It is awful outside today; it’s 34 degrees, the wind is blowing so it feels like 24, and it’s raining. Can you imagine a worse day? Mom says she can but doesn’t explain. I feel like playing, but can’t go outside!!!
I went outside early this morning, but I instantly regretted it. I didn’t stay very long and neither did the others. Mom wouldn’t go out at all; she just stood at the door and watched the rest of us shiver as we did what we had to do. I hate it when humans watch.
I have tried to nap most of the day, but a girl can sleep only so much. Trust me, I have slept more than usual. Besides, sleeping is boring. And boring is something I am NOT.
I tried playing ball with mom in the hall. The hall is long enough, but when I tried chasing the ball down, I kept running into the walls or the door at the other end of the hall. Running into a wall or door is not exactly my forte. Besides, when you run as hard and fast as I do, it doesn’t feel good when you hit a non-moving hard object, especially if it’s made of oak. You should try it sometime if you think I’m kidding.
Wooly is in the computer room with dad, which is where he stays all the time as long as dad is down there. Hilde is asleep on mom’s bed–she doesn’t mind being boring. Kasha is lying on Paul’s bed and looking out the window to see if she can spot that goat that just wanders around out here. If she sees it, she will start barking, Hilde will join in; they will want to go outside and bark at it face-to-face, and I do not want to go outside. Well, I guess it would be better than sleeping or annoying mom. I keep wanting her to pet me, but she’s too busy on the computer. I just don’t understand the fascination humans have with computers.
