By now you all know that my mama retired. Whatever that means. It doesn’t seem to be about me so I’m not all that interested. But today I’m starting to figure out that life as I knew it is over!
First of all, mama was home all weekend, which is a little strange cause she usually goes to work at least some of the time. That’s my favorite time to nap and get ready for an adventure. When she gets home from work on the weekends we almost always go somewhere fun and she lets me sniff and sniff and sniff while she walks around sighing and daydreaming and stuff.
But this weekend was all rainy and we didn’t do anything exciting. Mostly she napped on the sofa. I bugged her a lot to try to get her to play but she was in some sort of coma, you know?
Anyway…today is Monday and she’s supposed to get up early, so I did my usual…and got her out of bed at 4:40 a.m. She did not seem pleased. But you know what she did? She just went out to the sofa and went back to sleep! Huh! So I went to sleep for awhile too. Then I woke her up again and she told me to go lay down. So I did though I was confused. This went on for some time till finally she got up and took me out and then we went back to sleep again!
And then she didn’t go to work!! She just hung around all morning! What’s with that? I am missing my princess nap! How am I supposed to keep up my princess looks without my late morning nap?
And then she took me outside and she started weeding!
Well! I LOVE weeding cause I get to be outside a long time with my mama and I get to bark at all the cars that go by, and the jogger, and my neighbor, and a truck, and a duck, and a rabbit, and my neighbor again.
After awhile my mama said I needed to go inside. But then she bagged up the garbage…so I just had to bark some more! Geeze mama, if you want me to be quiet you’ve got to sit down woman!
So anyway, I think my mama’s new full time job is weeding. She says we’re going to go outside every single morning and work on the gardens. Or she might just mow over the top of them. We’ll see.
I’m undecided if this retirement thingy is good for me. So far I haven’t seen any adventures come out of it; mostly I’ve just gotten yelled at for barking too much. I kinda liked it when she went to work, but I guess I’ll adjust. Maybe tomorrow morning I’ll wait till 5:15 to get her out of bed.
You think she’ll like that better?
