Our evenings have looked like this:
4:30-5p: Get home
5p-5:30/5:45p: Play with dog/talk about day
5:45p: Make dinner
7:30p: Time for walkies
8:30-9p: Home from walkies (yesterday we walked to Golden Spoons, but Starbucks is also a popular destination)
9:30p: I wake up and realize that Mike and I are asleep on the couch and Penny is asleep either on the tile by the door or at our feet.
10p: I wake up again, drag myself to the bathroom and get ready for bed and fall into bed. Penny drags herself into the bedroom and lies down in “her spot”
10p-10:30p: Mike rallies and takes Penny out again for a pee break, and then somehow magically finds more energy to stay up and play games/read/do music/website stuff. I pass the heck out.
And then I get up around 5:45-6a and it starts all over again.
