This is what I saw when I opened my eyes Saturday morning. Sammi had it in her mouth just perfectly so that it was facing me and about 6 inches from my face. She was patiently waiting for me to wake up and play. It made me laugh out loud, and I was in a good mood all day. What would I do without my dogs to make me smile and laugh like that all the time?
The party went off without a hitch, and things couldn't have gone better. Everyone had a good time, including me. I really didn't have time to get all nervous since the first guests arrived nearly a half hour early! I didn't have my make-up on completely yet, my hair was sweaty, and my nails weren't done either. Whatever. It didn't matter.
Everyone left at 1:30 a.m. Barnaby and I were still so wound up we did dishes and had everything cleaned up before 2:30. I stayed up and read a magazine until 3:30 and finally went to sleep. The dogs let us sleep until 8:20 Sunday morning, and we had a lazy day just watching TV and messing around the house. Yesterday evening, we did two loads of laundry and watched 4 episodes of Desperate Housewives we had recorded. Two more and we'll be caught up on the season.
I feel like shopping today, but I need to resist the urge and not spend the money. I think I'll go in the living room and try to read a book.
