No Trip for Me

Well, drat. I had planned to head up to Seattle yesterday and join the rally in support of Israel, but it didn't happen for me. Life sometimes gets in the way. It's a good thing in this case, but I can't really share the details as it's sort of very personal. :)

Anyhoo...the weekend was great. Albertsons had double coupon coupons so I was able to spend $27 and save $49 on groceries in one trip and then save over $20 in the next trip. I love coupons. Have I mentioned that?

Timber got to come with me and Trooper to agility on Sunday. It took me 20 minutes to get him from the car to the field ... he'd pull I'd stop, he'd stop, we'd start again and off he went. One of these days I will get him to walk on a loose leash. Once there I threw the ball for another 30 minutes and he was so tired and muddy by the time we left that I knew I would have a nice tired dog...for a few hours at least. A tired dog is a good dog.

I watched another episode of The War by Ken Burns. It is an amazing documentary but I almost feel like I want more - more details - more history. I'm such a geek when it comes to WWII. Each episode is almost 2 hours long and there are at least 7 or 8 episodes. And I want MORE. =) So far only one has made me cry ... though I was tired at the time. I have one more episode to watch but need to find the two hours needed to sit and focus.

Work should kill me this week. It's peaks and valleys with us - and we are at a peak (wait ... is it peek or peak?). Everything seems to hit at once so if I'm a little more quiet than usual you know why. I really want to keep my job and my paycheck.

Happy Monday!

Sorry you couldn't make the rally. Your heart is in the right place so that counts you know.

Have a terrific week at work. Peek, peak or pique. I don't know. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)
