It's a little weird today. After over a week of daily (or more!) posts keeping you updated about my poor puppies, it seems a little weird to not have anything to say. I'd like to continue posting regularly, so I'm winging it. But it feels open ended right now. I can't describe it.

First, the puppers. Socks is fantastic. I cannot believe that this is the same dog that was so sick last week. He's eating, pooping, peeing, playing, barking, growling, cuddling and getting into trouble already. I am so glad he had such an easy recovery.

We took Rocky to be cremated Tuesday over my lunch hour. This was something that we both felt strongly about. It is important to us to be able to bring him home again, and take him with us wherever life leads. The process takes up to 4 business days. I hope we get him back before this weekend. My dad is an artist, and he is going to make an urn for his ashes. I miss my dog. And I still don't want to talk about it.

Now me. I am not doing as well. I find myself losing patience with Scott, and being shorter with him than normal. This isn't fair, as I know he is hurting just like me. But men are so much less emotional; it's easy for me to forget his pain. I am trying, but this is just a rough time for both of us. Yesterday was Asher’s birthday. Asher passed 4 years ago from cancer. It’s even harder for me to see Debi in the ICU at this time of year, and if she isn't home in November, it will be even worse. Happy Birthday Asher! We love you!

And the meatball. It is really surreal to me that I am actually 9 weeks pregnant. I have to admit that there has been a little part of me that hasn't accepted that this is real, and happening. I really am pregnant. And it seems as though I might stay that way for the next seven months or so. In just over three more weeks, I will be in the second trimester. I can't believe it. Pin It

you've been being short with me? lol, aparently you've been over-critical of yourself as well.
