Better Today Then Yesterday

It's been a week. One week ago we lost Sammy, our boxer. (You can read my way too sad sob story about how much I love him here.) 

The kiddies taking Sammy on a walk a few weeks ago

This has been a   L O N G  week. When you are sad time seems to slow down. I am pleased to report we are all feeling better in our house. It was pretty depressing around here for a few days. Our other 2 dogs wouldn't even play with us, it was pitiful to watch a dog go through the grieving process. Who ever said animals don't have feelings is full of bologna. The kids are doing better. My daughter is like a rock, nothing over emotional ever bugs her, but my son is my sensitive one and this has been hard for him. 

All in all life goes on. The house seems slightly emptier these days but we have to keep chugging away. This Saturday will be my daughters 7th birthday (Wow how time flies!), and then we will be preparing for the 1st day of school shortly after. 

Summer is slowly drifting away. I hope you've had a chance to do something fun with the ones you love. 

au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...

That is so true... When you are sad, time moves painfully slow. And then, you wake up and realize how much time has flown by. It seems a whole year just disappeared in the time between when we lost our baby and when I woke up again... I knew life was flying by without me, yet I was still shocked to come out of my fog and realize how much I had missed in my numbness.

Hoping every day continues to be a better one.

I'm so sorry to hear about Sammy :-(
Our skipper is about 13 years old and we know his time is getting close :-(. I'm glad to hear it's getting better slowly, and that you will have something fun to celebrate with your daughter's birthday :-). The time sure goes fast...I don't want to send them back to school...they just keep getting older!

Take care Lizzie and enjoy summer! :-)

I am so sorry about your doggie. They are such a part of our family...it definitely is a grieving process when you lose a pet. I am glad that each day is healing a little more. Hope the rest of your summer is wonderful.
