Foggy Morning at My House

Most of the world is still sleeping.  While I know better, the dog insists he hasn’t been let out for days and if he doesn’t get out this moment, he will wake the whole house.

There is only drip, drip, drip of fog condensing on tree branches, muffled stillness, quiet rumble of a train rolling by.

I stand in the darkened driveway waiting, it is peaceful here.  Until it is shattered by the piercing whine of a two year old emanating from the house.

“Mo-om what are you dooooing?”

“Why are you taking so long?”

“I neeeeeed you.”

I sometimes wish the dog would take longer.

It ALWAYS happens to me when I wake up early and think “I’ll get up and have a cup of coffee and read the paper.” Within minutes of getting settled in with my coffee and paper, here comes the trip trap of little feet and “MOOMEEEEEE!” *sigh*

Maybe I should get a dog.
