Enough Already

Well, if stress and sadness are factors in flare ups then I'm in for a doozy! Last night our son found our sweet little sable shepherd dead in her dog house and this morning, my daughter discovered her turtle dead in his habitat........we've cried enough around here to make a river.

Now we are looking @ two pet funerals in one afternoon and my stomach acid is churning like there's no tomorrow - who knows, at this rate there may not be!

I admit, losing a pet is so hard...two, even harder but dealing with your children and their loss is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.  They are mortified even though they fully understand that what lives dies. It's a double heartbreak for a parent - the loss is hard on you too but then to see your child devastated,'s rough.

So, I guess I just wanted to put it out into the universe that really, "Enough already!" My heart cannot take anymore right now.

Until next time!


  1. I am SO sorry for your loss. I'm a big-time animal lover and when I lost my Happy dog it almost did me in. I can't imagine how you are dealing with your own grief and at the same time trying to console your children. It must be heart-wrenching. Make sure you get lots of sleep and take good care of yourself. I hope you are able to avoid a flare. That's the last thing you need now. My condolences to you and your family.
