Totally Worth It

Today started off as a pretty crummy day.  I have been working on a project for several weeks and was trying to finish it up, but things kept going wrong.  To add to my frustration, I have a co-worker who is driving me up the walls.  It's hard to explain what she does that makes me so crazy, but in a nutshell she does not pick up on social cues and does not always respond appropriately to stress.

After beating my head against the desk when I ran into another road block and my co-worker wouldn't stop talking to me I escaped to the kitchen for a late lunch.  Luna snacked on her Kong full of peanut butter and treats while tried to calm down.

My mom has told me that it is important to have something in your life that makes the hard days at work totally worth it.  Sometimes it's just a pair of nice shoes that helps keep you from going totally crazy.  As I was eating lunch I was trying to think of what I have in my life that keeps me happy.  I looked over at Luna and realized she fills that need.  At the end of a hard day, Luna is always there to greet me.  She is always happy to see me, gives me plenty of love, tolerates/enjoys me dressing her up, and plays our silly games.  I'm so lucky to have her and even luckier that I can take her to work with me.
My Lovebug.
After my lunch break I felt a whole lot better and I was able to go tackle the rest of my day.  Good girl, Luna.

Oh, how I wish I could take one (or both) of the Brindle Kids to work. It would surely make the day better. Glad you can take Luna with you!

With my recent loss of Song I totally appreciate how precious Luna is.

Give her an extra hug from me.
