Dog tired

Too much food, too much alcohol, and too many long hours at work combined with weird disruptions in my normal schedule have worn me out. I have a Christmas hangover!

Today I had to go to work at 5am, and got off at 1:30pm. Despite the ridiculously early hour, I'm glad I was scheduled that way. We didn't open until 9:00, so I spent the first half of the day alone in my department, quietly resetting displays and pulling the clearance merchandise aside. Even after the store opened I continued working like that until it was time to leave. Now I'm off early in the day, and I'm off tomorrow too.

The animals seem tired and subdued. I think they also have holiday hangovers! They all got lots of treats, toys, and attention on Christmas Eve and day. Especially the dogs.



They've both been sleeping all day today.

Marco is sitting on my knee right now. Even he's getting droopy-eyed.


Now seems like a good time to join all the animals in an afternoon nap.
It's going to feel great!

  1. Enjoy your nap, Jennifer, it sounds like you really need it!
    I was out walking in the sun every day, and didn't eat much more than usual, but I am tired as well. I guess it's a full year of work catching up with me! Now I'm off until the 10th of January - doesn't that sound like paradise?!

    3. Yes, there's a double g but I doubt he cares that much!

      Gregg's sister is still in the hospital, and is beginning to do some physical therapy. She's got a long, long road to recovery ahead.

  3. Ginger is like our Bok, with those few flecks of grey around his neck. You're right about Christmas, it's tiring above all else. Only 363 days to go before we do it all again.

  5. You mentioned three of your pets but what about the other one - the humanoid terrier - Gregg? Was he in the doghouse?

    1. He was back at work! And had been home for 3 hours before I woke up from my nap, I was really exhausted.

  6. My critters have helped me take napping to a higher level of art. They also let me know when I'm doing it wrong.

    1. Mine adore naps, and are very, very good at taking them any old time of the day. They live a life of utter leisure (it must be nice!).
