I played hooky.
Yep, I skipped town for 24 hours.
I love what I do, but it is a 24/7 occupation. Sometimes I just need a break. I know, I have a “break” once a week on my rest day. But even though I take a break from the business aspect of the dogs, there’s still the day to day interaction, feeding, cleaning etc. That never stops.
Hubby helps when he can but he is always busy with everything else on the farm too (mowing, using the brush hog to clear excess brush before fire season, maintaining the vehicles, human house and dog house repairs, mending fences, getting in firewood for winter and hay season starts soon too!) Yep, he’s busy too. He usually takes his “man breaks” in the summer when he goes backpacking with our kids.
I hadn’t gotten to hang out with my bestie (who lives an hour+ away) for a while. So I sneaked off to her house so we could have some girl time and I could “forget” my responsibilities for bit. We didn’t do anything that most people would consider exciting. But hanging out with a great friend always has benefits. We watched the goats play and the young chickens scratch around the yard, oohed and aahed over her cute garden, ate pizza and ice cream (don’t judge me :P) tried to watch a couple movies (we had to turn them both off they were so bad….) and just relaxed.
And on the way home I stopped in town to do some fun shopping.
Now I’m back home cuddling with puppies again and recharged!
Looks like this guy might need a vacation though. 😉 hehe
