Tired: this word sums up exactly how Daisy and I feel, except that we are not tired for the same reasons.
I started work this week so I have been gone from 7-5 due to orientation. While I have not gotten into the actual nursing part of my job, sitting in a classroom trying to absorb details about what my new job will be like is extremely exhausting. I am a creature of habit and any time I am faced with change (even if I have been anticipating and looking forward to it) my body responds by going into shut down mode. This means that I get extremely tired and want to sleep all the time. I knew this would happen when I started work because of the change of routine, but I am currently experiencing the effects of this.
Daisy is tired of staying in her kennel for extended amounts of time during the day. For a dog that is used to being in her kennel only a few daylight hours at a time, mommy's new work schedule is just as trying on her as it is on me. When I get home at night she has TONS of pent up energy and an appetite for attention. So while I want to come home and veg out, she is raring to go!
I know that things will settle down in a few weeks and we will get into our new routine. I won't have to work every day of the week so my dog won't be so spastic...but I can't wait for those days to get here.
What a depressing post! When I have time to gather my thoughts and put my life back in order this weekend I'll post about more interesting and entertaining facts of life :)
