I’m already tired of going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark. I know the time will change in a few weeks, but it will be dark for both legs of my commute sooner or later. It just throws off my whole night. I get home around 5:30 and it just feels like it’s already 8. Stupid winter! I don’t think I’m the only one it throws off. Lion doesn’t like it either.

Last night I took my shower as usual. I don’t like to snuggle with Lion until my hair is almost dry. Why have my hair get him all wet? I guess I took a little longer than normal because Lion asked if I wanted to snuggle or if I’d be on my iPad all night. (If he was wearing his training collar I could have zapped him.) When I moved over to snuggle, he was in the mood for love anymore. He said he’d been horny earlier but he guessed it was too late. I missed my opportunity.

Tonight I’m going to get started earlier. And I’m thinking we need to do something other than “just” edging. Maybe some clothespins or maybe I can tie up his balls. I haven’t done anything like that lately. I’m sure I’ll come up with something he’ll like. Or hate. Either way works. The point is to give Lion some much needed attention. I think we’ve slipped a little bit in the past few weeks. And by we, I mean me. Lion is usually up for anything I want to do to him.

Tonight is also punishment night. My pet has already alerted me to that fact. I don’t think he has anything on his list this time. Of course, there are a few hours between now and then for him to commit an offense or two. He’s been a very good boy lately. If he keeps it up I may have to resort to maintenance swats again just to keep us in practice.
