You would think that after me living here for almost 4 years, Mama would know not to mess with my routine. She proved today that she doesn't. She fed us on time, but didn't take us for our morning walk. She said "it looks like it's going to storm, so we should stay in." Yes, it was as dark as night outside. Scout and I decided she was correct and we tuned into the Today Show. However during People's Court at 9:30, we decided we wanted to go for our walk. We ambushed Mama who was working and she told us we had to wait. "WHAT! WAIT?" How could she say that. We kept pestering her until she got upset with us. We knew even though she was aggravated with us that she couldn't resist us. We kept nudging her and dancing around. She finally got to a stopping point on her work and took us outside. We stayed outside for about 3 minutes and decided it was too hot and there were too many bugs flying around. We came back in and went to bed.
If Mama would have just followed our normal routine, we would have been all snug in bed by 8 a.m. instead of 10 a.m. Hopefully she remembers this tomorrow.
