I did get up earlier this morning. Around 8am. But I was in bed by 6:30pm. I felt decent when I got up but, as the day wore on I felt worse and worse. So I hunkered down in bed and read. I couldn’t keep my eyes open past 8pm. I may have been asleep even before that. But I am up and ready to try again!
Poor Archie Bear is trying hard to adjust to our schedules. Both pups are on the love seat behind me. Archie is ready to get his day started once he has eaten his breakfast. Unfortunately that just means he can run around outside for as long as he wants but he has to be quiet once he comes back in. And he tries to be quiet but once he gets going on a bone (it seems to be his morning toy of choice) all bets are off. He is learning the words “shhhhh” and “quiet” though.
Stella is curled up in a wad of blankets wearing her hoodie. I still need to size Archie Bear for his. I am dragging my feet for two reasons. 1. He really doesn’t seem to get cold when he is outside. He goes tearing through the yard playing. 2. He is still growing. With as big as he is at 6 months old I’m not sure how big he will get. I know we will go through several collars.
Oof. Bear has draped himself over my left arm. So I am trying to type this one handed. I want to figure out who we are getting gifts for this year. And I have pulled together a Secret Santa pool at work. And I am doing a horror Secret Santa thing as well. I almost forgot. I have ideas for all of it but I need to organize myself. And do I want to send out cards this year? If I am doing that then I need to start getting addresses. (Since I seem t be going whole hog here, if you want a card too send me your address and I will do my best to get one out to you!)
I need to wrap this up. I don’t have any new photos to share. It is warming up and the snow melt just looks messy. I will share some older ones and try to get some fresh photos for tomorrow. Thanks for reading and stay safe!

And I thought I was busy! I read your posts and can totally empathize! Sleep is the gem that eludes! I’m also enjoying hearing about your Pups. I have three. A 10 year old Yorkiepoo, a two year old Golden and a 7 week old Belgian Malinois/ Malamute mix. Adding the puppy to our little family really ratcheted up my anxiety ( I am also in the middle of starting a new job!) My yorkiepoo is so unenthused about another puppy and my golden isn’t sure if he should play with the pup or eat it. *Sigh* dealing with doggy jealousy is not my idea of a relaxing good time. Fortunately, my husband has loads of patience for not only the dogs, but for me.
Anyhow, keep up the posts. As for a Christmas card? Ahh I can’t even imagine trying to send any out. However, if you have a favorite, perhaps post it on your blog and it will feel like I’ve received one!
Good luck on your peace and quiet, your organizing, and pain relief! I’m cheering you on from here!

Lol! Thank you so much! I try to cut down my stuff but it seems for every one I cut I think, “Hey! That frees me up to do this, this and this!” Sigh… But it keeps things interesting! It is nice to be back to more than one dog. Even if Stella is questioning that decision.
I may follow your suggestion and just post a photo of a card and it can be a virtual Christmas card for everyone.
Best of luck with the new pup! As well as finding your balance! Thanks for the support!❤️🐾
