Sleepy day

The girl didn't follow her routine this morning. She got up like normal and took a shower, but instead of putting on clothes and going to work, she plopped down on the bed. Comet and I hopped up for our morning snuggle time. After 5 minutes, she was still snuggling, but then she started snoring. She's not supposed to fall asleep again! Comet stepped on her to wake her up, and she just kinda grunted at him and went back to sleep. Finally, I had to do something. I didn't want her to be late for work. I slammed the bedroom door shut. That usually wakes her up.

It worked. Kind of. She got up and opened the door, then picked up the phone and called somebody. She didn't talk very long, then hung up the phone and went back to bed. I don't know what she was thinking. Today isn't a weekend, and she isn't supposed to stay home. At first I was worried, then Comet convinced me that it would be fun having a bonus day with our girl.

It wasn't much fun though. If she wasn't sleeping on the bed, she was sleeping on the couch. And she turned the air conditioner off and snuggled under a blanket. Is she crazy? It was HOT in the house today. Nobody turns the air conditioning off in the summer in Phoenix.

Every now and then she would wake up, pet us a bit, and then go back to sleep. I tried to get her to play catch, but she didn't follow the rules. She's supposed the throw the toy, then once I grab it, she is supposed to chase me around the house so she can get it to throw again. She actually expected me to bring it all the way back to her. Who made up those crazy rules??

I hope the girl stays home again tomorrow, but she better be more fun!

Even though the girl was boring today, it was still nice to have her home. I got a treat in the middle of the day that I don't get when she is at work. Sometimes, when she wasn't sleeping, she turned on the picture box that makes noise. There was one show on with a bunch of birds making noise. At first, I thought they were inside and I tried to catch them. I just ended up smacking my nose against the picture box. She also watched a show where people were afraid of weird things. One lady was afraid of styrofoam. I don't know how you could be afraid of that. I love it when the girl gets packages and it is full of the little foam peanuts. They are so fun to hide all over the house. Another lady on the show was afraid of her oven. I think the girl might be afraid of her oven. In the year and a half I've lived with her, I've never seen her turn it on!

Sounds like when your girl doesn't go to work, she ends up putting you to work, like bringing the ball to HER or giving you the task to wake her up. Well, at least you got more snuggles today and you got to watch the picture box. That's pretty good.

What, never turned on the oven, wow! Well, if your girl stays home tomorrow, you will have to give her kisses and snuggles, I know when my dad stays home they call it sick, and don't feel well so I give him lots of attention and I am very good!
