HOLY CRAP is was tough getting out of bed this morning. The rain pouring down and still semi-dark outside... I mean perfect weather for sleeping in. I'm sure the two Tynelol PM's that I took last night helped with the eyes needing to be priyed open. But somehow I did manage to slide a foot out from under the cover and then about 15 minutes later - got the other foot on the floor. Standing up took another 5 minutes to happen. Morning person? I THINK NOT!!
Chicken butt (my spoiled little chocolate and tan minature dachshund named Marleigh) was still under the covers when I left the house for work. What a life huh??!! You know, it's the same for dogs as kids - they are their sweetest when they are sleeping. And when you wake them up... they are so warm and snuggly! So all I can say is lucky her... she gets to enjoy sleeping in this yucky weather!
I may not be at home enjoying this great sleeping weather but I can say I'm extremely happy that I don't have to worry about the lovely parking ticket lady today! Oh yea... no $6 tickets today, lady!!
I had a craving for beef stew last night - so I stopped by the grocery store on the way home and got everything I needed to fix the meal. Janie told me that Cala had asked to stay with me while she took Cala's younger brother to karate and boy scouts. No problem... however I didn't know that I was gonna get such a great little helper. She helped me cut up the potatoes and carrots for the stew and after we finished eating... she asked to use the swiffer to mop the kitchen floor. Did I hit the jackpot or what??!! I have at least until she realizes that it's really not that much fun. But not only did I get my kitchen floor mopped, she even played with my hair and massaged my neck! Yes - I felt a bit pampered last night. And NO you can't have her... she's MINE! ha ha
OK, I guess I better finish the rest of this coffee and get back to work. Or at least daydream of what chores I can get Cala to do tonight! ha ha
