Well it has begun AGAIN! MOM got her syllabus in the mail. Lord Jesus help me.
|MOM, MOM, MOM!! Look at me. MOM!|
See MOM being a pastor has to continually continue her education. I don't really get it, and truth be told MOM is not always thrilled about it. She would much rather spend her free time doing ministry, you know working with her hands, doing with her feet, building relationships with those she encounters, stuff like that and of course she would rather take me for hikes, wrestle with me, and just play with me. Not spending endless hours readings dozens of books and writing countless papers (this class requires her to write 37 papers. Some are only 3 to 5 pages long but over half are 15 to 28 pages long and she has to conduct 3 interviews of 2 to 3 hours long each). Something has to give and I guess for a little while I might not get as much wrestling and stick throwing. Woo is me. So I try enticing MOM with a few of my favorite toys to see if she will give in to the temptation.
Wanta play with my chicken? It squeaks
OK how about with my snake? It squeaks AND the tail rattles.
I'll even throw in my super squishy football. You know you love the football.
OH NO MOM look the snake has got me! Help Help!! MOM!
OK let me see what you are working on that is more fun than playing with me and my toys. hummmmm. It's all Latin and Greek to me. What does this button that says "DEL" do?
Note to self: "Do Not press the "DEL" button because when you do you get sent to your bed. At least I got to take my toys with me.
After what seemed like 87 hours MOM closed a few books, stacked up her notes, and put the cap on the highlighters and turned off the laptop. Then she walked over to my bed knelt down and said, "Come on, let's play. I can do some of this work after you go to sleep." I love that woman and I am going to try to be more understanding when she has to study.
Mom would like you to ignore her Scooby Doo pajama bottoms.
See MOM I told you this is more fun than all that stuff you were trying to do. You know I am right. Oh for the record MOM says she did not give into temptation. I'm gonna let her think that. But these eyes and my soft fur are pretty tempting.
