I survived the day, but not without a couple of laughs. I had been texting one of my colleagues in the morning, and we were both saying that we didn't want to talk to anyone, especially each other! Then my SIL, who doesn't live close but is here because MIL had her second knee done, stopped by, and guess what? I had to talk!
I tried to have an extra nap in the morning, but the cleaning lady came, so that wasn't going to work! It was just one of those days! But I did end up having two short naps, and while I still feel a bit tired today, I'm good!
Let's just say that both girls were pretty excited (in their own way) to go for a walk. And it didn't help that Murphy and I spotted a fox. It proceeded to cross a major road without getting killed. Then it decided it should walk down the same path we were on. It didn't like the fact that Murphy was going ballistic, so it climbed up the chain-link fence, and off it went! I tried to get a picture, but at this point, I was holding the leash of a lunatic dog, a poop bag, and there wasn't a third hand to deal with the phone!
Lexi was her usual calm self for the most part, and while we've spotted rabbits occasionally during our walks, she's pretty quiet. Love you, Lexi! OK -- I love you too, Murphy!
When my company left, it was lunchtime, and after lunch, I decided I should attempt to do something. But what? My brain was tired, and I didn't want to get into anything too complicated.
OH -- before we go there, look at this cartoon that someone posted on my timeline on Facebook. Yep --- some people are PROUD of this fact, but seriously?? This is a serious issue and needs to be dealt with by the collectors, not passed on to their children. The cartoon is by Bob Eckstein. I know some people hold items for family members as they may not have room at this moment, or the family members don't want to deal with the things. Guess what? If they can't take them now, they will NEVER be able to take them. Hard decisions need to be made, and then deal with them!
Our garage is full right now -- there's a car, tons of landscaping tools, and four bikes! Once everything is done, I hope to get in there and do some decluttering; not that there is much to get rid of, but it would be good to get that done before winter, and perhaps we could even put BOTH cars in the garage. That's not for today!
You should go back to yesterday's blog and read Elle's comment. I don't think there is ANYTHING extra in her house, but check out the comment to see how small things can accumulate. HOPEFULLY, I WILL get to the point she is sooner rather than later. I need to finish this office and then go back to the top of the house, and each pass will be much easier! I can hardly wait!
Oh -- here's a flower I spotted when I was out with Lexi. I know I can at least snap a photo or two with her. Murphy -- not so much!

In looking at the calendar, I am NOT ready for this month to be over. So much more that I want to accomplish! But it is what it is!!
On that note, I'm out of here to get the day started. Loads to do and no time for slacking today, although I'm on duty to drive the family members to the airport today. A minor task.
Have a super day!!!
