The Joys of Home and Dog Ownership

Yesterday, was a busy day! Jim and I both worked half a day, then worked on Christmas shopping. It was beautiful here yesterday, so Janey was outside for 85% of the day. She was in the sunroom during Parent's Night Out, and left us TWO presents. Then, after I had gone to bed, Jim was up, and she left TWO MORE presents on the bath mat (her preferred place of relief). SERIOUSLY? She was outside ALL DAY and it's like she doesn't understand that she needs to take care of that stuff when she is out.

Before all of that happened, Jim was taking some trash out, and opened the storm/screen door in the sunroom and the door (and frame) completely fell off the back of the house. Luckily, we have another door, but it is drafty so we gotta get that fixed today.

As a funny story amidst all of the "strife" is this: Janey sleeps at the foot of the bed every night. She is too afraid to jump down, so she lays there all night. It's quite nice. Well, yesterday, Jim decided to sleep in instead of getting up at 5:30 and working out. Janey didn't get to go on a walk, and she was apparently unhappy. She walked up the bed in between Jim and I, proceeds to SIT on Jim's head until he moves. As he sits up and declares that he was laying there, she turns over and rubs against his pillow and ends up on her back, wanting him to rub her belly. It was so funny...
