Busy Day

Image result for busy
Today was the opposite of yesterday in that we were busy all day rather than just hanging out.  It started off early with lots of chores - cleaning Winston's room, putting Christmas stuff away, cleaning up critter land, etc.

We headed out mid morning for errands - lots of errands.  On our list was a stop at the pet store for 'chewies'.  Each night when we put the puppies to be in their room they get a chewie.  It's a treat that is a bit longer lasting than a cookie so they settle down with their treat and get ready for bed.  I picked up several kinds because variety is the spice of life you know?  Emma gets one as well.  Winston also gets one so we choose carefully  to make sure whatever we pick is healthy for the pig as well.

After errands we hit a movie which meant the puppies were locked up in their room for a good bit of the day.  They did pretty well - there were a few puddles to clean up but not bad considering.  The weather was cruddy today so even if we would have been home Winston wouldn't have wanted to be out and about.  We got everyone out for some play time and a potty break and now we are hanging out.  The girls - Emma, Charli and Juliett are snoozing in the bedroom.  Tango is snuggling on the sofa with the hubs.  Winston is in his bed and the little critters are in a variety of places - I am about to head down there to feed the kitties, give them meds and give Violet her pred.

Thankfully I took tomorrow off as well so I get one more day to get back into the swing of things before I go back to work.  The holiday break went by so fast and was far to crazy - felt like downtime was minimal.... back to the grind soon!!
