Going back to school is hard.
After a summer of living in "dog walking clothes" and not setting an alarm, it's hard to go to bed at a set time and set an alarm in the morning and have to put on heels. After spending a lot of time on my own or in small groups of friends, being in front of 20+ people and lecturing is exhausting. Having to figure out a schedule that doesn't involve waking up when I want, drinking coffee, walking the dog, and reading is a huge change from the life I've been living for the last 3 months.
I've had a terrible case of "back to school brain" this week! We got halfway to agility class on Tuesday and I realized I'd forgotten my wallet--no post-agility waffle fries for us this week!
I'm not the only one that's been struggling this week. Poor Barley seems to think that I've abandoned her.
Every time I sit down, Barley's on top of me. She has been stuck to me like glue.
|It is hard to prep for class when your dog attaches herself to you.|
Normally, if it's warm in the apartment, Barley sleeps under the bed. She was having none of that on Monday night. It was not the best sleep I've gotten, but doesn't she look peaceful?
Every time I walk into another room, I turn around to see her looking at me with the most concerned look on her face.
Soth, on the other hand, has adjusted well as long as I'm ready to refill his bowl as soon as I get home. He meets me at the door when I get home, gives a little meow, and then runs to his bowl.
Hopefully Barley and I settle into our new routine as nicely as Soth has soon.
