I won’t say good night’s sleep, but definitely better thanks to David taking the early out puppy shift (2:00 AM). Yesterday my cumulative lack of sleep had it’s way with me.
And did I mention Finley fell off the dock into the lake (good news; she’s a great swimmer!). By the time I made it to Kaitlyn’s TKD class, I was done for. I think this picture is a good visualization of looking “done for.” 😂
I had a therapy/vent session with Danielle which helped a ton and got me through making dinner and getting into bed early at 9:00 PM with the help of my CBD/melatonin friend.
The hour before bed, I spent emailing with one of Finley’s litter mate moms and googling information to learn more about nosodes and raw diet and parvo. Having a puppy in many ways feels like having a baby again and the weight of being the decision maker for her health choices feels paralyzing at times.
David helps so much in these times by reminding me there is no single correct path forward. We need to do what we think is best, then move forward and stop questioning it. How can guys do this so easily?! I wish I had that gift, but I know he’s right.
There are some (many? all?) things in life that we will never know the outcome if we had taken another path. Second guessing our decisions leads to stress and worry that doesn’t do us any good. The best we can do is educate ourselves best we can, pick a path, move forward, and believe in the best outcome.
I’m feeling better this morning. Gosh how I love mornings. I have a happy, sleeping puppy at my side. I just ordered my Christmas cards. I’m going to do the online Christmas shopping today that I keep saying I’m going to do. And we have co-op today, which is always fun!
I had the girls make their own lunches last night and wondered why I don’t do it every week? I will from now on; it was such a load of of me to have them pick and pack their lunches while I made dinner.
I am hopeful I can finish putting up the Christmas decorations that are currently strewn all over the upstairs hallway. With our new living room set up we had nowhere to put them so on a whim I ordered these two tables last week and they are supposed to arrive today. Fingers crossed that they work!
Are you currently experiencing analysis paralysis with something? How do you handle it?
