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!!
