Quick, Mindless Update
Mama Celeste - visiting for a sleep-over this weekend.
Whoa whoa ... busy, tired, overwhelmed, bored; all of it. I'm so tired but I haven't been able to sleep. I really suffered the consequences of eating that ice cream the other night. I'm sick again - not just tired. I'm hoping to get in to see my doc in the morning. But you know how that goes with an HMO. I have to call first thing in the morning in hopes there was a cancellation. Otherwise, I'll see her next week. I'm sure I can wait. I'd just like to know what the heck's going on this time!
I know my resistance is low. The mono makes my immune system weak. My body can't fight the common cold the way it normally would. But I'm so over being sick, I could pull my hair out.
Business is booming. This is the busy season. I can't afford to be sick much longer. I know...I know... It will take the time it needs to take. [I'm really ready for it to be on my time!]
I met with the potential new clients the other day - on time even - and I really liked them. I think they liked me too. They seemed really surprised by how quickly one of their dogs took to me. That's always a good sign. But they had a few other dogwalkers to interview before making a decision. I hope to hear good news before the weekend. Let's hold the space for that. Ommmm...
Today felt like Friday all day. Perhaps it's because I'm boarding a fellow dogwalker's dog till Sunday. I've also committed to caring for two dogs and two cats in Venice all weekend - starting tonight. Lots of walks and visits. Also, today was the last day of my morning hikes for a while. The family is going away for the summer. I won't see them for two months. Yeah, seems very much like a Friday.
A few of my clients are taking Monday off as a holiday. I'm considering canceling with all my dogs and taking Monday to rest too. Otherwise, I won't have one full day of rest till next weekend, since I'm working through this weekend. I knew it was going to be a busy, long weekend. I'm just taking it one moment at a time.
I finally bought a cooler for my car. Now I can pack a real lunch and not worry about it spoiling. My poor bananas go from green to brown practically overnight. Once the heat of summer really hits, the cooler will make a huge difference.
And wait till you see the new addition to the PeaceMobile. I hope to take pictures tomorrow. That reminds me, I have to take pictures of Hunny's new collar that her Auntie Danielle gave her.
Sorry if a lot of this doesn't make much sense. I just felt like checking in. And if I spend any time editing, I'll fall asleep before I hit save. Good night!
