Today started at 5:30 am. I ate, had coffee, got dressed and went to my pet sitting job. Then I came home fed my bunnies, did two loads of laundry, changed the sheets on the bed, went to Lowes, Target, Harris Teeter and Walgreens. Ate a quick lunch, did more laundry, answered 4 phone calls that took up 2 hours time, answered 6 emails, visited with friend that came by, did invoices, sewed briefly, went back to pet sit, visit with another friend and dropped off sewing orders, made dinner, fed bunnies, back to pet sit because owner's flight was delayed, folded laundry, got big glass of wine, cleaned up office and here I am. I still have to iron clothes for work, take shower, clean bunny poo poo bucket and give the bunnies a carrot. It will be 11:00 pm before I'm done.
I'm tired. I'm exhausted. I want to sleep. In fact today I told David that if I won the lottery the first thing I would do is sleep. Yep sleep. No stinkin alarm clock, no stinkin schedule, no work. Just sleep. Ahhh, yes, sleep. I remember when I was about 20 that sometimes I would sleep a whole Saturday away just because I could. I know many of you can relate to how that feels and wish you could do the same thing. It's fun to think about it and pretend life is like that again. I can't even remember the last time I took a nap. It's been years now. I have several friends that take naps and I envy them that they are able to enjoy something so simple.
I'm caught in the web. Just like the poor grasshopper that got caught by Mr. Icky my garden spider. Mr. Icky kept looking at me while I took his photo. He seemed to be saying "it's mine, all mine, back away from my grasshopper! Mr. Icky sat there happily and sucked the life out of the grasshopper. Hmmm, how many times I feel like this. How many times I talk to other's that feel the same way. What are we doing to ourselves? Why do we allow Mr. Icky to suck the life out of us? How do we change? Have we done it so long we don't know how to change? Caught in the web we are.
This week IGF my cutie grandma making it through a tough time in the hospital. God give her strength. I'm not ready to lose her yet.
