L-O-O-O-O-N-G Day

I'm still tired from yesterday... so tired, I can't even think of what the quote should be about, so today we're quoteless...

DH was home and a bit grouchy (and when he's grouchy, he doesn't like me on the computer, so I got no work or blog-hopping done). DD was needy and the Dd was antsy (but it was about 25 degrees outside and windy... brrr).

I also needed to make dog food, and since I wasn't on the computer, I made a lot of stuff. Went to the store and bought four chickens and the makings for dog food, came home and put two chickens in a pot with the giblets for the dog and two in the crockpot with seasonings for us. Last week, I made meals for the family all week with one crock pot chicken. I'm thinking I can do that again :-)

DD also complained that she had no pants to wear, so it became laundry day as well. And I'd run out of granola so, what the heck, I'll make that, too.

So, two weeks of dog food made, five loads of laundry, 12 cups of granola and two crock pot chickens (and a partridge in a pear tree -- actually, it was a veggie lasagna for lunch cuz we needed to eat, right?).

I was on my feet for a solid 4 - 5 hours (maybe more?) and then at around 2:30, when I was mostly done (except the crock pot chicken, which would wait) I decided the dog HAD to be taken on a walk, so I bundled up and went.

DD begged for a board game when we got back. I talked her into a puzzle instead... and she chose a 1000 piece one, which is about half done and spread out on my dining table.

I was ready for bed by dinner time. I am clearly VERY out of shape...


You Are a Thoroughbred Horse

You are hyper, energetic, and even a little high strung. You love to compete, and you're always up for a friendly race.

You love to be on the go, and you never stick around for long. People accuse you of always running away.

You tend to get bored easily, and you do best when you wear yourself out. You like to work hard.

You have a lot of courage, drive, and ambition. You like to be a winner.

Hmmmm... yeah.... that's about right except the running away part -- I'm not that easy to get rid of.

Wow, you did have a busy day! Must be satisfying though.

Me? I had to go out and hunt for a graduation/dinner cruise dress for my DD. I may have to look for a prom dress for my oldest DD. May have to hit the mall. Booooo.

I'm an Arabian. Didn't sound like me at all.

What on earth is a falabella? This is about half right.

You Are a Falabella Horse
You are an easy going, kind creature with a great reputation. You always try to do the right thing.
You are lively and cheerful. You tend to be quite loved, and it's likely that you have a large circle of friends.

You love attention, and you thrive most when you have a lot interaction with others. You need to be the center of it all.
You are a quick study, and you do well in school. You are very intelligent and clever.

Sounds like a great day! Have a fabulous weekend. :)

I'm exhausted just READING about your day!!! I think that makes me more out of shape than you. *g*

Brandy said...

Your day makes me tired, too. So, I don't think you're that out of shape. I think you just tackled and accomplished A LOT. *g*

Re the quiz: I'm a falabella. Except for that last part, not bad.

I hope you have a terrific Saturday!

You make your own dogfood?? Wow--sounds like they eat better than I do!LOL Busy day! I had many plans for today but woke up sooooo tired and just vegged out most the day. Tomorrow will be packed then that means.

Dru said...

I would never make it if I had to do what you did.

I'm also a falabella horse. Except for being the center of it all and having a large circle of friends, it's mostly true.

Just a suggestion, but you might consider buying one of those anti-fatigue mats. On days when I have to be on my feet a lot, like canning, I use a mat and it makes it so much more tolerable.

They're pricey, but if you have a Harbor Freight near you, you can buy a four pack of foam mats that are almost as good, and much cheaper.
