The Usual Chores

Another dog adoption day. We got 4 adoptions but none of my dogs. I went over to Home Depot to buy some sand and gravel for my dog run and I happened to be there when the Home Depot Nascar was visiting. The race is in Phoenix this weekend.

It revved its engines and when I came out it was gone. I bought 10 bags of gravel and 3 bags of sand. Unfortunately, the sand was on one side of the store with the concrete mixes and the gravel was on the opposite side of the store in the garden section. It was quite a hike from one end of the store to the other pushing a very noisy flat cart. It was more expensive than I expected but I had a $25 gift card so my total was only $22.

Tomorrow I have the heavy job of spreading it around. I also hope to do some laundry. That is all that I have planned other than to relax although I should probably do some grocery shopping. Well, I'll just wait and see how motivated I am.

Four adoptions is pretty good. No news on the short sale yet then. Do you really want to move back into town with all of your four legged friends or it is just the only way to progress. You seem to have a lot more freedom where you are.

No news yet. I love where I am now if only I had the money or could get a loan to build a proper house. There are so many pro's and con's for staying and/or moving. The biggest pro for moving in to town is that I will instantly have a house/water/block wall yard. The biggest con's are that I will also instantly have a big mortgage and neighbors for the dogs to annoy. The best part about my property is privacy/space/freedom. The con's are no house and very little money, hauling in water and no block walled yard to protect me from that scary rattlesnake that is going to wake up in the Spring!!!
