4 Barking Buds


4 days till Christmas! So I’ve officially been house sitting for the last 4 weeks and I’ve a week left to go. It’s been insane dog sitting as well! It’s fabulous :) So much me time! I’ve had a schnauzer/terrier for a week, a German short haired pointer for 2 weeks and I’ll have a dachshund for half a week..in addition to my own 2 crazy mutts :)

Do you ever have extreme moments of clarity? I’ve realized 4 things these past few weeks :)

I don’t take care of myself like I should. I’m always so busy working my tush off for everybody that I forget to take care of it. Yesterday, I got off work at 12 and spent the rest of the day blissfully doing whatever I wanted to. I took my client, one 8 month old German short haired pointer, on a run. She was exhausted by the time we got home. After putting her up, I ran some errands, bought some new music to listen to and contemplated cutting my hair all off. It’s a bit long at the moment..comes halfway down my back and I debated bobbing it..but realized that I might be a bit hasty in that decision.

I realized that I am perfectly okay with being single. I rather enjoy that I get to take off and go places.

I realized that chocolate and wine don’t solve my problems…they just make my waistline larger.

I realized that I am 25 years and it’s time to have my own place free from roommates that stress me out. So I met with my realtor yesterday and I’m officially under contract with her for the next 4 months :)

Whew…it’s been a lot of self evaluation the last three weeks :)

So my lovely followers! Are you ready for the holidays? Have all the presents wrapped? Cleaned the chimney for the big guy? Run any cool races?

Welcome to my blog! The place where my brain settles into it's comfy couch to unload some of it's creativity :)

One thought on “4 Barking Buds

  1. 1) don’t cut your hair. Don’t. I did right after college and again when I found out I was pregnant the first time. Both hasty decisions I regret.

    2) Cut out the chocolate and go for the wine ;)

    3) yay for house hunting. When I was single and had no roommates, I learned a lot and loved the freedom. It’s so empowering.

    Merry Christmas fellow runner :)
