Hello My Wonderful Friends;
I thought I would take just a moment and explain myself;
You see, in addition to my 40+ hour a week job, as many of you know, I also do lawn care. So, tonight is basically the first night this week that I've not worked doing leaves after my day job - frankly I needed a night off.
I've also increased my involvement with the local rescue organization. I hope you will all forgive me, but I'm keeping that life separate. I feel like a schmuck doing so, but as - again - some of you know, my "blogger life" and the facade of my daily life are not quite so similar as I would like. I am finding that they are coming closer every day, but I'm not ready to be so free quite yet. I will tell you that I've created another blog to showcase the pictures I take, so others can see themselves with the dogs, or just see the dogs in a different environment than our very professional photographer uses.
I guess this is taking at least 5 hours a week, posting the pics and handling any comments or problems. Likely more, you know how it is...
I've tried to begin my writing again. I'm actually a bit stuck on one, so if anyone would like to read it and offer ideas, I'd love the help.
Finally, I spend about an hour every night - well, every night but this one - I've sort of made tonight a lazy night. I told Scottie that I bought a pizza, rented a movie, and have spent the last 5 hours trying to flatten my butt in this chair. --- Anyway, every night, I spend some time with my dog. She's home alone a lot, and I sometimes worry that I've brought her into a solitary confinement situation. So, we go out and play, work on discipline and things, and basically bond. Tonight, she spent some time in my lap - a 60 pound lap dog! - as I watched the movie.
I'm thinking a lot about getting another dog. I may choose to foster, or maybe I adopt another. I'm not sure if I have the time, or if it is even a good idea. Thoughts????
So, why do I tell you all of this? Well, I guess I feel bad that I'm not posting like I used to. And, I wanted to tell you why. Also, I wanted to say that come next month I should have more time..... no leaves in December, don't you know. I've not forgotten you all, nor turned my back, just a bit overwhelmed for the moment.
