Relationship Status: Chihuahua

The nurse was standing in front of a terminal screen, going through my medical history. "No alcohol or drug use: check. No depression: check. Are you sexually active?" and I said "No, but I have a serious girlfriend."

I could almost see the little gears above the nurse's head as she was trying to understand my answer. I finally said "My girlfriend is a Chihuahua" and she said "Ahhh, my sister's boyfriend is also a Chihuahua."

My girlfriend misses me terribly even when I'm only out running errands. She usually gives me a scolding when I come back, but she doesn't stay upset very long. She goes from scolding to sweet.

"No, you can't go out with your friends"

Life just keeps getting better for me and the pack. I have most of a comprehensive life plan which involves being self employed and working mostly from home with my girlfriend on my lap. We all answer to someone, but I think having several smaller clients would give me the most freedom and flexibility by not putting all my eggs in one basket.

And rather than enjoying some of the benefits of being a bachelor again, like night clubs and/or a human girlfriend, I think I'm just going to keep my head down and stay focused on my own health and fitness. I'll put that energy into the business and my doggies. It's all clicking into place. Now I need a stationary bicycle, about 5 less pounds, and then I'll go buy a couple sharp suits! I was fortunate in my early career to have good mentors, who taught me to dress for the corporate world, among a million other things.
