Poor Gryff. He's such a loving boy but his enthusiasm can be exhausting [View all]

Yesterday was very stressful and I was kind of hanging on by one frayed thread. Gryff thought the perfect solution was to be underfoot and in my way, no matter what I was trying to do. Like connecting my new internet modem which involved using an app. That was a new experience for me and I kind of got things out of order. Gryff seemed determined to 'help'. It took me three tries to finally succeed.

Then while I was trying to do some mobile bank deposits, again, he wanted to make sure those checks were FLAT so I'd get a good picture. Well, pictures of him. I didn't want to deposit Gryff in to my bank account. I admit I lost my patience with him and then I felt awful.

Last night while I was desperately trying to fall asleep, Gryff just wanted endless scritches. When he saw my eyes open at 2am, again, SCRITCHES, please!! ARGHHHH!!! Of course, though, he got scritches.

I've taken a deep breath and today is a better day so my stress level is lower and Gryff is not worried about me.

I know he really just wants to help.
