A Trip to the M.D.

I spent Sunday afternoon in Matt Damon therapy (aka: Bourne Ultimatum). It must've worked, because I managed to go for a 20-minute run last night. It felt good to get out, get moving. I'm a week behind on the marathon plan, but since it has a three-week taper, I'll just cut one and do the rest from the beginning.

Yesterday, Rocky was out on the deck while I mowed the lawn...and talked to him out loud about Dinah. My neighbors must think I'm nuts. In just under six weeks, I've become The Crazy Dog Lady of the trailer park.

Tomorrow, I'm headed to Colorado to spread some of Dinah's ashes with the person who gave her to me. I think it will bring some much-needed closure, but mostly I am looking forward to getting a hug from someone who knows me -- and knew her.

So, I'm still going to be spotty on blogging/commenting...I hope to be back to full power next week.

I have always talked to animals out loud. (Hence the sudden quiet when I found myself without four legged friends.) If my neighbours think I'm nuts, they try not to show it! ;-)

We'll be thinking of you.

Hi Krissy! Say hi to Meg for me and give her a big hug. I know you won't have time to say hi out here but you will be in my thoughts! A really big hug to you!

Ahh nothing like a blood and guts and boom flick to take the woes away

Okay, so it's WAAAAAAY better to be the crazy dog lady than it is to be the crazy cat lady. Everyone knows that. :)

You're doing great, you'll be back in the swing before you know it!

Nothing wrong with being the crazy dog lady if it gets you through. Being with someone who knows you and loves you is pretty important too - I'm all for fresh starts but sometimes you just need to be with a friend!

Crazy dog lady of the trailer park. Huh. Now all you need is a screaming guest spot on "Cops."
