The next day I took my kittens back to the shelter and picked up a new dog for me and one for a friend.
The house is a lot calmer without the puppies and kittens. I need the break. I wish I could take 2 weeks off like so many of my co-workers do but I am too worried that I will need those vacation days later on in the year. At least the office will be very quiet starting on Friday. I'm hoping that I can work from home a couple of days too. That's almost as good as a vacation day.
