Monday Mischief: It’s Daddy This Time!

on February 11, 2013

Hi friends! Daisy here. Mommy refused to tattle on Daddy (in fact I think she agreed with him!), so I’m hijacking the blog again today.

Our kitchen project got put on hold halfway through – the cabinets and countertop were finally finished (after a LOT of problems with the kitchen cabinet company that dragged the job out for WEEKS), but then came Hurricane Sandy that caused that nasty ol’ tree to fall through our roof (which still isn’t fixed, we’re still waiting for the roofers), and so many other things happened at the end of last year that Daddy couldn’t paint the kitchen walls or tile the backsplash on weekends like he’d planned.  (Whew! That was a BIG sentence for a little pup!)

Anyway, now Daddy’s company went through a restructuring, and his division was among many cuts. From the VP all the way down – gone. So Daddy’s between jobs right now for the first time ever. Mommy’s nervous about it, but Daddy’s confident that he’ll find something soon. And me? I’m loving having company every day, even when Mommy goes out!

So Daddy’s using this time between jobs to finish the kitchen. The first thing he did was to paint the walls and trim, and that’s where his mischief came in.

First everything was fine. He introduced me to the new painting thingies that I’ve never seen before.

Hmmmm....well you're a curious little thing, aren't you?

Hmmmm….well you’re a curious little thing, aren’t you?

But when he filled a tray with paint and put it on the tarp-covered floor, he banned me from the room!

HEY! What's this blocking the doorway?! What do you mean I can't come in to supervise???

HEY! What’s this blocking the doorway?! What do you mean I can’t come in to supervise???

Now, Daddy knows I love to walk around on that green tarp, it makes a crunchy, crinkly sound that I just love. But he put those big steps in my way and told me to “stay” – what’s that all about? How will I know if he’s doing the job right??

Finally I gave up and decided to retaliate….um, I mean find some fun elsewhere in the house.

::sigh:: Oh forget it. I'll find some mischief to do in here.

Mommy says she’ll post a picture when the kitchen is done. She says she’s going to celebrate when this project is finally over!

  3. I’m sure your Daddy will find something soon , specially if you will escort him to the next interview. First I thought, now we can see a colored Daisy – but I’m glad you are unpainted ;o) It’s a nice idea to celebrate a fnished kitchen project ;o)

    House fixing projects take soooooo long! Best of luck to your dad!

  5. Well that’s kinda all good and bad stuff. I hope the dad finds a great job, and the kitchen gets finished.

  6. Paws crossed for your daddy’s job hunt. I hear there’s one at the Vatican going BOL 🙂

    Now how are you supposed to get into mischief with Dad there keeping an eye on you? No worries, I’m sure he’ll be back out again soon and you can get back to full on mischief

    You should go with your Dad to a job interview. The people there cannot say ‘no’ to your Dad if you look at them as you do in the last pic! Or you could practice together posing and mimic; your pose in the first and second pic is pure desire and devotion! If he learned this…

  9. We hope dad gets a great job soon and in the meanwhile we know your supaw-vision will be greatly appreciated. Roll on finished kitchen (excuse the pun). Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

    We hope your Dad finds a job real soon. It sounds like you are making the most of his company while you have him.

  13. Gizmo says:

    Sorry to hear the news about your Dad…my Momz got laid off too..She sez it’ll get better soon…probably best to stay out of that kitchen…I can tell you from experience if you get paint on you it only means the bath is next

  14. Zena says:

    Hope a new opportunity comes soon for your Dad – but not until the kitchen is finished!

  15. 2browndawgs says:

    Can’t wait to see the new kitchen. I am sure the job goes faster with Daisy “helping”…lol. Good luck to your Dad with the job hunting!

    Hi Daisy,

    I hope your Dad finds a really great job really soon buddy 🙂 But it’s great that he’s finishing the kitchen off in the meantime, though I’ve got no idea why he thinks he can do it without your supervision? Huh? Did you find some good mischief to keep you busy?

    Wags to all

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    Take good care of your parents Daisy. You’re such a sweet girl!

  18. Oh my! Daisy, you’d better be a good girl. Your family is going through a lot right now…too many challenges in such a short space of time. Now behave!! And give your daddy a big hug for at least putting his time to good use…photos will be VERY enjoyable. oxo

  19. Chancy and Mumsy says:

    Sorry you didn’t get to walk on the green tarp sweet Daisy. You may have gotten pain on your pretty furs though had you been in there where your dad was painting. We will be looking forward to seeing the kitchen when it is all finished. Happy Valentines Day!Hugs and nose kisses
