I’m officially obsessed with Game of Thrones. I’m definitely not getting out enough. This puppy has taken over my life. So I’ve made my life about getting him potty trained and watching men fight ’til the death. The potty training isn’t going as well as Thrones binging. But I have to remember he’s only 9 weeks old and we’ve only had him for a little over a week. But it’s frustrating when he holds it for 7 hours at night then during the day, he does what he wants when it comes to urination. Not poo, just urination. He’ll go to the bathroom twice outside, then as soon as he comes inside, he goes again. Right on the carpet.

So I understand the small bladder thing, but if he can hold it for 7 hours, there’s absolutely no reason for him to let it go 5 minutes after already going. He even hopped up on the couch and pissed on a pillow right next to me. Straight up. Do you think it’s some sort of dominance thing? Or hatred for me thing? I don’t know. I don’t get it. I feel like how my parents probably felt when I was a teenager. Just at a loss for what to do. I even cried the other night out of frustration. I keep trying to listen to all the advice and be a good mom, but it feels like it’s not working. We take him out all the time, we reward him with a treat and say “good boy, potty outside” every time he does it outside. He even looks to us for a treat when he goes outside, so he knows he’s doing something right. But it doesn’t seem to be enough. Today I’m going to go get a bell for us to use every time we go out so he knows to ring it. I’m hoping that’s the miracle to all of our potty training issues.

It was funny the other day when someone said that babies come after dogs. I feel the complete opposite now. If I had questioned having a child before, there’s no way now. If I’m stressed out by a dog that pees about a tablespoon full of liquid, how could I ever handle a child? Impossible. I don’t understand how parents do it. I think I’ll just stick to trying to master raising a puppy and understanding what they are saying on Game of Thrones.

So back to that show. I’m obsessed with it, but I’m not 100% sure that I love it. It’s pretty effed up. I mean, when you kill animals and children in a show, it’s pretty bad. Adults, whatever. It happens in pretty much every show. But horses. Don’t ever kill a horse. I have to cover my eyes every time something frightening like that happens. I’m not really into death. But I’m super into the dragon girl. I can’t wait until her dragon messes some bad people up. I’m jealous of her dragons. I bet they were easily potty trained.

    We are snowed in today so what better thing to do then make sweets. These were delicious but I had a hard time getting them out with out make a mess of it. Not sure what I did wrong. They do not look as nice as your photo but I will still eat them. I did have them in the freezer longer then 30 minutes since I got side tracked.
