This year we had planned to go to Tennessee to be with my mom's side of the family of which I was looking forward to. However, sudden changes were made and unfortunately we will not be going. I'm pretty sad but will not let it ruin one of my favorite holidays. We will now be going to Tallahassee to spend it with my Dad's side of the family. I'm sure we will have a great time as we will be spending it with my grandparents, 4 aunts and uncles and and 8 little cousins. It will be noisy for sure! Last I heard, my Papa was going to get a hayride to come to the house and pick us up after dinner. =) I'm also very much looking forward to being off work for two days! Whoo hoo!!
Sad news. My parents have come to the conclusion that we are getting rid of our dog whom we've had for nine years, Molly. She has been very sick lately and nothing we do ever seems to help her. We've taken her to numerous Vets who have prescribed her numerous medications. We bathe her constantly, follow all the directions to different treatments and yet her skin still stays very oily, red, itchy, and it causes a terrible smell. I feel so bad for her because she is constantly in pain from it, you can see it in her eyes. I hate it for her. However her condition is worsening and they think it may be something she's allegic to in Florida. We moved to Louisiana for a little while a couple of years ago and she cleared up. I don't know how true that is but whatever. Anyway, a family from Georgia who used to live here and who would occasionally watch Molly when we went out of town have offered to adopt her despite her medical conditions. I know she's sick and maybe she can get help that way but I am selfish and I want to keep her, even if she is sick. We have had her since she was a baby and I love her dearly. Losing a pet is so unbelievably hard. Last night I let her curl up at my feet on the couch and I just cried and cried at the thought of her not being in our house anymore. So very upsetting. I can't take it.
Well now I am a total mess and need to stop before the tears start to flow since I am at work.
