Hey guys. All y’all are seriously the best. Seeing your comments coming in throughout the day seriously got me through today. A huge THANK YOU. The blog community is the best.
I am happy to report that I am NOT losing Petrie. While I will not have her living with me for roughly 9 months, I WILL get to have her eventually. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
People have asked if we will still think of Petrie as our dog in 9 months. My answer? YES. No question. I adopted her, she is my baby. Judge all you want. Or don’t judge and understand. That is preferable.
So where is Petrie headed?
Yep, the great state of Texas. My mom has opened her heart and home to let Petrie come and stay with her. (I think she secretly wanted that to happen all along). Even better, we will be hiring a dog walker to come and take her out during the day. Petrie will get so much love with my mom. And…. I will be home for four days over Thanksgiving and eight days over Christmas.
Texas is a cheap airline ticket, so Mike and I will be taking many random adventures to see our pup. Yes, VERY crazy story of getting our animal and having my mom foster her. However, things aren’t always easy. And she will be staying put for awhile- no traumatizing the animal! Needless to say, I feel so relieved and can’t wait to have Petrie in my life permanently. Eek!
So I haven’t had the best appetite lately, I’m sure you can imagine. But here are a few random eats from today.
Lunch was a Veggie Delight sammie from Subway. Some cheddar, light mayo and mustard made an appearance on the sandwich as well. I looove their honey wheat bread.
I had some snacks this afternoon, and obviously breakfast.
When I got home, I tried a (chip?) that Mike’s sister brought us back from Japan.
Ummm… not even sure how I could even start to describe these. They were awful. I am going to have Mike try them and have him tell me what he thought they tasted like. Rotten meat maybe? Lol.
Dinner was random since we still both were uninterested in food a bit (Petrie issue wasn’t resolved at this point). We had baked potatoes with sour cream, cheese and a sprinkle of bacon bits. I also had some steamed broccoli and a few spoonfuls of Kraft Spirals.
And dessert, which for what I have gone through the past few days, I more than deserve dammit!
Don’t worry. I’ll only have one and a bite of Mikes.
Ok, I am off to relax. These past few days have taken it out of me. I am so sorry for being so negative the past few days. I promise I will be my positive self from here on out. Petrie is safe=Jenna being so relieved and happy.
I want to give my mom a huge shout out first though. She is seriously the most amazing mother in the world. She would do anything in the world for my brother and I and has made many sacrifices to do so. Would all mom’s do what she is doing? Absolutely not. Is she judging us on this really stupid yet now hilarious situation we got ourselves into? Absolutely not. She is willing to make sacrifices in her life for both Petrie, Mike and myself. For that, I will never be able to repay her. But I will love her more than anything, let her know how much she means to me and thanks her over and over and over again. She understands me and understands that this animal means the world to me. She is willing to take on a PUPPY. Mom, you are my favorite. I LOVE YOU!
Feel free to give leave a comment about how wonderful your mom is!
