My Garrett is HOME!!!!!!!! Did you hear me? HOME! After a month & a half of training, my bub is back in my puny arms.

Obviously I missed him more than life, but it’s a little odd adjusting to having another human being in the house again. Like, I forgot what a burden it was to have to close the door when I pee.

However, I feel so blessed I don’t have to take the trash out anymore. I don’t care what you say – I LOVE GENDER ROLES. Leave me in the kitchen while he tinkers on cars & mows the lawn & crap, please.

My blood pressure did soar a bit when I bought groceries for 2 again. Like, all the darn meat this man requires. I can’t. Are you sure you don’t want to go back to the woods & play some more, honey?
