Settled Down

After the celebration of the holidays and the flurry of activity when my son and daughter-in-law moved in ... and after the Christmas take-down of all the decorations ... things have finally settled down in our household.

The new normal has evolved in my life ... it kind of looks like this ...
  • Early to bed, early to rise - now I have working folks in my house, and they are up early and out the door.  So I am up early to be with my grand dogs.  No more staying up till 11:00 pm or midnight - not if I want to find my way to the coffee pot and happy dog faces at 6:00 am.
  • Dog walks, dog walks, dog walks.  All the time.  Meaty so loves his pee breaks.  No more waiting for 8 to 10 hours for is papa to come home for a pee break.  Now he has "pee breaks on demand."  Life is good.
  • Grimace is my new companion for visits to Assisted Living. Meaty prefers laying on the couch.
  • The kitchen table is busy almost every night - not just on the weekends.
  • Company while I blog and canine editorial suggestions are the norm - Grimace has very definite ideas.
It has been a very busy period, but the routine is now settling down.  And I am loving it.


  1. How lovely to have a house full of family.

  2. That sweet little face! He does look like he is living the life!

  3. I love the photo of Grimmy! So happy to be with Grandma...the way life was supposed to be!


Yes, you do want to comment! I can see it in your face:-)
