The best laid plans...

Y'all may or may not know just how much of a planner I am.

Various and extensive pro/con lists are made before I purchase a pair of shoes, days off from work come with plans of attack that could be confused with the invasion of a minor country, to-do lists for parties are in the form of spreadsheets that begin weeks before invitations are even extended...

What I'm saying is I am a Planner, with a capital P. It's both a pro and con when it comes to life with me.

When a few unexpected paid-days-off fell into my lap prior to our Christmas vacation, you know that I had Plans for those days. Tightly-scheduled, starting-at-7am (to allow for "sleeping in"), allowing-an-hour-for-lunch Plans.

Then, The Husband, who has kindly but consistently rebuffed my requests for a puppy, said "What do you think about getting a puppy?"

...
...
...

Um, yes, yes, please!

Plans or not, apparently I am less a Planner and more Weak in the face of a snuggly, wiggly, busy wee puppy.

Those unexpected, but carefully scheduled days off turned into even-busier-than-previously-planned days off, and earlier this month, we welcomed into our little family Miss Perla.


I think we'll keep her.
