Wow – that last post was such a downer that I decided to write a little follow-up – I’m feeling better! I took forever in the shower, and my son is still napping! And the two girls have been playing together… funny how the house calms down when a certain little Kindergartner is at school. Coincidence or instigator? You tell me 🙂
My little parakeet JJ likes the sound of running water, so my shower music today was supplied by a happy little bird – that was a mood lifter! I’ve been reaching into his cage as part of training to get him used to me, and he’s been letting me touch him! So today I was touching his belly, and he started to close his eyes, and it occurred to me that we didn’t have to just do training – I could pet him! So today, I would say that JJ became a REAL pet – he enjoyed my company, let me pet him, and he cheered me up!
And now I get to sit here at the computer for a few minutes, and I actually get to have my glass of water next to me since there is no one to come drop things into it (one of my son’s favorite activities is the put things in water, you’d think he’d appreciate his baths more than he does). And I treated myself to a piece of chocolate. Ah, a long hot shower, chocolate, and peace and quiet… what more could I want? Sorry about the grumpy post I made before 🙂
