Leaving in the Morning for St. John
We're hoping the hurricanes stay away and we have a great week.
We took this same trip same time last year and my beloved Yorkie, Tucker died while we were away. It was a total surprise, as far as we knew he was in perfect health. It was so sad to come home to a house without him.
Illogically, I'm feeling a bit nervous about leaving the dogs. Yesterday I felt like crying all day...in fact DID cry a lot of the day. It didn't occur to me until tonight that this might be why. It's crazy, but I think the body remembers even when we don't. I've been doing lots of talking to myself. Hedy was kind enough to let me leave the pet sitter her numbers. I've left contact numbers, vet numbers and lots of instructions. My pet sitter is a doll. She works during the day, but comes here during lunch and right after work and stays the night. Still, it's so hard to leave my furry darlings.
Aaahh, but vacations are a necessary and healthy part of our lives, right? St John will be wonderful, it always is...one of my favorite places on earth.
Sending good thoughts and love to you all!
