    Thank you!! It is a huge weight off of our shoulders. After first being told it was definitely cancer or pre cancer to now find out that it is negative is huge.

    Just wanted to check in.....my emotions are all over the place.....today we're putting down our sweet Riley :sad1: He's been such a wonderful part of the family. It feels like my heart is on the outside of my body. My eyes are so red from crying. Just sitting here with him in my lap until its time to go, giving him lots of last puppy kisses.


    I'm also planning the Disney Cruise for Joshua's bar mitzvah gift, just he and I. Got the okay from DH last night. Girls aren't thrilled but they understand. It'll be next January. I want to pet my puppy, read trip reports, and cry.


    Bittersweet day for sure. :goodvibes

    Thank you. It's so very painful. I'm also flying out to CA this weekend for my cousin's funeral. I'm chalking up Feb 2013 to total crap.

    I'm very grateful for the time we've had with Riley. He's been a total joy. I'm going to miss him so much. Joshua and I slept with him all curled up last night. The ground is frozen solid so we're going to cremate, not ideal, and then bury his ashes. There's no way DH could dig a hole. ​

    Not an easy day for you that's for sure. I'm so sorry.
    I had noticed a few questions you had posted on the cruise board, and wonder what was up, now I know. What ship and itinerary are you looking at?

    :goodvibes Thank you.


    We're looking at the Disney Wonder, 5 nights in the Caribbean next January. It'll be just DS and me. It'll be his bar mitzvah gift. Of course the girls want to go, DH doesn't, and the girls cannot miss school. They each get to choose a trip or a big party. Gabby chose a week in So Cal with me and her best friend. We rented a convertible Mustang and had an amazing time doing the beaches, shopping, and eating. The girls got one day in Disneyland but I didn't go. Chloe chose a mega tip to WDW with all of and got to bring her best friend. Because Disney cruises a so expensive going not peak is a must. We decided it'd be great if I took Joshua. We're buddies and I'm elated. The girls have proven that missing school isn't good for them so that's where we're at. I think I'm going to start a cruise pre trip report. The itinerary is:

    Miami, day at sea, Cozumel, day at sea, Castway Cay, Miami. :cloud9: It was the best itinerary for us. I'd love to do a 7 day but 5 will be great with just the two of us. ​

    Thank you. It is as though a weight has been lifted from our shoulders.

    Oh Jenny, I am so sorry. It is never easy to put a pet down. We put our Shelby down in December of 2011. She had grown up with our kids so I know how you feel. We ended up adopting Annabel Lee not long after because our house was so sad. She rescued us. :hug:

    I am sorry that you have the funeral too. Such a rough time for you.


    Take joy in planning the cruise with Joshua.:goodvibes

    Thank you. It was just so sad today and I feel so sad right now. He literally died peacefully in my arms. He was such a good boy, aren't they all. Thank goodness Guinness is here or I'd be a bigger mess. We listed to Tagled on the way, I don't think anyone was paying attention but me. They all wanted to watch it tonight, so we did, and I bawled during most of it.

    I'm so glad you got Annabel. :)

    I'm trying to do anything to occupy my mind so I'm in trip planning mode, guess it's my coping skill. Better than drinking but more expensive.

    Yes, the funeral is Saturday. I leave Friday night. Most of my family is batcrap bonkers but I am looking forward to seeing my closest cousins. I can't imagine how my aunt feels right now. Losing my fur baby was hard enough.

    Sorry to be such a downer but this is such a safe place to vent and process and I really appreciate the support. :goodvibes

    Oh Jenny I am so so sorry. What a hard day.

    Trip planning, if nothing else, is a wonderful distraction. Huge hugs coming your way.

    Jenny, our four legged family members are a huge part of our family dynamics. I would be more concerned if you weren't mourning him.


    I love Tangled, I have cried watching it.


    Let planning carry you away.:grouphug: I speak for myself but I am also sure that the others feel the same. Feel free to vent, we are here for you.

    Please don't apologize for how your feeling, you've had a rough go of it lately. I sure hope the cyber hugs your getting from everyone are helping a bit and the idea that we're thinking of you makes you feel a bit better. :grouphug:
