Have you ever had one of those days where you tried to cram too much into a single day off? Today was one of those days for me. The plan was simple. Start the laundry, a bit of morning exercise after sleeping in, post office, lunch, a movie and then finally, some much needed down time. We got as far as the exercise part and then things started going wonky. I had a rushed workout at the gym, raced back to pick up Mini-Matt from Tae Kwon Do and hit the post office. It was closed - missed it by 15 min. We came home to move the laundry over and then I got a call to cover the afternoon shift at the clinic. Damn.

"Sure, I can do it"

We rushed back to lunch at our favorite spot, Sweet Tomatoes (it's become a bit of a Saturday off of work tradition) and then on to see "Letters to Juliet". Next we went to Wal-Mart where everyone in Irving seemed to be, and they were all pretty agitated about it, too. At the checkout line, we actually heard some people launching insults back and forth. There's a reason Mini-Matt calls it "the crap store". Back to the clinic for the afternoon shift, picked up and folded the laundry, unloaded the dishwasher, portioned out the dog-chicken, baked some dog-salmon (Yes, this is a hyphenated food title because it's the girls' and not ours. And yes, they get salmon, and yes, they are terribly spoiled) feed all the 4-legged creatures, and start preparations for dinner. It's now 8:16 pm.

And the best part of all this, is that the girls have been watching me during play bout breaks. They've been rolling about and chewing on each other for hours. At one point, Nyxie even cocked her head as all German Shepherds do when they give you that "Really?" look. I swear their mothers teach them that look when they're puppies, just to make us feel dumb.

Days off are great.
