I cannot believe how my life has changed in just over 2 weeks of having little Coco at home with us. I love her dearly, and I think my husband loves her more than me right now (endless cuddles on the sofa with the dog and not a look to the wife, nice) but I must admit, I did not think it was going to be such hard work to raise and educate a puppy.
I am not a morning person at all, and lack of sleep on the first week hit me badly, and still 2 weeks on to me get up around 7/7.20 in the morning feels like wake up in the middle of the night, I never thought life could start so early in the morning!!
I am not a fashionista but I like every day to get dressed nicely, even if it’s just jeans and cashmere sweater…I can’t do this anymore with a vicious puppy that is trying to bite everything she sees (including my nose and my husband’s) so at the moment is just old jeans and old baggy sweater…anyway who does see you? No one when you spend all day at home!
I enjoy stay at home and just have lazy days sometimes…but now I start to feel a bit trapped in. I am not one of those people who just stay all day sat on the sofa watching E! and Bravo (to be a good real housewife) but my escapes at the moment are just, lock Coco in the kitchen and run to the supermarket … not actually very amusing!
I am even missing all the sales in town…I would just like to go out me and Coco for a walk in town instead than in the fields, but I can’t yet until she has the second vaccination…one more week to go.
I have work to do anyway which is good to be in sometimes….but now I am getting stressed, irritated and grumpy…I even called the gym to start my membership again…just to escape a bit!
Coco…I love you, I love the fact that you are making our days brighten with your presence…but I need to control my life again!!!
