On the Fifth Day of Christmas: Back to the Monday RoutinePosted: December 29, 2014
And on the fifth day of Christmas . . . my humans and I were back into our regular routine. Monday is laundry day in our house. It’s a New Orleans tradition to do the laundry on Mondays, so that’s what my mommy does (even though technically we’re in Baton Rouge, not New Orleans). Mommy and I were up while it was still dark outside. (To be totally honest, it wasn’t really that early but it was still pretty dark because we had yet another day of rain.) Mommy collected the dirty clothes and started the washing machine . . . all with my supervision, of course.
And then Mommy put a big pot of red beans on the stove. Red beans and rice on Mondays is another New Orleans tradition. The beans cook all day long while mommies all over the city (and daddies, too) do the laundry.
With the laundry in the washing machine and the beans on the stove, it was time for me to join my daddy in the home office. I love to “work” in the home office when my daddy’s in town. It’s totally relaxing. I sleep with my head wedged as closely as possible to the chair so my daddy has absolutely zero chance of moving. That’s our routine, and I was very happy to be back into a routine on this fifth day of Christmas.
