Freedom: Day One

Yesterday was my first day of being a stay at home dog sitter.

I woke up at 5:30, which is my normal wake up time.  The dogs don't know that I thought I was able to sleep in from now on.  I tried to tell them and they stuck their tails in my face and gave me my Good Morning! Kisses... How is a girl supposed to ignore that for a pillow and Netflix in bed? 

So, I decided this is a good thing, so I can have a routine.

I made myself coffee, took care of the dog chores and the dogs and by 6:30, we were all snuggled in on the living room couch.  I sipped on my coffee and kept up with my Facebook Friends who are just waking up for the day.  I turned on my Netflix.  I'm on a CSI:Miami Binge-a-Thon at this point in my life.  I'm not the hugest fan, but I do like it.  I already burned through CSI:NY, so this is the next logical step.

I am feeling VERY good about  my decision and enjoying this home thing. 

I think of the many projects that I've been putting off until this time in my life, and I decide that it's my first day of freedom, so I will just ignore them for now.  I have plenty of time to do them.

At about noon, I found myself getting irritated by some Facebook activities.  One day I'll have to do myself a favor and get rid of some of those Negative Nellies.  But... Not today.. I have all the time in the world to do that.

I putzed (that may be a MN word for screwed around) the kitchen, did some laundry, took a hot bubble bath, thought about starting to unpack my spare room since I've put it off for a year, but no.  I have several days to get this task done.

By about 3:30, I was about ready to pull my hair out from "relaxing".  I have decided that I am not 100% proficient at this task.  Even though I feel better already, I took myself from "Yay!!" to "What am I doing??" in a matter of part of one day!  I will work on this... After all, I have the rest of  my life to figure it out.

At about 6:30, I was ready to call it a day and go to bed.  I didn't.  I waited until 8:00. 

I went to bed lastnight and this morning (Day 2) I was up at 5:30 ready and raring to go!!

This stay at home thing is going to be GREAT!!

PS.  I have my first part time job interview this morning (Day 2).    Wish me luck!!

    1. Thank you for your tireless efforts! I will see if there is a different access to set up. :)
