There’s only one room in the entire house that is almost completely set up: the guest room. Now, as Scottie Mom followers know, the guest room is not meant to be an ordinary guest room. In fact, the main purpose is to allow Heather, Mr. K and I to continue our sleepovers while Scottie Dad is away without breaking the rules (until we convince Scottie Dad to grant hooman bed privileges, of course). Two weeks ago, we bought a mattress. Seven days later, it was delivered. A week after that, we found a comforter set and today, I went out and bought pillows. We’re still missing a head board but that won’t stop me from spending tonight in the company of two cuddly Scots!
As I let the pups enter their new suite, I was surprised to see just how quickly they settled in. Heather did her ostrafish dance on the carpet, screatching her chin on the rug and pushing her body forward with her hind legs. Mr. K had zoomies around and under the bed for a solid 10 or 15 minutes before he allowed me to pick him up to rest with me on the newly made up guest bed. Once they were on the bed, Heather looked oh-so-happy and Mr. K proceeded to dance around – hopping this way and that before rolling around on his back and sticking his tongue out for all the world to see. Now, the two are contentedly snoozing away and I’ve finally gotten a chance to give everyone another long overdue update!
Setting up house takes a lot longer than I ever anticipated but with each little bit we finish, I feel a small sense of pride (and a sense of hope that an end to all this nonsense is in sight and it won’t go on forever). At one point, I was so overwhelmed, I didn’t know where to start because I had so much to unpack. So, what did I do? I grabbed a box of my favorite mugs (a number of which are Scottie patterned) and set up our very first kitchen cabinet! Then, I set out the dog treat maker on the counter. And after that: the dog food, treats and accessories cabinet. You know, the important things. Would you believe Heather and Mr. K’s stuff alone took up the lower cabinets in our kitchen island? (What can I say? They have a lot of cute outfits to keep our friends entertained!)
The more we knock out in terms of setting up house and unpacking, the more pictures I’ll be able to take and share. I’m told that the Scottie new home video tour is almost ready and I’m hoping to be able to post that to our YouTube account sometime this week. If you want to go ahead and head on over there to subscribe so you’ll be among the first to see it, be our guest. I apologize to all for the long wait but I can certainly promise it will be worth it! It’s our first time working with video so Heather and Mr. K insisted on getting it just right. They definitely did not disappoint. I may be biased, but I’m starting to think these two are destined to become stars…but I’ll let Scottie Mom friends be the judge when the video is finally ready.
