Happy Dance Interrupted

I am absolutely thrilled when the weekend is over and the glorious little yellow school bus comes. The last couple of Mondays Ben has asked to go wait for the bus early. I guess he’s ready to get away from me too. We had a summer preview weekend weather wise. The temperature was in the mid 90’sF. He gets more agitated when the pressure and temperature rise. He was “Mr Ants In His Pants” all weekend, and it was too hot to do his normal pressure release things outside, so he paced. And paced. And paced.

This morning, after the bus pulled away with a Happy To Get Away From Grandma King Ben, I went in the house and did my Happy Dance. Zeus, aka Big Dumb Dog, doesn’t enjoy my dancing so he was barking at me. I continued dancing while telling the dog to be quiet, and kicked the corner of the table. Happy Dance interrupted… After a few choice swear words, I looked down at my foot and saw that my middle toe now leans to the left. Dang! Another broken toe… 

So, no more Happy Dancing for me today. Can I blame it all on the dog or do I just, once again, own up to the fact that I’m a complete klutz and should be wrapped in bubble wrap for my own protection?

  1. Well thatโ€™s no fun. We did the โ€œfreedom danceโ€ too when our kids were little.

    So glad you have the little yellow school bus ๐ŸšŒ to keep you sane.

    Take care

  2. Always always blame the dog. The dumber the better! I have a big dumdum named Thor and he takes the heat for a lot even though he says nothing and his worst offense is stealing granola bars from the pantry.

    1. At least he’s eating healthy๐Ÿ˜‚ Zeus goes after whatever he can get when no one is looking, including trash. He’s one of those tongue hanging out the side of the mouth dogs…perfect for our kookie family๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’Œ

  3. Oh no! When Bobby was younger and you asked him, “Where did you get hurt?” He would answer in this case, “The table did it!” ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope your toe heals soon so you can get back to dancing ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Zeus just thinks he’s the center of the universe. He barks if any of us hug each other, or talk to each other without petting or acknowledging him. He barks if we have our hoods up on our hoodies, if we pull our hands into our sleeves… When you adopt a two year old dog from the shelter, you adopt whatever issues they have too. He’s still the best dog for us, but that bark has gotta go!
      No more Happy Dance for a while, now I just Happy Hobble๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚ Usually it’s my baby toes that get broken. This time it was my middle toe. Now it leans to the left๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜„

      1. What protests? lol
        My cousin is asking me how bad is the protest? I feel like replying how bad is it that I don’t follow the news? Thankfully, I haven’t been affected much since I don’t have to commute to work.
