Another milestone

August 14th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Guess the hard day each month with be the 14th.  Two months ago today I let Lupe go.  I have thought back on that morning a lot lately and some of the reflections have not been good.  The “what if” moments are horrible and doubting decisions while hurtful is a part of grief and healing…hopefully […]

July 7th – 1 month ampuversary*

July 9th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I’ve been trying to thing of witty remarks and cute comments on how to mark what would have been Lupe’s 1 month ampuversary but honestly I can’t.  All I could think of was the asterick that people talked about after Barry Bonds hit his homeruns…the joys of being a baseball fan.  The asterick seems fitting […]

So I had some friends come into town from Albany (NY not GA) this weekend.  My friend Polly has two silky terriers (Francesca & Molly) and she brought them with them.  I was anxious to have dogs in my apartment again but it ended up being amazing.  I put Lupe’s beds away, I wasn’t ready […]
