We spent the better portion of the morning in Seattle at Lion’s doctor appointment. Ordinarily I’d be out of the office by 12:30 pm, but today I got here a little before noon. I was considering not even going to work but Lion has another appointment on Tuesday so I’ll miss some time then too. Now I’m not sure what time I’ll leave work. I don’t really feel like staying till 5 on a Friday. I guess we’ll see when I want to jump ship.
Lion was still sleepy last night. He snoozed on and off and I didn’t unlock him till quite late. I was lazily playing with him and he started to get hard, only to get soft again as he fell asleep. No harm, no foul. It was late. He was tired.
I also didn’t whomp him. I wanted to give his buns a chance to heal from the night before. So far he’s been quick to remember punishment days, but Monday and Thursday haven’t been a problem for a long time. I’m anxious to see if he remembers Saturday. If I were him, I’d have six alarms set and notes all over the house to remind me. (Don’t tell him I said that.)
Tonight we’re going out to dinner. Some years ago, one of Lion’s coworkers suggested a Chinese restaurant that serves volcano fried rice. It’s out of the way so we usually forget it’s there. Inevitably, one of us will think of it and it still takes us weeks to get there. Tonight’s the night. We might be too roly-poly and full to play tonight, but that’s the chance we’ll have to take. That rice is so good!
I’m hoping Lion isn’t as sleepy this weekend as he was last weekend. We didn’t play much. We never even made it out of the house. I don’t care so much about sticking around the house as long as we don’t have errands to run. It’s not like I don’t have tons to do at home. I do care that Lion is too sleepy to do anything. Maybe he can take a sleeping pill tonight to help.
