Zander's Solution

Zander asked over lunch, "Can't we PLEASE just take Beatrix to Japan?" When I explained the problems; he had a solution.

"We'll take Be and put a note on her. We'll leave her at Cy's, knock on the
door and then run. Bea can't run. The note will say, 'Cy, your family members
are in Japan. Surprise! Please watch our dog.'"

Such a simple solution. I laughed. Then I teared up. But I laughed some more. This is life....a roller coaster of emotions....but very vibrant. ::snort:: There were also questions today about who will fly over for Christmas and who may not. Ugh....somehow those early years when we "knew" the older kids would eventually not be moving with us seemed so very far away. OK - GET READY! HERE IT COMES!!! THE SAPPY MENTAL PAUSAL LADY COMMENT, "It goes so fast. Enjoy these years. Make the kids your priority. You won't regret it." ::grin::

I have photos - but am exhausted. Maybe I'll get lots of photos up tomorrow. Tonight: cuddle, read, sleep....for tomorrow it will all begin again. ::snort::

Choosing Joy!

Zander is quite something. You can't help but enjoy the way his mind works. =)Love the "mental"pausal comment. I have said this on several occasions.
I'm so sad for you all about Bea. I wish we could take her.
Hang in there, D! God WILL get you through all of this.

What a great solution. Zander is so inventive. Gosh I wish it wasn't so far. We would take her in a minute.

I'm not to that point yet, but I know my turn is coming and I'm not looking forward to it....

Have you decided what to do with your beloved family dog, Be, yet?

Is Cy a solution or not really being young and super busy and maybe in a no pets apartment?
