Mid-week thoughts

I live in denial at least half the time I’m awake.

It’s a special talent I have.

The struggles, the turmoil, it tugs at me, pulls me deeper into my self.

I wonder what is going on.

Growth spurts

Today I took my boy to Costco to get his passport photo done. And mine, too. Both of us are due to renew…

It appears a trip to Switzerland is in the works. My girl child is pestering me to death, and my family in Europe had given us a standing invitation, so now I’m finally figuring out what dates would be suitable.

For that we need current passports, of course, which is why we were at Costco. They have good prices there. 🙂

Lingering effects of endless distractions

The Weather Network on TV is having so! much! fun! with all of our weather woes here in North America at the moment. It’s quite amusing to sit on my couch with my coffee and watch them explain, over and over again, what to do and not to do because of the dangerous wind chills, and the snow, and the ice, and all the rest of it.

Back to the dog walking routine

I spent most of the Christmas break not doing much of anything, knowing our activities schedule will double as of January. I wanted to rest and charge my batteries as much as possible.

This is what it’s like nowadays when a summer sport has an ‘off-season’. In our case it’s baseball. For both kids. The indoor training sessions begin now, and sometime in May (hopefully) the outdoor practices will begin at the local diamonds. (This is true for competitive sports, not recreational ones.)

And January inevitably arrived, so now we’re back to routine and school and twice as many activities and…

Dog walking is back!

A container of food for the little old lady

The other day I went over to take Molly, the Schnoodle pup who just celebrated her 12th birthday, for a walk and then on to my house for a change of scenery.

(Scroll down and check out my Instragram feed of Molly’s head on my leg, preventing me from getting up and doing just about anything that day…)

Her female human is recuperating from a lengthy medical procedure and appreciated my offer to sit the pooch. The male human was at work.

As I entered the house, we exchanged some chit chat while simultaneously paying attention to a very barky Molly. Then, on my way out the door, my friend handed me a Tupperware container full of food.

Dog walking adventures: new fur friends in the ‘hood

The other day, an innocent little walk with a single poochie turned into an adventure involving four other dogs.

Oh what fun. 🙃

Embracing it

The other day my friend connected me with her friend who was seeking help with their anxious dog.

We connected via email and I sent her some availability to do a meet and greet this week.

A day went by and then I got an email back from her that she was confused; she thought I was a retired lady, not a SAHM with kids.

Ha.
