Junior is sleeping on my bed now, listening to some dog sleep music on YouTube. I have been disturbing his rest since about two this morning when I woke up. My sleep pattern has been disturbed today. When am I going to learn that there are better things in life than partying?
My sister is supposed to stop by this afternoon to meet Junior. She seems to think she is an expert on animals, but her own dogs are unruly and a bit wild. I have had the dog for just over a week now and he seems to be settling in. He had a couple accidents yesterday, but it was nothing to clean up. I have to get to the dump either today or tomorrow as the trash is piling up around here. I have to get to Kroger sometime soon as well.
I have a cup of tea steeping in the kitchen. The house is very quiet. We are supposed to get some snow next week, but from the reports I saw they are not expecting a lot. We will see when it comes. So far this winter hasn’t been so bad.
Anyway, I have this new age dog sleep music going in my room now and a tired puppy who is having dog dreams. My girlfriend called me on the phone yesterday and we got connected again on Google Hangouts. Her old account got hacked she says so we haven’t traded photos in over a month now. I sent her a pic of Junior sleeping on my bed yesterday morning. Last year she was after me to get a cat or a dog. I guess she knows how alone I feel, an old man with one friend and a father in his twilight years.
I think I will explore the reader here for a while and try to find something interesting and informative to read. I watched the news earlier. New president, more executive orders, new senate, COVID-19, it’s the same old story. It would be nice if I could learn how to train dogs, but Junior is learning as he seems to be very smart. It’s a big change to my life to have a dog child, but it is also something positive. Hopefully things work out with my Sister today and she doesn’t freak out because I have an animal to take care of now.
