pick up Jennifer and then she'll get some sleep before work. She is hoping the eye is much better by tonight. If not she will pull her glasses out of the drawer and wear them. If she is still having problems tomorrow she might just take a vacation day since there really isn't any work on Friday night.
Remember that I love very much sweet Gabbie!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
Well we certainly didn't expect BC to go down last night. It really would be nice if they let us know. Ian says that Service Unavailable page usually means they are doing maintenance on the site. Since they can automatically send notices about someone blogging you on BC I would imagine they could send a note saying the site will be down. Guess being polite is really not a priority with many companies anymore.
We spent the day doing things around the house. Mom is getting laundry finished up now since she goes back to work tonight. Yesterday we got the shelf liner in the linen closet and filled the little baskets we got. Mom put tape, glue and general office stuff in one and then wrap and notebooks in the other. It looks very nice. Even Ian commented on it! We also found more things to donate.
Mom still has the bathroom to finish cleaning. McKenzie was a bit rowdy yesterday so mom only got part of them done. Ian is off today so he can keep McKenzie company while mom finishes.
A trailer is okay to live in as long as it is in good repair. I think Anthony will have to find out how much they charge for rent of the space. He will have to pay his own utilities too. Just wish they had more smaller places to pick from but no one seems to have them anymore. I guess since they can charge more for a one bedroom they don't bother with the studios. Mom had a studio when she moved out and loved it. It was just one room that included the kitchen and a bathroom. It was lovely for mom and it was all hers! She didn't have to share the bathroom with anyone! She said if she wanted to take a bath at 3 am, she could without disturbing anyone! She moved out of it after she and dad got married. Sometimes she misses it!
Mom has an ad to take care of tonight. Some of the signs got tossed out with the recycling but mom can make them so it's no big deal. Everyone seems to get a bit testy when they are asked to cover other peoples work so mom figured it was easier just to take Monday and Tuesday off and be there for the ad.
It isn't very big and mom will have plenty of time to get the weekend stuff organized and ready to go! Next Monday they are closing the store at 9 pm. It usually is open until 11 pm. They are shutting down the entire computer system there to do updates so mom told them she would help with freight or back stock. She won't be able to do any of her work until they are finished and doesn't really want to waste a vacation day on it. She will be taking time off in June so that she and her sister can drive down to Portland to see the brothers! I don't get to go!!!
I will be posting the story soon so come perch with me! I can not wait to spend some time with you sweetie! I hated missing last night!

  Hello Dearest Gabbie~
It was a pretty good day. We didn't get too many chores done because mom was reading. When not reading she was trying to keep McKenzie away from Merlin! Mom had to put Merlin in the bedroom for a while but he just sat at the door howling. That got me to yelling!hahahahaha It was pretty loud around here today.
When mom picked Jennifer up they stopped at Walgreen and got more snack stuff. They got nuts, dried fruit and some gingersnaps. They came home and put it all into snack baggies so it's all ready for lunches. It makes it so much easier that way!
Tomorrow they are going to do some chores since laundry and kitchen cleaning is all they got done today! Mom got the dishwasher run so they will put the dishes away tomorrow. They are still to wet to do it tonight!
I have a cute story picked out for us so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and get to spend some time with you!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It's been quite around here so far today. Mom got her clothes washed. Ian and Jennifer needed to do laundry yesterday after mom finished the towels.
Mom was busy with McKenzie this morning. She just won't leave Merlin alone. Then I decided to take a shower and she came leaping at my cage! Mom pulled her back and told her no yet again! She thinks I'm playing some sort of game and wants to play too! Mom took her to the other end of the sofa and stayed there while I finished my shower.
McKenzie keep whining to go out so mom has been out 5 times since she got home. All but one time she really did have to go but this last time she just stood there sniffing the air! She is so goofy. Jennifer is out here now so McKenzie is sitting with her.
Did your mom get to go out for Mother's Day? We don't really celebrate it. Ian will want to do something but he doesn't get off work until 2 and mom will want to go to bed after he gets home.
We talked to dad a bit ago and he is in Ohio. He is one his way to Syracuse NY. The load he has goes to Canada but the company uses Canadian drivers to pick it up at the boarder and deliver it in Canada. Dad has an enhanced license so he can go into Canada but their gas got so expensive that the company figured it was cheaper to have the Canadian drivers deliver. Dad said it was near 6$ a gallon up there! I wonder why? We are at $2.25 but we have taxes on the gas that other states don't have. We do not have a state tax so they add taxes on to other things to make up for it!
