Back in My Own Bed

I'm back from my trip to Minnesota and sooo tired but I just wanted to tell you that I am home.  The dogs were thrilled that I came back.  The cats were both aloof and curious.  The quail didn't care either way.  The pet-sitter did a good job of not only keeping my pets alive, but all of my plants made it too.  She definitely earned her $40 a day.  That's a lot of money in Tucson and hardly any money at all in Southern California.  My sister was telling me that she paid someone $20 a day just to be a back-up pet-sitter for her one dog.  The person didn't even have to do anything, just be on-call in case the other pet-sitter had a change of plans.

Anyway, I am thrilled to have a reliable pet-sitter again.  Maybe this means I can travel more.  I don't really like to travel though.  The plane trips are stressful but I can't beat the speed.  How else can I wake up in Minneapolis and be working in Tucson in the afternoon.  It is almost 9pm, that's 11pm in Minnesota.  No wonder I am so tired.  4 more days until the weekend!

We went to college in Tucson . Where do you live( just general area?) we often think of retiring there in 4 years but not sure we could afford it.

My pet sitter charges $35 a day to watch both dogs. And she is super sweet with them. And patient with me, too, like when I forget that Aug 14-18 is five days, not four. D'oh..

christina, I live on the east side. It's a 25 minute commute to work but it is affordable and safe and no HOA which was important to me.

Well then, big sis, sounds like I got a bargain at $40 for 3 dogs, 5 cats, 3 quail, and watering of the garden!
