Now that the holidays are over, it seems like things are getting back to 'normal' i.e. chaotic. Mom's work email is begining to get swamped with emails and she is muttering more HBO words under her breath every time a new email comes in (I have a pretty rich HBO vocab now).

But the good thing is that it seems like she will be able to work from home indefinitely (**jumps for joy**) although she still needs to make some infrequent trips back to the office to collect her mail and for the occasional meeting or two. So this is pretty good news to us for the new year. Hopefully this is an indication of more good things to come.

With mom spending more time at home, it'd also mean that she'd have no excuse not to take us out for more walks and to make yummy food for us.

Just after Christmas and before the New Year, a package (b
elow) arrived in the mail addressed to 'Huskee Boy's Mom'...

The package came all the way from Mexico, from a sweet dachshund who owns all the prettiest dresses... Miss Lorenza!!

In the package was a 'Fortune Lamb'. You can read all about the story of the Fortune Lamb from Lorenza's blog here. Lorenza and her mom are so kind to send our mom a Fortune Lamb (cos according to the tradition, you cannot buy the lamb yourself and someone has to give it to you as a gift). They hung this lamb on their Christmas tree to charge it up with positive energy before sending it out to us, and we have also abided by the rules of the tradition and have hung the lamb on our door since New Year's day. Hopefully, we will have an abundance of good luck and everything nice in 2010.

Muchas Gracias, dear Lorenza and mom!! We appreciate your kind thoughts behind this gift (and we promise that we will keep the lamb safe from Hershey.. When she first saw it, she thought it was a toy for her and she sat at the door eyeing the lamb for the longest time!!)

You are so lucky to have mom working from home. Now she can wear her jammies full time! Plus she won't waste time that she could be spending with you by "getting ready for work."


Teddy said...

How lucky you are to have your mom at home with you all day!! I'm sure you'll settle into a comfortable work routine together.

That was sweet of Lorenza to send you a fortune lamb. I've never heard of it, but it's a great idea. I bet you'll have some good luck this year!

What a cute lambie! That's so sweet of Lorenza and her mom to send you such a thoughtful gift. Many good wishes from us too!

Aki and Poopie said...

I'm sure Lorenza's tree is very lucky and will increase the lamb's power 1Million times!

Which reminds me, your mum's pretty shoes are still safe and chew free right? That must mean the lamb is working its magic this very moment! hehe..

We hope that your days will continue to be blessed with all good zen and positive vibes. We are always rooting for a miracle for your entire family H&H!

We love all of you so much and hope to see you within this year ;)

lots of drooly kisses,

Aki and Poopie

We read all about the fortune lamb on Lorenza's blog some time ago and are delighted that it has come to you guys and your parents.
We know no that good fortune will be yours in 2010 and great news that your mom can work more at home.
Our mum says thank you so very much for the birthday wishes - she had a very late day at work yesterday and woke up feeling tired and old!!!
Humans.......when will we ever understand them!
We have told her she is another year nearer retiring.
