The time is drawing nearer when I'm moving back to my parents' house. I know most of you are probably cringing at the very idea, but I think it's the best decision for me right now. I want to pay off some of the debt that's been riding along with me for almost 10 years (student loans, ha. What good did being a student ever do me?) and then save up some money. I hope to someday buy a house, and it's not going to happen before those two things get done.
I like my parents, but I'm worried about some things. Things like my animals. Specificially, Huck. He's very naughty, and my parents let him get away with it. I'm going to have to specifically put down some ground rules so he doesn't turn into the world's worst dog while we're living there.
1. No people food.
2. No people food. No matter how cute he looks.
3. If people food falls to the floor and he snatches it, either ignore him completely and let him think he's sneakier than he is, or shout at him and shake a spoon or something to make him think you're really mad that he ate the people food. Do not make squealy noises or otherwise indicate that you're secretly pleased he got away with something.
4. It's not cute when he jumps up into your face. No matter what your brain is telling you. Don't let him do it. No excuses.
5. Don't make him think he is the most important part of your day. Even if he is. He shouldn't be. He's a dog.
I'm sure there are more. I'm getting antsy thinking about it. This will be ok, right? RIGHT?
