Here is the newest addition to our family. Nicole and Jessica talked me into getting a hamster. Leah is her name. Okay, I have to admit that I like the hamster. What will it be next! So far so good with the little rodent. We have only had one mishap so far. Nicole accidentally stepped on her and thought she had killed her. The two girls came running down the stairs screaming as though someone had lost an arm. I asked what happened and Jessica said, "Nicole stepped on the hamster and she cracked!". All I could think of was that now we had a paraplegic for a pet and I was going to have to somehow make an apparatus that Leah could pull herself around on...something like a cart with wheels. Well, to make a long story short, the hamster was just in shock and after about 10 minutes she was back to herself. I never knew having a rodent for a pet would give me something to talk about.
