Last week I was at a horseshow in 100 plus temps working outside for 12 hours a day. That in and of itself is fine. I expected it and I do this voluntarily and enjoy it. But nonetheless its exhausting.
Then to find out we had no A/C at home last Sat, when I was at the point that all I could think of was getting home and sleeping in my own bed. But no, I ended up going from one hotel to another because I refused to go home in 100 plus temps with no A/C. So we got a room at the local La Quinta Inn( dog friendly) until they could come and fix our A/C on Wed.
Reilly was a very good boy at the hotel, but his patience was wearing thin by Wed morning and he was ready to go home.
Home on Wed. Unloading the car, running to the store to stock up on a few essentials till I could do a big shop. Unpacking 2 suitcases, various coolers and other sundry items that hubby and I had taken with us to make life more comfortable.
Over to the neighbors for dinner( Bless Sarah for taking care of that for us). Home to bed. Exhausted. Nightmares, so no good night's sleep for me.
Then Thursday - home, laundry, mow lawn, and off to a late dinner with a friend which had been planned for weeks and has to be squeezed in whenever we both have the time. Home to bed, exhausted, too much water at dinner, up and down to the bathroom all night long
Here it is Friday. And I still have a long laundry list of things to do to get the house ready for guests on Thursday. My mother, her dogs and 2 more people are coming to visit for the weekend.
I must get a pedicure. I MUST get my nasty car cleaned out. I MUST get the water stains from the A/C off the ceiling. I MUST get all the laundry done. I MUST get some rest!
The one bright thing( although I am kind of disappointed since I enjoy it, ) is that the new agility class is starting NEXT week, not this one. So I can either sleep in on Sat( yeah right) or get an early start on all the crap I have to do.
Sorry for all the complaining. Just tired, whiny and feeling overwhelmed right this moment!
