I’ve been up for 4 hours. During that time, I’ve accomplished this much – I read a few pages about creating something for my class, I read emails for my class and I tossed a ball, endlessly tossed a ball, tossed a ball over and over and over.
That’s what I’ve done. Because someone will not only NOT take a nap, he can’t be more than an inch away from me while he’s awake, unless he’s chasing the above mentioned ball.
I love this puppy. I have loved him from the day he crawled into my lap and wrapped his paws around my arm and made me his. But I could so seriously use a break sometimes.
I never had kids because I knew I was way too selfish for that. I need me time, I am the princess and the high maintenance soul in this house. It’s been a struggle for me to so rarely get that me time anymore. I know he’ll outgrow the intense need to have the ball tossed constantly, that at some point he’ll learn to settle at my feet and once again I’ll have time to read, knit, write, whatever – without having a ball spit at me, and him barking in my face.
I’m not one to wish away time, except for Winter, that can go to Hell in a hot minute and be over now, every single year, but I really can’t wait for the day when he’s dog and not so much puppy.
Also, this is just me venting. 🙂
Training will commence when he wakes up – because he FINALLY gave in!
and he slept for approximately 15 minutes. Sigh
Completely understandable. But puppyhood goes by so fast. Try to enjoy whilst you can. I know, it’s hard!
