The Penalty of Procrastination
Life inside a Puppy Bubble means that other things in life fall by the wayside -- like cleaning, for example. Well, except Puppy Central, which is always clean! Raising a litter well requires a level of commitment and dedication of time and energy that does not leave much space for other things, and so I have learned to (mostly) be okay with living serenely in the Puppy Bubble while most everything around me is in a bit of chaos.
There are some things I stay up on -- like walking the other dogs. I am obsessive about that and besides, tired dogs are easier to live with. Last night we assembled bags of baked goods and etc. for my husband's crew and colleagues so that got done (and yes, I did the baking!). My laptop gives me the ability to work and so I have been getting quite a bit of writing and other work done. But things are a mess around here and I owe people emails and etc. -- I really need a Personal Assistant and can you believe my husband refuses to do that?! Sometimes (often?) men are so unreasonable!
All this is to say that it is because of the puppies that I must (perish the thought) do last minute shopping this morning!! I should raise the price of the puppies for this huge sacrifice but no amount of money can compensate for the horror of having to shop on Christmas Eve. If only there were not so many people like me cramming the stores :(
Oh well -- at least I have the adorable puppies to make me smile! Hudson is in two pictures today -- one with Cadi and he is biting his foot in another. Whitby is also in a picture with Cadi and in a close-up. There is a close-up of Geneva -- she is a really cute puppy! And Toronto is biting one of his siblings in another picture. It is harder to get pictures now because they want to be in my lap -- not a bad problem to have, I know, and sure beats last minute shopping!
I hope your day is free of procrastinators like me! Thanks for visiting us today and check tomorrow for a special puppy surprise!
