I had a crappy day yesterday. I really can't tell you why, I just don't know. I was feeling a little depressed and melancholy all day for no particular reason, just a bum day. However, I got home from work and walked in the door and Berlin, oh little Berlin. She toddled across the floor as fast and she could, lifted her arms, and I swooped her up. She tackled my face she was so happy to see me. She grabbed both sides of my face and just laughed from the pure excitement that I was home. She offered me 6 or 7 kisses and threw her head back and just giggled and laughed. She only stopped laughing when I tried to put her down, just to take off my coat. How dare I put her down when I have just walking in the door? I guess I didn't dare :) It is great to have someone be so excited to see you. Especially when the last time they saw you was only 8 hours earlier. She changed my whole mood. I mean, wouldn't someone this scrumptious change your mood too?