I have a Mother's day story for us so come perch with me and we can read it together! It's really cute and I think you will like it! Can't wait to see you and spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

Mom went up to the Dollar Tree and got the shelf liner and baskets! She spent too much time pulling things out to the closet and now she has to head off to bed. Since it is Saturday she will be leaving early tonight!
Couldn't miss telling you how much I love you! Come perch with me and I'll read the story to you! It's all about vegetables!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~~
We got part of the closet cleaned out today. Mom saw some bins and shelf liner at the Dollar Tree so she is going to go back and get those. We got the trash out of there at least! Dad is really bad about keeping old boxes.
Mom took Jennifer to work and then got my notes done. She went to pick Ian up a couple of hours later and stopped at PetCo. McKenzie got some food and treats. Mom had coupons for them. While they were looking at the treats a lady from Science Diet came over and told mom there were coupons. Mom told her that she had them but the lady said she has a whole sheet of them that are good until July! We have more coupons! Mom let McKenzie pick out 3 new toys. 2 of them have squeakers! Drats! They were half off so I guess I can't complain. The way this dog chews up her toys there is no way mom wants to pay full price for them. She did buy her a new rope since the old one is shredded!
Mom saw the little Blue Quaker again. She looks so sad! She is the only bird except for the budgies. They want $900 for her and if mom had it she would be here now. She is very cute so mom is sure someone will buy her.
Dad is in St. Louis taking a break. He said he was fine since there was a McDonalds next door and free WiFi. He is headed south after this.
Mom goes back to work tonight. She will probably only have to work 3 nights and then get a weekend again. There is a 3 day ad that starts next Thursday and it looks too big for the other lady to handle it alone so mom will go in on Wednesday night. She will have to work 6 days before the next weekend but that is okay!
I have the story up so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you my friend!
Remember that I love you now and always!

Oh it's so late! We tried to get your blog and the story done before they left for the movie but ran out of time! It was a very long movie and mom did not realize they would be getting home so late. She stopped at Jack in the Box to get Ian and Jennifer something to eat.
Mom let me and McKenzie get up for a while and made us a waffle! Now McKenzie can't stay away and I'm grumbling to get back to the night cage!! We are not use to late nights.
The movie was very good. Mom has always liked Captain America. She use to read those comics when she was a kid.
We cleaned up the kitchen today and did more laundry. Mom will have to do her laundry tomorrow. I guess the kitchen is one of those places that needs to be cleaned everyday!! Tomorrow, or later today I should say, we are going to straighten out the pantry. It's very messy again and mom can't find anything. I don't understand how that happens!
Mom and Jennifer went to the Dollar Tree before Jennifer went to work. Jennifer got more of the fabric baskets to organize her things. Mom got more snack stuff! She got some peanut butter cookies and I really liked those. They come in a very small package but since they are only a dollar they are still worth it.
Mom never went to the market today so she will have to stop by tomorrow.
The construction guys are out there again tonight and right in front of our building. Mom had to cut through the Safeway parking lot just to get into the building. I really hope they are almost done! The radio really helps though.
I'll post the story in the morning since mom needs to get me and McKenzie back to bed!
Remember that I love you my friend!

It was a much quieter day here but it did get busy this afternoon. Mom is off tonight so we can get some sleep and just relax. Ian has to work tomorrow morning so mom will get up and take him. She wants to get everything done with McKenzie an hour earlier. She and the kids are going to the movies tomorrow night and McKenzie is going into her crate an hour early so mom wants her ready for it! Mom will take her out when they get home and take her for another walk before they all go to sleep.
Dad called from Iowa tonight. The truck had oil so he was in the shop most of the day.
Mom got a bit of sleep this morning. We only had the kitchen to clean up today so that was good.
We talked to Aunt Theresa again today. Her little macaw Emmy laid eggs!! Oh no! She'll sit on them for a while and then figure out they aren't going to hatch and lose interest.
McKenzie kept wanting to go out this evening. She just wanted to go out and see if any of her dog friends were out there. Mom can't ignore it since we don't want her to have an accident in the house! Still drives mom nuts!hehehehehe
It's about time for me to get the story posted so come perch with me sweetie! I can't wait to see you and spend some time with you!

