Dogie Mama

Happy Friday Everyone! I'm in a jovial mood today, since I'm not at work (not to say I wouldn't be in a jovial mood at work if I were there).  I got a good night sleep last night and I'm ready for this most beautiful day.  There are many many things on my to do list today and I love to check things off of the to do list so that is perfect!

Does face book ever make you miss people?  It happens daily for me.  I miss old friends that face book allows me to follow, I miss my brother, my sister, my mother my father.  Yes, my whole family minus my mother are all on face book.  Funny how social media can bring people together.  We are all spread out, I have friends in all four corners of the US and even friends on different continents.  Social media makes the world seem oh so small and oh so big at the same time.

I have lots and lots of people here that I consider family...

You see, for me, family has to be bigger than blood.  Or else I need to move back to OH.

But the problem is, I really miss my sister and brother... You know the kind that are connected by blood...

So for now, my closest family member is Max!   Yes, you know it, I'm a Dogie Mama!

Max is going to go stay with my parents (his grandparents) at the end of April.  He will be staying with them for three whole weeks.  Is it silly for me to say I'm not looking forward to those three weeks?  It will be the longest Max and I have ever been apart from each other!  Three weeks is a long time.  I'm afraid he will like my parents better than me.  After all, they are home more, much much more.  My dad is really good with animals and my mom will spoil the  hell out of him.  Not to mention they have a huge back yard where he can run all around.  What if he doesn't want to come with me??  What if he likes them better than he likes me?  Irrational fears I know, but they are still there.  Have you ever left your child or pet with their grandparents for a an extended stay?  did you worry about them the whole time?  Why am I worried?  My parents raised me just fine,I'm sure he will be ok, and enjoy it for that matter, but still.  I'm worried.  More worried that he won't want to come back to GSO.
