So the majority of the people reading this blog will say, once they see this post pop up in their email, "TYPICAL Erin!" The reason is, well, it's finals time once again in Aggieland! But this time around, it's different. Why, you ask? Well, because this is the LAST round of finals of my college career! After Tuesday (assuming I pass all my finals) I will be a college grad! (Please excuse all the "!")
So, because I am procrastinating, I will take my time in recounting our Thanksgiving weekend. Actually, for me, it was quite uneventful. I spent some time with family, ate some turkey, and worked on my 20 page paper that was due the week after. But Sage, she had a FANTASTIC weekend. She woke up early, retrieved some ducks, played with her Frisbee, did some fishing, played with her tennis ball, chased some ducks, explored the beach, and then repeated this cycle for 3 days!
I didn't get to accompany John and my cousin on the morning hunting trips, but all John could do was rave about how well Sage did in the duck blind. As she has gotten a little older, she is MUCH more well behaved and patient waiting for the birds to come. She pays attention well (except for the last morning of the trip). John said she was so tired on the last day that she was sleeping ON HER BACK, with all 4 paws in the air while waiting for some ducks to come!
Sage also had fun fishing. She has never really expressed any interest in watching people fish, but Thanksgiving was different...I think it's because there were lots and lots of fish being reeled in!
Since Thanksgiving, Sage has been staying in Houston as I prepare for finals. It's been real quiet around here and I'm not sure I like it! I hear no barking as people walk by the house, I hear no snoring while Sage sleeps soundly in her bed, and feel no wet slobbery tennis balls in my lap as I try to read a textbook! I can't wait for finals to be over so I can be done with college, but mostly I want to be reunited with my little Sage. Life is pretty uneventful without her close by and it's not nearly as fun coming home without being greeted at the door by an overly excited Sage with a teddy bear, tennis ball and stuffed duck held tightly in her mouth.