I am rushing to get the note done and our story done too!! The inspector showed up a little while ago. Mom brought Ian home and then went over to the market. They were at the building across from us when she left to get Ian. She doesn't like anyone coming around me when there isn't anyone here. Ian stayed with us. The guy just came in and opened the windows and turned on the faucets and that was it! He didn't even check out the water heater after mom did all that work. At least it's over for this year. If they HUD here then the inspection will happen every year.
We did laundry today since mom was out of clean clothes. She is going to work tonight since she was off last night. It is only one night so it will be okay. She is off for the next two days so she will still have her weekend.
Dad called a few minutes ago and he is in Rock Island! That is where Uncle Chuck lives! Too bad dad can't go visit. That would be cool but he has to go pick up another load in Iowa.
We talked to Aunt Theresa today and mom told her your mom said hello. Hopefully Aunt Theresa will be able to talk to your mom soon!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~~
It was such a busy day here and mom is not done yet. She took tonight off so she can finish up. She got to rest a couple of times but has been up since last night. She won't be up for too long after McKenzie goes to bed and then she can get some sleep!
Ian stayed home today because he felt awful. His head is all stuffy and he felt icky. He has been there nearly 3 years and never had a sick day! He is feeling better tonight!
The road construction guys showed up around 8 pm. It was warm up here today and mom opened the windows and put on the fan but we won't sleep with the window open since the noise will be too much!!
It's time for our story so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you my friend and spend some time with you!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
The alarm clock worked fine last night! Mom had to reset it so that is probably why it didn't go off. She should pay more attention to that since she sometimes has to change the time. She set the phone alarm just as a back up. Having 2 in the room is a good idea! Mom will look at clocks when she has some time.
She is very tired today and having a hard time getting notes done. She just can't concentrate!hahahahahaha
McKenzie was acting up this morning. She just seemed to want to get into trouble. She kept crawling under the computer chair and chewing on it! Mom kept getting up and moving her but she would come right back! Then she went after Merlin. Mom put him in the bedroom since all he does during the day is nap! He was banging on the door and howling up a storm! Mom let him out and now he is sleeping by the window!
Jennifer came out a while ago and is listening to a book on tape. She likes those. Mom tends to forget to listen so it's better is she reads it!
I hope mom and Shiloh have a fun day together. I think it would be great if Anthony got an apartment in her building. It's probably going to be easier for him to handle and he won't have to put up with the unstable roommate!
It's story time so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~~
I am so sorry about last night! Mom really messed up! She tried to get online at work with her Kindle but she doesn't know how! She is such a dork!
She is going to set her cell phone alarm today. If Ian had been awake he would have woken her up. Jennifer didn't realize it was that late! Good thing she made it to work on time!
She has the weekly ad tonight but it's not big. The guy who took over bed and bath is off but they are sending the girl they trained last December in early to do it. She has never done an ad before but it's very small so she should be okay. Mom will be there if she runs into any problems.
Mom washed he clothes today and Ian's are in the washer now. Mom will put them in the dryer when she goes to bed and Ian will take care of them. He and Jennifer are feeling better but they don't feel like doing much. Mom has the chili made and things for burritos also so they won't have to cook!
It's been quiet so far today. The construction guys did not show up last night so it was lovely to be able to sleep without beeps! I was even growling at the gardeners truck yesterday! I have just had enough beeps!
I hope your mom is going to get to stay home this weekend and do what she wants! My mom is hoping that this next week will not be as busy as last week was! McKenzie has been pretty good today and as long as we keep to the schedule she seems to do fine.
I finally posted the story so come perch with me! I can not wait to spend some time with you and just be together!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It's a boring day around here and after yesterday that is just fine by me!
Mom made a big pot of pinto beans and is going to use part of them for chili and try making refried beans out of the rest.
Thank you for the BOTD congrats! It was a huge surprise to see myself in the spotlight box! I had a great time and Lizzy and Chipper certainly made some fabulous food!
The overnight construction continues! They managed to get part of the left lane across the street paved last night. That means they will start working on our side tonight. They don't work Saturday or Sunday so I only have to put up with the beeping for one more night. Mom is leaving the radio turned up to help drown out the noise.
