Damn Dog and other things

What a day and it never ends. Bob called me in to see how elle has managed to find a sleeping space without any problems. Her bed has been taken away for cleaning purposes and so she found another one. But wasn’t that supposed to be my spot? See photo at the bottom.

And then there was a conversation with a co-worker today who asked how the girls were. I responded “Mag’s is learning how to winterize a car; my second, Liz, has learned why one takes care of the tires; and my third, Kat, has scheduled an appointment for her driving test with the DMV.” My coworker’s response “sounds like they all are doing well, just like their mother.” And then she said I didn’t know how to accept a compliment. Maybe she’s right, especially since I left out lots of the conversation. I felt flattered by this woman’s comments.

MIght be getting some new novels. Several people at work have volunteered to bring in some extra books for the software book exchange shelf. One person even promised to bring in some sci-fi and lawyer novels. Another person said they would bring in a book of the New Yorker Comics. So I might get some good reading material. It’s good payback for taking in lots of brand new sets of solar activated thread – thread that changes color when the sun shines on it. I was not going to use it and this person was happy with their new loot. Plus she promised to teach a class in knotted beading at work, so in the long run I’ve come out ahead.

So overall life is good except for the damned dog who’s sleeping on my bed.



Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
