I have done almost nothing over this four day break, and I needed it more than I knew. I've gotten up early to let the dogs out, and then I went back to bed, sleeping until I woke up and then I've taken several naps. It's all helped me to finally feel rested.
My time has been mostly my own. Since Thursday, I've only left home twice for short periods to do very limited shopping, and to take Gus to the vet to have his wound checked.
Spending time at home is just what I've needed. I enjoy being with people and I enjoy the patients we see in our office, however, as you know, I was just worn out.
Tomorrow I'll go back to work feeling rested and ready to take on the world again.
Today will end with an unexpected and unplanned road trip this afternoon. Stay tuned...
Everyone needs a time out, enjoy it while it lasts.ReplyDelete

I'm an expert at doing nothing.ReplyDelete
Enjoy restful days, and maybe you need to make more of them every so often, I'm sure all the canine family would agree. After all, they know how important it is to lie down, look at the flowers and blue sky and relax with the others. Cheers,Jean.ReplyDelete
Hi there, I'm so glad you got a lot of rest. You work so hard-both at your day job and then at home with all the pups; you are well deserving it.ReplyDelete
Sending you hugs and love.
In modern life, "busy" has become a normal state of being. I believe that there is honor in acknowledging that we need down time, time to do nothing and concentrate on rest and recharging both our bodies and our minds. Sounds to me like this was just what you needed. I'm sure the pups appreciated it, too.ReplyDelete
Theu all have so right ....relaxing is so good !!!...love from me enjoy summer...xxx !ReplyDelete
Glad you have had a rest and I expect the crew were delighted that you were at home with them.ReplyDelete
Todd always looks like he is up for anything that come his way even if it is a good nap. I don't believe idle hands are the devil's work but a way to replenish our inner selves.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by our blog today Kim

Have a blessed week. ♥
i had a stressful job before i retired... face paced. deadlines. the public.ReplyDelete
and i found that taking 4 day breaks all through the year using my annual leave around holiday times ... always made me better able to cope. and rest! actually more than taking a week's vacation. never ever took 2 wks.
can you imagine in france... the way they take a whole month? WOW!
i SO glad you've had a rest dearest heart.
and... what is sweeter than a puppy sleeping with a smile on his face!!!
I hope you had a good rest. I need one badly.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you had a chance to take a break. You deserve it!ReplyDelete
You so deserve some R& R, Kim! We both love Todd's sleeping with a big ole smile on his face! I hope you road trip was fun and relaxing.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you feel revitalized; good! Just take care...ReplyDelete
Sometimes a little rest is the best medicine of all. Can't wait to hear details on the road trip!ReplyDelete
