🥰🐕When we first got Brady as a wee pup, I was only working part time bc my hubby pulled the financial weight for our family.
My job, as a hairstylist💇🏽♀️, was pretty flexible and so when I did need to go in, I could come home a couple hours later and check on him.
Just a few months later, my husband loses his hours, and our income, out of the blue. (He's been with them for almost 20 years now). I had to go back to work full-time(7days/week), I even worked as a receptionist there PLUS picked up Sundays and evenings as a waitress. 💁🏼♀️ We were never home but our new puppy was...it was extremely sad.
We even built a huge puppy crate...and I mean HUGE!! LOL. That made us feel a little better but not much. 😢
We brought him to doggy daycare but that is not cheap & it was 22 min away each way.
I was so stressed & got depressed from: •training a new puppy •puppy costs
•a house to take care of
•groceries, cooking, bills
•a stressed husband
•worrying abt everything😩
I started drinking just to deal with the overwhelm of it all. It only helped in the moment and didn't solve anything.
Between the stress and no sleep, I got really depressed.
I even wanted to give my puppy away. 😭
It was all too much💔 🙏🏼But then....I found an online opportunity that said I could work from home and make money.
I was desperate. I looked at the girl's profile and thought eff it, if she can do it so can I. 🤭
So I just went for it. If it didn't work out, oh well it was $35 and I'm sure I'd learn something from it anyway.
I told myself I'd give it 6 months bc I knew these things take time.
So what happened? Shoooot, if you don't know, check out my profile. 👩🏼💻💕⭐️ As a brand new person in the business. I WORKED this business instead of watching TV and scrolling fb. 💯I did what needed to be done. I fricken went for it.
I didn't make excuses. I made effort.
And now, I'm home with my spoiled ass dog everyday. 🤣
We snuggle in bed, we play in the snow, and we go for rides at least twice a day to the school 😘
But if I never would have taken action, it's absolutely TERRIFYING to think how different my life would be
