Hmmmm. How do I describe this week. On top of all the other things, I screwed something up badly. I thought I was handling something the right way, but it turns out I didn’t and I don’t think there’s a way to recover the situation. It’s not life threatening like I thought wouldn’t it be a great idea to adopt a tiger and bring it into my apartment, but….it sort of mentally feels like that.

And to catch up on doggate- The owner of the other dog decided to do a little research. You know that adage, don’t ask a question you don’t know the answer to? Well, he asked a bunch of dog owners if his dog was ever aggressive towards their dog. They all answered yes, on multiple occasions. So yeah- the dog is going to wear a muzzle.


I was at my daughter’s school for the last time this week, once for an art history thing, and once for a final volunteer thing. I am grateful that the school has made it possible for me to partake in various events.


Pedicure. I mean really. And a really good cry. My guess is there will be a lot more of that in the near future…

  1. Maybe the situation isn’t as bad as you think and some time will help mend it. Yay on the doggate. So glad he came to his senses. I remember those “lasts” at our daughter’s high school. The first two didn’t affect me much because I knew there were more to come but with the last one I definitely felt something…may have been relief just as much as sadness.

  2. Hopefully your situation is resolved to a more positive outcome than you imagine it might.

    Good news as per the muzzle. Glad he came to his senses.

    A really good cry can be cathartic.

  3. A good cry is healthy. I like to think it helps heal the past too because I may be crying for something I didnt even realize I needed to cry for. Let go. It’s ok. We are all here for you. ❀❀❀❀❀

  4. I wonder if it’s the moon or something extraterrestrial? I did not have a bad week, but it was easy for me to become irritated and I’m usually not so moody – sounds like your week was a lot more challenging. Hope it all gets better very soon. Glad the dog business sorted itself out.

  5. With your difficult situation, if you acted with the best of intentions, that’s the best that can be said. If it didn’t turn out ok, don’t take it so hard. It’ll work out the way it is supposed to. That’s why they say hindsight is 20/20. We would all like a do-over every once in a while.
