This and that

It is Saturday morning and I have plenty to do and little desire to get it done. So here I sit, thinking way too much.

I missed the entry deadline to get into the Puyallup show clusters. The way the weekend is coming together, or falling apart, that is a good thing.

Today is the last of the Christmas parties. I have a salad to make and gifts to wrap. Plenty of time. It will be fun. If only it wasn't for the drive part. Most of my friends live on the other side of Puget Sound. There is NOTHING spontaneous when it comes to visiting. Bummer, but the price I pay for living here. However, I am going to party near Puyallup. Tomorrow I need to take the two tailed ones to Puyallup for their eye tests and be back by 2. An hour and a half each way.

Which will be nothing when it comes to the drive south for the SoCal shows. But I will have company to keep things lively, or awake anyway. Lively will likely NOT describe us when we get there.

Nugget turns one tomorrow. My puppy. I can't believe it. He is such fun, and still so very easy.

I turn the big five seven on Monday. Humbling, to say the least. Mom was always older...truly. This summer I will outlive her. I am going to try to schedule a triathlon on the day that I am older than she was. Weird, but some kind of strange message to myself. Last Christmas marked the ninth year since I was sent home to die. Yep, still dying (as we all are)...just a lot slower than they thought. Again, humbling, and proof that "they" don't always know what they are talking about.

Wednesday my second Grand daughter turns seven. To think I may never had met her. Wow.

So, I am off to get some things done. Mail call netted nothing as far as Kate's hip results. Now must wait until Tuesday at the earliest. I know they are fine, but I really am curious how the OFA officially rates, and publishes, them.

Rolling, rolling, rolling, keep those doggies rolling...

Can't wait to meet you in Southern CA, Nancy!
Wish Mr. Nugget a happy birthday for me, and a happy birthday to you too, Nancy!! :)

Funny...I say most of my friends live at least and hour and a half away. (Thanks for finding me some in Auburn, or Pacific, or Edgewood or wherever!)
