I am awake way too early! odie's fault..i let him out to pee at 4am and he inconsiderately dicked around out there forever until I was so freaking irritated, I honestly wanted to kill him and then I was wide awake for the day.
yesterday was tough, I had that queasy freaking headache all day long. I finally packed it in early, came home, took a bunch of stuff and admittedly do feel better today...despite odie and his dicking around. I did buy some tea and milk on my way home and I have so much extra time this morning, I might just have 2 cups of nice hot tea in a row!
tammy was telling me last week that sometimes she longs for the good ole days...when we were smaller, quieter, more peaceful and everyone was on the very same page. lol..I remember those days too and they were far simpler and easier to understand. but I also remember coming home from work and having to rush around cleaning the barn before I put them to bed and bleaching the floors and getting up at 4 to clean the house, refresh all the foods and waters and feed and turn out the few barn guys we had before I could go back off to work the next morning.
we are helping far more animals at a time now for me to ever be able to go back to that. still..i remember back to the very, very first days of saints when I could sit out on the grass as the evening came in, watching the dogs each cheerfully chewing away on their very own bone and thinking, yes, it just cannot get any better than this. in some ways it did and it didn't.
but I did actually have a bit of a clean up committee even back then. when it was finally time to bring everyone into bed, cole and tyra would do the final last rounds and collect up all of the left over bones and hide them!
ahhh...Sheila and mo? remember the days at the old crappy trailer with tyra, tally, cole, bill, copper, lexi, Wilbur, andy, marley, beanie and abe????
lol! I believe it all started to change when phoebe came!
but who'd have thought way back then that we would be here where we are today?
so many good animals behind us...andy and phoebe still with us... and most likely so many more yet to come.
