Well, I'm totally wiped out and longing to be in bed. However, we got stuck away from home, in freezing rain, so I'm once again sitting up with the dogs, letting them have some much needed play time.
I had to work today, despite the fact that it's Saturday. My office sponsored a function today, and everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, including the fire alarm going off and having to evacuate the building. Of course, it was only about 25 degrees F outside. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I left home this morning at around 6:30 to set up. After grocery shopping and other essential errands, we spent a couple of quiet hours at home before leaving for our friends birthday dinner.
We were enjoying a nice dinner, relaxing when we realized that the flurries had changed to freezing rain. It's an ice-rink out there, and it took forever to get home. Yet we made it. It was tricky getting the dogs in and out, not to mention worrisome. They could so easily fall and hurt themselves. But we're all inside now... safely tucked in.
It will be interesting to see what tomorrow brings. We're supposed to go to our Newf Club's annual Xmas tree pull. This event is at a Christmas Tree farm in Indiana. The dogs are hitched to sleds, and escort families out to find their Xmas tree. Once the family cuts the tree down, it's put onto the sled and the dogs pull it back to the barn. It's great fun, and patron's are very generous with their tips. All tips go into our club's rescue program. Highlights from last year's Christmas tree pull can be found: here
