Where does the time go anymore? It seems like August was just beginning and here is September right in my face. Time flies when you’re having fun, huh? August was a good month for us. We got a lot accomplished around the house, had a financial upturn, the dogs are happy, we’re all healthy and my To Do list is almost empty. What’s not to love?
Dusty came through his dental cleaning like a champ (spoiled but fine after a little pouting and being babied for 24 hours). The pack is reaching a happy medium now and coast through the day. R took the 3 big ones for a walk tonight and they are peacefully asleep in their crates at this point. It’s funny how sometimes we communicate non-verbally with the dogs. With just a look we know what they want or what they’re asking for. Fancy tells me when it’s time to eat just like Jolie used to. Bandit tells me when he is missing something (tonight he was looking for a tennis ball and couldn’t find any—I opened a new pack and made him a happy man). The four small Chis have taken to playing together…for the first time ever. It’s so good to see them happy and relaxed. It’s also good to be relaxed with them and enjoying the happiness as a family.
I haven’t gotten the sewing bug yet because I’ve been so distracted by the freedom I suddenly found in my life. Smaller pack, less stress, more money to do some redecorating around the house, etc. It’s opened up some new vistas for me that I hadn’t explored for some time. I’ve bought some embroidery designs I so want to do but I’m like a pinball machine right now bouncing off new ideas and activities and have yet to settle down. I don’t know how long it will take to be able to concentrate again. Maybe it’s the time of year because Mom and I discussed this very thing yesterday and she feels the same way. Sometimes it just seems like there’s too many other things that need to be tidied up. I must be in Tidy Mode then; whatever you want to call it, I’m enjoying the experience.
