Long hours in deep freeze
I honestly think that I am losing my mind from lack of "me" time. On the verge of madness! Lets start with the concept of waking up on a Saturday at 6am just like any other day and seeing that the temperature is 16 degrees and the wind chill is -2 degrees. It is a SLIGHTLY slower day, but still super cold for trekking around. I took a last minute dog situation (they forgot to get a hold of me ahead of time, but they are good regular clients, so of course I said yes) which made for 3 morning dog walks in the cold cold cold city. That is not to mention the 5 cat visits. At the last cat which is only a block from my house, I could not get the bottom lock to work. I stood outside gloveless for 15 minutes trying to get into this house and could NOT get the lock to turn. I had to knock on the neighbors door who I knew had a set of keys and she got in with her set (Thank god! She is my hero of the day!) I get in and there is poop all over the kitchen (which is no big deal to clean), they eat, I got to the litter, I scoop, and I smack my head on the pipe in the basement when I stood up from the litterbox. At that very moment, I gave up. I was seriously considering going on vacation next week. I was planning on running away to Florida and not telling anyone. I'm tired and cold and frustrated. That being said, I must take control of this " business gone mad" and set up policies, take on another person for help, and enforce the word "No" when necessary.
If anyone needs me, I shall be icing my head.
