Fantastic weekend part 2

Saturday afternoon we replace my windshield wipers, did laundry, and then took a long nap. That evening after supper Hallmark told me you wanted me to see a movie called waiting. He told me it would convince me to never send my food back ever again to the kitchen. It was funny and pretty disgusting. By this time it was midnight and I could not believe I was still awake.

Sunday morning I woke up pretty early considering how late I had gone to bed. I had a lot of paperwork to do which I did manage to accomplish sometime before noon. We ate and rested and then got busy removing all of the brush around the big tree outside of our window.  Our neighbor had mentioned that he had seen several copperheads in the brush around his trees and so removing the brush seem like the best answer.

The other big news of the weekend was just bringing an Australian Shepherd / for Hallmark and his kids. Harrison has been wanting a dog. katherine has a cat that lives in the backyard but she and Harrison both would love to have a dog. My neighbor knew someone who had a dog when you get home. He is a 2 year old Australian Shepherd his name is Ruger. When Katherine heard Ruger heard Ruger she thought it sounded cool but Harrison didn't like it. When Hallmark told them that we were was the name of a gun then Harrison thought it was awesome and Katherine doesn't like it. It reminded me that I need someone as a kid who had a horse named Ruger and I never knew it was a good name until I was an adult. In any case Ruger is a fantastic dog. He came over and got along fine with my dogs even when they were a kind of sassy to him. He completely ignored the cats even when they hissed and acted all stupid around him. He is housebroken and he has all his shots. He is black and tan and white. We spent the day with him at my house and then took him back to Hallmark house for the evening. He slept outside and feel the storm came and then he came in and we're Hallmark laid down a towel for him he lay down and slept on the towel.  If he were to flunk out at Hallmark for some reason I would take him in a heartbeat.

The other thing I got done yesterday was to finish organizing my room. Well, is it ever really done be organized? I move my desk down to the room that you sleep then since she is only there two or three nights a week. I have decided I am better off to have a separate office and bedroom. I got the bed that she sleeps and moved not to its final location though. It's one of those things like working a Rubik's Cube. I have to move one piece of furniture to make another piece work and then I have to move something else and so on.

Hallmark's kids will be home this evening and he has completely cleaned up everything in his part of the house. I am pledging time each week to help him and the kids keep it this way because it was so relaxing to sit down and watch TV with no clutter. I know it's going to be an uphill battle but I am determined to help the kids learn how to keep their space neat like this.  I know it's not my job but it's so worth it.

today is full of clients and work. I hope to start riding in the mornings starting tomorrow. Today I actually got my butt to the gym.

I posted a comment on your 4/25 post; did my elderly iPad drop the ball?
Glad to hear you had a super weekend - for some reason I felt compelled to challenge myself with the MS150 bike ride, I completed a little over half (about 85 mi) which ain't "half" bad considering how little training I put in!
Time to get back to the gym myself...
