MHS has been hitting me hard over the past month.
We're going through quite a lot as a family still and so I keep putting off adding another dog thinking that in a few months we'll be more emotionally stable and better able to keep up with the demands of another full time pet which is the rational,logical decision but I can't help but worry about poor little Todders being left all alone all day while I'm working.
I went to work today for the first time since Joe left.
Right now I'm only working once in a while as a fill in for a friend who has an in home daycare but in October she'd like to bring me on full time as a partner..which is perfect for now.
Her home is in our school district and so the kids can ride the bus to and from school and I'll still get to spend time with them everyday.
I've found another Smoothcoat Hav at a rescue about 2 hours from me and I keep fighting the impulse to e-mail them about him.
Todd would be so happy to have a buddy and I would feel better knowing that he's got someone to entertain him during the long days alone...but then I remind myself that we are only three months into this and even if our situation is pretty stable emotionally the kids and I are pretty beat up still.
What to do...what to do???
