I always feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. Life always smacks you in the face when you arrive home, have to unpack, do laundry and back to normal life.
This week is particularly rough because I have two late nights of school conferences but then a 4 day weekend! We are finally feeling better from our colds but still nowhere near 100%.
My moment of inspiration came yesterday. I came home early to take the dogs to the park and our dog Love, who is older than dirt (14) was having a bad arthritis day. This was due to not getting as much exercise when we are gone and maybe missing her daily asprin (Guiness likes to eat her food and get them). She has so much spirit though. She through sheer will power went to the park in deep snow, dragging both back legs. I felt so bad for her but she was not to be left behind. She wanted to go.
And today she was so much better! The exercise and asprin had her feeling and looking like a young pup again. If she can do what she does everyday, then I should, suck it up buttercup!
