Working like a dog.

Life lately has gotten bizzzzy. For reals busy.
Your response to our new Autumn Honey collection has been amazing.
Thank you!

Emails out my ears.
Orders up to my eyeballs.
To do lists up to my belly button.
Advertising, creating, directing, ordering, mommying, exercising, wife-ing.
School meetings, appointments, functions, band enrollment.
Countless hours have gone into the planning of the Kansas Barn Sale lately.

For someone who's not naturally organized, I sure have had to pull it together recently.

That's not to say everything is falling perfectly into place.
By any means.
Let's not talk about my sty of a house.
Or my overdue library items.
Or my child's lost gym clothes that need to be replaced.
Or the fact that it's been approximately 3.5 weeks since I've grocery shopped.
I'm not entirely sure what we've been eating. Ketchup and saltines?
Everyone seems to be healthy though, so I guess I'm not doing too bad.
Wait... when was my last shower? Shoot. I knew I was forgetting something.
I should do that too.

The point is, I'm working like a dog lately.
And where the heck did that phrase come from??
I don't know.
Because my dogs certainly don't work very hard.

I actually like their kind of work. I could do it all day long.
The sleeping, the eating, the snoring, the drooling, the dreaming, the wiggling my butt.
I could do that.

Now, lest you think I'm complaining, please know that I'm not.
I get it. You and I are on the same journey... this thing we call "life".
It flows and sways. Sometimes it's very manageable.
But other times things feel chaotic and out of control. And I'm teetering on that edge.

Working like a dog is about to put me over the edge.
So if it's a little extra quiet around here for a while, that's why.
I'm busy working. Drooling. Eating. Sleeping.

This made me laugh. Where did that phrase come from? And your comment on mine made me laugh too. I'm not sure what took me so long. It just hit me today... Can anyone say: slow. :)

Not gonna lie when I checked out the new collection I thought the love wins necklace said loves wine and I though of a handful of people I could get it for for Christmas ;)

So nice to know I am not alone in this hectic world! I feel like I am going a bit crazy!!

Abi and I just talked this morning about how we wish we had the lives of our dogs. All that laying around, eating whenever you want, getting a nice back scratch regularly, laying around some more. You get it. We should definitely learn to work like a dog!

Is this your dog? Reminds me of the Pioneer Woman's dog! :) Grocery shopping and laundry are overrated. Showering though is very nice... Please don't work so hard that you collapse someday.
