I don't know what was wrong with Katie Saturday night, but she kept wanting to get out of bed and go outside... I put her up in the bed around 8:00 as usual, and she was constantly coming to the edge staring at me - that's what she does when she wants to get down. We finally went to bed/sleep, and twice during the night she wanted to get down. I took her outside twice, and she did go potty.
This morning she was up at 8, two hours earlier than usual. I put on her Princess dress and took her outside, where she rolled in the dirt before I could stop her and got her dress full of dirt. I wish I had gotten a picture. She looked like a Tomboy, kind of cute, actually, but I had to wash her dress and hang it on the outside ladder to dry.
She's been scratching a little, so I brought her inside and gave her a shower, put on her flea meds a few days early, put another dress on her, and she seems calm and sleepy now and isn't scratching.
I cleaned and vacuumed The Palms, and got all the laundry and towels ready for the laundromat tomorrow. All I need to do is strip the bed and throw the sheets in. We are going into town in the morning.
This morning, my neighbors left. They really moved in, so they had a lot of things to stow away. They quieted down after that first day, and were actually pretty good neighbors. As they were leaving, I talked to the woman, and she said the day before, Saturday, they had to take one of their dogs, Sadie, to the vet and have her put down. Apparently she wasn't acting normally and didn't look good when they woke up. They live 45 minutes away, so they took her to their vet and the dog had a large tumor on her spleen, which burst during the night and she was bleeding internally. She was 12, I think, and it was decided the best course of action was to put her down. So sad for them, and also for their yellow lab, Max, who is 6 and grew up with Sadie.
As they pulled out, I took a photo of the other trailer all folded up - it's pretty cool looking, I think:
They said they would be back next weekend, they've reserved the same two sites, and I'm glad they will be my neighbors again. I feel bad complaining about him yelling, and then they turned out to be nice neighbors, AND his dog dies the next day.
Last night Katie wanted to get down again, so I took her outside in the middle of the night, then left her down to sleep in her bed on the dinette bench. Tonight she's sleeping in her own bed again. There is no way I'm getting up in the middle of the night again tonight. It's 10:30 PM now, and she is sleeping in her bed and hasn't wanted to go up into the bunk.
So, today I unhooked and Katie and I stopped on the way out and dumped the tanks, then drove across the freeway to the town. We went to the post office where we had general delivery mail waiting, then Walmart for grocery shopping. I also got a 2 quart crock pot (I hope it's big enough) and a square cake pan. I realized I don't have a pan I can put in the oven for small casseroles or baking. (My last chicken/rice/artichoke casserole I had to cook in a pot on the top of the stove.)
Then I had the LP tank filled, and lastly we stopped at a laundromat and got the laundry done. I put everything away and made up the bed before we drove away. When we got home I was tired, so I took Katie for a walk, went through my mail and had a bowl of cereal and blueberries for dinner. We should be good for the rest of the week until we leave this campground on Monday.
I love shopping and putting things away before leaving the parking lot. No worries about frozen foods. And also with laundry. Putting everything away and making up the bed in the parking lot is so nice. When you get home, it's done!
From Me and My Dog, have a great Monday evening, everyone! : )
