Worn out...

Whose idea was it to get a puppy? Whose? Oh, wait that was mine. It was a good idea, and I am so happy that we did it and that the girls are getting along, but I am unbelievably tired now. I have been training our new dog Lily to walk on a leash, not bark her head off at other dogs, not be afraid of big dogs, to sit and stay and to come when I call her name. This means that Mabel is doing all these things too, and I am trying to make sure that the affection is equal, so that no one gets jealous, that they learn to love each other, and I get to stay the boss. Thank goodness I watched all those dog whisperer episodes! It has been amazing, and each day gets better and better. But as Jeff has been filming for the entire time, I have been on duty 24/7.

Like any good couple we try and juggle and support each other and pick up the slack for the one who is working. These past few weeks, while Jeff works on a great and demanding role in an independent film I have been the hause frau, and gardener, and dog whisperer all while still auditioning and shooting and trying to write new pages each day. Some days have been better than others. And I am happy that all my efforts are paying off, I mean look at that photo! That's two dogs getting along. But today it has caught up with me and I am knackered.

Alas, I don't have anywhere to be today and I can spend the whole day in my office...which conveniently enough, also has a day bed. Wonder if the ladies will make room on the pillow for me?
