My house is very quiet today. Last night my mom picked up the little dog to spend a little over a week at "Grandma and Grandpa's." I'm going to be doing some traveling over the next two weekends, so Mom and Dad graciously offered to puppy sit for me.
It's amazing how one little creature works their way into your life so much. My routine is off today. I don't have the dachshund alarm clock. I'm not finding any surprises in my kitchen (row 1 picture 2) There is no one curled up by me feet as I type this. It's a little weird.
Now I understand how parents feel when their kids go away for summer camp.
