So I'm supposed to be going on vacation soon, for a week. I'm having so much anxiety over leaving my animals and my little garden it's incredible. I can't afford to have a pet sitter come over for an entire week because my dogs are used to going outside about 5 times a day and pet sitters charge per visit. Not to mention the extra charge to take care of my chickens too. So I've arranged to have a 19 year old teenager move into my house for the week. I completely trust her as far as being here goes. My anxiety is over the maturity level of 19 year olds these days. Will she get up and take my dogs out at 8:00 in the morning like they're used to? Will she remember to give my dog his medicine every 12 hours? Will she give my chickens fresh water and food every morning? Will she remember to water my straw bale garden every evening? Will she pick anything that needs picking every day? Will she remember to water the plants on my porch? And the thoughts continue. Ugh, I really, really just want to stay home.
