Busy, busy weekend

So much to do and here I sit blogging. Bad, Bad!!!! I may go this afternoon and help set up the animal shelter to get ready for the arriving animals tomorrow. I'm sure tons of things need to be done, set up crates, organize supplies, make sure there are enough cat supplies and dog supplies. I'm sure they need all the help they can get so I may do that.

It's interesting. In my classes we have done the Meyers-Briggs personality assessment a number of times. I always come out as in introvert which surprises most people who know me. But that's because I prefer to be in my head. I enjoy being alone, I get my energy and excitement from my own thoughts. I don't like large parties and the thought of making small talk makes me start to hyperventilate. As a result of this trait I tend to not do things. Something like going to help at this animal rescue gives me the heebie-jeebies only because it's so outside of what I prefer to do. I would much rather sit at home with my animals and read a book.

On the other hand, I love having new experiences and doing things I don't normally do. So this is the first time one of these rescues are being done in Hawaii and it might not happen again while I'm here. I want to help. I want to have the experience and, as a huge animal lover, help these poor creatures out. So this creates conflict in my head. Do I go? Don't I go? I'm sure I'm going to go but I always seem to have to have a little conflict, at least in my head.....

Right now I'm taking my dogs to the dog park to play.
