A fine mess – part 1

Hallway with pillow fluff scattered by dog

I’m generally feeling stretched, scattered and frazzled at the moment, and the reasons for this are many, but one thing I am sure of is that NaBloPoMo is responsible for me inflicting some benign neglect on our puppy in the evenings.

There is a little bit of time when I make room for the blog after my youngest has gone to bed, and I’ve noticed that I’m waiting to take the dog out until he starts to do a quiet little whimper (which means he really has to go).

Tonight, I was also confronted by the remains of a disemboweled cushion, scattered across the hallway into our home office, which means that several of us were not paying sufficient attention to the dog at some point during the evening. I can’t answer for the other family members, but I’ve got NaBloPoMo for my excuse.

More about the messes in my life tomorrow, if I’m still feeling like it. Meh.

  1. You know what they say about dogs – permanent toddlers – you’ve just added an extra “kid” to your roster, and that’s what they do all right – act out when they feel a lack of attention!. I sacrificed two antique, inherited from my grandmother, walnut side tables to our dog when we first got her – same reason, so I get what you’re going through.

    lol…”meh”….anyone would know you have a teenager hanging around you 🙂

    1. Oh, you must have been gutted about those side tables! I’m grateful we haven’t lost anything that significant (yet), though he has certainly made his mark. It’s a good thing we love him.

      Can’t believe I let a ‘meh’ slip. The teen influence is indeed starting to show!

I'd love to hear your thoughts
