Be very careful what you say you will NEVER, EVER, do again! For me this seems to always be EXACTLY what I do. When will I ever learn? At this stage of my life, probably....never.
This past Saturday started out ..lovely. Daughter #3 and dear son in law came to pick us up and take out to breakfast..and then perhaps if there was time..why..we would just cruise around and see if there were any garage sales.
I'll cut right to the facts.
I swore to myself that I would never buy another bird. They live a long, long time..and besides I did not want to clean a cage and vacuum up bird seeds ever again.
We stopped at a garage sale and the next thing I remember was bringing these little guys home in a tiny white cage...
You see...I have lots of cages at home.
My patient husband just looked at me when I got in the car..along with worried looking daughter who had had the good sense to go ask her husband if she could buy one and he emphatically said NO and that was that. I didn't ask. Yes, yes, I know I should have..but, I mean, he wasn't paying for them, he wasn't going to have to take care of them and I just couldn't see why, under the circumstances, I should have to "ask"...
So far he hasn't asked me for a divorce..but..he did softly say "I thought you were NEVER, EVER, going to have any more birds!"
You see, the dear man has not been married to me that long. Otherwise he would NEVER, EVER, have said that.
The same thing happened when I had my children...I wanted two..just two and when the seventh one was born...well..never mind. You get the idea.
All I'm saying is BE CAREFUL!!
