Real life has been hectic and today it seemed all odds were against me to write on my blog. Even the pets are on strike! My dog Zach went on an unauthorized walk and after chasing him in flip flops for 2 1/2 blocks I gave up. I went back home, which by then my daughter Loren was home. I changed into my walking shoes and we went back out to find him. There he was on the path we take every morning. I suppose he's mad at me since I had neglected him for the past two weeks. So today my cat Bologna decided to distract me while I tried to work.
