I really, really need a break. I haven't had a night away from them since November, and only maybe 6 days away from them in over a year. I did not intend to be a single dog owner, and while I love them SO SO much, I am fed up right now. I am tired of having to work my entire schedule around them. I'm tired of cleaning up poop, and keeping them from eating the neighbor dog's poop, and for whatever reason, they are now peeing inside every week or 2 while I'm at work. I came home and one of them had peed on my yoga mat- which I was planning to use for yoga tonight- which also got on my rug. (no, they been seen by the vet, and there is nothing wrong with them).
I'm tired of all the laundry, and the dog hair, the muddy footprints on rainy days, and them wanting to be on top of me all the time. I LOVE my solo Saturday runs, because I'm not constantly directing the girls to leave it, heel, sit, leave the squirrels alone, stopping to smell. I've tripped over them and hurt my calf and now I'm having trouble with my runs and even my walks because of the pain.
I'm tired of being finally strapped because of my stupid divorce and XH and can't afford to send them to daycare, and the daycare that I really liked is 40 miles away by my old house. I'm sad that I don't have anyone that I can leave them with for a night. I'm SO tired of waking up so early every single morning.
This is mostly just a vent. I love my dogs, and I would never, ever do anything to hurt or neglect either of them, but honestly, they make me want to cry right now. Can I send them to one of you for a day or two?
