My life has been turned upside down… or maybe it is finally right side up!! LOL!!
I am so sorry that my posts here are spaced out more than they ever have been… PLEASE have some patience with me. You are all so very important to me, but having Lucy in our lives has taken every spare minute I used to have! 😉
Sorry this picture is a bit blurry… it was taken with my cell phone camera… This is Lucy sleeping with her Ducky… LOL! She is so cute!! Her nap time is my only free time right now, and once I have picked up her toys, cleaned the carpet ( potty training is SO much fun! LOL!), gone to the bathroom, and fed myself – she is up and ready to go again! So that is the reason I haven’t had time to post much this past week. 😉
For those who don’t know, we got the call last Friday afternoon that Lucy was healthy, and ready to go! She went to the vet, got the all clear, and had her vaccinations. She weighed in at a whole .68kg!! What a BIG GIRL SHE IS!! 😉
Tim and I WERE SOOO excited, and Friday was a VERY long day – waiting to go get our little girl. We picked her up late evening, and it has been a roller coaster ever since… and we couldn’t be happier!
The weekend was a blur of late night feedings, crying in her kennel, LOTS of cuddles and kisses, and cleaning the carpet every 20 minutes. 😉 All in all though, she has adjusted to her new home incredibly well, and has become the center of our family. It makes me tear up to see my little dude with his new baby ‘sister’. He is such a LOVING protector of our little pup – sometimes he can forget her size, and I have to remind him to be careful, but other than that his life now revolves around Lucy. Isn’t it a rite of passage for a boy to have a dog? If that is true, my little dude has a changed spirit about him. He sits and watches her sleep for hours… LOL and the moment she twitches he screams out “Can I pick HER UP??? MOM SHE’S AWAKE!!!”… he runs her around the living room, giggling without boundaries, holds her like a baby while she sleeps, and even cleans up her “accidents” on the carpet…. He couldn’t be a better big brother.. and it makes me proud!!
While I type, my honey is out with Lu-Lu Bell to give me a bit of a break. I took the ‘night shift’ with her last night while my honey slept… so he thought he’d take her out this morning, and let me sleep and get caught up on ALL my responsibilities that have fallen by the wayside. It is nice to get up and have a coffee before starting my day…
If I sound delirious, it may be from sheer lack of sleep… but I feel delirious…deliriously happy! The bond Lucy has created in our family is tangible – She has perfectly unified what was already there. She has given me the gift of looking and loving outside of my pain… she makes me laugh… she loves me in the sweetest most unconditional way… and I don’t remember life without her now…Life from this moment is going to be a BIG adventure…
