I was hoping that this day would never come. I've said it before - I wish dogs could live forever.
I'm not doing as well as I thought I was. I've been pretty emotional this entire afternoon. I can't believe that Molly will be gone tomorrow night. I know that some people will think it is weird how attached I am to dogs, particularly Molly, but at this point, I just don't care what anyone else thinks. Molly has been a part of my life for so long and such an important part of it, it is hard to imagine her gone. It makes me so very, very sad.
There are so many changes occurring right now. I'm doing okay dealing with them, but when I stop and think about it all, I get a little overwhelmed (and a little teary). My feelings seem to clash with one another, as with beginnings and endings. I am happy and sad at the same time.
Life is at that point, where you have to look around and assess. And in assessing, you know how difficult it will be. My heart is surely getting a workout.
New Harry Potter
I started the new Harry Potter book. I don't have much time to read it each day, but when I do pick it up, I don't want to put it down.
On a Lucy Note
Yesterday was the first day that she was good all day. There was nothing to pick up at lunch and there was nothing to pick up when I got home from work. She did have an accident in the evening, but it was not her fault. She needs to learn how to bark when she needs to go outside. We're going to teach her that starting today.
Growing Like Weeds
Our front yard was overgrown with weeds, so we got out there and pulled most of them out. We are now back to a mostly dirt front yard. I called the home builders to find out about getting the [promised] landscaping installed. They said that they were not actively doing landscaping, and that homebuyers needed to call them directly and sign the drought waiver. I think that we're willing to do that because our front yard just needs something. If half the sod dies, it's our problem, but hopefully it won't.
Happy Birthday Mom
Happy Birthday to the best mom in the whole universe. I love you!
Growing so fast
She finally worked up the courage to go down the basement stairs yesterday. Yay for my smart Lucy.
Bad Puppy! (but she doesn't know)
Today was the messiest crate clean-up that I have experienced since getting Lucy. What a stinkin' mess. I dry heaved twice. It was everywhere. She doesn't know that it's wrong. But the dumb little girl sat in it. Hey Lucy - sit where the doody isn't!!!
I'm trying not to talk too much about my little puppy. I'm sure that I have annoyed the crap out of everyone around me. I would talk about her all day and night if I could, but I know that no one cares except me. :-)
