Hooters, Thank You's, Demolition and Life without Lou

I needed a few days to collect myself, not that I'm collected now, but at least I can see out of my eyeballs again. I want to do a BIG thank you to all the people that cried with me, were concerned about me and were there for me when I needed them most: My two moms, Bill, Jenny, Joe, Mario, Brandi and my blog buddies. My moms were there to (literally) pick me up off the floor, Bill (my stepson) called and texted me from school very concerned about me and sad himself, Jenny (my BFF) who talked hours on end with me, Joe (the guy I'm dating) who was incredibly sweet and didn't think I was crazy for loving a dog so much, Mario (best California friend and coworker) who kept trying to make me laugh and calling me to make sure I was still going to Texas with him, Brandi (friend and coworker) who texted me in the middle of the night so I wouldn't be alone and all my beloved blog readers who sent me sweet comments and heartfelt emails. It means A LOT to me that you all care so much. I have had everyone in tears lately - the people at the vet, my mom, my coworkers and even Joe. I think you all are so used to me being the comic relief, that you don't know what to do with snot bubble face.

Okay, moving on...the downstairs is chaos. The kitchen and family room are torn apart for remodel right now so all routine is gone for the moment. No DVR or HD, no cooking and no couch or recliner to sit in. AAHH! My mom and I have been curling up and watching TV in the master bedroom together - kind of a pajama party. And get this...we have to go out for dinner every night right now and when I came home from work yesterday and asked my mom where she wanted to go, she said "Hooters". I said "Hooters? Really?" She said "Yup. Got a coupon!" LOL!!! So yes, we went to Hooters for dinner. When we got there she exclaimed "Well good God, I've got bigger hooters than her!" O.M.G. :-D It's going to be gorgeous and in the 80's this weekend so I'm going to catch up on my poolside lounging - wanna be tan for Texas.

I'm so sorry about Louie. When I had to put Jessy down in Feb, I cried for days. It was a miserable, horrible experience. With you and I, our dogs have been our companions on some bumpy roads and they helped us make it through. Losing a best friend isn't easy. Warm thoughts and hugs.

Thanks so much, Dea. It has been very difficult for me. I have never loved a dog so much, and Lou was so very special. Sorry for your loss as well.
