Brrrrrrrrrrrrr.....

I'm feeling like an absolute failure as a dog mom today. This time of year is very tricky with Bailey. It is cold in the morning, but in the afternoons it gets fairly nice. This is Oklahoma, so you can't really predict the weather. The past two days I have left her outside because we have had some fairly nice weather. She loves to play outside and sunbathe. It makes her feel like a super model. Today I left her outside again thinking it would warm up. I didn't watch the news this morning. Big mistake. On the way to work I heard it was "23 degrees with a chance of snow flurries". Oh no! Poor baby dog! As much as she loves to play outside, she loves to cuddle in her blankets on the couch even more. Luckily, we can leave her in the house all day unsupervised and she is perfectly fine. We were blessed with an angel! Short story made too long...Bailey girl is probably shivering outside wondering why I made her stay in the cold without her winter coat. Yes, she has one. She is a big girl now, but here are a few of my favorite puppy pictures of her

In other news, when I woke up this morning I thought I was starring in a movie. My alarm clock is set to one of my favorite radio stations. This morning was like a perfect opening scene to a super cheesy movie. Let me set the scene....

Dark room, girl cuddled warmly under her covers...clock radio begins playing...
"Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world. She took the midnight train going anywhere."
Girls eyes open. She smiles and stretches her arms to the ceiling....
"Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit. He took the midnight train going anywhere."
Girl lies in bed as she contemplates her day. Music continues to play....
"A singer in smokey room, a smell of wine and cheap perfume. For a smile they can share the night it goes on and on and on and on."
Girl jumps out of bed, throws on her favorite sweatshirt and begins singing and dancing to the music.
"Don't stop believing..."

Thank you Journey. I feel quite motivated now. And yes, it happened just like that. Perfect. That song is actually on my running CD so it really gets me going. Nothing like some good 80's music to get my blood flowing. I wish every morning started like that one...

Oh poor doggy! I am sure you will be forgiven after some snuggling tonight.

I don't really dig the 80's for music. Don't know why since I grew up then. BUT, that song rocks! And I love the puppy pics!
