Coffee & What I'm Thankful For

What am I doing ?
Just an old cat lady
trying to get a baby and an old lady
used to each other.

Jodie still tries to eat Maddy Jeans tail.
Maddy Jean has had enough of this.
The last two nights, I've had Maddy Jean
come upstairs and sleep with me.

Jodie Belle starts to cry around three am.
We let her.
Then, around seven we are up with her.

She just wants to be with us.
Only Maddy Jean doesn't want to be with her.
Big problem, as I got the puppy for Maddy Jean.

I hope as time goes by,
that they get along.

They do play in the back yard,
In between me telling Jodie not to chew on her sister.

Oh well, I'm sure things will improve.
They always do .. right.

So, I'm thankful that my old dog
hasn't gotten too cranky
at my new one.

I'm thankful that my new one
does sleep a bit.

I'm thankful that I've made it almost two weeks
now with this little one.

I'm thankful that I still had an empty
sprayer bottle under the sink.

I'm thankful that the cats
haven't decided to gang up on the puppy.

So far they've stayed away or
been able to jump over the gates in time.

I'm thankful that there is coffee.
I need it so.

I'm thankful that my desk chair is made of
some sort of chewable hard plastic.

I'm thankful that I got any sleep last night.

I'm thankful that there isn't a hole in
the back fence area cause either
my old dog would run away
or she'd push the puppy through it
and when I'd ask where Jodie was,
Maddy Jean would pretend she didn't know.

I'm thankful that my new puppy
looks cute with a wet nose.

Seriously, what is so fascinating
about a Golden Retriever's tail ?

And, that's about it for this
Thankful Thursday.

More coffee needed !!!

Couldn't help but laugh over this, though it's obviously not so fun for Maddy Jean...or you. Or the cats.

Fingers and paws crossed it all works out well in time, and that you get sufficient sleep and caffeine to cope!

Great post, my friend....enjoy all of this....little ones grow up too fast!

Aw, puppies grow out of their adorable, and overly annoying, stage so fast you'll soon be wondering where the time went. They will work things out as the pup grows and the rest of the house gets used to her.

Cute puppy. She'll be full grown soon and will feel right at home with the pack.

It will all work out - just takes some time. We have an award for you on our blog - please do stop by to pick it up.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
