I had a nice day today. I took my dog and 3 young homeschoolers on our morning walk. My niece had two friends come along today. It was nice because they were too busy talking to complain about how far I made them walk. I am a sneaky auntie! Then my eldest niece, who is just home from Australia stopped by to take a walk with me. So, I strapped on the dog carrier, popped the dog in, and we did another couple of miles. She stayed for tea, and we discussed a few details about the trip we want to take together the Spring she graduates from college. Then after I got back from taking Cooper on his evening walk both my brother and his wife called me, begging me to babysit my youngest niece so they could go on a date night. Now, she and Cooper are sharing some popcorn while I muck about on the computer. Overall, it was a much better day than yesterday.
For mileage today I walked 11 miles. Cooper walked 8.6 miles of that and got carried for 2.4 miles. I think I will start putting him in the carrier more often for a middle of the day walk. He won't take 3 long walks a day, but he will do 2, so if I carry him I can get in 3 walks without having to put him in his crate. I had planned on doing some ST today, but with all the visiting and walking that kind of fell by the wayside. I can do some tomorrow after our morning walk though.
As far as I know we are doing the family taco night tomorrow, I just don't know what time yet. I think we are still doing Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and the trimmings on Thursday. I was going to stop at the grocery store today to grab a couple things I forgot to get yesterday, but decided to avoid it until after the holiday. It was a little crazy yesterday, and I don't imagine it will get less crazy the closer we get to Thanksgiving.
