Heard a bunch of sirens and a helicopter last night. Found out that there was a stabbing about 3 or 4 miles away. They think it was gang related. Hiker and I got up around 7:30 am. Jean came and picked me up around 10 am. We went shopping at Kohl's first. I had a 15% off coupon plus a $5 coupon off for signing up for their credit card, plus I got another $5 off coupon since my birthday is this month. I got a long sleeved blouse that was originally priced at $18 for free after all of my discounts. Then we went over to Bed, Bath and Beyond. Jean was looking for something they didn't have. Then we stopped by Pet Smart and bought some 2014 calendars since they were on sale. I got one with photos of Aussie Cattle Dogs. The we went over to our brand new Sizzler for lunch. They were so crowded and they were having all kinds of problems with their computer cash registers. I had a $5 off coupon there, also for my birthday. I had planned on getting the $14.99 steak and lobster, but they were only offering that during December so I ended up getting a burger lunch and a salad. The new Sizzler is very nice inside. After lunch we headed over to Petco as Jean knew they were having a free seminar on potty training. Even though we both have older dogs, she had some questions, plus I asked about Hiker having “nervous pee” now and then. They told me that it probably stems from the life she had before I adopted her which I had already figures since I'm sure whoever had her before spanked her and were mean to her. I can tell just by the way she reacts to certain things. While at Petco, I bought a couple of plush toys for Hiker. They were on sale at 2 for $5. As usual, when I got home, Hiker wanted to look inside my bags to see what I brought her. Got into the mid 70s here today.
