Compromise Sooner Than Expected

Memorial Day Weekend approaches and, as usual, I have a busy schedule planned.

All day Saturday and Sunday mid-morning will be spent playing AKC Earthdog with both of my Border Terriers.

Then, following Sunday's festivities, it's a change of clothes and a drive to the western suburbs of Chicago for a Sunday celebration at my older sister's house.  My brother-in-law turns 50 in a couple of weeks.

Depending on the heat, it's either silver tarps and open car with the dogs or some crating for them at Anne's.  Earthdoggy dogs in a pristine home can be a problem.

Prior to the Sunday dinner plans, I had planned to trek out to see my mom on Monday.  She asked me about that, this morning, and I said that given that I'd see everyone Monday, I did not want to go home and turn around to come back the next day.

She told me to spend the night. I reminded her about her concerns because I did not want her to be resentful of the decision later.

Robbie will be belly banded, need to make sure I have a back up or two.

But, yes, nice to know it is not permanent afterall.
