Just another day in paradise
This is not what I want to see right now but there it is. Good thing it's still at least 5 days out and things change a lot in that amount of time. I just don't like to see it on the front page of the newspaper. After all these years I still don't know what to do about my dogs if I have to evacuate. I have three of them. Lots of hotels accept pets these days but not THREE of them in one room! Molly is a St Bernard and you can't very well kennel her and go to a shelter, unless the kennel is on wheels and even at that it wouldn't fit in my van. Not that I would stay in a shelter anyway after what I've seen happen to them. So here I am again, hoping that if it does come this way, it won't be a major storm. The tracking map is on the wall and we'll keep watch just in case.
I cleaned Ethan's food prints off of the kitchen windows today. They've been in Vegas for three weeks now, you'd think I would have done it sooner. My house looks too clean and unused now. I should have left the food prints. I miss stepping on his matchbox cars in the morning. I miss my 'Wiggles' workout with him and I almost miss putting all of the books back on the shelves in the library every day. On the bright side, I now have room to finish fixing the house so I can put it up for sale and move away from these damn hurricanes.
