Mom’s back was bothering her a little so she got up early and got the heating pad on it. She was letting dad sleep in so I had to stay in my crate. Apparently I make a lot of noise and will wake him. That is okay it was a little early for me so I just lay were I could keep an eye on her. Then after she messed around on the computer she looked around the RV and decided it was a mess. Dad was stirring so I got to get up. Mom started tidying up and the dusting and then dad joined in with the vacuum. The place had got according to mom a pig sty whatever that is. After the house was clean and we had all eaten mom started getting this cool stuff called batting out. She also had fabric and all kinds of neat toys. Well what a shock I had when I found out none was for me; in fact I was not allowed to touch any of it. Before mom could get me lying on a down stay out of the way I tore off a little corner of the batting stuff (hehehe). Well for the next hour mom and dad worked on measuring, cutting and pinning fabric and batting. Mom had everything ready to make my friend Meadow’s feather bed for Christmas, all she had to do next was sew it. They also cut out everything for my new travel mat. Mom is going to make me a custom one just the right size and weight. She is also adding ties so it can be rolled up and tied. Then she is adding a removable shoulder strap. It is a new design so she still has to make the final decisions. So once this was all done I was released but all the fun stuff was already put away. So I figured great now maybe we can play. Nope I was wrong mom began sewing. What a boring morning, first they cleaned then they worked on fabric none of which revolved around me. Mom took a break from sewing and yep you guessed hopped on the computer. Well I had been patient enough, I went into major pester mode. Well it worked she got down on the ground and played with me for about ½ hour. I was happy and content after that. Then mom had a bunch of paperwork to do. Finally I think she is done for the day. We all had dinner and mom and I are hanging out on the couch. Wait, oh no she just told dad she thinks she may do a little more sewing tonight, uuhhhggggg. Oh well everything cannot be about me I guess, not sure why though.

boy - this Christmas stuff is awful Dora, isn't it?
I can't believe the toys are not for you!!
This is no fair. Mom's got to talk to your mom about it little girl.
She is so busy, wow, mom is sitting here with big eyes. She told dad that she will start sewing, too. I think this is the, mhhhh, 3049th time she told him that she learn how to sew with a machine. Not one has she made an attempt. Therefor she can do knitting and all the other stuff with threads and needles.
We had to endure horrible things. Such as wearing a knitted sweater, scarfs, hats, mutts with "fingers", a tail warmer (!!!) and stuff. Once she made dog shoes for indoors. Boy were we skating around :O) I will check if I can find the pictures.
Mom is totally overwhelmed only by writing Christmas cards. She has never done this before and now she practices, because her handwriting is so dreadful. It used to be so nice, but all the computer writing messed it up *sigh* Christmas..............
Hugs for you and your mom and dad, Jojo and sonja
