The past 36+ hours have been the most relaxing, non-stressful hours I have had in quite a long time. I have been only doing the things I feel like doing and nothing else. I can’t remember the last time I was capable of acting so carefree and can honestly say it has been long over due.
Sure, there are the two dogs here to take care of and a few chickens, but I just don’t see those things as encroaching on my down time. As I’ve said many, many times, I love animals. The dogs only need food, some play time, and loves. Super easy. The chickens just need food and fresh water. Also super easy. These two ‘chores’ are not chores at all, in my mind. Just part of the daily mix, at least while I am here.
I am taking the remainder of my time here to straighten up, clean a little, and color my hair. The straightening up and cleaning are things I consider just what you do when you stay at someone’s house. Its not that I made messes or anything like that. The fact that I adore my friend makes me want to do nice things for her, and I think she will appreciate what I’m doing. I’m not going overboard, doing a thorough clean, just leaving things a little nicer than when I got here, not that things were a mess even a little bit. Its kind of a little thanks for my mini vacation from my RV life.
I’ll head home here in probably the next few hours. It will be nice to get home to see my puppies and my husband and son. My husband told me the puppies have been moping around since I’ve been gone. Sure, they are great when they are out for a walk, but once they are home, the pouting begins, again. This is the first time in their life that Mom hasn’t been home at night. I’m sure they will just about wag their tails off when the see me. Maybe I’ll take a nap with them so they can cuddle me, and me them. Maybe I’ll go on the evening walk with them so we can play at the field. I’ve been doing things for the past day and a half in the manner of if I feel like it and I think I am going to try to hold onto that for the remainder of the day. Real life starts, again, tomorrow.
Well, there is the timer for my hair. Have a great day, Everyone!!!
