Meowllo everypawdy!!! Did yous all make it fwu da festivities and pawties and hoopla of da new year? We had a nice quiet evenin’ at home cuddlin’ in da new year wiff mommy. We turned off da puter and just spent sum quality time bein’ togedder. You know it’s gotten weally cold here lately, so snugglin’ is weally high on ow list. After all isn’t dat what mommy’s awe fur? Yesfurday wuz 21 degwees wiff a chill factor of 17. Dat’s cold fur us. Weez know sum of yous in da single digits and below, but weez hope we don’t get dat this year. Weez can hope. MOL So anyways, today mommy had to get out and go up town fur a bit. We had da door closed so we didn’t weally know how cold it wuz outside. Da neighbor and Buddy’s daddy wuz wheelin’ wound outside in hims short sleeve t-shirt and no shoes. Course hims duz dat all year wound, so we shuldn’t hav paid any tention to hims, but we fawt it must mean it wuz a little warmer today.
So mommy called da fawmacy to make sure she wusn’t gettin’ out fur nuffin’, and all wuz a go. She gwabbed hers coat and put on hers shoes and then looked at me and sed, “Okay Dezi, let’s get goin’.” Me stwetched a bit and she opened da fwunt door and…OMC me kuld feel da cold to meez bones. Fur coat or not dat wuz just ungodly cold. Me turned wight wound and went back in fwunt of da lectric fireplace. Mommy giggled and then sed in da sweet mommy voice, you know da one, hers sed, Dezi, oh sweet Dezi. Like me didn’t know what wuz goin’ on. Me knows she wants sumfin’ when she uses dat voice. She kep it up, Dezi she sed, sweetheart, honey, awe you gunna go to town wiff mommy, she sed. Hmmpht Yous finks me wants to go out in dat cold? Awe yous cwazy? Dat’s zactly what me wuz finkin’. Mommy musta went nuts over night ifin she fawt me wanted to leave da warmff of da house to go up town. Purrlease, what’s to see? And then she laid it on weally fick. She put on da pouty face and looked over at me and sed Dezi dawlin’, me knew what wuz comin’ nex, she wanted me to hop up in da stwoller. Me looked at hers and squeeked. And then me put on da pouty face. MOL You know, 2 can play dat game. Me fawt surely she wuz kiddin’, she didn’t weally wanna get out in at cold, did she? It wus so cold dat all da humidity and condensation had turned to ice. Mommy looked at me and laffed. She sed, “Oh sweet Dezi, I was just kidding, I’m fine and not going to be gone that long. I wasn’t goin’ to ask you to get out in this anyways. Whew Me wuz sure glad she didn’t want me to go.
She went to get hers purse, and me fawt ’bout it and went and hopped in da stwoller. When mommy got back up fwunt she saw me in da stwoller and sed, “Aaaw Sweety I relly appreciate it, but really, I’m only going to be a few minutes and it would take a lot longer to take you than to just run up town by myself this time.” Me always worries when mommy decides to go sumwhere wiffout me, but when it’s these small little twips me dusn’t worry as much. Mommy left and wuz back home afur me kuld even close meez eyes and fall into nap land again. But she wuz cold fwum da top of her head to da tippy toes. So after she put everyfin’ down and took off hers coat, sis Lexi and me did a cuddlefest and warmed hers back up. So twu to da silly superstition, we spent ow first day of da new year duin’ zactly what we did when da clock stwuck midnight, cuddlin’ wiff mommy.
