Thanks Saintseester for checking in. The vacation went really well, not long enough as most. I'll write up a post about it as soon as HD downloads the photos and I can put some up. Last week we were both busy getting back into work and not doing much on our time off. Hopefully by the weekend if not before he'll be able to get them downloaded.
As far as what's been going on since we got back it's been the same old stuff. Work is work and I wish I didn't have to go but I do. On the Sunday before going back I told the puppy in front of HD that I was going to go into work the next morning, collect all my personal belongings and then quit. Yeah, HD didn't like the sound of that, lucky for him I was just kidding.
HD is still going back and forth on getting a new vehicle. Although I think as of right now he's agreed to keep the truck he has. He just had a few more things fixed, didn't cost very much, so he's content again for awhile.
I thought it'd be almost like starting over with the puppy and the cats when we got back from vacation. But luckily it wasn't. Crybaby actually seems to be playing with him. It's not full on yet and Crybaby will run away quick enough but he certainly tolerates him a lot more than he used to. Pretty Boy is getting there also but he'll take off a lot more quickly. And Whiskers, well, I don't think she'll ever come around. You can tell she knows he can't/won't really do anything to her but she still doesn't want him near her.
HD has for the last two early mornings brought him into the bed with us when he's come to bed. Tuesday morning he came in at 4:30, an hour before my alarm would be going off. That's a big no no since I wouldn't be able to fall back asleep. Or even if I did it would take awhile and then the alarm would be going off right after. It wasn't until close to 5:10 that everyone was settled down finally. And sure enough as I was finally starting to doze my alarm went off. This morning at least he came in earlier than that. And all of them were pretty darn tired so everyone settled pretty quickly and I was able to actually fall asleep again.
I don't let the puppy back in the bed when I'm leaving for work, that's just too risky, so he goes back into his kennel. He seems content enough to do so so I don't feel too bad about it. Especially since on Sunday he discovered the litter boxes and while I was preparing stew he comes walking in the kitchen with a piece of poo in his mouth. He did that twice. At least he's not actually eating it; he's just holding it there. He did that with HD the other day too. We really need to break him of that habit ASAP.
And on that note I think I'll wrap this up.
