Gonna Be Really Busy

Well, Thanksgiving is but a weight-gaining memory, and I'm suffering the usual post-holiday depression. I had so much fun with my family here; I was sad to see them go.

So was Cosette. My goodness but this is a needy puppy! She misses all the love and adoration she got from three extra people in the house, and now she's stuck with me. She pushes the laptop off my lap so that she can crawl into it. Of course, I love this and acquiesce to her request. She likes to crawl up on her target, put a front paw on each shoulder, then just lick the person into submission. The harder you laugh, the more it eggs her on.

But she has settled in very well and we are really enjoying her. So much so that she is already spoiled rotten. The breeder emailed to ask how everything was going and say that she had a friend in Omaha who was coming down to Arkansas and could bring her if it wasn't working out. I told her that she couldn't have my dog! She really is a good match for us.

So, I haven't been posting because I've been so busy with cooking, shopping, eating, playing, and all that good stuff over the last week or so.

And I probably won't be posting the rest of this week because my fingers are flying towards the 50,000 word count for the the NaNoWriMo project. I'm pretty close, sort of. Close enough that I owe it to myself to give it my best.

Words for NaNoWriMo so far: 30,006

Anyway, I'm off to get a little further along on that. I've been so focused on it that my friend R emailed Al and asked her if I was OK because she had emailed me a couple of times and not heard from me. Oops. Guess I better take a break and email her something.

Have a great week. Next week I'll return to WWC, I swear!

Until then, here are a few more pictures of Cosette:

She loves to look outside


Al is already trying to indoctrinate her into the scotch thing.


She really wanted to play Yahtzee. Or at least try to eat the dice.


How does she sleep like that?


She loved playing with her Uncle Jay


She was ready for Thanksgiving dinner.


Tired puppy.

Cosette is sooo adorable!

I am so jealous of your success with the NaNoWriMo. I am just under halfway to the goal. I knew I would never finish, but I am still disappointed with myself. You go for it and make us proud! LOL

I'm so glad you've posted those photos because today had been a bit dull!

November is almost over. Good luck with the writing. My mother has already thrown in the towel.

She's such an adorable girl. I can just see you fighting off the breeder's friend to keep you pup safe!

Love that picture where Cosette pops his head over the Yahtzee table. :)

Keep working on your NaNoWriMo thing there. Writing is good for the soul!

She is SOOOO cute. I laughed out loud when you said they called to check to make sure you still wanted her. Oh my goodness, I think before you even had her you knew she was YOUR dog.
