Have you ever had TOO much time on your hands? I mean to the point of having your routine turned upside-down and inside-out so that all the things you wanted to get done just kinda fell by the wayside? Well, that happened to me about two and a half weeks ago when hubby retired from a job he had come to hate.
Yup, after nearly 14 years, hubby decided he’d had enough of getting up at 6:30 every Monday through Friday to go to a job he couldn’t stand any more. I understand completely how he felt because that was the way I felt about my job by the time the company laid us off (even though to this day they refuse to call it a “lay off”). Now that he’s home all day, every day, my routine been totally messed up. No details, but let’s say I’m trying very hard to adjust so we don’t end up in divorce court.
So, with my routine all screwed up, I haven’t done much blogging lately. In fact, my last post was about two weeks ago for the “Dumb Ass Dog Owners” blog hop, titled “Getting Revenge on the Duchess” which can be found here. Truth be known, I’ve felt a bit overwhelmed by the idea of coming up with ideas for posts. Probably because I’ve become so used to not having to do much of anything else. And, in order to maintain my sanity I’ve had to take Callie and Shadow out in the backyard a lot more often to get away from the freakin television, which now seems to be “on” a minimum of sixteen hours a day. Not on the easy listening music channel, at a comfortable level that I could tolerate, but the news or sports, neither of which I can stand and normally at a decibel high enough for the next-door neighbors to hear through closed doors and windows.
Anyway, just a quick update on the dogs: Callie is healing nicely from her ACL surgery in October and already trying to do things on her own that she’s not supposed to do. Like going up and down the steps on her own, playing with her sisters, and happy dances on the linoleum floor in the kitchen. (I had to grab her the other day to keep her from falling.) Ducky is behaving much better since I started working with her again a few months ago. She and Shadow had a growling fest at the kitchen door the other night when I was getting ready to feed them; but I didn’t see who started it so I just put an end to it and left it at that. Sam said he didn’t think Ducky started it, but he didn’t see it start either so I just dropped it.
Well, that’s it for me today. This is my contribution to the Barks and Bytes Blog Hop, hosted by Heart Like A Dog and 2 Brown Dawgs. Hope y’all have a great day! Time for me to get a bowl of ice cream and interact with the other half.
