Over Too Soon

That was a wonderful 3 day weekend. I had one day for shopping, one day for dog stuff and one day to work on whatever I wanted to work on.

I was trying to figure out where I want to put my washing machine so I started organizing the back room which lead to organizing the middle room and also the living room. I need another one of those tall shelf systems for all of my blankets and towels. I have so many with all of the donations for the dogs. I was keeping them out in the living room on a bookshelf but my puppy keeps dragging them out so that isn't a good place. If I buy a closet with doors for the living room then I can put the tall bookshelf in to the middle bedroom and stack all the linens back on it. Now that I can actually move around in both rooms I should fill up more boxes for the thrift store. That would be the easiest, cheapest way to make more space.

I finally moved my exercise bike out of the living room. I can't remember the last time I rode it. Maybe 2 years ago. I have dogs now so I get plenty of exercise. No need to peddle in place when I should be out walking the dogs. Too bad I didn't think to sell it at my friend garage sale. I moved it in to the middle bedroom but it is just taking up space. Selling it on Craig's List would be too annoying trying to coordinate with people so I think I will just give it to the Goodwill. They have a pick up spot right down the street.

My washing machine could go in 3 spots, the living room, the middle bedroom and the back bedroom. I was thinking that maybe I should plant something out front that needs water from the washer but on second thought the dogs would probably dig in the mud. I am back to my original plan of putting it way in the back bedroom and making it drain to the 3 trees I planted there a few years ago. So far 2 of the trees have shown signs of life after that hard freeze we got. The Mesquite tree hasn't grown any leaves yet.

Anyway, it was a great weekend and I don't want it to end but I guess I have to go back to work and earn some more money. At least I have another 3 day weekend to look forward to at the end of May. Only 5 weeks away!

I am glad you enjoyed your break. I guess you get Good Friday but not Easter Monday? We are lucky to have another 4 day weekend next weekend as well with the Royall Wedding and May bank holiday. Result!

Oh soooo jealous. Most people here don't get Good Friday off. It just happens to be a tradition at this company. I don't know anyone in the US that gets Monday off too.
