Getting It All Done

What was I thinking??? Sure, puppies are cute, but I'd honestly forgotten how much work they are.
And to add to the stress, Allie isn't enjoying having him around at all. I can't help but feel enormously sorry for her, but
I'm just hoping she'll get used to it eventually! I've sought the advice of some dog gurus and we're doing all we can to
make life as calm as possible and enjoyable for both dogs. Noah is a real cutie though and I am definitely having fun with
him. Puppy classes start next week, yippee!! It's like dealing with two children though, you have to devote equal time to them
as well as somehow find time to do all the other things in life that must get done.
Thankfully, once Noah is worn out he does crash, so I grab an hour here and there before I have to go take him outside again.
I wonder if we will ever reach the point where these two will live together in harmony. I'm not sure!
I wish I had taken that time-management course at the ACFW conference. I think I could have used it.
This is actually a time when I can say I'm glad I'm not published yet. I can't imagine being on deadline and dealing with everything
else going on right now! Still, I have to remember that I got myself into this. Life will be madness for a while, but it will get better.
I'm currently accepting donations of chocolate and Merlot, incase anyone missed my birthday and feels horribly guilty about it.

I am sure it will be fine with time..

And think of the fun you will have with the classes...

ANd I would send chocolate and merlot - do you have Thorntons chocolate shops over there? I would send those..but then that would condemn you to a few hours at the gym...

What a dilemma!!

Hope you not missing Sarah too much...

In our case the older pet is a 13 year old cat. George is Not. Amused.

At first he could put the puppy ball of fluff into retreat quickly, but puppy grew so fast and now out-masses the cat by about 5:1.

There are some interesting fights in our house...
