Yes Virginia, There Is A Potty Patch Fairy!

December 12, 2012

Hey wow!  Look at the date!  Today is 12-12-12.   I'm thinking that this is the last time we will see a date like this for another hundred years.   If I'm reading my calendar right, this month of December also has five Saturdays, five Sundays and five Mondays.  Hmmm, a very interesting month indeed!

Did the title of today's post catch your eye?  Woo Hoo, I am so happy!  Earlier tonight, I was just so tired that I decided to skip taking Pogo outside for his sprinkle to see what he would do.  Earlier, I had noticed that he had peed on the pee pad in front of his potty patch.  So I checked under the grass patch, and will wonders ever cease!  I found that he had peed on the grass patch too.

Well, this made me so happy, I cleaned up and put a new pee pad in place.  So far, so good.  I woke up a little while ago (about 1:15 a.m.), decided to wash the dishes that I had left in the sink, and start a pot of corn chowder.  I noticed Pogo slipping out to the pantry, and then back to his little bed.  So I went to check, and yes! yes! yes!  He had peed on the potty patch again. 

Does it get any better than this?  Now I won't have to go outside in the middle of the night or when the weather is nasty.  Woo Hoo, be still my heart!!  He still leaves me little gifts here or there once in a while, but he is trying and I love him to pieces.

Right now, the potatoes are boiling, and everything else is ready to be put into the pot.  When it is done, I'll let it cool, set a bowl of it aside for moi, and put the rest into large bowls in the refrigerator.  Instant super delicious suppers!  Yum, yum.

Let me share a cute photo with you.  This is Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus, in cupcake form.

My granddaughter Jasmine made two dozen of these for a party with her cheerleading team.   I have to tell you how yummy they were.  Yes, I shared with Joe.  I gave him the reindeer and I had the Santa.  Mmm, mmm, mmm.  Jasmine, Joe says to tell you that you can send over all the cupcakes you want to.  These were wonderful.  Thank you sweetie.

I'm still waiting to hear from Su's daughter.  I'm hoping that the report will be a good one.  Su, I'm missing your smile,  Get well soon.  Now I have to get in the kitchen and finish up the chowder.  Then maybe I'll catch a few more hours of winks.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh whee, Pogo is giving you real presents for Chriostmas time! What a good dog to finally going to pee on the right spot! Give him a big hug from me, and tell him I think he is a clever doggie! Let's hope he will keep doing it all the time on the right place!
Have a fantastic day

Good boy POGO! I know you are so happy for him. He is finally feeling a little more secure! (and loved)!
The chowder sounds wonderful too! Great for cold nights when you are too tired to cook. I do potato soup, then add different things each time to make it more interesting! (i.e. peas, corn, carrots, mixed veggies, cheese...etc) LOL! And always have cornbread made too!
Well, now that I am truly hungry (the cupcake photos caused it) I think I will fix some breakfast and get my hiney in gear! Got packages to put in the mail today!
Chat more later, have a great day! Hugs, Mat

Mazel Tov! I knew he'd get it! Maybe it's just that he doesn't want to go out in the dark and cold either. Only another woman who has struggled with insomnia would understand the need to do dishes and cook in the wee hours of the morning. Loved the title - very creative. Perhaps Pogo realized the significance of the 12-12-12 day?
