Lessons from Boo part three: the hair-raising sequel!


Here's what we learned between 3:00am and 6:00am this morning

  • Sometimes we do things that we know are bad for us {like eating mulch}, and hope that the consequences will skip us. They rarely do.
  • The main event is often not the hardest part...the hardest part happens afterward, when everyone decides the problem has passed. That's when things get really nasty.
  • You can never have too many paper towels.
  • People who work the early shift at the grocery store are really friendly and helpful, even when you're not awake enough to appreciate them. Thanks, Safeway folks...I would've walked around for hours before finding the paper towel aisle.
  • Perspective is everything...when the puppy exploded several months ago, it was mid-winter, freezing cold and miserable. This time there was a full moon, temperate weather (enough to open the windows), and it seemed less daunting. (And he didn't hit me with it, for which I'm terribly grateful.)
So it's now 8am, and I've been awake for five hours. In that time I've cleaned, napped, cleaned some more, gone grocery shopping, cleaned again, made coffee, and am getting ready to steam clean the carpet.

And surprisingly? I'm not grumpy at all. Concerned about Boo, sure, but I'm pretty sure that he just ate something that didn't agree with him. Sleepy? Oh, yes. But I'm looking forward to a nap on the patio in the sun this afternoon. And with a second cup of java, new paint on the toes, and the Sunday crossword a day early, this Saturday is just fine.
