Mum surprised us by coming home early from work today. Real early, like while the sun was still bright.
At first I thought the day was going to be like an extended weekend with long hours of pug snuggles on the couch, but mum had different ideas. She set up her computer at the dining room table. The table! There’s no room for pugs on laps at the table! And then, and then she sat there. All. Day!
No matter how many rejected looks I gave her or how many times Timmy begged to get in her lap she continued to sit at the table.
“I am working from home today. You know I love hanging out with you guys, but I really have work to do. You’ll just have to entertain yourselves for a while.”
I was pretty sure Shinobi was giving us the dirty looks because he was feeling left out. I never want anyone to feel excluded so Timmy and I decided to go play with him.
For some reason, Shinobi was even less happy when we went to play with him. In fact, he got down right grouchy.
I guess work-at-home days aren’t so bad after all.
