Today I show you my shame

OMG, have mercy on me. I decided to come clean and show you my shame, the reason for sleepless nights, among other things. Almost 3 months ago we bought a property with a little shop, a workshop for my husband and a little house that needed so much improvement in the esthetics. We went head on. We changed pretty much everything and I knew I didn't want to move into a project home. We owned another home in Killeen and we decided to keep it since trying to be sellers was going to be too much. Then I started the process from moving out of my old building. I went from over 3ooo sf to only 1200. We trash, clean, sold , gave away like madmen. I moved the inventory I wanted to keep into the new building, the main purpose to get it out of the old location. This is how my shop looks today. I'm going mad, last week I spend the whole week painting, about 30 pieces. The question now is where I'm going to put it all. I have a mental block, I'm in a funk and I don't know how to get out of it.








 Ok, part 2 of the mess. Remember him. This is Juju and he has grown fast. Problem is that he is not potty trained and for a month now have used my floors as a gigantic toilet. I have used a hole gallon of clorox within a week. Pooh everywhere. So, he is in jail until he get it. I have to get up in the cold, odd hours, too much time that I don't necessarily have but that I want to invest in him since he got my heart already. He is just a spoiled baby. I said shame in the mama that does not know what she is doing. So I google info on how to train and that is what I'm doing. Fun, ah?.

                                                            Juju and my mom's Peluche

  His favorite thing is to roll in the dirt and dig. I have to bathed him 2 to 3 times a week. I hope his hair won't fall off from so much shampoo.



                                            Have you ever seen a saddest face. Sniff....

                                     As you can see Juju has a big nose, he is so cute.


Soooo, send me a fairy-godmother with a big wand to make it all fall into place. Next step, the loony bin. Blessings , Marta.

Oh I hope things fall into place for you. I know chaos is so hard to deal with. Cute doggie, just get some training!

Juju is a cutie! I remember how hard it is though--and time consuming to train a new puppy! And especially with your whole move and everything. I'm still going through it too--except I don't have a new puppy to train! Hang in there!

He is too too cute! I feel our frustration with the pott training. I have a 14 ear old Pomeranian that occasionally still is not potty trained. At least you have the tile floors!
Your poor shop! I can understand why you are feeling overwhelmed with everything piled in there. You don't know where to start. Can you clear a bare spot and start from there? I hope you have some help. I bet once you get going inspiration with start flowing. I HOPE! Have a beautiful day!

Hi Marta,your puppy is adorable...I have used a crate to house train the last few dogs I have had. You have to keep them in the crate over night and when you are gone. Its hard to do but,they learn it is their bed and they won't want to soil it after a while. As soon as you take the puppy out of the crate carry him straight outdoors to potty...they get the ideal fairly quick most of the time. Hope it works for you. Your shop will come together bit by bit...just look at it in parts and not as one big whole. It is easier to manage that way...I have to do that with everything I do now...just do as much as I am able today and start again the next.
Praying the Lord give you srength to manage the job...blessings,Shelley
