It's 6:00 am and I am up on the computer because Dave (my dog) has been waking me up at 5:30 am in the morning to go out. (Sissy, the female could hold it in 24 hours, if forced to.) In fact, on Saturday he got me out of bed at 3:30 am. I didn't really want to get up but he's got a bladder issue so I dragged my half conscious body up and took the dogs out. Fortunately, it was Saturday and I went back to bed and slept until 9:30, which is the latest I've ever slept in a while.
I'm learning to live with it because there is no sense in punishing the dog for something he can't control although I really feel like stabbing him to death at the moment he wakes me. But I know what it feels like to really have to go in the morning and Dave is a dog with only so much control, especially with his bladder problems. Plus, he turned 13 on Jan 3 and that is really, really old--especially for a Dalmatian.
So, instead of trying to grab a quick 30 minute extra snooze before I get ready to go to work, I jump on the computer to check my emails and be a good SITS member. I had a little extra time so I decided to see if I could squeeze out a little post before jumping in the shower. This is about as much squeezing as I could muster.
So thanks for stopping by. I know a couple of you have given me some awards and I swear I will get to your blogs to thank you and post a thank you here. I really will. Eventually. It'll happen. I just have a hard time focusing on too many things at the same time and with the BIG trade show in Orlando coming up the first week of February, my show opening on February 13th, and my focus on losing weight before I leave for Orlando (13 lbs. lost so far), I don't have much left to give. But I love all my visitors and I love reading all your blogs so I'll be back in the swing of things soon.
