I have some work stuff I need to do, school stuff. Blah! Right now I am just chilling because it’s bedtime. I went to see a movie alone tonight, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. I really liked it. It lived up to the hype!
I did some apartment cleaning today. Dishes, laundry, bedroom cleaning. Picked up garbage all over. It felt good. I’ve been a lot better about keeping my place clean since I got sober. And my Mom can’t help me out here, so it’s just me on my own.
The dogs were happy today. They were playing all over the place. Cried with happiness when I came home from the laundromat and then later when I came home from the movie. Actually Little Mister is the crybaby and then Posey growls at him because she thinks he is being dramatic. It’s kind of funny. The first thing I always say when I come home is “Be nice to him!” He’s an old man dog, he can cry when I come home. He always has anyway. Posey dances. She’s pretty sweet.
I didn’t wash my sheets last weekend, and I regretted it. Posey chewed up some things in my bed and two weeks of orts accumulating is terrible. It’s like sleeping on sandpaper. But I just put on the new sheets and it feels really nice and the dogs are sleeping on the bed all happy.
Sometimes when I get stressed out, and feeling alone, I am really glad I have my dogs. It’s a lot of responsibility being a dog owner. Like I can’t leave them alone all day, the longest day I am away from them is Thursdays when I have class at 9am and then class again until 6pm. And it takes 40 minutes to get home. So I come back and spend Thursday nights at home with them. And I can’t be out very late either, because they need someone home so they can go to bed. I don’t think it’s the same now, but when I did night shifts and Little Mister was alone (before Posey!) he used to whine and howl at night. He does not do well alone all night. So I come home and spend all my nights with them.
Someday I am gonna have a girlfriend. And if sleep overs happen, they are going to have to happen at my place, so that the dogs aren’t alone. And Posey is gonna have to get used to this whoever person sleeping in our bed. And just being around. Posey has issues with strangers, she is very suspicious of them. But if people keep coming around she gets used to them. There were some cousins and my Auntie Beth who would come to the house that she loved. She really loves Auntie Beth for some reason. Like she will climb her and wriggle around her head crying with happiness when she sees her. It’s kind of funny! Auntie Beth! 😀
I’m sleepy now. I’ve chatted about dogs and cleaning enough. There are other things I wish I could chat about but I can’t. Nothing particularly exciting tho.
