I stayed home today to clean up, take care of her, and honestly, catch up on some rest. Raising a puppy is a new practice in patience for me. I've definitely been spoiled the past few years because all I had to worry about was going to work and paying my bills. Now with my first mortgage and a new pet, I've had to rearrange my priorities to make sure I'm taking care of everything the best I can. It's weird how you get so used to flying "solo" so adding anything to the mix sort of throws you off kilter.
With that being said, through all the frustration and stinky messes, when she saw me crying this morning and jumped into my lap it made all my pent up frustration and anxiety melt away. I mean, that face . . .
