fatoldlady's Journal, 06 January 2013

Just got back from a walk with the dogs. Its above freezing because of the chinook but the 50 kmh winds make it much colder as I found out the hard way and freezing my hands, didn't think that gloves would be needed, wrong. Whitey decided to take off and explore on his own, maybe these winds were blowing in some interesting smells. He will come when I call if he is within about 20 feet, after that he seems to think that normal rules don't apply. Luckily he stopped at some interesting smell and I got close enough to get him back on leash before he got close to any roads. So now he is getting the cold shoulder, no petting and belly rubs. Don't know if dogs get this but I'm a bit pissed at him.

Back to house cleaning again. I thought I could get through the entire house over the Christmas holidays but all I managed was the living room, dining room and half the kitchen. There use to be this commercial out there where this lady opens her cupboard doors and tupperware pours out, well I have a few cupboard like that and several junk drawers filled to the max. Today will probable just cleaning and organizing the cupboards and drawers. Hate doing it but love it when its clean and organized.

I admire your resolve to clear out cupboards and draws! In fact, the last time we moved with the drawers full and never even sorted them! Glad you got a break in your weather - it does help.

I've been giving lots of stuff from my kitchen to the Goodwill or Am Vets. I decided that I didn't need so many tupperware type containers (and even knives). Of course, the day will come when I'll need something I gave away. I'm trying to get over being such a pack rat, although it may just be genetic - from my grandmother. But I'm trying. I do think that dogs can tell when you're upset with them - but I don't think they have the association to know why. Maybe it'll sink in someway, though.

Oh... FOL... I do know how you must feel chasing after Whitey in the freezing wind and cold. It was fear of Whitey running out in the traffic that kept you out there, I know. Glad you got a hold of him when you did. You might be still out there.... frozen ... with a pissed off expression on your face. LOL! I have a little cabinet with tupperware in it. It used to be a few containers in there. Now when you open it.... it falls out. HA HA HA! I guess over the years, I have saved a few containers. ;)
