Restless Kids, Nutty Dog, and Cranky Husband

We’ve had a couple thundery days now, and our poor Bo is a nervous wreck. He seems to feel that the only safe place is right up against Ed or me. My picture shows the view under my desk – trembling collie. I wonder if a beer or a shot of whiskey would calm him down?

After dinner, the kids and I went for a walk. They have been getting a little antsy from being cooped up inside the last two days. Making cardboard box forts and messes with Play-Doh just doesn’t use up enough of their energy, and Ed’s nerves are nearing the same state as Bo’s. Running around a few blocks helped quite a bit, and we will hope for nicer weather tomorrow!

AWWW! Poor Bo! Reminds me of our JRT, Stella. She does the same thing with the slightest roll of thunder.

Hope you get some good energy-burning weather this week :)
