Wide Awake Puppies

Lately my dogs have not been sleeping through the nite. I'm not sure if it's the current heatwave, or if they are upset that DH has been traveling so much or what their problem is. If only they could talk (sigh). Only then I might be afraid to hear their true thoughts on the low fat, high fiber, bland o bland organic food, diet they are on. But I digress.

After a week of little to no sleep, I told DH we had to do "something". So on Sunday "operation tire the dogs out" was commenced. We loaded them up into my car and drove to the pet store. We took every side street available, what should have been a 30 min ride turned into an hour and 30 min drive. DH and I talked about nothing and everything all at once. The dogs had a blast looking out the window and watching the world as it whizzed by.

  The long drive to the pet store reminded me of back when DH and I had first starting dating, back when gas was cheap. We used to ride around in his truck all the time. We never had a destination in mind, we did it just because. And we'd talk for hours. I loved it.  It was simple and it brought us closer together.

The dogs still didn't sleep thought the nite Sunday nite, but this time, instead of being upset about it, I'm looking forward to another long drive with them and Jeff.  Who knows...maybe we'll work this into our weekly routine. I'm sure the dogs won't complain ;)

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them. Follow me on twitter . Hugs!! – Kat
