I got home from work on Friday and was met at the door by Dan. Mia was locked in the sunroom and Dan didn't look happy at all. I immediately knew that Mia had done something bad but I wasn't prepared for what it actually was.
Remember back in November when I posted about attending my very first book signing? Remember how excited I was to meet John and Sherry from Young House Love? How excited I was to have a signed book? How we drove 2 hours to get there and then waited 3 hours in line? Remember that book? Let's look back shall we.
|So excited to finally have it in my hands|
|Meeting John and Sherry!|
Ah, such good memories. Such a beautiful book it was.
Yes, I said was.
Can you believe she did that? Does she not realize how precious this book was to me? I was so mad.
|Excuse the weird face. It's my sad/mad face.|
I called my mom and offered her a free black lab, full bag of food included. She said no, so instead I just vented away at how mad I was at Mia. Once some of the anger and sadness faded away, we decided to put a little bit of humour into a crappy situation. We decided to dog shame Mia.
It did make us smile a little bit. Only a little bit though.
|I DESTROYED my mom's special book that she had signed by the authors. |
Since we're on the subject of ruined books and dog shaming, I'll share the other thing she did at the same time. I guess it was a two for one deal on book shredding.
Dan and I had just finished making a photo book of our home projects. We had received a $20 gift certificate to MyPublisher so we made up a book and were excited to show it off to friends and family when they stopped by for a visit. We thought it would be nice to have a book of our projects to just flip through instead of wandering around the whole house.
We had it for less than a week.
So we dog shamed her again.
|I chewed up a brand new photo book my owners made. :( |
|I ate two boxes of granola bars and a package of Sidekicks (all while my owner was in the basement).|
