The last time I got into the car I was heading to a particular horse rescue farm where I volunteer.  It is the one and only place I can go and completely let the rest of the world go for awhile.  I think we all need a place like that.  I may be a 40+ woman with only average strength but the horses don't mind.  I love going there and always feel better when I leave than when I came even if I did just spend 2 hours shoveling horse pooo.  They are also honest creatures.  If they don't like me they let me know it and if they love me they never bite me unlike my teenage children!  Come to think of it I believe I will let the laundry pile up and I'll head there again today.

I'm a 40+ woman as well, and totally agree with you that we all need a place to go just to let the world go.

That's why I walk dogs for a living, I'm a pet nanny, it's the funnest job I have ever had, and it's a happy job as well. I never feel like, do I have to go to work today?
