Finding Time

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Having a hard time finding time- I will have to create it somehow

Time to fit in a workout with the dog
Time to make dinner while making sure I know where the dog is at all times
Time to do extra activities with the Husband wink wink
Time to Sleep
Time to Clean

Haha only on day 3 with Ham- and my life is changing big time!

He let me walk him about 5 houses this morning- at night the cement is to hot on his paws he wont even try to walk. So I didnt get any kind of walk in- my brother and sister in-law came to meet my lil man and then stayed until 10 and I actually still considered going on a walk but it was dark and scary so I changed my mind-

Tonight I am going to see if my brother will watch him for an hr so I can get a long walk in.

So last night he went right to sleep- It was awesome!! But it was at 10 pm so I was worried he would have to go to the bathroom so I set an alarm for 3 am- then I was just worried he pooped so I woke him up (BIG MISTAKE) then he wanted to play and whinned for 30 min. Then 6am he is barking again so I get up feed him and play take him out walk by 645 he is sleeping again. Wake up Brian to watch the dog so I can get ready- Well that sleepy/crabby husband goes to the couch and sleeps and Ham had an accident so I was not pleased.

He is really doing so good and we love him, but its a huge change having to share my time- and I love CODI TIME.. Hr long walks and I love cleaning and cooking. This new routine will get better but making time is not something I am used to- I have just had it!

And I could walk in the morning, but then my poor lil man would have to be in his kennel again and at night same thing he is kenneled all day and all night so when we are home I feel bad making him go in there more than needed.

So my lunch walks are MANDATORY now which I am pretty good at anyway but now its essential that I at least get my 2.5 miles in at lunch and eat right!

    It certainly can be challenging making time for things when new elements enter the picture and cause major changes in our routines. Sounds like you are working on options and plans to make time for what's important to you.

    Wishing you all the best as you make adjustments and establish routines that work for you! emoticon
