This weekend has been another whirlwind and I find myself asking if I will be able to have one relaxing day before a 14 pound ball of energy comes in and turns my world upside down, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. We have been remodeling our basement and the room that is downstairs to create my new cozy abode that I will share with Helaine for the next 18 months. That has been a work in progress for a few weeks now and I can finally breathe a sigh of relief as I am almost completely moved in. Unfortunately because of that project, I have put off the task of puppy shopping. That is, until yesterday. I knew I had to get out and get the task done. I have so much I needed before Helaine comes next week! I spent an hour or more meandering through every single dog related aisle of Petco and was pretty proud of my cart load. I’m positive she has more toys than she will ever need, and I’m pretty sure she will choose one as her favorite and leave all the others brand new. That’s usually how it works. But they were just so cute and I haven’t been able to shop for a little female before so I really just went with it.
After getting absolutely everything I will need to get started again, I started to kick myself. I had all of these supplies at one point and instead of saving them, I donated them or gave them away to other raisers thinking I wouldn’t have use for them. I truly didn’t think I would be puppy raising again any time soon, and that same reason is what convinced me to buy a quaint sedan rather than a sporty cross over. You know the saying, if you want to hear God laugh tell Him your plans? Yeah, I’ve been hearing God’s laughter since October.
Sure I’m spending like I’m made of money but this organization and the well-being of my girl is worth it. And besides, I can’t take it with me right so why not offer it to raise up a puppy that will eventually change a life? I really don’t think I’m losing here, and if I keep these spending habits Helaine won’t be losing either. We’re into single digits now. I will meet her in 9 days and counting!
