How did Lily do with you being away and your return to your home?

I'm still assessing her re-entry to our home, as we are at less than 48 hours......she didn't eat yesterday, has eaten today, otherwise seems good.

She doesn't have that kind of sad and bewildered look on her face that she did last time, I have noticed.....so that is an improvement and may reflect an improved re entry, overall.

My son said she didn't eat as well as she usually does, this 12 days they had her. Not at all for a couple of days, then not her entire 2 1/4 cups on any day. Has to be a bit confusing for her, although she loves them and they her.

She has slept all night at my feet in my bed these past two nights....not her usual back and forth between the couch or under the bed.

I'm sure she is less comfortable at the foot of the bed, as not as much room for her to stretch out....I know that I certainly am less comfortable. ....but she needs to be close, and that is okay.

I would have to say, at this point, that she seems to be doing better, Bud, so the pack walk has likely helped. . I will do that each time, now.

Lily's re-entry seems to be going better than mine.

It is 7 hours later in Athens than here, and my sleep cycle has not yet switched over. Booooo.

I couldn't stay awake thru the evening news last night, now have been wide awake since 3am. I had something I needed to do, so I just got up and did it.

Grabbed the big flashlight that Doug always kept by his side of the bed....where it still sits....to look for something in a closet early this morning.....my first, instantaneous, thought being this still has the last batteries in it that he put in there.

It's been a year and a half, and he is still with me almost all of the time.

Good in many ways, not so good in others.....those gut wrenching pangs of sadness and loss come very quickly and without warning. I miss him, and miss sharing life with him.

Life.


Maggie

I can imagine England, Lili.

If you click on the "new posts" tab, Lili, that will take you thru any posts since you were last on the Forums.

Fatigue got the best of me yesterday, tears and all, but today is another day.

Going to ready to rally today....mix some cookie dough to bake in the am, gather clothing and supplies, tidy the Interstate, etc....so that tomorrow we can go.

Re-entry .. funny ..
if only non humans could talk ..
Muffin went DooLally when we picked him up from the Parrot Hotel ..
he was so excited .. even now .. when we take him out in the car
he goes through his repertoire as if to say .. don't take me back ..
Id like tiny designer dog .. small enough to carry and big enough to not step on .. but scared to take on responsibility after crumpet died .. Hans and I are pleased you returned safely .. Greece and back from USA is no easy matter x

Thanks, Lili.

If I am going to do Spain and Italy at some point, going to have to figure a way to cut down the travel time home. It wears on a person.

But, I don't need to think about that right now. Getting my sleep schedule back to normal is enough of a goal for now.

It was a lovely trip....beautiful country, kind and friendly people.

Waiting now on my box to arrive.....need to figure out where to enter that tracking number.

TinCrumpet, because you participate in Maggie's thread it should also be in your subscribed tab.

You can hit subscribed and follow a thread without posting to it.

You can respond or participate in a thread and it automatically becomes something you subscribed to.

You can respond to a thread and then unsubscribe if you don't wish for it go be one of your regularly subscribed threads.

Hope that helps, sorry for being a busy body, should have pm'd this instead of detouring Maggie's thread.

Back to the regular program.

You're so funny.

She would have to be sedated and travel in the cargo hold.....I would never do that to her.

I really, really, missed her, tho. She is now my near constant companion, I talk to her and love on her......no one for give and take of affection, and it was hard.

She is such a sweet dog, and I love her lots.

Hi Gail!

I have cookie dough mixed and in the frig to bake in the am....Molasses Crinkles...a favorite. And, with molasses in them, so some positive nutritive value.

Also have the dry ingredients together to try a pumpkin yeast bread recipe I came across. Has chopped nuts in it, none of the usual spices, the pumpkin and a little buttermilk provide the liquid for the loaf. Sounds good, and pumpkin is so good for you.....the rally group will eat it up, I am sure.

I'll post the recipe if it's good.

It is nearly 7 pm, and I am not yet falling asleep.


Maggie
