Busy Day


Well, mom had a busy day. Well, actually, a couple of busy days. She cleaned the carpet in the living room, play room and computer area. Of course, before she cleaned the carpet, she moved all the furniture and vacuumed everywhere, dusted everything, and put all sorts of stuff away. She signed the boy up for skiing, ($200.00) measuring his height, (4'11") his weight, (79 lbs) his head size for the helmet (adult medium)(I think). She paid the COBRA for the insurance for the boy and dad ($599.00) (ouch), fed the boy lunch and made dinner.

On Saturday she finished cleaning the carpet and put everything back together, returned the carpet cleaner, visited memere to get some of memere's famous meat stuffing and then she took the boy to cello (there was no karate!),

Today, she stripped the beds, made the beds, did all the laundry, and then started to put up the Christmas lights. She got the bush lights up and 3/4 of the roof lights up before she got sidetracked with lights that weren't lit. After some playing, she got 3 sets of roof lights all squared away. She has three sets that all light halfway and mom has gone through every bulb but can't figure out why the other half isn't lighting. She and the boy did manage to play a bunch of air hockey. Mom won one game. The boy smoked her in the other.

Meanwhile, I am doing what I do best. Relaxing. Don't I look good? Don't you think mom ought to take after me more? Maybe that's why she's been sleeping so late. What do you think?

I agree Roxy. For some reason this time of year is stressful.Mom says it's the "Season to be jolly" but everyone gets too busy trying to make things perfect,they get stressed.
Too bad the beans would not be more like us and take it easy. Isn't that how you get to be jolly?

You look very nice as always,but a bit lonely :( You need your Mom!!!

You're right. We 4-paws are always right! But does anyone listen to us? Noooooooooo! Do we have emotional breakdowns because the house isn't clean, the meal isn't ready on time(yeah, we do over that one!), the house isn't decorated to perfection, etc? Nooooooooooo.

If you watched her do all that work, you NEED a good rest.

Your mom is working too hard, I think! Resting is good, too.

What's up with humans? My Mom was the same thing -- working all weekend. I think I take after my Daddy since he didn't do very much . . . like me!
