This is not my year

Monday, September 21, 2020

It has been 5 months and one day since I lost the love of my life.
I also had to say good bye to both of our dogs this year.

I am barely hanging on and am not really doing much to take care of my self.

I have decided to keep my daughter's dog and last week I adopted a kitten to keep the new dog company.
I purchased a house and moved to a new community 250 miles to the east of where we used to live.

Moving to a new community in the midst of a pandemic is beyond challenging - there is no opportunity to socialize to meet new friends and I don't feel safe in public places like gyms yet. So I walk the new dog many miles every day.
I have a new job and am just trying to figure out what my life will look like in the future.

I am so far from happy, but I know that I will be OK.

    What a hideous, wretched year. Glad you got your fur buddies, & walking tons is very healing, even if it doesn't feel like it; take it 1 day at a tune. I'd be happy to chat with you via zoom/text/email/tweet/insta (I'm not a big fb'r), or just DM here, if you need an ear.

    You have been through the mill; I am so sorry all this hit this year. Perhaps the new job and new location will turn out to be better than you can imagine right now.

    Easy for me to say hang there hon as I have never walked in your shoes. But what I do know as this will get better at some point and only you will know when that is. Sounds like you are doing a lot to move on but don't force things to quickly it will come in it's time not matter what you do. Just think good thoughts and share the love you do have with your new pets for now, they will give it back to you for sure.

    I will keep you n my thoughts and prayers to find your peace. emoticon
