I have slowed down and virtually “finished” working for a while. I will miss my clients, thank goodness my gym family is providing me a little continued involvement because they are all so much fun and such great people to work with and be around.
I have slowly been doing a little design work most days. Of course when things slow down and there is more time and space, what do we do – we FILL it!
We have toyed with the idea of dog #3 for a while. I almost adopted a rescue and decided against it because 3 dogs when you are trying to get control of change in your life is nuts.
Of course it’s our wedding anniversary and we decide to go just look at the pup that the person we got our other handful of a pup from. So of course there is one extra in the car ride home. Say hi to Brody (my son named him after Chief Brody from Jaws).
So here we are, prime AARP candidates, 2 years shy of child freedom, with 3 dogs!
Would I change it, nope. He is ADORABLE! SO low-key, so affection and so willing to please! We knew we had to get our other two reigned in so we are working with our amazing dog trainer (https://www.facebook.com/VIPPetServices) who has made such a difference.
So most nights I spend looking down dogs nostrils as they lay all over me on the couch, it takes me about 4 hours a day between individual training, corralling feeding times preventing pee and other accidents.
I have had them upstairs while threading the AVL and listening to This American Life podcast, despite all the wood, strands of yarn and distractions, they are all doing well. What can I say, life is good!
