Not that the puppy had any idea what to make of Bandit either:
Eventually they both sniffed each other and came to an understanding:
The puppy stayed calm even when Bandit tried to evict him from his space
So, help us name him :-) We've already voted against Toto.

Who came up with those? I'd like to have a face to face sitdown with that person and understand the logic. So, as I am trying to blow my nose, I grab a tissue and OH NO! it's already kinda snotty (not in the highbrow way). It's slippery as I try to wipe my nose. IT does not feel good at all!!!
I'll take my old style regular DRY tissue any day!

I walked into the ladies' room and sat down. By this time, there was slight wheezing in my lungs and I could take shallow breaths. I sipped on water and tried to control my breathing. I felt like coughing but past experience with asthma reminded me not to cough or it would just get worse. When I felt a little better, I decided to drive home and get the inhaler I forgot there. I walked down the stairs slowly but by the time I got to the car, I could barely breathe.
By the time I pulled the car out of the parking lot, my lungs were burning slightly, the wheeze was louder and my head was hurting. I also started coughing so bad, my throat hurt.
I live 3.4 miles from the gym. Let me tell you, I don't know how I made it. I had 2 red lights and I thought I was going to die. I went 60 in a 45 zone to make a left turn light so I wouldn't have to stop. I could barely keep my eyes open, my lungs were literally burning and I don't think I was pulling in any air. At one point, I even thought of pulling over and calling 911. But, no insurance this month scared me into just driving home.
I pulled into our parking lot, and was hoping one of my neighbors were out so I could fall on the ground, give them my keys and have them get me my inhaler. But, no! Nobody around today. So, it took me close to 7 minutes to get up 21 steps. Time passes really fast and slow at the same time when you think you're about to die.
I made it inside the door, grabbed my purse and fell on the floor. I was coughing so hard I couldn't even get the inhaler up to my mouth for a couple of minutes. Eventually, I managed to get the 2 prescribed puffs in and started breathing. It's now an hour later. My lungs and throat still hurt, I feel like crying because I felt like I was about to die and I am typing this to remind my forgetful self not to ever forget my inhaler at home again. Especially not when I am on my way to the gym!!!

The first one is a 5 shelf cupboard. The second one has storage at the bottom, a drawer in the middle and a 3 shelf cupboard on top.
What I need to organize:
- little kitchen electrics
- baking stuff - cake mixes, nuts, chocolate chips, brown sugar etc.
- other foods like rice a ronis, cans of vegetables, sauces
- rice, lentils, sugar, creamer etc.
- snacks like chips, popcorn, cookies etc.
Where should what go? The 1st cupboard sits in the kitchen and the hutch is in the dining room.
