Well, after trying to clean and get some pre-guest cooking done I now have an accurate awareness... Ready? Puppy wrangling aka making sure they potty outside and don't potty inside, keeping their tiny little teeth out of places they don't belong, and cleaning up after fails takes up 37.8% of my time.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
