Is it Thursday yet?

My office smells like thrown-up raw hide. Ew.

On the way home from work yesterday, we stopped at our mail box because my new Micro SD memory card arrived. So tiny!

While Danny went to the bike store to buy locks and a pump, I went to Michael's craft store to hit the candy-making isle. Wednesday night I will be attempting to make an ass ton of truffles. The doggy daycare I work at is having it's second annual Charity Dog Wash1 on Saturday, and there will be a bake sale. Since I am leaving town Thursday afternoon, I have to make my contribution Wednesday. Candy seemed like a good choice so it won't be stale on Saturday. I've never made truffles before. The recipe reviews said it was very easy, but it gets tedious rolling all the truffles into little balls. And I am planning a double batch! Anyone want to come over tomorrow and help roll 100 truffles for charity? I'll give you some! Oy.

Last night we dropped the Outback off at the dealer for it's inspection and maintenance before our road trip. Tonight we have to go get it. I'm not looking forward to trying to find my way home from Fairfax in rush hour traffic. Even with the navigation system and Danny driving in front of me. Yes, I'm a wuss.

After we dropped the car off, we stopped at the drug store, the pet store, and the grocery store. I got the rest of my truffle-making supplies. It was pretty late when we got home, so we just cooked dinner and worked on our puzzle until going to bed.

Working at a doggy daycare has it's perks - like dogs in the office! Today I have Cadex, and employee's pit bull in here with me. He just barfed up a piece of raw hide (hence the smell). That is exactly why my dogs don't get raw hide. His daddy just came and brought him a non-edible bone. Now he is chasing his tail. He is a little obsessed with tail-chasing.

.......

It is over an hour later. My lunch break got postponed - I had to cover up at the reception desk while there was a meeting.

Tonight I have to try to get cleaning done. I'm not sure how much time I'll have for it between work, picking up the car, dinner, and bedtime... But, hopefully I'll at least get to vacuum and clean the bathrooms. I have a bit more laundry to do as well. The kitchen could use a scrubbing, but I'll save that for after the truffle madness on Wednesday.

I just added a bunch of dog-related novels to my Amazon list. After reading Marley & Me, I got hooked on that kind of book. Yesterday I finally searched around and found some that looked good. It is so much easier to find books to buy on Amazon than it is in a brick and mortar store. But now, I want to get them all! I just started a huge trilogy and ordered myself one dog book to start with, but I am very impatient when it comes to books. If you gave me a shopping spree in a book store I'd fill up my whole car!

My birthday is in, like, 3 days! ADhjdsfuoewbnfjaigehus!@#%!??&*#$!!!!

CarMax was very happy to buy the shitbox Saturn for over blue book value, thanks to the sunroof and the fact that it was 6 years old with under 25k miles on it.

The Outback is the doggy and bike mobile!
