Mush, Mush

I am sorry but tomorrow feels like it should so be a Wednesday. I hate being a day ahead. I joined the back to school shoppers today simply to pick up some file tabs and hanging folders for my home office. I was amazed at how much crap people buy in the name of education. And the grocery store is so much quicker and frankly dull without company. I stared longingly at the people wrestling their kids in carts.
After putting away the groceries I took the dogs for a walk. A drag. No literally they dragged me. I did manage to not get them caught in their leashes, allow them to eat smaller dogs or leave their droppings on lawns. But I think in the future I will require help or I am taking them one at a time. Pepper just doesn't like other dogs and then she gets Matsi riled up and I look ridiculous holding back those beasts. I can't blame them too much because they hardly ever get walks and they really love being out and about. So solo walks until Jeff gets here to run interference. My aching back and arms will thank me.
