May 7

Today, I am officially Dixie Cup Uchitelle’s Mom. I signed the papers, so she is stuck with me. A great perk of having a pet in the house is that now I can carry on a conversation with Alexa and Dixie. I tell Alexa good morning when I go into the kitchen to make my first cup of coffee. She always responds in a cheerful voice. No waking up on the wrong side of the counter for her. Dixie wakes up when I wake her up. Her problem is that she is so exuberant about going out that she yipes.  It sounds loud to me, so I am teaching her not to be so vocal. At least so early in the morning. Did I forget to mention that she now sleeps on the bed with me. She started out sleeping at the foot of the bed. Over the 9 days that I have had her, she has crept up to the pillow. I am happy and so is she.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
