MIssed our walk this morning

Saturday, August 27, 2016

Little Daisy is a bit disappointed in her mom - we did not take our walk this morning. I believe my body has been fighting off a cold, at least that's how I've been feeling. Not really sick; just a bit congested with a scratchy throat and an overwhelming need to lie down! Yesterday was the hardest day - I knew something was up when all I wanted to do was eat, anything! I resisted but it wasn't easy.

So when I got up this morning, feeling better but not really myself, and saw that it was every so lightly raining I decided not this morning. Daisy knew something was up when I didn't get dressed right away, but she was still hoping. After about 30 minutes she came and sat down by me with that "isn't it time to put on your shoes & socks?" look in her eye. I considered it for a moment but then it started raining more - and it hasn't stopped.

And to make her even more unhappy, she needs to have another bath today. She's still scratching and I'm afraid that while we have taken care of the majority of the flea problem, something is still bothering her. So I will have to brush her out again this morning and bathe her in a flea shampoo I bought yesterday - she will not be happy about that either. She tolerates the bath but she stands there like I'm torturing her!

I've been finding ways to put it off all morning - guess I'd better just get it done!

    Daisy girl is the BEST walking motivator! She should come and give me those big 'walk me' eyes! Today we just vegged. DH did so much driving I think he exhausted himself out! I volunteered to take my turn but I tend to have a lead foot even with the cruise control...so I think I scare him...lol..hey I just want to GET there..that's why I'm a much better flying candidate. He hates to fly and honestly it has gotten bad...but the driving over 1700 miles has it's challenges also.

    Things will get back on track little by little...I made some astounding realizations this trip and now it's all good. I think he has really realized I'm done with the whole sorry situation with the in-laws.

    Daisy will be happy for her walk tomorrow and I hope you feel better by then. Take lots of Vit C and rest up my friend! emoticon I think this travel takes it out of us much more than we realize...we have been slugs around the house all day! emoticon I had to thaw out meatloaf for meatloaf sandwiches as we have nothing in the house to eat. emoticon

    Dogs are like your own personal trainer. They keep us moving, because they need to and we do too. Get out in the rain its good for their coat and you can get your umbrella. 15 minutes is all a little dog needs, and you'll feel better too. 👍ðŸ
