So earlier this month I had a really long week. Due to the wildfires in the Pacific Northwest, smoke settled over my little corner of the world and AQI (thats Air Quality Index) became the new buzzword. The AQI at my home went from Very Unhealthy to Hazardous and back for over a week. Which meant "don't go outside." For my dogs that meant "don't go outside unless to potty, then right back inside." So I'm here to tell you that I learned a few things from this experience:
1. I don't like being stuck inside the house
2. My dogs don't like being stuck in the house either.
3. Being stuck in the house with 4 very bored Border Collies is no fun.
4. The whole smoke situation made me stressed out and grumpy.
There seems to be a whole number of things to be stressed out about today. Our current political environment, isolation due to Covid, riots, shootings, natural disasters, the list goes on.
The interesting thing is that many of us...
