Fun Time is Over

Got to get up early tomorrow and go to work.  It's a good thing I am working this week instead of using up vacation days like most of the other people I work with.  I would just spend money that I don't have or watch Netflix all week.  So, what did I do with my 4 days off?  Not much.  I started to get motivated to build a 4'x8' deck in front of my mobile home door but then I added up the cost of the supplies and decided that cinderblock stairs are fine for now.  I cleaned the house, did laundry, pulled weeds, trimmed trees.  The usual.  I cooked stuff.  Not all of it was successful.  The cheese danish was terrible but the dogs liked it.  The T bone steak was over done, the rolls never rose (I tried the quick thaw suggestion) so they were little brickettes.  I ate the rolls anyway.  The next day I tried making pull-apart bread with the same frozen roll dough.  It rose so much that it tried to get out of the pan and the top burned a little.  It was edible though.  I simmered up all of my ripe tomatoes and made spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce, I'm not sure.  It went into the freezer for later.  Then I made nachos because I wanted to eat something that I knew would taste good.

I didn't go out to my property.  I plan to go after work one of the days this week just to get the bedding to wash, feed the cats and set up my new motion activated camera so I can see if I am feeding my cats or something else.  My mother kindly gave me money to buy paint for the barn-shed.  It's too cold to paint now but it will warm up soon.   I managed to walk the dogs 3 days.  I only meant to do it twice but they got so excited when I was sorting out the leashes and harness to donate that I had to give in and take them for a walk again.  I take two dogs at a time.  The first two go around the block as fast as they can go with a mid-way stop at the pee bush in the alley.  The other two go on a slow stroll in order to help exercise Sassy's injured leg.  She wants to go fast so when I make her go slow she uses all four legs to push.

Next year is right around the corner and the first 6 months are already too busy.  There is no way to get out of it so I have to just jump in and try to stay on track.  16 weeks of school until summer break!  Yes, I'm looking forward to it.  Not the heat, just the break.

Ahhh Sassy. I am so glad she is walking around and you are trying to get her to work that leg. Such a neat dog. I did laugh about the nachos. I know how days like that goes...finally you just make the sure bet. :)

thequiltingdoberman, Sassy is a sled dog on a leash. I don't think she notices any pain in her leg when she is out exploring the world. Her leg seems to be improving. I'd say 80% usage. I wish her meds weren't so expensive, they cost me $2 a day but at least I see improvement. It makes it worth it.

Lizzie, do you have the whole week off? I'm so jealous! It's been really quiet at work though. Lots of time to file and organize.
