I had a great time teaching this past weekend at Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale, Az. I just wanted to write a big thank you. It was a great weekend when I was teaching and with friends. Thank you guys!
On the home front, it was a weird weekend. Some would say it was a weekend filled with drama. One that you don't want to happen often as it would make you crazy. We had an Invasion of the Stupid Building Management company on Thursday. All caught on video tape (with their approval). Watching it makes my head hurt.
Saturday, we found out about some sad family things that have happened. My heart goes out to our family members who are going through all of this.
Saturday night, I found out (by accident) that my sister's beloved dog, Dewey, had died. He had been sick for a long time. It was the same day that my nephew was brought home from the hospital. My Mom had been taking care of Dewey (also known as the "Grand Dog") for the past few weeks. It happened at her house and the doggie died in his sleep. They found him curled up on the rug in the morning. I dreaded having to come home yesterday for the first time in my life. How was I going to tell Tristan that his best furry friend was gone??? Tristan talks about two things: Lego and Dewey, Dewey and Lego. I waited until Monday afternoon (after I got home from AZ and did all of the things we had to do-return the rental car, etc...) and we took him to a place far from home. I didn't want him to have to associate anything with losing his best furry friend that day.
So, if I am quiet and melancholy for a bit you know that we are all aching from the loss of a damn good dog. Dewey, we love you and miss you!
This was Dewey's "Want to go out?" or "Dewey, want a yum yum face?"
