I was finally asleep after a LONG day of fun-filled activities and/or not-so-fun activities.
We had a “brief consultation” at the vet first thing this morning, which turned into a two hour(?) visit. It was TONS OF FUN holding my yet-to-be neutered, 80-lb. American Bulldog back from each coming & going cute little chica-hua-hua, and keeping my two young boys entertained in the waiting room.
I have a sore wrist from the leash, a sore ear-drum from my children, and a sore brain from some of the pet-owners who galavanted in whilst we sat in the bleachers.
I must commend Pine Woods Animal Hospital for participating in the Friends of Animals program; it is an exceptional, donation-based program maintained in order to help pets get spayed and neutered for as low cost as possible.
Puppers Mcgee had his consult and blood-work, then afterwards we visited the local farmer’s market.
Later we made coffee-can ice cream, had a bunch of neighbor kids over to play (rare; usually my neighbor is the one running the circus) and snuggled in after showers & teeth.
1:15am: (Am I dreaming?) NO, it’s the sound of MINI-ME, and it doesn’t end until around 3am, on and off. Hungry/Thirsty/Nightmares (poor guy). WELL, now I can’t sleep.
So, Tidy Time is now. 4am? Sure: Start the dishwasher, throw a load of clothes in, put some toys away, let the dog out, write this post…
In about an hour, daddy will be off to work. In 2 hours, the kids will be nudging me awake like clock-work.
I’m the ghost in the night. No one knows what goes on while everybody sleeps. I still can’t get my slumber on because I have snoring on surround-sound (dog, husband). Maybe one day, they will appreciate it; just maybe.
(P.S. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING, MOM! I LOVE YOU!)
