The Olympics

Mom and I love to watch the Olympics. All that action is great fun to watch. Last night Mom decided to watch while sitting in bed. Usually when she is in bed that nasty beast climbs in too and won't let me up there. But last night he wandered off somewhere and she was all alone. It was great, I jumped up and found a nice, comfy spot right beside her and snuggled right in. We watched for hours. She rubbed my back for most of the time. I think I actually fell asleep a few times. It was one of the nicest evenings we have had in a long time. Just me and my Mom.

Mom has been really busy this week. She had to go to 3 anniversary parties and then we had company over for dinner one night, so this is the first time she has let me online.

Dad's sister and her husband came over for dinner. The sister's name is Cheryl (just like my mom) and her husband's name is Tucker (just like me) so we had two sets of Cheryl and Tucker! I liked Cheryl but I really liked Tucker. I mean, who wouldn't? He has such a cool name. He called me his little cuz! HeeHee

I usually don't come out and socialize much but since they kept calling my name (how was I supposed to know there were talking to the man and not me?) I finally came out and had a nibble of dinner. It was a chicken casserole and very yummy. I especially loved dessert. It was loaded with cream cheese and cool whip, two of my favorite things.

That was about all that happened this week. Mom is home for 3 days and busy at her desk so maybe we will have some fun this weekend.

It is a beautiful day today. Mom got up early and we played catch. She throws my toys to me and I catch them and throw them back. She runs all over the room to get them. She plays fetch very well.

Here I am playing with the sock Santa brought me.

Nothing much has been happening lately. Mom is trying to get some projects done and grumbling about not having any good ideas. Dad has been trying out his new camera.

I have been trying to stay out of the way.

This morning Dad wanted to take pictures of stuff and decided to take pictures of me (I am very photogenic you know). But his camera is freaky! It makes weird sounds and flashes these little green and red lights. Very scary! I kept trying to get away from him and he just kept coming after me. I finally went and told Mom and she made him leave me alone. I don't know why he doesn't just go take pictures of the beast. Then again he probably doesn't want to break the lens. heehee

Poor Mom

Mom came home from work early today. She said her back hurt really bad and she felt dizzy. I felt so bad for her. I climbed into her lap and she just cried and cried. I snuggled up real close and she hugged me and buried her face in my fur. I hate to get wet but I let her drip tears all over me because I love her so much. I did have to get up a couple times (potty and food breaks you know) and when I did I gave her my puppy to keep her company. She didn't seem too impressed and couldn't wait until I came back.

Me playing with puzzles

Mom and I are having a nice, quiet night at home. It is chilly out so we are cuddled under a blanket and watching old movies. Right now we are watching "It Happened One Night". Mom loves old movies and I love Mom so it works out just fine.

It finally stopped raining! You have no idea how quiet it sounds when the rain finally stops. Last night it was very chilly. I had to climb in bed with mom to warm up my piggies.

Yesterday was a horrible day. Mom and Dad were cleaning all day. That vacuum cleaner ran all day! I couldn't get a wink of sleep. And once Mom was done she came into the art room, turned on the bright lights and worked on some projects. I didn't get any sleep until they went to bed...and of course they stayed up late watching a movie. Sheesh!

Today I thought I would see just how closely Mom watches over me. She and Dad were putting away the groceries and Dad left the pantry cupboard open. I figured I would climb inside and see how long it took for Mom miss me. I only got one foot through the door and she softly said, "Now Tucker, you know you aren't allowed in there". I ran over, gave her a kiss and headed off to bed.

Below is a picture of the project she was working on yesterday. She is participating in a monthly Rolodex swap. Each member has to create Rolodex cards to match the monthly theme. February is "Greensleeves".

Something very scary happened today. I wish my Mom would have been here, then it probably would not have happened. She watches over me very carefully.

This morning Dad left the door under the sink open and no one was around so I decided to check it out. There was a bag of trash in there but I couldn't see what was behind it so I climbed in. I was looking around and suddenly the door closed and it became pitch black. I was so scared, I just sat there for a few minutes trying to see but I couldn't. I got really scared and started pushing against the door and crying for help. I must have been banging on that door for several minutes when suddenly it fell open and there was the "kid". He stood there looking at me with a surprised look on his face. I shot past him with a snarl and hid under Mom's desk.

I guess I should go thank him. If he hadn't heard me as he was leaving for school I would have been trapped there all day.

I told Mom all about it when she got home. She was horrified! She called Dad on the phone and asked what he meant by trying to throw me away with the trash! HeeHee even when I am ornery someone else gets in trouble instead of me.

I wasn't going to write anything today but Dad demanded that I apologize to Kitty. But I can't! Kitty is dumb!

Mom was making sandwiches for tomorrow's lunches and Dad was tossing nibbles of ham to us on the floor. Dad had to get down on the floor and stick Kitty's nose right on the ham before he could find it.

Either Kitty is really dumb or his eyes and nose are broken! He usually gives up looking and I get extra nibbles. I can see where the ham hit the floor from 20 feet away! haha
