Another one of those dog days

It is now 6:45 am and I am checking my email and blogs.

Need to get my walk in before beginning my day.

Today will look a lot like this:

  • Leave to go pick up Milo about 9:00 am. No, the last time I left at that time it was too late.  That darn DC traffic!  Must leave earlier, maybe around 8:30 am.
  • Get to Milo's around 9:30 am.
  • Pack that dear little boy into my car and head out to see mom - probably around 9:45 am - if I am lucky.
  • Drive north through city traffic to Sandy Spring, MD where mom now lives - get there around 10:45.  Last time I did this I pulled into mom's around 11:15.  No joke. DC traffic sucks.
  • Visit with mom for an hour - leave around 12:30.
  • Get home around 1:00 pm.  Walk that cutie, Milo. Eat lunch. Sit on the couch with the boy for 30 minutes or so.  Try not to fall asleep.
  • Leave the house around 3:00 to pick up Meathead and Grimace.  Get there around 3:30.
  • Walk those cuties at their house.  Load them into my car and get home around 4:00 pm.
  • Quickly run in the house to retrieve Milo and walk all 3 dogs - who all resist walking together in a single direction.  grrr
  • It is now 4:30 pm.  Dinner time for the mutts. Stand guard over Meathead who is the slowest eater of the 3 and make sure no one else eats his food.  
  • Meaty always needs to walk right after eating.  At 4:45 pm it is harness time for the 3 again, and do the walk-poop-pee thing. 
  • It is now 5:15 pm. Time to start our dinner.  Cook, eat, clean up.
  • Meaty is at my front door again at 6:30, because the end of my dinner marks his 3rd walk of the day.  Yep, we all harness up again.  Out the door.
  • Around 7:00 pm we return.  Time to sit on the couch and snuggle.
What the heck happened to my day?

Enough blogging.  Need to get moving.  Dogs await!

Wow! I guess I am lucky to just have one dog. (and llamas, and a cat, and chickens, but I don't have to walk them...) And I do not envy you DC traffic...
