Back to Work

It was a long flight home yesterday and then the time zone change made it feel even later. Technically we went to bed at around 2 am even though the clock said 11. Our bodies were still on east coast time. Morning came very early and we were both out the door to our jobs. I’m busy digging out from the pile in my inbox and my emails. I am making headway so there’s that.

On Sunday night Lion wasn’t horny. We’d done a lot of walking on our vacation and he was wiped out. Last night, however, he said he was horny. Oops. So sorry. I was ready Sunday night when he wasn’t and he was ready Monday night when I wasn’t. Tonight, between picking the dog up from the kennel, figuring out dinner, doing an emergency load of laundry so we can make it through the rest of the week and whatever else needs our attention, we may be on the same page about his horniness. At this point I’m game. Who knows what I’ll feel like later.

Yesterday Lion spilled some food on his shirt but he was able to get rid of the stain so it wasn’t visible. That’s our rule. If he spills something and can get rid of the stain then he’s safe. I’ve even gotten Tide Stain Sticks to help him. I’m not heartless. I’ll do what I can to keep him out of trouble. The rest is up to him.

When we dropped off the rental car yesterday, Lion got a little heated with the staff. He kept asking why she was making such a big deal over where he parked and I asked him why he was making such a big deal over her asking him to move the car. It was a little confusing but if he just relaxed it would have been fine. I think he needs some correction for that.

On the other hand, on the plane Lion had an aisle seat and the twenty-something in the middle seat apparently had the bladder capacity of a chihuahua because he kept climbing over Lion every ten minutes to use the rest room. Lion kept his cool. He didn’t say anything. He didn’t try to trip him. He was a good boy. I was across the aisle and I was ready to trip the idiot. Get an aisle seat near the bathroom if you go that often.

Anyway, we’ll see how things go tonight. I think we’ll still be too wiped out but I’m open to snuggling and playing.
