Bad News ~ Good News

THE BAD NEWS IS...
I didn't get to hook at the library tonight.
I had to work late.
THE GOOD NEWS IS...
I have a job!

THE BAD NEWS IS...
I'm not done taking down
the Christmas decorations.
It has never taken me this long.
THE GOOD NEWS IS...
If I don't take the big tree down,
it will be all ready for next Christmas.
Just kidding :)
It WILL be down this weekend.

THE BAD NEWS IS...
Hopscotch is on meds until January 20th
for her infected incision
and her parasites (EEEWWWWW!!!)
THE GOOD NEWS IS...
She has found her forever home.
She will have a pug brother
and a pug sister
and a fenced yard to romp in.

Hopscotch loves to flop around the couch
like a fish out of water.

Here she is giving me the ole "stink eye".




THE GOOD NEWS IS...
I have so many wonderful blog readers and followers.
Thank you!
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Lauren,
Those pics of hopscotch are great. Love her "stink eyes" - lol
We are lucky to have jobs, even though sometimes teeny complaints sneak out.
And if it helps, I did find a stray Christmas ornament on a window sill the other day.

Lauren, wouldn't hopscotch make a great dog movie star? I can just picture her talking with a New York accent playing the tuff street smart dog part. Don't mind me. It's been snowing and windy all day and I needed some diversion from filing papers for our year end.

I'm glad that she's found a forever home where she can a big safe place to play with other pugs.

I confess that I still have my Christmas village up and that I just put my nativity away this morning. I made myself do it. So you are not alone. JB

So glad hopscotch has a forever home. I feel the same way about my job sometimes (more than I like to admit) My job gets in the way so much. but I am thankful I have a job. My christmas is down but it is all in the upstairs hall waiting for the attic.
