Busy weekends

A few weekends ago, I advised Mom on her craft room. She really needed to get some new shelving for the room too, so I offered to create a design sketch. A friend helped her build and stain the shelves.

I am pleased with the physical manifestation of my design:
New shelves
I have a serious expression because I am a Serious Designer.

We have had a lot of busy weekends lately. It used to be that Mom and I had a lot of lazy weekends. She used to always take long naps - now she has to try really hard to nap. (It must be hard not to be a dog!) It turns out that she was so tired all the time because of some medication she was taking.

Her old doctor stopped her on that medicine in December and put her on a new medicine that made her way too jittery and she kept throwing up. Remember when I had to go stay with Willie Wonka and Buster because my mom was in the hospital? Well, when she got out of the hospital she got a new, better doctor who figured out all the problems with the medication and now she feels much better. She has also lost a lot of weight that one of her old medicines had made her gain.

Mom went to buy me more of my food a few days ago, and the humans at the register couldn't believe she was lugging around a 30lb bag of deliciousness so easily. What they didn't know was that until recently she weighed almost two of those bags of kibble more.

That is why she is sewing so much lately - because her old clothes don't fit! If humans just had fur they wouldn't have these problems. BOL! Thanks to ME she has a nice place to do her sewing, and I always keep her company and offer my advice.
