Normally, I use long weekends to relax and recharge. This time, I did some things that really needed to be done. I mowed the dog’s area after picking up her leftovers. I cleaned out the closet and donated some of mine and J’s clothes. I did some writing. We gave the dog a bath and I cleaned her stinky crate. I paid bills. And I spent some family time. All of this was my way to recharge and although my muscles are sore from bending, lifting, and toting, I feel accomplished!
