Uh-oh! A Naughty Bunny!
I can't believe how good I'm feeling today. Yes, I'm still a little green around the gills, but not nearly as bad as I was on Wednesday. I went to bed early last night, all cozied up in my softest pajamas, snuggled under a pile of blankets on the bed. I only vaguely remember when Brad came home. I think I told him something about the laundry and then drifted back to sleep. I slept pretty solidly all night.
This morning I slept in until about 9:30, which my body must have needed. After that I didn't do a whole lot other than write, wrap some gifts and pig out to replace the calories I'd chucked over the last couple days. I spent the earliest part of the afternoon playing with Gimli. He still seems a bit wary after so much interaction from Olivia over the weekend. He hasn't let me pick him up as much as he usually does. That hasn't precluded him from begging for treats though.
Yesterday was laundry day, and since Gimli likes the adventure of running around the laundry baskets, I let him out of his cage when I was about to fold some laundry today. Just before settling in to tackle the whites load, my tummy alerted me to an urgent situation. I scurried off to the bathroom. Meanwhile, I left Gimli unsupervised in the loft. (Oh, I could KICK MYSELF for that!) Miraculously, he didn't nudge open the door to the guest room, which was ajar. Instead, he chose to snack on my patent leather red shoes which I had left in front of the television.
I suppose I could just do like in "Pretty Woman" and color the scuffed parts in with a red marker. Even if I did, they would forever have little teeth marks in them. At least they weren't expensive shoes, right? So, from now on Gimli goes back into the cage if I have to get so much as a tissue from the other room.
So kids, what have we learned?
1. Even a bunny can't resist a pair of great shoes
2. A quiet bunny is a NAUGHTY bunny
3. Never leave your bunny unsupervised
4. Put away the dang shoes like your husband wanted you to in the first place
