Summer time and the living is easy...

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile but I've been living the high life. Who would have thought - huh? I originally imagined that having a new puppy was going to be a bad thing but man was I wrong. This is great - the doofus and his wife are so busy running after that puppy that I run show around here now. My favorite part is pilfering all the food that is left out when they leave their plates unattended  in order to redirect the little one. My food intake has definitely gone up!

So lately I've been basking in the silence that has come with the big idiot working again and the kids off doing summer activities. All this has led to extended naps and general laziness - so sorry - no writing.  But the kids start school next week so I should be energized enough to get back on my usual writing schedule.

I am getting along with the little dog but he tires me with all his energy. He always wants to jump on me or have me chase him. He doesn't realize that I'm a senior citizen. Oh well, a few well placed growls have put him in his place so we are making progress. Ok, that's all for now - have a great day!


  1. I'm so glad this has worked out better for you than you anticipated. My baby (bernie the beagle) is a senior citizen, too, and she has NO patience for her new cousin.

    Keep sneakin that food while you can!

  2. Oh! So much fun with the puppy and the household! We are experiencing our little gal (Sierra Rose) at full force these days!!!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  3. Haley,

    Hmmm. I thought that your breif absence was perhaps due to some exotic vacation, like a tour of the sausage makers in germany or a spin through Italy visiting Salumerias.

    Lazy and sleeping works too.

  4. Chrissy- tell Bernie that I feel for him!

    Sierra Rose - yeah - lots of snaggle-tooth kisses - and bites!

    DG - now that you mention it - maybe getting a passport is my next order of business!
