European volcanic ash impacts Watertown resident

Haha, I thought I would write my blog post’s title as a typical newspaper headline.

So, yeah, I have been pretty affected by the volcanic ash in Europe. I mean, not as much as some people, but certainly in my own way.

My sister is visiting Ireland with her boyfriend, and is probably stuck there until Saturday. That’s a week later than she had planned on coming home.

This delay means I am stuck in Natick, Mass. for another week, dog sitting. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jack (her chihuahua), and love having a place to myself (normally I have roommates, as nice as they are). But gosh there are way too many strip malls around here. And watching a dog is hard work!

The toughest part, I would say, is having to take out the dog first thing in the morning. Because my sister lives on the fifth floor of an apartment complex, I must go down the elevator, down the hallway, and out to some green space on the side of the building.

It doesn’t take too much time to get there, but it’s so tough first thing in the morning. Ideally, when I get up the first thing I do is make my breakfast and eat it. It puts me in such a better mood.

But when I have to walk the dog first, that also involves getting dressed before eating. Call me selfish, but all this pre-breakfast work is tough!

Other than that I really shouldn’t complain. But I will be ready to go back to Watertown when the ash has subsided.

    I like the typical newspaper headline. BTW, since you left (or was it before?) I’ve become a freak about Iceland. Jane and I went there and loved it. We’ve been in roughly in the area of that volcano.

    That’s awesome you got to go to Iceland:-). I’d love to go there someday. Do you recommend any particular regions of Iceland to visit? Crazy you were near the volcano!


  3. […] sitting again Let’s hope my sister doesn’t get stuck in another land this time. This time she’s in Puerto Rico, soaking in the 80-degree weather sans humidity. So […]
