I miss sleeping with my dog


My sister said one of our friends was a better mother because if one of her kids is sick, the friend still gives them hugs and kisses.

I am with my sister. I want nothing to do with sick people. Don't even like talking to them via e-mail lest I get some virus from them.

Everything changes, though, when your service dog is sick.

Actually, Claren isn't really sick. She just barfed last night as we got ready for bed. I think she ate something she shouldn't have and seems fine now.

Last night, though, she was tired and looked pathetic, and I really really wanted my double bed -- I didn't want her to be alone.

We went out to the family room and sat together on the loveseat out there. She immediately zonked out, but she kept her face toward me and stuck a paw behind my back -- I assume to reassure herself I was there.

Even though it is my normal napping spot, I could not fall asleep. My legs started getting all jumpy so I had to go to bed. I am not sure if she followed.

Being a sucker for kisses does not make you a better mother. It just makes you a sucker.

I don't know. She won't let her kids get up to see the lunar eclipse tonight.

I let my kids get up for the lunar eclipse, which is to say, I heard them get up to see the eclipse. Then I had to text the boy at 3:30 a.m. to say Stop playing the piano. Am I a good mother?

You are a good mother; your boy is a good son, brainless, but a good son.