They did the cross street in 4 nights but I don't think they can shut down many lanes out here because it's a truck route. We are only a mile from the freeway on ramp so there are lots of trucks heading towards the freeway including the huge trucks from Boeing. They make the wings down here and ship them up to Everett to put on the planes.
McKenzie saw her first baby this morning and she did not know what to make of it! The lady who lives across from us has a 3 month old daughter and she was out in her car seat when McKenzie was going out to the dog park! McKenzie sat down and started wagging her tail! Then the baby started fussing so McKenzie got behind mom!hahahahahaha I suppose I should laugh at her since those little humans make me nervous too!
Gardeners are here and they planted tons of yellow mums out front. It looks so pretty! They just started to do the lawns since it was raining this morning.
Mom went to the bank and then to the Dollar tree after she picked Ian up. She went over to pick up the mail and pay the rent. They used a bunch of bark mulch when they planted the new flowers and mom hates the way it smells! Luckily it doesn't smell inside!
Now it's time for her to go get Jennifer and we haven't even done our story yet! Mom will try to get up earlier tonight and we can read it then! Either way, come perch with me so that we can spend some time together! I can't wait to see you!!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It was a crazy morning around here! Mom got up early to take Ian to work and when she came back she took McKenzie on another walk. We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It has a fence along it but it is just a plank fence and there are places where there are big gaps under it. McKenzie stuck her head under a gap and pulled out a Mole! Mom just about freaked out! We have been working on "drop" with McKenzie so when mom yell she actually dropped it! She knew she had done something bad because she flattened out on the sidewalk and look at mom!
Mom took her over to the car and locked her in. She grabbed the towel that she keeps in the car and ran back to the poor little Mole. He was flailing all over the place and trying to crawl into the grass. Mom picked him up in the towel and checked him out. He was okay! He was still flailing and growling at mom!hehehehehe
Mom crawled over to the fence and found his hole and set him down next to it. He dug for a bit and then went down his hole! Mom really thought that McKenzie had killed it! Thank goodness he was just fine because mom would have felt just awful if it had died.
Obviously McKenzie is no longer allowed near the fence. Mom already told Jennifer and Dad and will tell Ian when he gets home from work. Dad thought it was funny but mom has been very careful to make sure McKenzie does not show any aggression at all. I'm sure she was just curious and didn't know what it was but mom wants her to learn not to touch anything unless mom says it's okay!
Dad ended up just staying overnight at the truck stop. He has a load of books going to Indiana. He still has hours left so he will grab his 34 hour break on the way. It doesn't deliver until Monday so he has plenty of time.
We got a the rest of the laundry done this morning so that is all caught up. Mom will go pick Ian up in a little while and then get some rest before going to pick Jennifer up! Back to work for her tonight!
Mikey and Kacey are having a luncheon for us all today so please make sure all the Angel Birds come by!! I'll be doing the story soon also so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!

  in the morning and wouldn't eat her food! Mom puts a few spoonfuls in the dry food and McKenzie eats it right up! Silly dog! She is 10 months old now so she only has to eat the puppy food for 2 more months. Mom is going to stick with the Iams or Science Diet when she starts eating adult dog food. It seems to be good for her and she likes it also.

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
We got some of the chores done today since we didn't get much done yesterday. Mom still has towels to wash tomorrow. I thought it was pretty boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was in the kitchen. Those little yellow guys make me laugh!
It sounds like the driving your mom has to do is a lot worse than what my mom has to do! Mom doesn't go down into the town much since the traffic is awful. If she needs to go somewhere down there she tries to plan it for an early time.
Today she went to the library while Ian and Jennifer went to have lunch at the Pho soup restaurant. Mom wasn't hungry so she told them to go and have a nice lunch while she went to the library. When they were finished with lunch mom took Jennifer to work. She is still feeling icky but she is better. She loves that Pho soup and it made her feel better. Mom and Ian went down to the bank after they took Jennifer to work and then came home. Mom was here all afternoon and I was happy about that. When she picked Jennifer up she went over to get gas in the car and then stopped to get Ian and Jennifer sandwiches for dinner.
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon so mom sat and played with her for a while. She is all worn out now and ready for bed!
