Day 374: Love Dogs

Adorable randomness. I dare you not to smile.


Day 136

I am on a campaign – a mission, if you will – for us to get a dog.

I even named our future dog; meet Olaf. Here is a rundown of tactics I’ve used to convince my husband that we absolutely need to get a puppy:

1. Wheedling

2. Pouting

3. Logical conversations

4. Extolling the virtues of a puppy

5. Pretend carrying a puppy and pretend scratching its ears

6. Dropping hints that I want a dog

7. Flat out saying that I want a dog

8. Threatening to get a cat

9. Talking about my previous dogs

10.  Giving a name to the future dog

My husband has thus responded with, “I think what you really want is a baby.”

It’s either he knows me extremely well or he’s an evil genius.


Day 16

Ok, this is a cheat entry. It’s technically Day 17 but I was too tired yesterday to go online. I had a show last night and then household stuff when I got home.

All I can say is that it’s really tough to maintain the house and hold a job. To think, my job does not even require me to be at the office for an x number of hours! I can hardly imagine how others do it, especially those with kids.

Given all these, I have reached two conclusions: (1) going to the laundry shop is the way to go and (2) i’m putting off getting a dog (since we really were waiting to have a child, we were thinking of exercising parental instincts on a puppy. With my husband and I so busy, it would be cruel to get one.)

“If you had the time, would you have loved me?”
