"She may take my life, but she'll never take my FREEDOM!"

A little too dramatic?

So what if my "freedom" yesterday was grocery shopping. I couldn't wait to go!!
(Man, I never thought in my wildest dreams I would ever type those words.)

I do absolutely adore my Stella, but I haven't left the house in 6 days. I've been cooped up in one room, my brain is fried from lack of sleep and my attack puppy battle wounds are severe. She has chomped, chewed, scratched and gnawed me from head to toe. I needed to get away.

So I was able to finally brush my pillow head hair and throw on a little makeup.
I thought about painting blue stripes down my face, but I figured I'd get funny looks as I strolled down the aisles.

I did have quite the spring in my step as I shopped. Muzak was playing all 80's songs. I couldn't be happier! I sang along to Foreigner's "Urgent" as I reached for that 1/2 gallon of ice cream.
Hey after the week I've had, it was a necessity. Right up there with butt wipe.
If they had played "Billie Jean" I would have moon walked.
Yes, I do know how and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

But as I went through the checkout I couldn't help but think about my little alien head and smile. I was gone for only an hour and I missed her terribly.


I couldn't wait to get home and give her puppy kisses.

Happy Friday, everyone!!!

Karin, I can SO empathize with how you're feeling! We brought our standard schnauzer puppy home right before we started a three month renovation of our upstairs. THAT was the most tiring summer I've ever lived through.
You'll make it through this! I hope Gracie will too! I don't have any advice for you, but just wanted you to know I felt the same way with our Riley. Just hold on for a couple of months!

Glad you got a break. Since you know what you signed on for, you know that Karen is right. Time is your friend. Hugs.

Now I know why all those folks are singing along to the Muzak in the stores and dancing as they shop!
Glad you have survived Week One.

((giggle)) Thanks, gals. I know in time things will be just fine. By that time too all the hair I pulled out of my head will start to grow in. ;> )

Loving the Stella updates! Dan loves the pics and cant wait to show him what she's been up to.
We love to compare her and Archie, the bain of Henry's existence.
