one week to go before I get to meet so many of you. Starting to get excited and nervous! Not one to usually go away for a weekend to spend it with a bunch of people I've never met. ;p Had a bit of an , "OH NO!" moment yesterday with a major glitch that I thought was going to prevent me from coming but we figured it out and all is good again!
As I have posted we are getting a puppy. Good idea? sometimes I think yes, other times....so I have left every weekend open in Sept/Oct knowing that we would have to go to Pa. sometime to meet the puppies and choose the one to be ours. So when do we get the email to come and choose the puppy....Next Saturday. The one weekend that there are plans made! But it has been decided that my husband and C will go and meet the 3 male puppies and choose which one will be ours while I am in D.C. Yes, I am letting my boys go without "adult supervision" to pick the puppy that will be living with us for years to come. But I have faith they will do a good job!
I will get to meet the newest member of our family when we pick him up to bring home right before Halloween. My husband has promised lots of pictures and the breeder was very kind and is giving my husband extra time with the puppies so that he is able to take lots of pics to show me and even be able to make a call to him if needed.
So while I am meeting many of you wonderful ladies the rest of my family will be choosing the newest member of our family! Now the real fun will begin in our house!!
I'll admit I did laugh at the "without adult supervision" comment. Sounds exactly like something I would say! :) For whats it's worth I think that you husband and C getting to go and pick out the puppy together is a wonderful father son bonding moment. Plus when he pee's on the carpet and runs into the stove you can always blame your husband for picking the dumb one. lol. I think a puppy is a wonderful idea. Like I said, Pickles has really brought so much healing into our house after we lost Arianna. Especially for my husband. I stumbled across some videos of him as a puppy a week or so ago and thought of you because I was laughing in the video and it was so strange because I still had that haunted look on my face yet I was truly laughing at the dog. Probably one of the first times I really truly laughed after her death. Now my husband and dog are so deeply bonded I actually worry what is going to happen when Pickles dies. If only they lived forever too.
Can't wait to see you next weekend I am getting so excited!
Looking forward to meeting you! very cool about the new puppy. Safe travels!
How exciting!!! Neat that hubby will get to take pics and spend all the time he needs to pick the perfect puppy. A neighbor friend of mine got one recently and she's totally in love:) Excited and nervous, yes, that's it! A few years ago, I kept thinking what the what am I doing?! I popped an Immodium, met my roommate at the gate, and smiled at the open bar:)
Can't wait to meet you!
