Affirmative Relationships (Day 4)
So how do I remedy that. By watching a TV show on Netflix. You know the kind of show that gets your heart beating fast. My kind of show...crime fighting, political, counter terrorism....24! I never watched 24 when it was televised (probably too busy with very young children to watch television) but boy..it is highly entertaining. I made the boys' beds with fresh smelling sheets. While doing this I let my mind wander to when they are in college...or married...quickly I ran to watch another episode of 24. The president was making poor decisions...that got my mind off of being a mother of boys who will get married one day and go off to be close to their wives' parents.
Krypton's Kitchen. I loved that we invited friends over for dinner. It was something to look forward to besides my superheros return. It made my Thursday...my Day 4 without them...so much more bearable.
Before Chip and Linda got to the house...my thought was...I love candles, I should light a few. However with the smell of this...
Chip and Linda are dog lovers...animal lovers! I knew they were gonna be okay with Dodger. You see Dodger loves, I mean LOVES people. He really believes that everyone wants to be with him and play with him. He is convinced (and I've tried to convince him otherwise) that when we people come over they are here for one purpose..to play with him, to love on him, to see only him. He is a very obedient puppy, except for the jumping up on you when you walk through the door. I'm working on that. Case in point...Linda walks through the door and he is fine. He sniffed and wagged his tail and was very excited, but she just stood there and let him do his thing. He didn't jump on her. Then he met Chip. There was instant love! He has been missing his brothers...until now...he has found his Chip! OH they frolicked and played and laughed and kissed. Chip got him so excited, Dodger was so happy, so elated, so intoxicated..full of joy...he vomited on Chip.
Did I just say that? OH yes. Dodger (for the record) has NEVER done that before. Right before we're to sit and have that delicious dinner...Dodger puked all over Chip's very nice clothes. Chip was awesome. Totally didn't want Dodger to get in trouble. Linda and I were both thankful Mike knows how to handle vomit. It's always nice to have a nurse in the house. Chip got all cleaned up..and Dodger finally calmed down. (Honestly if you ask me...Chip was kind of sad that Dodger rested. I think Chip wanted to play some more!)
