Ooooof. Things are still so messy right now.
So our first Airbnb guests checked in and checked out. They were great. Really great. We went back home for a night, I threw a little preview party shindig, then the next day, cleaned up again and headed back to Kristian's. We don't plan to be here the whole time. Kristian is a single bachelor, he doesn't necessarily need or want a 6 year old living in his house for an extended period of time. He's seriously been beyond kind taking us in at all. I love that guy. The big problem is jerry. And I totally get why Kristian doesn't want him here. I love that dog because I've had him for 11 years of my life, he's like my OG family...but if I didn't have any pets right now, I wouldn't buy any pets right now. There are too many other things going on, ya know?
But speaking of Jerry... if you follow me on Instagram, you know he got out last night. I felt such guilt. I finally found him by chance this morning. One of those things where everything just aligns to bring him back. Grateful Laura came to help me look for him. Really grateful, if it weren't for her, it would have added hours, days, weeks, who knows how long to find him.
A good reminder to update your dogs tags. He has a chip in him from my Arizona days-- it's not current at all. And I put a cute new collar on him from Guatemala that doesn't have his info on it.
Yeah, I'm pooped. Oh and I'm going to start working out today. (My family can laugh now). Exercise is good for tiredness, right? Haha. Thats what they say. I sure hope so. It's only one session with a personal trainer, if schedules allow, I'd like to keep doing it. I mean, I say that now before I've actually suffered through it though.
I did jump on a scale yesterday and it said I gained 3 pounds. Not sure if it was my jeans or not, but I'm hoping its correct. It means I finally left the double digits. Hoping working out also gains me more weight (muscle). Ya know?
Maybe I should try to take a nap before I go.
Maybe it's the extra tired, over working myself thing, but I'm not feeling super positive about myself right now. Or I have a lot of little doubts popping up. With everything-- friends, social media, whatever. It can be a bit tough always putting yourself out there, not knowing how people will read you or judge you.
For now, I'm also happy not focusing on relationships (outside of friendships). I mean, I want things to be good, but I don't want to think or worry about any of it. Another time, another place. For now I'm working on continuing being the best mom for Marlowe, making sure this Airbnb situation doesn't get messier, and enjoying life in the process.
Alright friends. I'm going to try to lay down for a few minutes to make up for last nights lack of sleep due to doggy escapades.
I hope you're week is going slightly more smooth than mine, haha.
Have a great week, friends!
