Warm Smiles

Well the snow is back. Everyone is off their game because Chris is awake and working in his office. He got up because his mind is trying to figure out how to get the monitor working correctly. His replacement monitor arrived yesterday courtesy of two guys in a small semi-truck. I was able to leave work for about 45 minutes to come home and take delivery. The girls were on their best behavior too. I was very proud of them. The guys were impressed at how much the girls listened (I had Essie go back and get the frisbee she left outside). Even Stella did not jump up on them as she is want to do with new friends. I was very surprised at that. I don’t look at the girls as “trained” so much as that is how they are.

I woke up this morning to a soft, warm line of dogs beside me. I wasn’t crowded but it was just like when Moosie was alive and stretched out the length of me while we slept. It was a comfort.

I don’t really want to go to work today. I will be in the deli and be closing by myself. Not a fan as I will work back there once a month and I know just enough to make me dangerous. The new manager has changed so much back there that I have no idea where things are let alone what needs to be done. So we’ll see how later I end up staying.

I feel like I don’t know what I am doing this morning. I think this needs to be done and that needs to be done but wait, what about this… Then there are the moments I just stare into space. Stella is asleep on the couch on her back. Since Chris is up I am pretty sure that Essie is back in the bed although she might be in with Chris. I have tried to keep the girls busy when I can. They got a good playtime when the guys dropped the monitor off. I think we will try to play quietly once I get this posted. And on that note I think I will wrap this up. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
