and then when it all gets to be too much go and crawl into a honey pot – at least that’s how it works for Pooh Bear (aka Winnie the Pooh). Since I’m trying to steer clear of honey pots and chocolate pots and cookie, cake and chip pots too I’m left with the thinking.
I’ve mostly been thinking about what to do about this darn dog. She really is the nicest dog ever – when she isn’t busy jumping up on people, stealing napkins and food from the dinner table and trying to eat her leash instead of walking on it.
I was home the other day and if she hadn’t been sleeping right at my feet I never would have known she was around except for the occasional hand nudge for a pet. BUT when we do know she is around she is impossible to ignore. When she gets excited she can run over a full grown adult without a second glance. She’s strong and she’s fast and she’s big. I can barely think about giving her away but she really does need some place where she has room to run and roam. Logically I know this would be the best option for everyone - but then my heart gets involved and I just don’t know if I can walk away and never look back. She loves us so much. The kids are ambivalent about her too. I just don’t know what to do. Oh great and here I am crying now because I’m thinking of life without Autumn. I mean really how do you turn your back on your heart???
