I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

The Trouble With Pets

Me - The trouble with pets, wow! Pets are a pain in the butt sometimes. My kittens half the time don't love any of us. They love blankets more than us. That is not a nice feeling. Kittens are trouble. They are always making messes in my room and then batting around the stuff so it becomes even more of a mess. The trouble with fish is they are incredibly boring. You can't play with them or pet them or cuddle with them or spend time with them. The most you can do is watch them, and I get sick of that after about 10 minutes. The trouble with guinea pigs is that sometimes they bite and they have sharp little teeth and they hurt. Also, they are messy. Our guinea pig, Olivia used to attract bugs. The trouble with birds is that they are loud. If you keep them in your room, you can never turn the fan on. They also bite and it hurts. The trouble  with horses is they kick. If your riding them they get spooked really easy and you can fall off. You can't keep them in your house. You can't cuddle with them. They are not really that soft. Dogs have to be walked. They sometimes jump up on people and sometimes they bite. Even though pets are trouble, sometimes you just can't help loving them.
Mom - Pets can be sweet and they can be lovable. They can also be a pain in the neck. Dogs have to be walked. They get into everything. They like to chew on things especially if they are puppies. Sometimes, they bite. Cats get into everything even more so then dogs. There is barely a surface that they cannot reach. They scratch although sometimes just by accident. Sometimes, they bite. Their litter boxes have to be changed. They can be sweet and lovable but sometimes they can be aloof and distant. Guinea pigs and rabbits can be messy. Also, you can't cuddle up with them in your bed. They are not always very affectionate. Other little animals like gerbils and hamsters can also be messy. You also can't cuddle them Sometimes, they bite. Birds are messy and noisy. Fish are boring. They pretty much just swim, eat, and die. Bigger animals like horses are expensive to keep and you can't really cuddle them either. All animals have to be fed. All animals have to be taken care of. It is like having additional children. It is not always easy. It is not always fun. In the end though, it is worth it, and I can't imagine my life without my children or my pets in it.
And that's our view. What do you think is the trouble with the pets?
