As the rest of the country is experiencing crazy weather of the likes of snow, rain and ice, we seem to be having summer time. I do wonder what this thing is that I have been hearing about called snow. I have seen some pictures and it looks fun. Maybe one day the parentals will take me to play in it, if I’m good which was not the case this weekend.
Mom had a Motivational Interviewing training for the dietetic interns from Pepperdine University. I did get to go to the office and help set up. It was fun because as Dad would set out the pens of course I had to steal them.
I have been a little thief as of late and have had more than a few time outs. Mom went on an appointment and of course I needed to keep Dad on his toes so I thought I would get his attention by stealing my treats off the desk. Dad had a little bit of a melt down but I could tell he was not too upset as he was laughing at me. I am just so darn cute and irresistible it is hard for them to stay mad at me.
Then as usual I got into much more trouble. I thought I could push my luck a little further and well…it backfired. Dad was making meatballs and I was minding my p’s and q’s in the kitchen perfectly.
Then he received a phone call and got side tracked, and my golden opportunity came. I just could not resist the big bowl of warm, delicious smelling meatballs. The next thing I know is the voice of thunder and it was not a cheerful one.
However, I did not give myself a timeout quite yet-I ran outside. I knew I was going to be having a long timeout and wanted to make sure I was not scared of the dark so I brought in a yard light. This only made Dad turn into Daddy Dearest. I do love to get his goat.
So this week’s Italian dinner got cut short a night due to my love of meatballs, which might be my last ever so I had to enjoy them while I could!
