Yes you are definately not ruining Jrf456 and my boyfriend is in to golf too. He is addicted to it in the summer. Every second day you can find him out on the course. And he was weight lifting too but he built up too much muscle and couldn't jog as fast so now he is slowing down on that aspect of exercising because he needs to be able to skate fast for hockey... he can be so funny sometimes.
As for neices...my sister is mad at me now because my neice was over last night and saw my new halfmoon betta for the first time and just fell in love with him so now she wants fishes again. A year ago I was breeding guppies and mollies and gave her some to look after, my sister hates cleaning fish tanks and my neice is just learning how to do it properly and is still a little squeemish about catching the fish and having them flop around in the net and has a hard time putting them in the bowl. She doesn't want to hurt them because they are so tiny compared to her cats. She's afraid she will break them. She is so kind-hearted when it comes to animals and comes up with the cutest reasons to not help her mom... on purpose I'm sure... truthfully I wouldn't want to help change a litterbox either.
