A Very Monday, Monday

Some Mondays are more “Monday” than others. I was late starting for work because I couldn’t get my buns moving. I couldn’t get logged into a program at work until the admin reset my password. I’ll probably have trouble tomorrow as well because I set it to the same password. My printer needed ink, and someone put the 202A and 206A ink together, so it was fun taking out the wrong ink twice. And various other Monday things are happening.

It shouldn’t be any surprise. The weekend was just like Monday. Lion still slept a lot on Sunday even though he said he was fine to play. He kept falling asleep watching TV without realizing it. By late afternoon, I didn’t feel like whomping him anyway. Maybe he’ll be more awake tonight. The dog woke me up at 6, so I’m not sure I’ll be awake, but we’ll give it a shot. In fairness, I fell asleep a few times for five or ten minutes yesterday.

Lion is bummed out about not getting out of the house. I don’t know what to do to solve that issue. We didn’t try to get the dog into the camper, but I don’t think she would have made it. She’s really not doing well. I tried looking for last-minute hotel rooms so we could take the car and make it easier for the dog to get in and out. There are available rooms, but the non-bedbug-looking hotels are pretty expensive. I’ll keep looking. I don’t want Lion to miss out on the trip. In the meantime, we both have prescriptions at the grocery store, and I think we need to do a Costco run. That will get him out of the house for a little while. Granted, it’s not a trip, but it’s the best I can do right now. I’m also plotting going out to dinner another night if we don’t go on our trip. I need to concentrate on the little wins for getting him out. [Lion — We have coupons for free dinners at a local casino. That might be fun too.]

If we don’t go out tonight, I’ll bring out the spanking bench. This morning, Lion reminded me it was punishment day. I said he doesn’t have anything on the books. He said it didn’t matter because he’s going to be spanked anyway. That’s true, but I think it’s a different mindset between being spanked for breaking a rule and being spanked just because. He agrees—poor Lion butt.
