I've been running around like a maniac. (Which is why I haven't been in the blogosphere much, lately.) As a result, my Energizer batteries are wearing down. I need a recharge. So, I thought I'd try a ten minute power nap. I've heard those work pretty well.
This morning, after I took my son to school, and before I had to take my daughter to school, I lay down on the sofa and closed my eyes. I figured it would be a good time for one of those ten minute power naps.
As soon had I lay down, a rather large, furry creature walked up to me and gave my face a good sniff.
"Schultz!" I complained. "Go away!"
The giant German Shepherd lumbered off. I figured he'd leave me alone for the remaining nine minutes.
But no. He went off, got himself a big drink of water, and came back to me - his jowls dripping with water. He stood next to me, and dripped all over my arm. "Schultz! Just go away!"
He walked off. That left seven minutes and thirty seconds for my power nap.
About forty-five seconds later, the beast returned. This time he had his slimy ball on a rope in his mouth. He was ready to play. He dropped it on my shoulder.
I knocked it off.
He picked it up. And dropped it on my shoulder.
"Come on, Schultz. Give me a break!" I complained.
He nudged the ball against my shoulder. I threw it. He chased it and brought it back.
This went on for five minutes.
Finally, the game stopped.
I looked at my watch. One minute left of my power nap. I lay down and closed my eyes. Fifty-nine seconds later: "Mom, it's time to leave!"
So much for the power nap.
(I would like to wish all of you who celebrate Easter or Passover a very happy holiday! I'm not sure if I'll be around in the next couple of weeks, because I have a lot going on. I'll be back when I'm back!)
