Oliver & his helpful epiphany

The other day I was flitting around the house doing my spring cleaning (STILL not done), when my Ipod battery died. I took my earbuds out and plugged it into my laptop to charge...when I heard Oliver whining. So I went to the bay window in Jeff's office; sure enough he was crying about going outside. It doesn't matter if it's rain or shine, he ALWAYS wants to be outside...digging in the mulch, laying to the sunny spots, exploring the overgrown bushes by the chicken coop. I realized then; watching him cry about going outside, that I understood how he felt. Cooped up in the house, feeling like there is so much more the smell, explore, roll around in...well for him maybe, but you get the idea! :) I have been living in this angry, cloudy little funk the last 6 weeks...and I don't want to be like that anymore.
I still have my ideas about what is acceptable behavior and not...but why be so angry anymore. I have a second chance to live my life the way I want!
I've got plenty of things that I want to accomplish before I "settle down"...I just need to focus on those goals! Life will work itself out!
