Replacing The Mini-Blinds

August 14th, 2008 at 06:19 am

No spending so far today, but then again it is only 9:15AM.

I listed two textbooks on Ebay last night, and I had one "watcher" as of this morning. I really hope they sell for some good money! (Or any money really, what good are they to me now?)

When BF left for work this morning, the pup ran to the window (he usually watches him get in the car) and managed to tear up the mini-blinds. I'm not even sure how he did it, but with one swift swipe of the paw, we're going to have to replace them. It makes me feel a little better to know that we put away some extra money this month, as well as paid some extra on our debt, so this little hit doesn't seem so bad.

We've decided to delay our trip to Red Lobster tonight. Instead, we're going to pick up a few things at Walmart (including mini-blinds) and see if BF can replace them.

In the meantime, there is alot of stuff that I need to get done today. The apartment is getting out of hand. It's not the worst it's ever been, but there are so many little things that have piled up since BF & I have both been working alot. If we were to have unexpected company (which is unlikely since we're 2 states away from everyone)... I'd probably have a heart attack.

Our store picnic is this Sunday, and everyone is supposed to bring something. BF will find out today if he was able to get off work for it. My manager called yesterday and wanted a head count of everyone that was coming, because she said if there isn't enough... we're not going to have it. I think that's kind of rude, mostly because one of my coworkers is hosting it at her house, so no doubt she's already been preparing for it. Other people have already signed up to bring their spouses & grandkids, and what food they're taking. BF requested off work for it.

I think I'll take mini corn on the cobs. We are having burgers and hot dogs, and other people are bringing potato salad and baked beans. I figured cob corn would be cheap, easy to make, and something I'd feel confident about everyone eating!

Well, I'm off to (hopefully) get something accomplished today. I need to stop checking my Ebay items compulsively in order to do that!

    I can relate to your mini-blind/dog dilemma. When we had dogs, they did the very same thing! I finally had to resort to keep the blinds raised to above where they could reach, which kind of defeats the whole window covering purpose - ha!

    My cat did the same thing in every place we lived. I'd even raise it enough so he could stick his head under to look out easily - but he'd still manage to bend a blind or two.

    My suggestion -- get the blinds that are vertical instead of horizontal - that way your dog can stick its head through them easily without breaking them. Smile

    Vertical window blinds is one of the most popular alternative for window shades today. Some homeowners even prefer them over the horizontal types. Like every other product though, not everyone will need vertical blinds. If you like to explore the
    idea of getting some, you should find out first if they will fit your needs.
