Man, I so don't want to go anywhere today. Unfortunately, we have no food in the house and will likely starve if I don't go outside and dig my car out from under the snow and ice so we can go to the store. Did I forget to mention that it's three degrees outside? Yes, that's right - three. Brrrrr!

So, two nights ago we tried the plan of putting the dogs in the crate when we went to bed. As I expected, they cried and barked pitifully. I felt terrible listening to them be so sad, and Steve said he thought I was being cruel but that it was up to me. Their cries were really tearing me up inside. This is why I will never be one of those parents who let their kids cry themselves to sleep. I just can't handle the sadness. So, after about thirty minutes of nonstop crying and barking, I went and let them out. They were SO happy, and they jumped in bed with us and kissed and cuddled and I think we were all glad that they were with us again. So, that didn't work, but I am feeling better about them being there. Not really sure why, but I do and I guess that's all that matters.

Yesterday I finished knitting these longies for the new guy.
