I started the day by completing the website update assignment I received yesterday evening. That was a bit of a nuisance too. I suppose I could have waited until Monday to start this, but what if the client really needed it? I may be old and business may be slow, but being responsive is still in my DNA. I've always turned jobs around in a timely manner and have never missed a deadline since I started the company in 1990. The update took a while, but at least it's out of the way. Now, I can spend my time on important things like cleaning up dog poop.
I was bragging about Dot yesterday, but my luck ran out today. She had another accident while I was taking a shower and it took me quite a while to get her cleaned up again. We buy Nature's Miracle enzyme cleaner by the gallon now and our washing machine is going constantly. I was initially really disappointed with the complicated front loader after having to replace the wax motor on the door lock twice, but lately it has been working like a charm. I don't think washers and dryers in laundromats get as much use as ours do since Dot has become incontinent.
Janet got a new iPhone today, and now I want one too. The 6S is much faster than my old 5 model and the retina screen is visibly sharper than anything I've seen on a phone before. It's hard to justify purchases you don't need though. I definitely don't need a new phone. Mine works just fine. I really don't need much of anything, but I'm itching to buy something. It's kind of ironic. When I'm really busy, I never think about buying things. When work slows down and I'm poor, that's when I want to buy things. It shouldn't work that way.
The rain returned this afternoon. Even though Dash and I got wet on our evening walk, I'm not going to complain about the rain. Today's rain actually did me a favor, since I needed to water the front lawn. Now, I'm OK for a while. I can never remember what the watering days are in our neighborhood. Water restrictions were put in place a few years ago when there was a drought, and even though we had a tons of rain last year and the lakes are full, the water restrictions are still in place. I learned a long time ago that once a government regulation is in place, you've pretty much got to learn to live with it forever.
I guess I'll go to the gym tomorrow. I get bored walking on the treadmill, but I do like shooting baskets on the basketball court and I enjoy seeing lots of steps on my activity tracker. Sometimes Sunday's are 20,000 step days.
