Like a Caged Animal and It’s Not Just My Brain That’s Foggy!

It’s Monday.  What did I do all weekend?  I was in a self-imposed prison.   ???   Well, you see, I have a 10 month old velcro puppy.  A dog who never leaves my side – in and out of the closet, in and out of the bathroom, back to the closet, under my bedside table when I sleep and under my feet when I’m on the couch.

And now (thank you Mr. pick-up truck who didn’t bother to stop and say you’re sorry) he is confined into a cage just big enough for him to stand up and turn around.  I cannot leave his sight.  cry, cry, whimper, loud bark.  The bark will continue until I return.  Now let him cry you say……   ugh, I didn’t have the heart to let my kids cry either.


So I sleep with my fingertips through the cage.  Last night, he got his first reprieve.  As we settled into binge watching the 5th season of Longmire  (I’m not joking – at 12:45 a.m we were watching the last episode)


I took Jake out and he lay down beside me on the rug.  It worked.  He did not try to walk around or play with his buddies.  Just lay beside me with his head on my leg.  Happiness.


This morning I watched the fog.  Now I guess if I lived near the ocean, this wouldn’t be such a crazy sight for me.  Its just that it was moving so fast!!!   It looked more like smoke from a fire enveloping us.


Within 10 seconds:


Lets review that:

My cinematography is amazing.   I missed my calling.

After the fog, came the rain or drizzle and a mere 45º at noon.  Hey, I know!  Lets do some online shopping!  Immediately I went to Kohl’s.  Found a cute denim shirt on sale.  Let’s do it.   My Kohl’s Cash has expired?!!!!!



Remember those games where you look at a picture and find the hidden objects? I usually saw them in the Highlights magazine at the Doctor’s office.  Well that’s what I thought of when I took this picture.  How many cats do you see hidden in this picture?


For the answer,   turn your computer upside down and look at the bottom of the page.

Luna has taken this opportunity to go to the salon (aka Petco) for some badly needed primping.  Did you know poodles and therefore, doodles, have to get the hair in their ears plucked out?    EEEEEWWWWWWWW.    Let’s move on.


As I snuggle under the comforter on the couch, I hope your week is starting off great!

One step at a time,

  1. I think I’m going to have nightmares about your ‘wall of fog’, and it took me a very long time to see the third cat in that photo…and yes, I did have to study it for a very long time upside down. Healing vibes to Jake xo
