It's spring. It's May. It's crazy.
I'm just going to resolve myself to that fact. Multiple drives up-valley during the week. Recitals. Concerts. Projects. School-visiting days. Soccer games.
I know you get it. I know that you, too, are doing the crazy.
I washed the dog yesterday.
Fact one: Winnie weighs about 90 pounds. That's a lot of dog.
Fact two: Winnie sheds. A lot. All that fur that God gave her to protect her from the snow she loves to sleep in has to come out when the thermometer rises above freezing.
Fact three: Winnie's coat is also made to withstand water. Imagine how long it takes to just get the dog wet so the soap will suds.
Fact four: Now imagine drying the dog that has been wet so much that the water actually penetrates the water-barrier. That's a lot of wet dog.
Fact five: She stank. Stunk? Was stinky? Whatever....it was bad. This fact alone was enough for me to ignore facts one through four and overcome the fact that I am
Fact six: lazy.
Need a way to entertain your 4-year-old on a warm, sunny day when the yard is still a bit soggy?
You should probably put sunscreen on the kid, but it's ok if you forget because you're not used to the sun being out.
THIS deserves a post of it's own:
and I'll leave you with this.....
