I think there’s a furry conspiracy afoot. Monday I lost my Internet connection which meant I spent most of the next day out of the house finding a “hot spot” to get work done. But once I returned home–with a week-in-advance caught up online–the pets ambushed me for EXTRA attention! They celebrated the fact the plastic-box-thingy I stare at nearly 24/7 had been shut down and put away. Even my Blackberry refused to download emails.
Radio silence meant I could concentrate on more important things. Like tossing the Frisbee. And petting the kitty.
How often do we bemoan having so little “free time” to spend doing what we truly want to do? And then when technology failure actually “gifts” us with a forced vacation, we gnash our teeth with frustration and can’t even enjoy the change of pace.
Well enough already. Yesterday at Panera Bread I published a puppy article about rabies risk and blogged about it. And then uploaded and scheduled two more puppies articles and blogs, plus THIS blog and two more future ones. I am sooooo done. Therefore, if the blogs over the next several days seem a weee bit short–well, that’s because~~~
I’m tossing a Frisbee for the Magical-Dawg, or running the hose for him, or rambling the 13 acres while he sniffs out adventures, or playing chase-the-feather with Seren-Kitty, or playing my piano/cello/singing or even READING for recreation for a change.
How do you deal with forced vacation? If you didn’t have deadlines, what would you do RIGHT THIS MINUTE? Please share…and you’ll be ready the next time the Internet or some other karma deals you an unexpected gift of free time.
I love hearing from you, so please share comments and questions. Do you have an ASK AMY question you’d like answered? Do you have a new kitten and need answers?
