Change Is Hard

Mama is so confused

7 Comments

Katie here. Geeze. I let mama blog for one day without me dogervising her and she fails! Did you see what she did? She posted a “Wordless Wednesday” while I was napping and it was Tuesday! She doesn’t even know what day it is anymore. Obviously she can not be left alone. Good thing I’m around to straighten everything up.

So here it is Wednesday. No sense doing a wordless post, I mean seriously have you ever heard of a quiet sheltie? I thought not. So I’ll give you a brief update.

We are still stuck in this stupid hotel. I know, I know. I am supposed to be grateful that we are somewhere warm and safe and stuff. But I am bored! I’m tired of hogging all the pillows. I’m tired of hearing weird sounds outside my door and having my mama tell me not to bark. Of course I have to bark! It’s a weird sound mama!

The car fixer place was supposed to have my car all fixed by this morning, but yesterday afternoon mama found out that it won’t be done today either. I don’t know if we’ll ever see my car again. I’m an adventurous kind of girl, but this is getting ridiculous.

Big sign for this park!

Yesterday mama took me to a city park so that I could have some time outside that is away from the hotel. It was an OK park. It was pretty big with tennis courts and softball fields. Lots of jungle gym type stuff for kids to play on too. I wasn’t interested in playing. I was having a pretty good time just sniffing all those smells.

What are those kids doing over there mama?

There was a bright red train car in the park; I have no idea why, there weren’t any signs explaining it. Mama thought it was interesting and of course I had to sit in front of it. Boring mama!

No one cares mama!

We stopped by a river walk on the Pigeon River downtown too. The river was pretty, but a storm was coming in so we didn’t stay long. Not that exciting either.

Stop with the pictures mama!

Once we got back to the hotel and mama found out that we won’t get the car today she got all bummed out. I decided to be a very good girl and not bark so much at the rain. It was hard. But I can be good if I try.

Storm blowing in.

I understand that sometimes mama just needs a break.

Winds fluff me up.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Oh, Katie–I saw the photo for Wordless Wednesday yesterday and it never crossed my mind it was not the correct day. That makes two of us confused. Sad, isn’t it? What is with the car?? I think you need to start barking orders to those mechanics!

  2. Poor Katie. Your big adventure isn’t going so well, is it? I’m sorry you and your mama are stuck in a strange place (at least it’s rather pretty, right?), without your car (but it’s getting fixed, right?). Here’s hoping tomorrow will be brighter!

  4. I saw Wordless Wednesday and paid no attention to what day it was, so your mama is not alone. I get it, staying someplace you didn’t choose to be with nothing to do can throw anybody off track. Hopefully tomorrow your car will be fixed.

  6. Katie, I agree, when you hear a weird sound you MUST bark! You must also bark at rain! That’s our Sheltie right and lineage! You do us proud sweet girl! Love the photo of you by the train. I think the car taking longer is God’s way of saying “slow down!!” Barks and licks and love, Dakota
