Hello, dear readers, and welcome to Thursday. It’s a weird week.
I woke up yesterday and just could not get myself out of bed. I ended up calling in sick to work and slept until around 11. Thankfully my husband usually takes the morning dog walking shift, and they were kind enough to let me rest. I spent a lot of the day reading, which was lovely. Managed a shorter-than-usual walk with Nova after dinner, and then we had week 2 of obedience classes, which was fun, but also extremely overstimulating for everyone.
This morning I overslept. I’m working but still feeling pretty tired. Hoping coffee helps. I’m 99% sure this is all just another round of allergies – on top of being sleepy, I’ve also been sneezing a lot and my nose and ears itch. It’s just annoying.
Nova’s personality is continuing to come out – this is our third week with her, and we are learning she is quite the opinionated sassypants when she wants to do something (i.e. dig in the couch) and is told no. Thankfully she still doesn’t bark much (*knock on wood*), but she does talk back a little bit. We are learning that she loves attention and will demand it if she doesn’t feel she’s enough of the focus in the room. She’s also quite the hunter…last Friday, she caught a pigeon right at the end of our evening walk! Thankfully, I was able to get it out of her mouth and it fluttered away. (Also, thankfully, birds don’t carry rabies and after checking in with the vet, they let us know we probably didn’t have much to worry about. She’s been fine since, albeit a little hyper-focused on birds when we’re outside.)
I think that’s it from me for today – short and sweet is about all I have the energy for. I hope you’re all hanging in there!
