Stretched too thin.

Today, I feel as if I’m being stretched to thin. I think it’s the time of the year but I don’t feel up to coping with my life today. Not in a suicidal way I can assure you, just – if I had the choice, I’d spend the day in my bed and not get out. I haven’t had a day to myself in months, a day in which I could choose what I wanted to do and not be slave to anybody else’s wishes. Or, my own conscience for that matter. I wanted to spend the day writing (something I haven’t done since NaNoWriMo) and just take it easy but, I have to work tonight and now my morning will be taken by my sausage dog who seems to have a bladder infection. She’s very dear to me, and I don’t want to take the chance to ‘wait it out’. The problem is that this is silly season so most of the vets are booked full or not in office. When I’m done with this I have to go and take her so that I can sit at a vet and wait for an appointment. The only consolation that I have is that I’ll be able to take my book along. I might not be able to write but at least I can read then.

Sigh, lol.

I’m not fond of my life at the moment. I’d give up my favourite pair of shoes for a normal job.
And, I’m really worried about my dog.

    I hope your dog does well. *hugs* I’m sure it’ll be nothing to worry about, and that your sausage dog will recover completely and thrive. ^^

    Anyways, yeah, life is busy around this time of year, isn’t it? But at least everything should probably calm down after the New Year. I’ll be glad not to be busy, too, although admittedly, you have a lot more to do than I.

    Good luck getting a day to yourself to write, though! 🙂

      Thank you. 🙂 She DOES have a bladder infection, but luckily I caugh it fast so the worst thing that has to happen now is her to take her medication.
      I don’t like this time of the year I have to admit. Christmas is very stressful. But, i take comfort in the fact that it will improve in January. I can’t believe it’s almost 2010. Wasn’t the milenium yesterday?
      Have a great day you, *returns hug*

        That’s wonderful! So as long as she takes that with no problem, she’ll be fine. ^^ It’s always worrying when a pet gets sick. I’ve never been one for dogs or horses, but I have a cat that I love dearly. He almost died once, and, gee, I was a real mess… but he’s fine and happy now, which is what matters. 🙂

        I like Christmas Day, when everyone just gets to eat some good food [in our family we make it a point not to force food on people, and so Christmas lunch is always self-serve] and unwrap presents and all of that. I can feel the stress going away. 😉 Gee, I was like, six when the millennium passed. It feels a long time away, for me.
        You too. ^^ *hugs* Merry Christmas.

    Chin up, sister. Chin up. This time period is usually very crappy in general and likes sharing the misery.

    Byt vas. Kick ass. There’s something in this that you’ll look back on and either remember as wisdom, laugh at, of smirk at the stupidity that life can sometimes hand your way.

    Enjoy the journey, regardless of the muddy parts.

      You! *Bowls over in an internet hug*
      I’ve been meaning to go to YIM but haven’t had the time for a decent chat.
      I hope live is treating you well?
      Thank you! 🙂 I’m sure I’m learning something from this, I just wish that school will be dismissed in a while.
