I always thought it would be nice to have someone to help me clean my house, but I never did anything about it. But at some point, having that extra house cleaning help became a necessity, rather than something to think about from time to time. When I was told that I had cancer, I had to make a lot of changes in my day to day life so that I could focus on getting better again. Living a stress free life is so important for your health at any time, and even more so when you are ill.
I foster a lot of dogs for a local rescue. So, I needed help with them as well as my own pets. Friends from the rescue stepped in to take in the fosters at their own homes instead of mine. I have outdoor kennels, dog runs and much more set up at my place. So, it is easy for me to take in temporary fosters more than the average person can or has room for.
