Well, I was my sister's last choice, apparently the two other people she
had in mind were out of town this weekend.  

My sister went to China--this is really weird, her son's girlfriend's
father works there and my nephew decided to go over there for a visit
and then, sort of on the spur of the moment about six weeks ago decided
to get married while in China.  My nephew is getting a free ride, but my
sister had to pay her way.  She left yesterday, and when I talked to her
the night before she had no e-mail from her son so she was not even sure
if she would be met at the airport in Chang hi.  

I said if it was my kid he could have a good time but no way would I go
to China for him.  Guess that would make me a bad mom, but I don't have
to worry about that one.

Your sister's dog sounds very smart -- too smart. I
synpathize with you for the loss of your watchband and
the pillow mess, and think what a wonderful sister you
are to take on the job of babysitting your sister's

Although I had dogs as a kid, neither my husband nor I
are "into" having pets now. I'm a terrible mother.My
daughter recently got a very cute beagle mix -- six
years old but acts like a puppy. We made it very clear
that we will not babysit the dog. It's like some
people feel about grandchildren--the dog is fn to
visit with but I'm happy to go home without her. She
and her husband are going away for about a week.
Fortunately, they have a friend to dog-sit. I have
said that I will babysit a child if they have one. If
they have the five that her husband wants, that
probably will be too much for me (grin). I'll be way
too old by then (another grin).
