How Do You Fill Up a Saturday?

It's really easy to fill up a Saturday in our house. Tom got us all up at 5:30am (Rob wanted to stay in bed), so Rob let the dogs out and made them breakfast while Tom went to the CAR WASH (yes, the car wash at 6am). We had breakfast at home, and then got haircuts at 7:15... then back home, loaded the truck with stuff for the dump and copper piping from our old shower for the recycle center. We drove north about 25 minutes (we had the dogs in the truck with us, laying on their pillows and comforter in the back seat of the cab). We learned that recycling COPPER piping, you need at least 10 pounds. The recycle place was "nice" to us and gave us a whopping $8.00. Then we went to the dump with other stuff, came home and cleaned up the back yard (of doggies presents now that all the snow melted). After a lunch with Tom's parents, we shopped for a new vacuum cleaner; cleaned up the flower beds of leaves and trash and trimmed the broken tree limbs (from our double blizzard in Feb.); walked the dogs 2 1/2 miles; did 6 loads of laundry and made the bed, cleaned a drain in the bathroom, and we're still going. It's 5:30pm... Are you TIRED YET?? This is typical for our Saturdays. Of course, with my (Rob) jaw still killing me - and I'm on pain killers every 4 hours, I'd like to take a nap. Um... forget that!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
