Nothing profound to say — just wanted to let everyone know that I’m officially “in” the house. Last night was the first night we stayed — we being me, my dog Precious, and my mom (my first overnight guest).

My dog barked occasionally throughout the first hours of the night as she got used to the new noises and tried to protect my mom and I both. Precious continued to be uneasy until she figured out she could sleep in the hallway and keep an eye on both rooms at once. I feel safe with her on the job!
