Sunday evening didn't lead to Monday morning? Ugh. Yes, I do try really hard to live in the moment, but Sunday nights are hard. Oh well.
It's been a quiet but nice weekend. I finished both baby hats I was knitting (FO post soon), and wound the yarn for my next two pairs of socks, which will also be gifts. Today I managed to get some cleaning done, and also put away some things and organized, which gave me a feeling of accomplishment. Still more to be done, but I got a good chunk taken care of this afternoon.
I met my friend Andrea for brunch today, and it was so much fun to catch up with her - it's been months, which is way too long, especially considering we used to get to catch up every Sunday when we worked together, and I miss that. After brunch she came over to meet Hamlet, who did not disappoint. He wanted her to cuddle, and shake hands, and play with his duck toy, and she was willing to go along with it. Of course, the Koodle had to come in the room and pretend to be all cute and sweet like he was made of spun sugar. Andrea knows better. She took this sweet picture of Hamlet (and I hope she won't mind I'm sharing it here).
I think he turned a corner, so to speak, this week. He's been happy and content since he's been here, and happy with us, but this week I think he finally decided he was now in our family. When we would get home from work or just being out for a while, he would be so excited, and just could barely contain himself. It's nice to see. He wasn't moping around or anything, but I was just worried he wasn't as comfortable as he could be. Now he seems to be especially happy, which makes us extra happy.
Though Pip feels strongly that I should tell you that this morning, I was washing my face in the bathroom, and Hamlet was lying right across the doorway out in the hall. Pip wanted to come in and snooper-vise what I was doing, and Hamlet just stayed put! Pip had to LEAP OVER THE DOG to come into the bathroom, and his decision-making process alone meant I was nearly finished by the time he got inside. Even worse? THE DOG still just stayed there, if you can believe it! This entire event caused a great deal of commentary ... ;-)
Here's hoping that all of us have a good week, with time to relax and no one blocking our way.
