What a Girl Wants

I was snoozing away at 7:15 this morning when I felt Mabel jump off the bed. A few seconds later, she was playing with my hand hanging off the edge of my bed. Strange... she had gone out to potty at 3:30. As I got up to let her out, I realized I needed to take care of my own business first.

I rolled across the bed to get out on the bathroom side - I guess I should tell you just how tiny my bathroom is. While every home I've had in California has had tiny bathrooms, the master bath in this house is exceptionally small. I've been on boats with bigger bathrooms!

Still, the tiny bathroom has had its advantages, like when I had surgery and was in a wheelchair. I simply rolled across the bed with some force, tucking my left knee in so I could land on my right foot and grab onto the doorway. Hop, grab the sink. Twist my right foot inward toward my left, pivot and sit down. Roll, hop, twist, pivot and I'm on the throne.

Thanks to the mirrors on my closets and the decorative mirrors on the opposite wall, I can see every square inch of my bedroom from the john.

As I sat down there this morning, Mabel's made her true intentions known. No, she did not want to go outside to potty. There was something else she desired.

It was a warm spot in the bed on a chilly morning with 600 thread count sheets next to her furry little bod she craved! She woke me up to have my spot in the bed!

After I opened the back door for her, did she budge??? Nooooo! I checked email - a sure fire way to get her attention. Mommy is not allowed on the computer before the princess eats! Did that rouse her??? Noooo! Only the sound of her morning kibble hitting her bowl got her out of bed.

Hey, what can I say. It's her house. I just pay the mortgage.

Spot's pulled that on me more times than I can count! I don't really mind except when the sheets have just been changed. All I ask is one night on sheets that don't have dog hair or bits of leaves on them!

That's so cute that Mabel doesn't let you on the computer before her breakfast!

I miss you guys! Keep the stories coming, they make me less homesick for the States.

Paris Hilton is over here for a week. I can't even get away from her here in South Korea!
