Catching up after a busy week

What can I say?  It's been a busy week, not just during the day with the renovation work plus shopping and dogs and dental appointments etc., but every night was scheduled too.  Monday was flyball practice, Tuesday was water colour painting, Wednesday was Italian class, Thursday was the Citizen Canine AGM, and Friday we set up for the weekend flyball tournament. 

We spent all weekend helping out at the flyball tournament. That was intense, starting at 8:00 in the morning we were out at the barn to help.  I was on the score table both days and Harry was the box loader for two racing teams of dogs and handlers.  We were finished Sunday afternoon about 4:00 and came home exhausted.  Here's the crazy thing: we spent the weekend doing flyball with other people's dogs, while our dogs hung out at home alone.  What's wrong with this picture?  I think it's the end of flyball for this family.

Last night and tonight we got to stay at home.  And what a luxury that was!  Everything is relative.


  1. It was nice of you to donate your time but I know what you mean...
    Plus, home is where the heart is, especially if there are dogs there!

  2. joanna - you have to choose the quality of your giving back so that it reflects your will and your ability! steven

  3. Steven, thanks for this clarity.

  4. Volunteering usually gets to be bigger than we ever thought it would be. I think that's because it's usually something we love to do - even the tiring or unpleasant parts. Moving on can be restful.

  5. That is a boo boo looking puppy if I ever saw one.
    I know that look it is saying "what ? you went where and didn't take me !"
    oh yes I know that look quite well.

    cheers, parsnip

  6. there's no place like home...
    welcome back!

  7. Looks like Geordie was having a restful Zen moment while you were flyballing!


I really appreciate your comments.
