I am really hitting the end of my rope. Here it is, 12:45pm and I have yet to start working. I have roughly 8 hours of work that I absolutely MUST get done today. Specifically, I have 180 exams to grade and deliver by tomorrow. The place I have to drop them off to is half way to my parents house, which means that I need to get myself packed, organized and the house shut down before I leave. This is going to make for a very busy 24 hours, and all I have energy for is to sit here and surf the internet. I want to exercise the dogs, and should have done so already. My plan had been to run them this morning and then work all afternoon, but I haven’t been able to get out of my chair. Heck, it took me two hours to get out of bed. I haven’t felt this tired in a long time and clearly have pushed myself too far. Damn.
My only option now is to start working and forget about trying to get the dogs exercised. Instead I will take work breaks and do a little training with one dog on each break. At least the weather is nice and I can leave them outside for much of the day, where they can watch the world go by. Being a Sunday there’s a fair bit going on. Some kid keeps going by on a go-cart, which the dogs find quite stimulating. Earlier, a big white cat walked past the fence. There’s simply no end to all the excitement happening around here on a weekend!
