settling in

i refuse to be one of those new (adopted a dog) mommies, who only talks about, and shows pictures of, her new baby.

first of all, i have many other things to talk about. which has been busy. chocolate, which i've been eating a lot of. dance class, which i don't have video for. and this funny thing Bruno did last night.

every time i turned off my light to go to sleep, my previously snoring dog:

we're looking at the doggie here.
don't you be minding those shoes under the bed.

suddenly started to wander around in the dark. i'd turn my light back on. he'd lie back down and go back to sleep. the third time this happened, he walked through the apartment - barking (it was the first time i've heard him bark -- growl no, bark yes.). when he got to the front door, he continued to bark like there was a lurking intruder on the other side. um, creepy. and did i mention it was 2 a.m.?

shushing him by throwing biscuits on the floor, i turned on the light above the kitchen sink and we went back to bed. instead of curling up in his bed as usual, he planted himself right in my bedroom doorway as if saying: hey you, spooky-nothing-that-corrie-can-hear noise out there, you're gonna have to get through me if you want to get to my girl.

oh, and i bite.

aggression issues, who me?

maybe it was my insomnia he scared away. knock on wood, since i've had Bruno, i haven't once woken up at 3 or 4 in the morning. granted, i suddenly do wake up at 8:30 or 9 a.m. for a walk, but it feels like a fair trade off.

anyway, my point was, i'm still the same interesting and productive person as ever. i absolutely don't run home from work every night to be with my boy. nor tell lots of dog stories or flash my cell phone around and make people look at every picture i've taken. nope. same corrie. only, my apartment comes with a better view now.

    ha, it's always creepy when the cats growl at random invisible things/stalk the doorways like there is a demon/burglar outside...
