Sunday Pause (Paws): Ahhh…Relaxing On A New Couch

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax.

I personally wasn’t able to relax for a few days this week. We ordered a new couch in October and had received notification this past week that it was in and the delivery company would be in touch. A little back story on this…

I do not purchase big items very often and when I do I usually research for hours, or even days, before making a decision. Our old couch was over 20 years old. So in my search I fell in love with a couch I saw online that a friend shared with me but knew it would be too big for our space. We already had a pretty big couch and this one would be bigger. So I kept looking online and stopping in some furniture stores. There it was, one I thought would work. It was the color I wanted and had the buttons on them I liked on the other couch that would be too big. I spoke with a sales person about my biggest concern which was delivery and getting it in our second floor home. The sales person said this couch has been having some trouble getting in to homes so she proceeded to grab a tape measure and we discussed it more. I still had doubts so she brought me to the manager who also measured, looked up the information on the computer, and told me what measurements the door and the ceiling needed to be for them to get it in. I went home and carefully measured everything, spoke with the manager again, and told him I was concerned about ordering it if there were doubts because we couldn’t afford a restocking fee just to not have a couch in the end. He was convinced it would be fine so I ordered it.

Delivery day came and sure enough Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Fun & Games

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and have some fun!

Now that Thanksgiving is over the Christmas season has begun! I put my Christmas tree up and am officially in the spirit. (I gave a different look to the picture giving it kind of a frosty covering. Just having more fun playing with photos). Almost every ornament on my tree has a memory attached to it.

Ignoring A Need Right In Front Of Us

What is going through your mind as you look at the picture above?

When I first saw this picture, I was heart broken. The old cliche “a picture says a thousand words” hit me right in the nose. Here is a man “buying” a new puppy for his child while a homeless, starving dog is laying right there on the street. It even looks like it is raining outside too.

There are a few thoughts that I feel can be taken from this picture.

Cruelty Free Shopping

According to many people there are other ways to go about finding out if products are safe other than testing on innocent animals. I do not want to think that an animal had to suffer for the mascara I wear, or the hairspray I use, or the body wash I use, or the cleaning products for my house. It isn’t worth it! There are MANY products out there that DO NOT test on animals. Click on the image below for a website where you can download a cruelty-free shopping guide or when you are shopping look for the leaping bunny logo to be sure you are purchasing cruelty-free products.