When mom was sweeping up the wood around my play cage she saw some of McKenzie's toys behind the sofa. Mom pulled them out and gave them to her and McKenzie acted like mom had bought her a bunch of new toys! She is so goofy. Some of the toys are getting pretty thread bare so mom will pick up a few more when she goes to PetCo next time. PetCo always has a bunch of toys marked half off. McKenzie doesn't care if they are pricey or not, she just loves having toys! She managed to chew up her Kong bone so mom will have to find another one of those.
I sure hope that Macaw finds a nice home. Sometimes they just bite because they are bored or need more attention. Mom thinks that all birds bite. She can usually tell when I'm going to do it! It's sad that he is stuck in the store but at least he is safe and being taken care of. Perhaps it would be good is someone with another Macaw took him in. I suppose that you never know if birds are going to get along until you get them home.
Mom wants to get by the Dollar Tree also. It's just up the street from us. If she and Jennifer can leave a bit early tomorrow she can stop before she takes Jennifer to work or after she drops her off. Mom is going to have to get McKenzie more food in the morning but she can just get that at the Safeway across the street. McKenzie only eats Iams or Science Diet and the Iams is available at the market. She would have to go to Petsmart or PetCo for the Science Diet. Dad told mom she should buy the bigger bags but mom doesn't have anywhere to store them. She needs to be able to put the food where McKenzie can not get to it. She only gives her a tiny bit of canned food in the mornings. McKenzie sees Merlin getting canned food in th

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
Another busy day even though we hadn't planned on it! Actually is wasn't physically busy! Mom was on the phone with various family members from this morning until 3 pm. The only reason she got off at 3 pm is because she had to go pick Ian up! Her phones battery went dead so she had to plug it in while talking with her sister!!!
Dad was the first one she talked to. He said he had tried to call a few times but moms phone was shut off! Mom did have it in her pocket and leaned into something and shut it off!hehehe That was last week.
Mom had 2 younger brothers. One lives in Arizona and the other in California. They want mom and her sister, who lives up here, to drive down to Portland to meet up with them. They are not sure of the date since moms family is never capable of deciding things like that!hahahahaha I find this all so funny. Mom is just use to it!
Anyway, mom will have to drive an hour over to get her sister and then 2 hours down to Portland. The boys want to stay for a couple of days but mom and her sister both have us pets to take care of so a day trip is okay but nothing longer. Moms sister and her youngest sister in law don't get along very well and it will be a big fight if they have to spend too much time together. Mom asked Ian if he wants to go and see his cousins. They were close when they were younger but haven't seen each other for a few years. There are 4 older ones and then moms youngest brother had 2 boys who are both still in grammar school. Ian hasn't decided yet. He wants to see his cousins but he will have to see if he can get time off work. Mom will pick a date and get the time off work. She will have to get a day or two before off so she can get some sleep before the trip!
The people working on the street are back tonight. They took the asphalt off the 2 right lanes across the street from us. They will probably pave them tonight and then start working on the lanes on my side of the street tomorrow night. Mom will have the radio on to cover up the noise!! No one has to go to work early tomorrow so she is planning on sleeping in!!
It is time for a cute story that I found so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you sweetie! I love spending time with you everyday!
Remember that I love you now and always my friend!

It has been a quite day around here! Mom got home and took McKenzie out for a walk! McKenzie was so excited when mom opened the crate that she peed on her quilt! She is always overly excited when mom gets home! She runs up and down the hallway and mom has to catch her to get her collar and leash on! Guess she misses mom!
I got up while they were having breakfast and mom made me some toast. Mom went to get McKenzie's quilt to wash and noticed that she had chewed a hole in it! It's a very old quilt so it's no big deal. Mom had to cut the stuffing out and fix the hole before we could wash it! It's all done now and back in the crate.
Jennifer took the day off to go to a craft class at the library but she got sick! She has a cold and feels awful. She is just going to stay home and rest. Mom told her she didn't need to watch McKenzie. Mom could just sleep on the sofa but Jennifer says she is just going to lay there and watch some TV. Mom asked Ian to take McKenzie out while she is sleeping since Jennifer is too wobbly to make it downstairs. Mom got her some soup and tea when she went to pick Ian up.
Mom got caught up at work and it's finally her "friday". Can't wait to have 2 days off! It's going to be great!

It has been a pretty quiet day around here. Mom had to come home and scrub the stove again. Ian dumped something on it on his way out this morning. Mom is going to have to get new drip pans because no amount of scrubbing is getting them clean!! This isn't the first time! No one seems to remember to clean up spills right away!
