It helped, and everyone is looking like this, this morning:
Spike in his sunbeam, half in the hallway, half in the office. He looks like the picture of contentment this morning.
Sophie, cuddled up in the dog bed, under the living room window. She can keep an eye on me from there and I suspect she is planning to drink my coffee the minute I get up to switch the laundry loads over.
Murphy and Ringo, cuddled up on my blanket, on the loveseat. They are wedged in next to me as I am studying this morning. Say goodby to Ringo though, he's heading off on an adoption trial today, PHEW! I love that dog, but I seriously need a break from fostering!!
And, this is what I am doing: frantically getting papers written that are due, and my thesis proposal tightened up and ready to go in. I am presenting/defending my thesis proposal within the next couple weeks so I am ready to get on with getting on! Between that and finishing up my final class (I hope!) for this degree, I am BUSY! Ah well, at least the dogs are content this morning!! :)
