The Basics

I was productive. I made a shopping list, and then went with Greta and Fritz and Hubby to the grocery store. Upon arrival I determined I had left the list at home. That’s okay, I decided, because I am so out of it, that just getting to the store was an accomplishment.
I went slowly through the store selecting the things I needed and desperately trying to remember what I’d written down on my list. I was grateful that Hubby didn’t ask to see the list. I think he might have realized I left it at home.
We got some great produce, which pleased me, and even got a nice Swordfish steak for dinner that was on sale.
We arrived home and I lugged all the bags up the stairs and got it all put away. I made lunch, and then somehow lost the afternoon. Don’t ask me what I did, was it TV, or the computer? I am not sure, it just seemed that the next thing I knew it was time to make dinner.
I had a few people call on the phone about Shubi. I did okay with most of them (meaning I didn’t sob uncontrollably), but a few times I just lost it and could hardly swallow.
She was greatly loved.

  1. Beautiful picture. There were times it was okay to talk about Felisha and not to break down and cry then other times I found myself couldn’t breathe because of the pain I felt..missing her so much. My thoughts are with you maribeth.

  2. OMG, I have been so out of the loop. I am so sorry to hear about Shubi. Big hugs. It is so hard to lose a pet that you’ve loved like a child.

  3. Thankfully you have the most wonderful pictures of Shubi and you! That is a great one!!!
    Don’t worry about sobbing, everyone understands and we all love you and will miss that darling Shubi so much! She had not one mean bone in her little body. She was the best!

  4. I was so very sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved pup. Here’s a virtual heart hug since there are no words to say.

  5. I’ve been away this weekend, and only now read the sad news. I’m so sorry to hear about your sweet Shubi.

    It’s alright about the sobbing – I defy anyone to go through such an experience without doing it. It’s only right to grieve for the ones you love.

    She was a sweet dog, and she will be missed.
