MY DAY: Teaching old dogs

As human beings, it is so easy for us to become conditioned to societal demands. Any attempt to undo what is considered normal by society standards often requires miraculous give-and-take as we undergo change. However, sometimes old dogs can learn new tricks.

Now that Sunday is technically the first day of my work week, Wednesday and Thursday have become my Thursday and Friday. I’ve come to enjoy having an alternative schedule for the week. Sunday afternoons and evenings were always my least favorite day because the weekend was winding down. Now, Sundays are revving up the new week.

One thing I’ve been trying to do with the start of this new schedule is to accomplish a little bit of house or yard work each day rather than allowing it to pile up to the point it consumes an entire day or at least a large part of a day.

And, I’ve stuck to my guns about not doing any house or yard work on my days off. Those days have become strictly my own days for doing what ever I please.

An old dog can be taught a new trick, and love it.
