The Dog Ate My Homework


Soooooo. I planned to take tomorrow to catch up on Writing 101 assignments.

For the last few days I’ve been working on all the projects I needed to finish (refinishing a coffee table, cooking ahead for a crazy week, cleaning up the disaster zone we call the master bedroom…).

I was REALLY excited about tomorrow.

In other news, we have a German Shepherd puppy.

He’s 4 months old and has been an absolute joy. He is easy to train and doesn’t chew things up.

Until today.

My laptop was on the floor, so I put it on Β the bed. He doesn’t climb up there.

Until today.

You know that feeling you get when the kids are playing in complete silence and you know you should check to be sure they’re not lighting matches? I had it, but ignored.

Too late, I found the pup with my computer cord. Fortunate animal that he is, it wasn’t plugged in.

Unfortunate girl that I am, I did not charge my computer today, so tomorrow I will have to write really, really fast.

Should be fun.

  1. Well, at least you kept your sense of humor and as a bonus got a blog post out of it.

  3. I typed a comment in here earlier today — and then my browser crashed. (This after a software update.) πŸ™‚ You have a gift for taking a tragic situation and turning it into a chuckle! Hope you can replace your cord soon. (What is your puppy’s name?)


  4. Oh my ! Reminded me of Isaac Newton and his dog, Diamond. Something similar happened to him. I guess you will have to rewrite from memory.
