If you want to read a fun Top Ten (OK, Top 7 in this case) about dogs, this is the one of you: http://theweek.com/article/index/222628/the-7-most-newsworthy-dogs-of-201144
|I'm Chaser. I know over 1,000 words|
You can read Chaser's story below. I 'm super-duper impressed on how smart this dog is: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/18/science/18dog.html?pagewanted=all
I know a lot of words, and commands, but certainly not 1,000.

|Yay! Finally, short nails|
|Maybe Linda should get this book. I'm sure wasting hours on the internet is not in there.|

Yesterday, Linda was convicted to stop worrying about what she will be wearing to her friends Cris's wedding later this week. She decided on a plain black dress already in her closet and just a tad more makeup than normal. No more focusing on the outside while neglecting the inside. While she was returning all Tierney and Sarah's wrong gifts today, she wanted to spend the incredibly generous gift card that Cris gave her for Christmas. Well, since she wasn't going to fuss anymore about the clothes and just wear something she already owned, she thought she would spend the gift card on shoes for the wedding. She found a pretty pair with a Tierney style heel. Since super-high heels are not something she is used to, Linda was a little nervous. The shoes fit great, but she decided to wear them around the store while she shopped to make sure they that she wouldn't trip or turn her ankle walking down the aisle at church. After 15 minutes, her lower back started aching. In 5 more minutes, the pain was up her spine into her upper back. Wearing the giant high heels must have pinched the dumb nerve in her back again!! The rest of the afternoon she was crooked and in pain. She had to ice and take drugs to be able to teach her 3 classes this afternoon. Now it's a little better, but she is going to have to take it easy the next few days. I think if she would have listened to her conviction, the back pain would never have happened. Oh, and she did put the shoes back and bought a pair of Joe's Jeans instead. They are super comfortable and soft. Just her style.

|Baby Chimmie when he was 5 pounds. Now he weighs 15!|

I was amazing! My acting debut was a success! My name was even mentioned when the credits rolled... "and featuring Choopie as Toto!" Yay for me! Tierney's Lost skit was also very good, it was Linda's favorite skit not counting my little part. Her final scene with the Smoke Monster ended up on the editing floor, but she said it was epic. In another skit, she played the girl with the long hair from the Partridge Family who's name Linda can't remember. Tier did an excellent job on the tambourine and singing harmony. It was all very entertaining, especially when all the church Deacons got up and did a song and dance number. As soon as I get the URL's for You Tube, I will post them here so you can watch them too!!

|Note to Baby: Not the best outfit to wear when you spit out the 10 cheerios you tried to jam in your mouth at once!|
|I could of played the part of baby Jesus.|
The computer just turned itself off again, right while I was typing. It just logs out and installs updates by magic. Her old computer never did that. A window would pop up and say "do you want to install updates now or later?" This one is so bossy!!

|Her hair really wasn't orange, it's just the lighting|
|More arms = more hugs. Linda could use one right about now.|
Linda seriously needs to take a class on basic computer skills. We've spent the last hour trying to figure out how to get our pictures to load from last night. The old laptop was so simple, you plugged in your camera, and up pops a window asking if you want to import photos. This interface is so tricky. You have to hunt and hunt for the command to import photos. She found it, but does not remember how she got there. Plus, the laptop takes up all of her lap and then some so there isn't much room for dogs. The good part is how amazing it is having such a giant screen and the processor is soooooo fast it does things before you can get your finger off the key! Oh, and none of her bookmarks transferred. In a way, that's good because she was spending a little too much time reading strangers wedding blogs and exercise blogs. All the recipes she saved are now gone though. I doubt she would have ever made that black bean and avocado with roasted corn burrito anyway. There isn't enough time to get caught up on all the photos since it took too long to figure out the upload process, so here are just a few from yesterday.

Our new computer is somewhat set up and the photos and music files are all loaded. It took 2 very smart brains to figure it all out while Linda watched. She is just too tired to mess with it now, so we are going to bed and figure it all out in the morning. There will be photos galore tomorrow once Linda loads her camera software and transfers the new photos. Most people would love a new laptop, but not Linda. She wishes her old one still worked and she never had to mess with all this new technology. Thank goodness Tier is letting us borrow the iPad in the meanwhile.
Noah gave us the most wonderful Christmas gift. He made a handprint in plaster and it has a photo on the back of him wearing the beach hat we got him. As soon as we can, the photo will be added to the post. Today at lunch he ate his green beans like they were M&M's! That might be a new flavor idea. Instead of chocolate coating, they could have some type of healthy fruit shell. He also loved his scrambled egg and wheat crackers. For some reason, he though the little cheese bites were Chimmie's and mine. He kept dropping those on the floor for us to eat. He is already tired and will be taking his nap before our walk. Linda is taking lots of photos so we'll post them as soon as we can.
Day 2 of iPad. I'm still waiting to get he new laptop up and running so I can post photos and type faster. Linda did find out that she LOVES to read on the pad though. Tier had a few books saved and Linda read an hour last night without her eyes getting tired. Hopdefully I'll be back to posting normal soon.

OK, Tierney gave Linda her iPad since her computer is dead. Until we get our new one all set up and running, we'll have to use this. Linda cant't type worth a lick on the touch keypad. It's taken 4 minutes just to type 4 sentences. Plus we have no photos stored. How do people use these crazy contraptions? I bet Tier's fingers just fly on the keyboard.
