What a week this has been around here – how about, for a Three Things on Thursday post, I give you some updates? Hmmm?
Dixie’s final moments were peaceful. Our vet was wonderful and gave us all the time we needed and, at the end, Dixie slipped away laying in the grass in our backyard. There were many tears and heartfelt goodbyes and now the work of grieving her begins. I keep thinking I see her out of the corner of my eye. And last night, for the first time in 14 years, I made a grilled cheese sandwich and didn’t offer her a piece of cheese.
Dale’s surgery was successful but more extensive than the doctor anticipated. His pain has been higher because of that and I spent yesterday administering pain meds, pushing fluids, and working in the kitchen so that he could stretch out on the couch. Let me just say that there is a reason I’m a librarian and not a nurse.
The work on our house is *thisclose* to being completed but we’re still waiting on our windows, including one that’s a special order, and the front door. I’m anxious to have this done but, as Dale pointed out, then we won’t have anything to look forward to so I guess I’m okay with this after all. Or not. Either way it’s not on my time table and that’s just the way it is.
And that’s all the energy I’ve got for this post!