She made breakfast for McKenzie and Merlin and then made me some toast. We washed McKenzie's quilt from her crate and some towels too.
Mom was pretty tired so she took a little nap. She went to get Ian and then stopped at the market on the way home. Ian got he and Jennifer some sandwiches for lunch and mom got the dry food for Merlin. She forgot that the other day and he was out. He doesn't eat a lot of it but if the bowl is empty he won't stop howling!! Can't sleep with a howling cat! Mom made a salad for herself and now I'm going to get a few notes done before she heads off to bed.
She had so much work last night and has more for tonight. Only 2 nights until she gets the weekend!! I can't wait and I imagine mom is ready for it too!
I'm screaming a lot and McKenzie is trying to play with Merlin again! She just won't stop and neither will I!hahahahaha Mom put Merlin in the bedroom and Jennifer is sitting here with me so that mom can get the notes done!!
I found a cute story for us today so come on over and perch with me! I can not wait to see you!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
I am so sorry about our story yesterday. We had everything planned out but as usual it did not work out! Mom took a nap when she got home since Jennifer had to go in early. There was no school yesterday for some reason so she had to be there by 8. Mom dropped her off, took McKenzie for a nice long walk, fed Merlin and McKenzie and made me my toast. She got some laundry started and then when McKenzie got tired out, mom slept for nearly 2 hours. She had to pick Ian up at 2:30 and they went to Walmart after that. She came home to work on my notes but Jennifer ended up getting off early so she went to get her. Jennifer was on the computer while mom was out with McKenzie and deleted our story! Mom had to get some sleep after that and she just didn't have time last night. She had to leave a bit early because of the construction on our street. She always leaves early on Saturday nights so I'll be by with another story on Sunday morning.
Not a lot going on today. Mom is washing her clothes and she got some new towels for Ian and Jennifer and has to wash them. They went clearance and were normally 9.99 and mom got them for 3.00 each. She got 4 of them and some wash cloths also. Their old towels all have holes in them or are ripped so it was great to find a bargain like that on something we needed.
Still haven't heard from dad but mom knows where he goes by the bank account. He was in Phoenix yesterday. Mom knew the company was going to route him through Phoenix since that is where their headquarters are. They needed to fix the comptuer in the truck and they can only do it there. I suppose he will call eventually.
I hope your mom gets to stay home this weekend and just relax! Mom has more things she wants to get done but will do a few things at a time. Today she has the chance to get some sleep so that is what she will do.
I think you are going to like the storybook I have for us! It's is a totally goofy story!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It turned out to be busy around here today. Mom had not planned that!
We got the kitchen cleaned up while McKenzie and I had our toast. Mom had to run Ian to work early so we had our toast early.
Mom has nearly finished all the laundry which is a good thing! She cleaned out the turtle tank also but while she was doing that I decided to take a shower! McKenzie thinks I want to play when I start throwing my wings out so she can running to my play cage! Mom had to grab her and tell her no. It really doesn't do a lot of good to tell her no since she will back off to begin with but go right back the minute you turn around! Mom finally managed to get the turtle tank cleaned and get them fed.
Moms sister called while mom was having her salad. Mom doesn't really need to talk too much when her sister calls since her sister wants to vent about everything. It's okay. Mom is use to it!
I started yelling as soon as Ian got home from work. I just wanted attention. Mom had not gotten any notes done at that point but sat and played with me for a while! Now I'm snacking again, Merlin is napping and so is McKenzie. Jennifer should be off in a little while and then mom can get more sleep! It's back to work for her!!
It's about time for us to have a story so come perch with me! I can not wait to see you and spend some time with you!

It was a pretty nice day here. It only got up to 80 so it wasn't uncomfortable. Mom had the windows open and put the fan on.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. It was from the rawhide bone Ian got her yesterday. It happened once before with another rawhide bone so mom is going to stick with the Dingo bones since they don't upset her tummy. Petco only had the small Dingo bones and they are not the right size for McKenzie. Mom can get them at her work so she will buy a few so there will be extras.
It meant that mom had to take her out a lot. McKenzie did not seem sick at all and still wanted to eat everything anyone else had! She got a snack of cheese and one of her cookies. We did share peanut butter toast this morning also. She slept quite a bit this afternoon but seems fine tonight.
