As much as I would like to believe otherwise, it's clear that last week's surgery has taken a real toll on me. I'm still easily exhausted and I still feel as if I'm thinking through fog. I'm easily forgetting and overlooking things, which means I'm spending a lot of time double checking stuff.
This is making preparing for the training and dog's arrival into more of a challenge than I'd initially anticipated. As much as I would like to have everything seamlessly set up, it's not going to happen.
But that's life and I just have to keep reminding myself that it's not like I'm slacking off because of an inherent selfishness or character flaw. I'm doing the best I can and the world is just going to have to accept that it's not up to my usual standards.
I will be posting next week about the dog training. Hopefully it all goes well.
