Thoughts to Paws over…

Do you ever have those days, where your get up and go, has got up and left you?  Well today was one of them for me.  I often joke that I am part dog and the other part energizer bunny, but today I felt surprised as when I looked at the clock and realized it was time for the afternoon walks, I found instead of wanting to head towards the door, my mind was begging me to make a detour to the couch and have a nap.  As much as I wanted to curl up in a ball and have a cat nap, I ignored that urge and got suited up and went outside, and am I ever glad I did!  I know darn well, that if I have a power snooze, regardless of how short it is, at three a.m. I am going to be wide awake and pondering what to serve for lunch at my daughter’s baby shower or what I need for groceries that week.  I know that I will lay there willing myself back to sleep, only to finally drift off fifteen minutes before the cat decides it is time for me to get up, and then the whole viscous cycle starts over again with me being tired in the middle of the day.  The great thing about getting out today, I know when my head hits the pillow tonight I will be out like a light.  And when I am that tired, I am less likely to hear the dog and my spouse having a competition of who can make the loudest noises when they breath through their mouth, whilst the cat purrs like a back up singer filling in the gaps.  My get up and go, did get up and leave me, but I was dog powered, I put on the boys leashes, between them and the ice, I was  propelled forward and that was all I needed to get my motor restarted.  Thank goodness for walking partners that don’t let you slack off when you really think you want to.
