So yesterday did improve after the morning bedroom session. Apparently they are learning that mom means business!
Due to a scheduling conflict, we went to see "Marley and Me" yesterday. Great movie, loved it, knew it as I had read the book a few years back (actually, the Brit and I listened to it on iPod on the way to New Jersey for a long weekend away but reading/ listening, eh, sue me). So, here is what I have decided (only in fun, sort of as I am kind of serious but I don't know if it will ever happen):
I have a plan in my head that I have been making up since yesterday, despite what the youth group said today which I will get to in a minute. I want a puppy. A rescue puppy, one day. A Lab or a Golden, but I will not pay a breeder when so many dogs, even purebreds need homes. My plan entails my wonderful hubby getting me a puppy for my birthday some year as not that my birthdays have been bad, but just memorable. We haven't gone away on any amazing trip or anything like that, as lots of people don't and though birthdays are generally pleasant, a puppy would be really, really memorable. A male puppy. Bailey (yes, I have even named him). My little made up story in my head includes me going on walks now that I am in much better health with Bailey. I would not be worried about strangers because Bailey would not allow anyone to attack me. Yes, he would need to be housebroken and I would need to poop scoop and that is okay. I will train him and love him and keep him for my very own, George (Robyn, what was that from???). I'm very excited about my future puppy!
The youth group today, when I told them I wanted a puppy, said "Well, The Brit is away for two weeks, just let it be there when he gets home! What's he going to do!" Kirk said they got severa of their cats that way; when papa was away! But I would not do that.
I also think I may look into seeing if I can volunteer an afternoon a week at the SPCA. I was thinking of finding some sort of volunteer work anyway, but I don't know what their minimum time requirements are. We'll see.
Does he not have my name written all over him?
