Okay, I know that you have missed me over the past couple of days. This week has been one of those wish-I-could-start-over weeks. A week of bad Mondays is perhaps a better way to describe this week. Of course, Sunday-Tuesday we were up late watching the weather. My heart goes out to all those in the southern states neighborhood.
I guess those stressful nights caused weary sleeping habits because, I’ve been drained all week. I know I was like a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Nervous. Scared. Afraid to move away from the TV.
So then there was Wednesday night.
Let me start off with an image… How many of you have seen America’s Funniest Videos?? I just love that show! I laugh for an entire hour each and every Sunday evening!! My son calls it, “Mom’s laughing show.” Okay so anyway, I know you have seen people fall on that show… You know the ones that stumble and running to keep from falling. As they gain momentum the harder they fall…. Alright.. keep that image in your head.
Now if you recall, I have two spaniels and two labs. The labs are referred to as “The Boys.” They are sweet and well… lovable.
Here’s Domino. He is the rowdy younger lab. He.. well.. let’s just say he must have skipped out the day God passed out intelligence.
And then there’s Stewart. He is our Deaf lab. He is much older than Domino but has a passion to dig. If he would come out of the holes you would see that he is a beautiful white dog.
This is about all we see of Stewart on a daily basis!
Well, Wednesday night the boys trapped some critter under our shed. I was awakened by a tools crashing, dogs barking, and just the most awful racket. I jolted out of bed, found shoes and grabbed a flashlight. The boys were circling the shed and stopping to dig out from the edge of it. It took me at least 20 minutes and several dog bones/treats to convince them both to go to the back door. It was decided they were going to sleep in the garage. I managed to get Stewart in the garage without any problem. But Domino was another story all together. He went into his dog house and refused to leave.
I threw in the towel and woke Mark. Mark finally won the Mexican standoff. Domino came into the house and instead of going into the garage, he turned to go down the hall to the bedroom. I leaped into action. I reached out to catch him. I tripped over Ginger, our spaniel, and did the AFV’s stumbling, running, gaining momentum and trying to catch myself going down the hall.
I hit the wall, door frames, and the floor. Domino watched in horror. Mark ran to help me. Domino must have thought his last day on earth had approached because he let himself out the back door. Beautiful graceful, Regina had done it again. I have the carpet burns to prove it. I have hurt all over for two days now!!
Needless to say.. Domino has been extra friendly to me.
As for last night.. Mark said I was giggling all night long in my sleep. I woke him up and funny thing is.. I have no idea what was so funny!! Maybe my trip down the hall was playing on AFV!!!
I hope you enjoy your weekend!! I am headed out to a community wide yard sale tomorrow morning!! This is my favorite time to bargain shop!
