IT'S THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT ON FRIDAY: HELP ME, PENELOPE

As  my title says, it's the middle of the night. Son of Junebug left a little after midnight. We watched some stuff on Amazon Prime together. I've discovered that the combination of Amazon Prime and Netflix is not as good as a Valium, but it's almost as good as two Xanax.

Xanax is what I spilled a few minutes after Son of Junebug left. Little pink pills were under the dressing table, the wardrobe, the bed, and in the folds of my robe and comforter. I got the flashlight and got down on my knees on the floor, which nearly killed me, and hunted for pink pills. I think I found most of them. They have a lot of dog hair mixed in with them now, but what does it matter? I eat dog hair in my meals everyday.

Considering that Xanax is prescribed to lessen my anxiety, you might be able to imagine that I felt a bit of . . . anxiety (remember our lesson on ellipsis?). I intended to take my pills, sit down at the laptop in my office, and answer a follower's grammatical concern, which I haven't done lately. Thanks to my anxiety, I am over my desire to write that post. I can't think clearly.

Penelope, will you please help me?

    1. If Penelope sees a pill, she'll ignore it. If Franklin sees a pill, he'll stare at it until I notice he's staring at something. Nothing can be in the wrong place in this house between my OCD and Franklin's stare.

    1. I don't ever want to be without my pups. Willy Dunne Wooters and Franklin are such good buddies.

  3. Hopefully you got some good sleep out of this and that your anxiety abated. "I eat dog hair in my meals everyday?" You bragger.

    1. Yes, I am insane. That's why I need Xanax.

  5. II agree about the Netflix/Amazon combo.
    I also love seeing the progress Penelope has made and how she has become a full member of the pack. I think dogs are wonderful creatures.

    1. Penelope and Franklin are good friends. She sits on my son's lap, and this week, he brought over his dog, Stella, to meet Penelope. They gave each other the most thorough sniffing I've ever seen and then became friends.

  6. Nothing like getting stressed out by having to crawl all over the floor trying to recapture those little pills that are supposed to be making your stress disappear. (At least, I hope they aren't in a bottle with a darned child-proof cap!)

    Have a super weekend!

    1. That's why I spilled them! It was a battle to the death with a child-proof cap. I had to change pharmacies recently. I must ask for old people caps from now on.

  7. Oh My Goodness, Penelope is just beautiful.

    I love Netflix and Amazon I have Acorn too but haven't used it yet.

    1. I don't know about Acorn. Is it free? I can't afford any more services. Besides, Amazon and Netflix seem to have everything in the world between the two of them.

  8. So glad you have canine companions to keep you out of trouble.

  9. Every day I am more and more convinced that xanax is the writer's best friend. :/

    Yes, I think 'twas me who sent you the books. Read them at your leisure. Give them away to children aged 9-14 when you're done. I have no clue how to market that age group, as they're not really internet-active yet. Free books is my best and only idea.

    1. Many children are internet active at that age. I thought I received the books from you, and then everything went crazy in my microcosm. I won't give them away--they're signed! I collect autographed books. Besides, they are very good.

  10. Kennels should make that service part of their advertising :)

  11. I worried about the dogs eating any of the pills. Penelope wouldn't be running around the yard even with an audience--LOL! ;)

    1. My dogs have never eaten a pill. Faulkner used to be a food thief. With these two, I can set down my food, and they don't touch it.

  12. How nice of you Penelope to help mum out with the post, I had a little dog called Dot Dot who loved to race around the backyard as fast as her little legs would carry her.

    Split tablets yeah I get pretty annoyed when one of my wonderful grandchildren spill my tablets and I have to get on the floor and crawl around looking for them.

    1. I think I found them all. No more child-proof caps for me.

  13. I hope you feel better, Janie!

    Hi, Penelope! You're so adorable and you put a big smile on my face. :)

    Love,

  14. Hey Penelope and yes, even your human, Janie,

    Penelope, you keep looking after your mum. Actually, you might do what Penny does. Penny tells me a barktime, sorry, bedtime story and sometimes, she even sings me a lullabark, um, lullaby.

    Penny's alleged human,

    Gary :)

    1. I can't give up any. I spilled them again last night, but this time, they landed in the drawer. Much easier to find, and no added dog hair.

  16. Aw, I am sure glad you found your pills! I am glad I'm not too overly anxious (except when it's been a rough, long day at work and I want an adult beverage, so I get comfy when I get home and go to look for my adult beverage and there isn't one - meaning I have to then decide whether I want to wait, or put my bra and pants back on.)

    Penelope is so adorable!

    1. Penelope slowly decides we belong to her. Recently, for the first time, she approached Willy Dunne Wooters to kiss his fingers.

  18. I still love you and I'm having a plate-clearing March!! Forgive any absence as I fine tune this crazy schedule of Cherdo-Land.

    I'm glad you like the 'toon of our doggies.
