Open Mouth Insert Foot

I think I’ve said it 100000000000 times before.  I am a “fixer”.  You can’t do it?  That’s ok, I’ve got it, or here let me help.

Maybe bend over so I can kick you in the ass?!?!?

Stop doing that Grace!!!!!!!

This weeks “I’ve got this” involves offering to keep a grieving family’s dog for them while they work on funeral arrangements and finding a new place to live.

I thought, oh never mind what I thought…. The moral of the story is “It’s too much”.

While I’m glad I was able to help “a little”, I need to take care of myself and my animals (2 dogs and 3 cats).  I need to practice some of this “self-love” stuff I keep hearing about.  (Thank you D.G.)  I would seriously pay you to be my therapist, if I didn’t have to spend some much money cleaning up the coffee spilling damages 😛

  1. I’m left thinking..l hope all those fur kiddos get along! I’m sure the people you are helping out appreciate it and it’ll likely be over soon. As a recovering fixer I’m learning to ask myself before any and all decisions…is this loving for/to me. It’s one day at a time. 🙂

  2. One of the hardest parts of adulting is learning to set boundaries. I think, anyway, since I’ve never really gotten the hang of the whole being an adult thing, but it’s really easy to forget that sometimes you have to take care of yourself of you’ll be unable to take care of others.

  3. You my dear just have a big heart and I know sometimes that can bite us in the ass! It is just hard turn it off. I can’t imagine having to clean up the dog poop on top of everything else!! Hell I take care of my two cats that have two litter boxes and boy all they do is pee and poop!!! God help you my dear! You are a great woman and this shows just how loving you are, you know behind your sassy attitude!!

  4. Maybe we can get a group discount if we hire DG as our life coach?! You need to tame your heart, my friend, and put yourself first. Easier said than done, I know, this is what people with big hearts do, say yes, and give of themselves.
