I have a broken Mama.
She lost her woofing mind and ran something called the Warrior Dash
on Saturday in 95 degree heat. Sometimes, I just do not know what goes through that head of hers? She could have stayed home with me, but instead, she went and ran 5k up and down the side of a woofing mountain and completed 12 obstacles, all of which look totally dangerous
to me, including jumping through fire for woof sakes
. She could barely walk on Sunday and frankly, today isn’t much better. Good thing she had my permission to just do nothing for the rest of the weekend.
Now, I’m rarely one to make excuse for my Mama’s laziness.
Her job (not the stupid Job she goes to see every day, but her real job) is to make sure I have an abundance of fantastic snacks. However, it was a long weekend here in BC and apparently by law all employers, including me, apparently have to give their employees an extra day off or pay them time and a half. the Mama’s already overpaid in my humble opinion, so I guess you know what I chose, eh?
“No working today , Mama. I’m not paying you.”
She had Monday off from seeing Job, from the kitchen, from everything.
Consider it was still hot as woof here, I guess we were all pretty darn lucky that Mama didn’t need
to turn on the oven and bake anything because MAN! we would have melted.
Luckily, we had this fantastic recipe formulated by Melody McKinnon from AllNaturalPetCare.com
to share with you guys. Don’t they sound tasty as woof? As soon as the Mama is back to regular (ie. crappy) pay, I’m gong to have her whip some up for us to try.
