Day 82

I got lucky today. When I went up to the K-9 University kennels this morning, the rain stopped just long enough for me to get all the dogs walked. Five minutes after I was finished, it started pouring again and continued raining the rest of the day.

Lately, just about every day contains a little life lesson. For weeks now, when I get in the car, I look at the tires and think to myself “hmm, that sure looks a little low.” I never bothered to actually check the air in the tires however, because when I get in the car, I’m almost always late to where I’m going and gas stations don’t seem to have those hoses to pump up your tires anymore anyway. Well, today I thought that if I waited a bit to give Dash his bath the rain might stop, and while I waited, I might have time to rummage around in the garage and find the air compressor I knew was hiding under a pile of paint cans somewhere. I eventually find the compressor and what do you know…I don’t even have 20 pounds of pressure in my tires. I pumped them up properly and thought about all the other little tasks I’ve been mentally putting off just like the tires. Wouldn’t it be easier if I just did these things when I first though of them instead of wishing they would go away? Probably so.

So, instead of watching the Oscars tonight, I start designing the poster for the Easter Pet Picture event that’s coming up in just a few weeks. Yeah, I know I should have done this last week, but I was doing a lot of other things last week. It’s a good thing I got started tonight too, because I discovered that my big large-format printer is acting up again. The poster looks nice though. Now, I’ve just got to get the printer to print the same colors I see on the screen.

The Oscars run so long that they’re still on TV when I finish working on the poster. I watch for a while and realize that I haven’t seen any of the movies that were nominated this year. I haven’t seen Avatar. I haven’t seen The Hurt Locker. I haven’t seen anything. Sad. I love movies too.