Mom scrubbed the stove today and then cleaned off the computer desk and the dining room table. It is amazing how much stuff gets dumped on the dining room table!
Ian was off today so he and mom went over to the market and Ian bought some groceries. He and Jennifer help out with the groceries especially if it's stuff they want that mom isn't going to eat.
When Jennifer got off from work she kept us all company while mom cleaned up the bedroom. Mom had a very old mattress cover on the bed and the plastic part of it started to flake off! Mom had to vacuum the mattress and then she flipped it. She vacuumed the whole room and put clean sheets on the bed. She took off the heavy bedspread. She is going to wash it and store it for the summer. She washed the heavy jackets this morning and hung them in the hall closet.
Don't know what we will be doing tomorrow. There always seems to be something to do around here! Mom says she would love to have a day where all the chores were done and we could just sit and enjoy a clean house!hehehehehe That is never going to happen you know!
It's time for a story so come perch with me! I can't wait to see you and spend some time with you!!
Remember that I love you my friend, now and always!

  Hello My Sweet Gabbie~~
It was another warm day. I'm just not ready for 80 degrees!! We usually work our way up to it but we went from 40's to 80's overnight! Tomorrow is suppose to be more normal which is in the 60's.
Dad called this morning. He is in Yuma Arizona. He was in Indio CA yesterday and saw another stray dog at the truck stop there. It's so sad. He said seemed afraid of people but looked to be in good shape. She had a collar on so maybe she just got lost. Dad bought her a roast beef sandwich and threw it over to her. He asked the guy in the store to call the ASPCA and let them know she was there. I sure hope she finds her home! It breaks my heart to know that some people just dump their animals and I am praying this is not one of those situations.
Mom and Ian went to Petco after Ian got off work and got me more Higgins. They bought McKenzie some rawhide bones so she spent a few hours chewing that up tonight. It was quite peaceful around here! Mom has to take her out one more time and then we can all go to sleep! Mom only slept for an hour and a half today so she is pretty tired! Unfortunately, Jennifer has to go to work early but it's not so early that mom won't get enough sleep. Mom has to be up before 8 anyway since that is when McKenzie is use to going out. She has been doing so great and we don't want to mess the schedule up and chance and accident!
They are moving people around at moms store so some of the positions open will be filled by people already there. The guy who works in toy, sports and auto will be going to bed and bath. Don't know if that is a great idea but we shall see. He is a nice young man but mom doubts he knows anything about bed and bath. One of the young guys on the freight crew is going to do toy, sports and auto and another one will be doing decor and school. That leaves furniture and housewares still vacant. Mom hopes someone will take the jobs before summer is done!
It's story time so come perch with me! I can't wait to spend time with you my friend! I really do look forward to this time of the day!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie Dearest~
It has been a pretty nice day around here. We didn't do a whole lot, just some laundry. Mom has been busy keeping McKenzie from coming near my cage! I have been chewing up wood and throwing it out to her. That goofy puppy actually tries to eat it! Mom asked me to stop but I figure it's not my fault the dog is a dope!hehehehehe
I then decided to rip the paper up on the bottom of the cage. McKenzie would really like to help with this so mom had to put her on her leash. Merlin started howling for food. Mom filled up his dry food bowl. He took 3 bites and then came over and whacked McKenzie. I guess he didn't like McKenzie paying attention to me and not him! The turtles then dumped their filter over! Mom has had a really fun day with us!haha
It's 87 here! Not suppose to be that warm in April! It doesn't feel warm in the house. Mom opened the windows and put the fan on for us. McKenzie and Merlin are napping at the moment so I have a chance to get some notes done!
Mom did freight last night. The manager said that the day people were going to take care of it but mom knew it wouldn't get done. It's been sitting back there for days since the bed and bath person left. There were 3 boards about 6 feet high but mom got it done. Don't know if there will be more tonight or not. They get freight on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Mom will find out tonight! Her fingers are very stiff so she hopes there is not a lot of it!hehehehe It's just from folding and shoving towels on the shelves!
Mom is doing window around here too. She always does it when it starts to get warmer. She washes off the screens too. The balcony door is the hardest to keep clean since McKenzie sort of slobbers all over it!hahahaha
It's about time for a story so come perch with me!! I can't wait to see you sweetie! It's going to be so much fun to spend time with you and share the story I have!!
Remember that I love you so very much my friend!
