We're on the run over here at Pugs and Pics trying to meet deadlines, write Christmas cards and letters, make gifts, etc. etc. etc. Tonight I wrote web site copy for some relatives, helped type my brother's homework and tried to complete some online Christmas orders. I need to be up in the morning to sit by the phone in hopes that an interviewee gets enough cell signal to call me so I can talk to her for an article. I'm supposed to meet a friend tomorrow evening and I can't quite figure out where to find the extra time I need in my day. And, while my back is turned and I am focusing on all that needs to be done, my pugs are creating their own fun. Tonight, for example, Waffles bit a hole right through the middle of my brand new shoe. No moral, no point here, just a glimpse into a very busy life. It's that time of year and I'm pretty certain I'm not the only one experiencing the hustle and bustle of the holidays. My best piece of advice, breathe, time passes quickly, and, if you have dogs like mine, hide your shoes.
