Which daily tasks take up the most of your energy?

The things that take the most energy out of my day is dealing with my dogs. Yes, we do have 5 of them and it was our decision to have so many dogs, but they are very well taken care of, they are all up-to-date on their shots, they are all spayed/neutered, and they are always tied and confined to keep them safe. We love them to bits but they are still pains in the butt sometimes!!

Especially around 3:30pm. We feed them supper at 4pm and I swear they can tell time. As soon as the clock hits 3:30pm they start running around like mad and playing, barking and whining. Driving me crazy! Another thing is putting them all outside. We have 1 big dog, Spike, who has his own big heavy duty chain, he is a STRONG dog and wears a cow collar because it's the only thing he hasn't broken yet! They other 4 small dogs are all under 15pounds and share a chain, so I put them out one by one. The small dogs are easy to put out and bring back in, but if the big dog doesn't want to come in and I'm the only one home, he is staying out there until he is ready. He will listen to my mom or boyfriend but he will not listen to me! Even if I'm offering up treats!

Our dogs are part of our family and treated like royalty, no matter how much energy they take up!


  1. I couldn't imagne having 5 dogs!! HOly cow, good job for you though - that's a ton of work!!

  2. We have four large dogs & so I know exactly what you are talking about. By the way- I'm with ya when it comes to thinking that they can tell time. Not sure if it's been scientifically proven but it's a trait that I've noticed in all dogs that I've ever known....

    Have a great week!

  3. Dogs take up tons of my energy, too. My chihuahua will mark everything in the house if I don't watch him closely!


  4. That is a lot of dogs! What takes up most of my energy? I would say either bathing my children or mopping floors. I bathe the children more often than I mop, but I sweat when I mop.
