Randomly thinking

"Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life." James Cromwell

That said, I must say I am running an animal daycare! I was in a Relief Society meeting this past week and got no less than 4 phone calls...

"Where are you? THE PUPPY GOT OUT!!"

"When are you coming home? The puppy pooped on the carpet!!"


"I don't know what to do with Roxy!"

These calls came from Tbone - not the biggest fan of animals. A little stressful. Roxy managed to push against the puppy play pen and get out. (We fixed that.)


She is cute, but I find myself waking up in the night to check the time because I haven't heard her cry. Scary.

This morning I was watching "Ratatouille" on TV to stay awake at 6:30 (not much to choose from at this early Saturday morning time - this is a family favorite, go little chef!). I was up at 3:30 with the pup for a moment for a potty break and then had to keep reading my book, there where only a few chapters left. Bad choice.

I am tired today.

I did give my fridge the New Year's clean - the oldest thing I found was expired in 11/2007 (pop out dough rolls). Yuck. Ky and Tbone would be impressed. They are the expiration date freaks in the family. Yes, you are. I have been known to scratch/cover/remove/lie about this particular date in the past... sorry. No one died.

I got the call this morning that our RS teacher for tomorrow has come down with strep, so I will be teaching 1/3 of the lesson with my presidency... a blessing that the lesson can easily divide into thirds. I am actually looking forward to focusing my thoughts on something. Ever since Roxy came from the North Pole I have felt very scattered.

Welcome to Dog Life. It gets easier, I promise. It almost sounds like you have a newborn in the house again.
