Our Weekend

We had another long weekend with Mom, and we had a great time with lots of walkies and doggie class and all sorts of frisbee time.  Mom had to spend some of her time doing 'domestic' things like laundry and vacuuming and getting her car washed (although she did not remove the snooter prints from her back windows - she thinks they give her car 'character' and we couldn't agree more).  But still...*yawnsville* 

In spite of Mom's domesticity, we still had a funballs weekend.

Doggie class included an 'obstacle course' where we went around Petco looking for all the 'stations' that had signs instructing us (and Mom) to do various things.  One of them required us to obey Mom while she was standing on a ladder.   Let's just say it took a few tries to get this one right...

One of the other stations required us to look goofy, erm, sit for 2 minutes.  (This one wasn't tough for us, but we were being guinea pigs for Jessi the Turkey Hotdog Lady, who is trying to design an obstacle course that can work for her puppy classes as well as her adult classes.)

Here we are sitting by the scary freezer back in the fish aisle.  I don't know what they keep in that freezer, and I'm not sure I want to know!
Apparently, we "lost" two frisbees in the snow this weekend...

"I know it's here SOMEWHERE."  "If Mom didn't throw like a girl, we wouldn't lose frisbees in the first place."
Technically, we are only down one frisbee, as we found another one that had been lost during the last snow...

The one Abby is digging for isn't lost anymore - we know where it is, but it's frozen in the ground, so it will take a little more work before it can be brought back into the frisbee rotation.
We worked on our frisbee technique.

Serious ear-flappage.

This is MY frisbee.  If you want your own frisbee, go dig it out of the frozen tundra that is our yard.
Of course, we also got in some quality bitey-face time.  (Hey, when you've only got 3 frisbees in play, you've got to liven things up occasionally!  Hehehe!)

Not that the weekend was ALL fun and games.  We had to make sure Mom got her exercise, too.  We dragged her out on a bunch of walkies.

And since Mom has started taking yoga in addition to her circus circuit training class, Abby thought she would help Mom get a better sense of what she's aiming for in the 'downward dog' pose.  You may need to biggify this picture - Abby has 3 of her 4 feet on the ground, and her head is by her 'rooted' front foot.  I'm just making sure Abby gets the pose totally correct.

And we amused Mom by posing for photos.  Although some of us were not as amused about it as others of us.

"We are not amused."

"Speak for yourself.  I'll always pose for Mom."

"Yuh.  WhatEVER."
Heehee!  We had a great weekend, and are bummed that Mom has to go back to work tomorrow.  However, she'll be trying out her brand new Sylvania SuperBrightAntiMoose headlights that Dad got her for Christmas.  Her little car (the one that was washed this weekend but still has snooter prints... you are paying attention, right?  There will be a quiz later...) only came with standard headlights and since Mom is blind as a bat, ah, can't see very well in the dark, Dad thought it might be a good idea for her to have brighter headlights so she might see any moose/deer/elk/Highway Patrol lurking on the freeway before she hit them/got arrested.  Anyway, hopefully her new headlights will keep her safer!  Have a good week everyone!

I'm still trying to figure out that yoga pose. I think I might have torqued something in my attempt to recreate it. Mom is in a pretzel on the floor. Not sure she'll make it into work.


P.s. concrete? My momma?

Oh my goodness, that yoga pose is GREAT. I mean, how did you do it? Does your back hurt, did you twist your neck. My Vickie is amazed you can still move.

And for your question, yes we are still in the middle of that dumb inversion and it is cold and the air is (as the news reported) the worst in the country.

They have recommended that everyone stay inside and unfortunately that is what we are doing.

I am going stir crazy......
