Welcome to 2017 !

I know it has been a very long time since I have posted anything.
It has been some amazing years, lots of personal and business growth.

Both of my girls have gown, youngest has graduated from High School and the oldest received a Bachelors Degree.

Went on a week long Cruise to the Caribbean in August. That was an exciting adventure.

I’m just starring at this screen trying to think of something to write about, I’m not really good at this kinda thing ..

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday, and welcome to 2017!8160886


Big Girls Don’t Cry

Now that the weekend has come to an end, and the day is silent. I’ve had time to absorb the last few weeks.

It’s a bit scary to admit you’re a big girl now and that at some point you need to make adult decisions. Since my girls are older and on the go more,  I’m sitting and wondering what is now in my future.

In October I finally made the jump to register for my own business. But I just stopped there. Tho I had so many thoughts and ‘I need to do this ..’ I just never put them into action.

In January I finally said ‘what is it that I’m waiting for?’ So here I am, with the wonderful help from my family and friends. I am officially debuting my New Pet Sitting business.

I always thought that I would just be doing what I’ve always felt comfortable doing. Enjoying playing with other peoples pets all day long. Never thought I’d call myself a business owner. Sounds grown up, doesn’t it?

In the next few weeks I’ll be focusing on the business part of running a company. So, look forward to reading a blog or two of me crying in frustration…

Until then, I would like to thank those that took the time to help me get to where I am now.

Groundhog’s Day

After my head hit the pillow last night, I don’t remember much. Waking up this morning listening to my girls getting ready for school, lying next to my husband, I’m wondering if today will be like any other day.

My husband decided to stay home from work and surprise me with an early Valentine’s Day gift! So out we go, to Home Depot. I know, romantics, but when you have been together as long as we have, you’re looking for the practical items.

I can’t complain, it’s something I’ve wanted for a long time. Being a pet sitter, we have a dog and we board dogs in our home, I’m getting a storm door with a doggy door!

Ok, roll your eyes, but in Texas, we just don’t have critters, we have big critters, and like today, on Groundhog’s Day, it’s 70* and sunny. So we leave our door open. Guess what comes in besides the dog and kids? Yep, critters.

After installing the storm door we help our dog test it out. She’s not so sure about it. But she’s smart. And she’ll love it. Many hours later, she is still trying to figure it out.

Well, today was not all that different than any other day, but unlike that show Ground Hog Day starring Bill Murray, I will get up tomorrow and it’ll be new, with new adventures.

Nanny D’s Random Thoughts

Welcome to Nanny D’s Blog!

After many years of pet sitting, I have quite a few stories to tell. Some are fun, and some are just plain out of this world. I can’t wait to get started and share some of them with you!

At some point I am going to gather all of my thoughts, and tell stories of those amazing pets I take care of. But for now, I am trying to navigate my way around here.

So please come back often, and see what new treats I will have set up for you! You never know, something you might read, will be worth sharing!
