Wednesday afternoon....feels like a good time to blog

Yesterday was one of those days where I really got nothing accomplished unless it involved me sitting at my computer doing work so today I was bound and determined to get some chores done that have been pilling up. While I still have quite a few things that need to be done I have gone to the pet store and bought the essentials for Tonka and Guinness which include organic dog food (which is getting rather expensive due to the amount Tonka eats every day), chewies (rawhide strips that G and Tonks get every night at bedtime), some more poop bags (Tonka's poops sometime require 2), a new collar/harness for Guinness (his first collar was getting small and he ate through his last choke collar so I am trying a harness to see if that helps with his pulling because the dog doesn't seem to care that he can't breathe), 2 new toys and a traveling water bowl for when we go to the puppy park (Tonka doesn't like to drink out of the water buckets they have there). While not every trip to the puppy store involves so many purchases it does always seem to be a higher total than I would like, especially considering I am unemployed at the moment.
One thing that needs to be done that I am absolutely dreading is putting my laundry away. I have been in and out of town so much lately that each time I would unpack I would just leave everything out because I knew I would be packing again very soon. This has lead to a laundry basket overflowing with clothes and me with no desire to put them away.
Arizona is now officially an oven and will be for the next 3 months. I was out walking Tonka and Guinness the other day when G decided that he was going to go out in the street on the asphalt. Poor little man burned is toes and was crying :(. I think I may need to invest in some shoes for him or something (Tonka does not have this issue because his idea of going for a walk includes walking out the door to the grass, doing his business and walking back inside). While I know all places get hot during the summer months I don't think any of you who have never been to Arizona between the months of June to September can ever really say it is hot. The projected forecast for this summer includes temperatures in the 120's, I don't care how much humidity you may have in your state that is HOT!
I don't have any new pictures since yesterday but I feel pictures are some of the best parts of blogging so here are a few older ones with some of my favorite people (I hope I don't hurt anyones feelings but I don't have many pictures with a lot of you).

Umm, I am offended that I do not have a picture on your blog at all, not in ANY of them! Not having one is a ridiculous excuse! :P After the 4th of July, there BETTER be one! :D

I arm is in the one w/ Vanessa. However, it is not sufficient enough for me. This needs to be resolved soon.

I didn't know you had a trickster you! Well, now that I unearthed it, expect to be commented! Whats the countdown at until I'm back in Arizona? I'm just trying to wait out the blistering heat, but I think August will still be hot. *sigh*
