Well, it's been a month since the vet came out and put Ripley down. It hasn't been an easy month. I still have moments of...sadness and tears.
I was able to clean off the side porch and gather up some of her toys. I still haven't been able to go into the closet, into her "den" and clean it out, however. Yesterday I did stop at a thrift store run by an animal rescue and I bought 4 bowls, 1 leash, 2 toys, 3 books (GORGEOUS ONES!) and a pad for the car. We WILL be stopping at humane societies along our way to June Lake for our trip and hubby is searching internet sites. We just haven't found a good match for us yet. Puppies go quickly and we are taking a short vacation soon. I see a lot of older dogs, but we would prefer one about a year old (OUT OF THE PUPPY STAGE!). It would have to be one that gets along with young children (5 grandkids) and cats, so that is quite a tall order. We will know when the dog selects US. And, it has to be a dog that we both agree upon. I'm the one who has always brought home our dogs, so I think it is time for hubby to have a say in this!
I'm trying to eat better and get my body (and mind) back into shape. I've discovered quinoa and it is YUMMY! I'm also eating more broccoli. I run over to Whole Foods and buy a container of the salads I want and I munch on it for a couple of days.
Anyway, that's where things stand.
Thanks for stopping by. No photos. I just haven't had much interest in photos lately.
