Simpatico: What Mom Does When She Isn't Blogging...


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

What Mom Does When She Isn't Blogging...

(Ok, I have no new cute pictures and I'm scraping the bottom of the 'topics' barrel today... so if you'd like to come back tomorrow, I completely understand...)

Mom owns a commercial cleaning company. Her company cleans for some local medical providers (how is that for being ambiguous?) She really enjoys it as she doesn't have to deal with people. Her employees are great except for the family members who work for her that she cannot seem to get rid of. And it really takes no time to do the work it would be better if she had a magic wand and could bibbidy bobidy boo it done, but meh.

When she isn't working she is in charge of belly rubbings, ear and butt scratchings and treats.  She should have business cards made up for that, not her other business. 

When she isn't taking care of us which she should be doing all the time because we are more important than anything else in the world she is homeschooling our human puppy brother, Reed. By homeschooling we mean she is slaving putting her VISA card into the appropriate spot and ordering the curriculum online then sitting back and letting them take care of Reed's education and worrying about his grades.  He is doing better homeschooling than he ever did when he was getting up and going to a real school (no lie... seriously, you'd think he was just like our mom in that he is antisocial.. oh, wait, he is...)  Last year he had 2 B's and the rest A's carrying a heavy load of school work (Geography, Algebra I, English I, Physics and Chemistry, Computer Science I, Accounting/Personal Finance and Civil War Studies).  This year isn't much more fun. He has gone heavy on the History for some reason... Mom wonders if he is really her kid and is checking the hospital records even now. Focusing on 20th Century American History, Constitutional Studies, Vietnam War Studies, and World History... Whatever happened to French I or Spanish? This kid is going to be working in a library or sumptin that doesn't allow dogs to come for fear of peeing on the books.

(Told you this was a boring post... if you've made it this far perhaps you should be looking for a hobby, too... perhaps dachshund tummy rubbing or ear scritching? we give training lessons, call today...)

When she isn't taking care of Reed's schooling hahaha she is at the gym. Six days a week she goes to that place. 3 days of light cardio and legs and 3 days of heavy cardio and arms. We think she is crazy.  We told her she could simply stay at home and start lifting newby with her feet or arms to get the same work out... she said no. She LOVES going to the gym. They won't let us come, something about our walking leads getting caught up in the free weights, but it only happened once when Dixie was chasing after that guy with the cougar tattooed on his leg.  We think we need to talk to the NAADP (National Association for the Advancement of Dachshund Puppies).  They don't even have ramps for their stairmasters... I mean, that is against the laws, isn't it??

Ok, so we've bored you enough today. We promise we will look cute and do something adorable so tomorrow you don't have to read stuff like this.

She didn't even post pictures of anything. What a B&^%h!! She is so fired!!

Lawdy mercy...we'll be back after we rest...reading about your mom's busy life nearly wore us out.
Instead of rubbing bellies she needs someone to rub her shoulders.

Maybe if you could add the follow me by email widget I can just use that. I don't understand what keeps going wrong. I read yours because I like too. Mollie and I are starting a spooky gallery for the run up to Halloween. Send me an email on mollyDOTthewallyATbtinternetDOTcom and we'd love you to join. It will be fun.
Best wishes Molly
