Travel has been having a hard time lately. He's tired.
It all started on April 4th. I went missing for three days and then came home with two screaming little wigglers. Then I decided to stay HOME for eight weeks with said wigglers for three weeks completely disrupting his sleep patterns. Sleep patterns which consisted of sleeping 9 hours during the day on the couch followed by 9 hours later on the bed. So okay, he hears that I going back to work - finally some relief. I mean it's hard work looking out after me, Stephen, Jack and now the two new additions plus his yard, and all the neighbors' yards! He needed his rest for goodness sake. So then I go back to work, but much to Traveler's surprise - Mamaw moves into the day shift. Now he has ANOTHER person to look after and Jack and the twins are there too. There is no end in sight.
So now Traveler is spending his days "protecting" the homestead from the front porch, which basically means he's sleeping all day on the cool concrete rather than the couch. It's still not the same and with the new additions, it won't ever be. But he's dealing and as always, he's still Mommy's best baby puppy, all 85 pounds of him.
