Still Running Around.

At lunch time I ran over to my rental, got the key out of the lock box and ran to the hardware store to make the required duplicates. The property management company told me that they have some people who want to move in on Friday. I guess that makes sense since it is April 1st. That definitely puts the pressure on. I have arranged help to move the extra tile but they won't be available until Thursday. Talk about cutting it close. While I was at the hardware store I looked for a water transfer pump but they didn't have any. I thought maybe I should not fill up the barrels and instead go to the hardware store by my house where I bought the last pump. I was sad that I couldn't get any water today but then I thought that I would just siphon the water in to one of my laundry water trash can, which are empty at the moment. Then I could put my pump in to the trash can and pump the water wherever I wanted. After work I went to the rental house and filled up the barrels. While I was waiting I programmed the garage door remote that I got off of Ebay. It was surprisingly easy to program. Just had to push two buttons. Now I can take the other universal remote back and get my $40. I also tried to hang the closet doors but found out the two of them are missing the wheels that ride in the track. That means another trip to Home Depot to try and find replacements. I'm going to have to take a half of day off of work on Thursday so that I can get everything done. The trips back and forth to Home Depot will be the most time consuming. When I got home I siphoned the water in to the trash can as planned and it worked well. I filled up my holding tank that supplies water to the RV and then realised that I shouldn't have filled it all the way because I haven't fixed the cracked pipe yet. Then I moved some water in to the RV but there wasn't much room. It looks like the water level is just below the crack now so it should be ok. I hope to get one more load of water before Friday but if not, I might be able to make it until the next rain with the water that I have as long as I don't waste it. Filling up a gallon or two at work would help too. Tomorrow I have to run 3 dogs to and from the vet and maybe back home too. I'm not sure how I am going to bi-locate and be at my desk and shuttling dogs at the same time. Perhaps no one will notice that I'm gone. Here's a video of my newest puppies playing.

I'm glad your dogs appriciate toys, because mine never really did. The best I got was a kind of fetch/keep-away game with Rusty.

Lizzie, I have read about papercrete but wasn't sure where to get the giant mixer. It would be nice to have building materials I can actually lift...I mean other than the mountain of junk mail I would have to haul.

Bridgette, these new puppies sure do love the ropes and balls. Must the the retriever breed in them.
