I'm going to work to rest after this weekend!

Oy, what a weekend. I get home from work on Friday totally exhausted and wanting a nap. Instead I took a nice relaxing trip to the Emergency vet. Sarah got out of the bedroom...and Josh got Sarah. I had to literally pick him up by the fur to get him off of her. Lifting a frenzied 95 pound dog wreaked havoc on my already bad neck and shoulders. We put Sarah on the floor and she was walking funny, like her right rear leg wouldn't hold up. So, off to the vet. She doesn't seem to have any broken bones, probably just soft tissue damage. Got 2 shots for pain and inflammation, and came home on antibiotics. Didn't get home until almost 10pm. The only good thing about this is that I could see that Heidi is not going to attack the cats. She did get all excited, but did not try to join in on the action. Saturday I had to take mom to the optometrist and then took her shopping. Went to Walmart, where I always get to haul tons of heavy stuff, 20 pound bags of dog food, 20 pound jugs of cat litter, etc. I bought a bunch of stuff to donate to the pound for the poor furry ones in jail...treats and toys. Took her a few more places, then went food shopping. Finally remembered I was supposed to pick up some candy for the boxes wer are making for the staff at work (candy cane tootsie roll pops...the only thing I could find that would not tempt me!) Got home after dark. Tried to take a nap (is there a theme here???) but Sarah was planted in the middle of my bed and I didn't want to disturb her. Today I had to do the usual laundry and chores, plus start decorating for Christmas. When I pulled out the furniture, I could not believe the amount of dust and dirt. Ended up doing a lot of heavy duty cleaning. Found out half the window lights don't work, so will have to go buy new ones and put them up tomorrow. Sarah is feeling much better today. Jumping off the bed to the floor instead of using the box I put out for her as a step. Didn't even try for a nap today.

Maybe I can take a nap at work.
