I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Foster puppies 296/365Liza
I put our name on the Animal Defense League’s foster puppy list. I thought it would be a way to ease us into being dog owners. And, you know, I was trying to find a way to inject a bit more crazy around here.
Picture me up before 5am tending to lonely puppies with active intestines. Now picture me a bit more crazed. Where was the rest of the family? The ones who really wanted a puppy? Fast asleep and warm in bed. I gave everybody the silent treatment while I inhaled coffee later. They were oblivious to my frazzled collapse, though Eliot did say he’d take care of the puppies the following morning, and I could borrow his earplugs. EARPLUGS?!? He was using EARPLUGS???
What’s making me happy:
Running: I felt like dog poop today, and then it poured rain which squelched the last cinder of my running determination.
