I have been lost in "Puppyland" for the past week and a half!
WOW! I had forgotten how much time a puppy consumes of your life! Even when they are sleeping, you are constantly "on watch" to make sure you SEE when they wake up, so that you can scoot them outside (quickly) to pee! Then, when they are awake... you are watching them like a hawk to make sure that theyaren't doing "puppy-like" things, such as chewing on your grandma's antique table or going potty on your expensive handwoven rug!
My time has not been my own during this time and my daily routine has gone out the window! If you know me well, you know that I do not do well when things are not going as I planned them! (That's that "control" part of me! Ha!) But.... I am slowly trying to find a "new" routine, and a new way of doing things.
My old routine consisted of me having quiet time with God each morning. God and I have a date each morning and we have coffee together. (Well, I'm not sure if HE's drinking coffee... but I am!) Since Chester arrived to our family, my time with God has been few and far between. (I'm sorry God! I really am!) Now, I read my devotions and say my prayers whenever I can find the time.
My old routine consisted of me working out on my Wii Fit Plus at least 30 mins a day. I haven't worked out on my Wii since we got Chester!! When he's sleeping, I am either afraid that I will wake him up, or I will be right in the middle of my exercises and he'll wake up and need to go out. (If you have a Wii Fit, then you know that stopping in the middle of a workout, isn't good.) I am proud to say that I am still getting in 10 miles of riding each week on my bike!
Another thing that I haven't done much of since we got the new puppy, is BLOG! In fact... this is the longest blog that I have written since we got Chester!! (He's sleeping at the moment. Shhhhh!!!) I haven't even had time to READ the blogs that I follow! UGH!
I also have a baby gift that I have been working on making for weeks now, and can't seem to find the time to finish it!! The baby is about to be born, too! Guess, it will be a late baby gift!
There are other things that are not getting done because my routine is so MESSED UP, but these are the things that are the top of the list.
GOTTA' GO!! ~~ Puppy is awake!!
