Busy Summer

Yes, to many people the title of this post is an oxymoron. Summer is typically the time of year when things slow down, people go on vacations and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Well, in theory this all sounds mighty nice, work has been more than a bit nuts this past month. On several occasions, I come home and plop on the couch to answer all of the new emails I've received between me leaving work and biking home (usually 35 minutes).

For a pup that stays home now during the day (daycare, I miss you!), G just wants attention when I come home - something that can be somewhat difficult to give with a smartphone glued to your nose. Sometimes, G sets up camp in front of and me and stares (probably wondering about all the funny faces I'm making as I still cannot type on an iPhone).

Like my smiles (see below post) let her know that I'm with her, she likes to get up close (and blink dramatically) to let me know that she's right there, too.


  1. This is awesome. Zoe does that too, and we call it her "German smile" because many Germans smile by blinking cutely. I know that sounds crazy, but I swear it's true!
