I've got a couple picked out to visit in the next couple of weeks.

I can't wait. I'm going to start buying a couple of preparation things starting this next week. I'm very very excited.

I'm going to crate at first, since its just me and I want things to be ok at home during the day. I am close enough that I can go home at lunch and spend some time with her/him. I will just come in 15 earlier and stay 15 later so that I can take an hour and a half. At least until they get used to home.

But I've been cleaning and organizing and making sure that I'm feeling calm in my mind before I bring them home.

And I'm feeling ready.

i honestly cannot.

i sew and i always have needles on the floor and lying around and it just wouldn't be a good situation for a doggie.

then, i still have the problem next door - aka Canus Barkalotalous...



my neighbour has the two yappiest German shepherds in the world!

"La, la, la la, la. La, la, la la, lah!"

Was he watching the Smurf's? Perhaps.'
Fifi, this just brought tears to my eyes. I just realized I have nothing with my dad's voice. Five years and I still miss him calling people "sapsuckers" (his substitute for mf's).
(((Juana))) I'm sorry. And how adorable is "sapsuckers" I've heard that one a time or two.

I wish you had something with his voice, but it is a mixed bag of emotions listening to it. Bittersweet.

I wanted to hear my dad call me Snuckette (because I was a sneaky child). He called me that at least once a day, but did not say it one time in any of his many voice mails. Oddly enough, the last msg he left me (on my birthday and around a week before he died) is a 2 minute message of him breathing into the phone. He did not say anything. He was pretty confused at that point. He was just sitting there with the phone to his ear. I need to delete it, but I can't make myself hit the button.

I wish I could remember the dream my dad had, and told me about, on my birthday. It's the strangest thing. We were eating dinner, and he just started talking about it. I remember him saying, "I dreamt about mama last night. I have not dreamed about her in years". After that, it's like I went blank. I got almost light headed, my ears were hot and ringing, I was only hearing every other word of what he was saying, and then he stopped talking. I looked at my mom and mouthed, "is he okay? he's not making any sense". She just shrugged. I don't think she heard him, and between his diabetes and medications, him not making sense was common

That was a moment. It's also when he started calling people and telling them what type of arrangements he wanted when he died.

He knew Fifi. My dad made his own funeral arrangements, picked out his coffin and arranged to pay for it with his life insurance. We didn't have to do anything. That was such a burden lifted, since I had to make the decision to take him off of life support. It would been extremely hard to then turn around and make the decisions about burial.

One my aunts died last week, my uncle died 1 1/2 years ago (both on my mom's side) this all been stirred up again, so please forgive me everyone. I miss my dad.

Nothing to forgive Juana. Not at all, and I am sorry for the loss of your Aunt.

You are right, he did know, just like your dad did. He told my mom to turn his little room (he liked to collect military uniforms and did work on musical instruments) into place to store her canning jars. He told my nephew not to come home from school if anything happened to him (he left 4 days before dad died), and he called most of his friends and let them know his wishes. He didn't want receiving of friends, he just wanted to be cremated and have a simple graveside service. He had been saying he did not expect to make it much longer, for years, but this was different.

I am glad you didn't have to make those decisions right after. That would have been incredibly difficult. Daddy's do seem to think of the stress their family will be under in advance.

(((Hugs))) & love ya.

Why did Belk have to send an email telling me that Born shoes and summer sandals were on sale. I don't need to know this!

I had a good cry reading those posts. My dad has a nickname for me. He's called me it my whole life. Even when I was his secretary. The only time he calls me by my name is when he is unhappy with me. I never thought about how upsetting that will be.

And I generally don't do well talking about death.

Giant hugs. I'm so very sorry for your pain. Thankfully you had great dads to have memories of.

So, I dressed a little better than usual today (my favorite baggy shorts are dirty), and wasn't it odd how many older men spoke to me out of nowhere?

On the other hand, one of them said hello, then silently farted, poisoning the air I then had to stand in line in.
