Election Stress Disorder?

img_5167Yes, folks this is a REAL thing – I even heard it on CNN.  Dr. Heather Silvestri was being interviewed by @alisynCamerota on @NewDay and I realized why I’ve been MIA.

She suggested we take a #socialmediabreak so that’s what I’ve been doing the last few weeks.  I’m not sure it’s helped much but at least I’m not hearing the arguing from the #PresidentalDebates.

Instead, I made my appearance last week at Mom’s Motivational Interviewing trainings and it helped her with helping the participants be at ease.  After all, it is stressful trying to learn a new language – at least for others.  I only know dog speak and that’s good enough for me. The one exception is when the Parentals make me mind – then I share my grunting which they equate to sassing.

The parentals have been busy with Thanksgiving cards for clients and I’ve been staying clear of all those envelopes so I don’t make a further mess of the living room.

Although it is SUPPOSED to be fall we’ve been having summer weather in Santa Monica with high’s in the 80’s.

Let’s all pray for cooler weather and calm for our country.

Peace!

The Tutu

IMG_1210The blind date did not go over very well…

Yep – the parental units decided it would be OK to bring in a “lady friend” for a visit.

As usual, it is like most weekends around here and with a lot of work and always doing something going on.

Mom and her RD intern Farah from Pepperdine needed to work on some social media business, blogs and recipes. And we all know, I like anything that sounds social and of course I long for the media attention. Farah has a dog and she was to hang out with me.

Don’t get too excited yet since it wasn’t…umm…all that fun and special.

Her name was Tutu and she was little, compact, a bit bossy and a princess-like, and it was it a long afternoon with my play date.

IMG_1218First she had this loud breathing noise, then she stole my bone and finally she got a little bossy with me.

I admit I was afraid of the Tutu and hung outside. When Dad got home I walked way around the girl who stole my bone. Look at my face in the photo folks. The Tutu had some power, and my ego-strength was lacking a bit.

Even with being thrown off today I still got my hang out time with Farah, who I love and would prefer that she just be my lady friend.

Farah also helped Mom out this week when she was interviewed for ABC Channel 7 news on camel milk. Glad I was not part of that since I think the camel would have frightened me more than Tutu. However, we know I am a complete foodie and I would have been game to try the milk.

At the end of the day Farah and Tutu left and as I watched her walk away perfectly mannered off leash she turned back and smiled. It was almost like she said, “see how cute I am and I have manners so there.”

IMG_1223Hmm…I sure have a lot to learn still. But I like that no leash thing so we’ll have to see how I convince the parental’s to let me try that sometime.

I almost forgot – the weather has been MUCH better and today it was a lovely 74 degrees in Santa Monica.

Peace!
