It’s been a whole week and I’m still feeling totally wiped out. I don’t think I ever really recovered from the holiday weekend, and suddenly here we are, facing the weekend once again. We had a lot of “extras” in our week. We had a constant rotation of dogs we’ve been watching the last two weeks, plus a cable install one day, and an extra unscheduled work meeting that popped up mid week. I think I may have been ok if I could have just stuck to my regular schedule, but the extras put me over the edge. I’m really looking forward to sleeping in until whatever time the dogs let me tomorrow. Despite my haze, there are a few things I took the time to notice, and feel grateful for this week.
1. Sunday I got to read in peace for a whole afternoon. The dogs were all so wiped out from the festivities that they didn’t bug me for attention or to play once. No friends came over. I had nothing to cook. I had nothing else to do. It was amazing.
2. Clean sheets! Our housekeepers came this week and the house was clean for about a second, but when you have 4 dogs underfoot, its only a matter of time before the dog hair starts to accumulate. Fortunately, the sheets remain dog hair-free for much longer than the rest of the house. Plus, there’s just something Great about crisp clean sheets on a warm summer evening am I right?
3. I got a little hug session in with my sweet niece Grace before I took my brother and sister in law to the airport. She’s a smiley little sweetie that one. Definitely was a bright point in an otherwise hectic day.
4. For my blog birthday I asked you, my readers, to leave a comment with the best piece of advice you’ve ever received. This is now my most favorite comment thread of all time. Thank you all for sharing your wisdom here! Excellent advice for sure.
Stick a fork in me, I’m done! If you need me I’ll be catching as many zzzz’s as possible all weekend long. Have a good one!
