Every year this happens... the snow comes, it gets COLD and dark and icy and, did I mention cold? Momsie becomes a hermit and thus, we all end up hermits as well.
Take this week, for example. Monday, Mom hit the sleep button FOUR times before she finally got up and let us outside. Finally, she dragged herself out of bed and tossed us out. It was MINUS 8 degrees out there!!! Needless to say, we were all hopping around, trying to keep as many feet as possible off the freezing, cold, wet snow.
When she let us in, I decided to hide under the desk instead of running into the dog room to go in my crate. Surprise, I got away with it, hehehe. There is a nice bed under that desk, and it is right beside the furnace vent, although Mom DOES keep the thermostat really, really low while she is at work.
Fast forward to 5 pm, Mom comes home from work, has to go to the bathroom cuz the cold does that to her, and she steps right on a tootsie roll I had left on the bathroom rug. NOT MY FAULT... she's the one that made us go out when it was soooo cold out there in the morning. Now really, how can a dog do his business outside when he can't even stand up on all four feet????
The rest of the week hasn't gone much better.
This morning, Mom didn't get up until almost 8 am. Wouldn't you know, the furnace thermostat shuts back down at 8 am so we were freezing once again! I decided it might even be warmer IN my crate. I am happy to say, it was!
AND, the weather man PROMISED us it would be warm today...definitely above freezing and even above normal. Well, guess what, he was way, way wrong. The high didn't even get above freezing and it was cloudy and damp cold. (I said DAMP cold, not that other word, although it would be descriptive as well, I think!)
The dampness made it even COLDER in our house! Mom came home early, but she was complaining about being frozen so she went grocery shopping because she said it was warmer in the car and in the store. Sure, what about US????
I suspect we will be going to bed early tonight because we sleep in a warm, heated waterbed. I can't wait!
How long 'til Spring?
