So here’s the new work routine. My home office is setup in my kitchen/dining room area with my laptop on my table. I’m setup there because there’s a window available with plenty of sunlight. Diego-San has taken to sitting on one side of the laptop for a few minutes and then moving to the other side. He pretty much does this the entire time I’m working. He gets yelled at when he takes a short cut and tries to wander over the laptop. Let’s just say my work efficiency isn’t the best.
I’ve been worried about Diego-san’s health the past couple of years. He’s lost so much weight and seems so frail. And he sleeps all the time. I don’t know if our new 24/7 schedule has rejuvenated him some. He rarely naps when I’m doing my work preferring instead to sit next to me. And I’ve learned he can still leap onto the stove, kitchen sink and kitchen table. All against house rules. Leaps Theo and Thompson were never capable of. It’s good to see Diego-San still have some of his youthful athleticism.
I finally understand the boyz point of view- it doesn’t matter what day it is when you are in the same place 24/7. What they don’t understand is I’m still on the work clock eight hours for five of those days. Diego-San let me know today that my lap must be available anytime I am home.
Diego-San had a hard day yesterday. He wanted to be with me all day long. Either trying to rub against my hands or face, jumping in my lap and trying to give me a big bear hug (he’s good at those), and bellowing whenever I was on the phone. I didn’t want to separate us with a closed door but I ended up doing that for key moments of the day. This all is a period of adjustment. Hopefully short term.
