Gosh…………it isn’t right that we’re not even AT Christmas and my Mom is already so danged busy that I’m not getting suitable lap time. This is just wrong. What’s with that………she’s running around like a chicken with its’ head cut off (gosh that’s an ugly sight!) running errands, doing Cat Scouts stuff until it’s coming out her ears, working on Christmas cards and getting NOWHERE fast, trying to get some shopping done but finding there’s no time AND she hasn’t even started decorating the house yet (which is bound to be noisy).
Sigh………..what’s a guy to do? I follow her around wherever she goes waiting for her to land so I can pop up on her lap but she never lands. If she DOES land, it’s in her room upstairs and she’s ATTACHED to her computer doing something………..I don’t go upstairs any more – too tough on my old legs – Mom will carry me up there but I immediately come back down. Those of you who have known me a while remember when I was constantly camped out in Mom’s office under my afghan tent……those were the days right? Mom wishes I would do that again but I have ZERO interest in that anymore. I’ve moved on…………now that I’m old I am TOTALLY devoted to the living room or basement – period. That’s why I have been known to stand at the bottom of the stairs and SCREAM for Mom to come down immediately if not sooner! I thought I was running this household?!?!?!?!
Mom says EVERYBODY is busy this time of year………yeah I know but I don’t care about “everybody” – I just care about HER! Besides, we’re on Day Three of rain, rain and more rain and I haven’t been able to enjoy my yard AT ALL. This morning before it got really rainy and Mom and I went out for my first walk (4AM) it was so foggy I couldn’t see my Mom and she was on the other end of my leash about four feet away from me! Fog and mist…….and COLD……so it was a quickie walk. Then the fog got WORSE later and then it rained and rained some more. It was a thoroughly disgusting day.
Today is supposed to be nicer……….maybe I can at least go outside and enjoy the yard a bit………….MAYBE.
