3 Things From The Past Week // 07

Sunday, September 24, 2017

The past week has been pretty crazy, with a lot of feelings.

1 | Most significantly, I grew up with two yorkshire terriers. We got Molly when I was 8 and Jazzy when I was 9. I don't remember not having a dog. On Friday, we put Molly down, and it was the saddest my heart has ever been.

Molly's old age had been showing for a few years. She went deaf, then blind, and then over the past year or so, started to get a bit senile. She'd been a champ for 16 years, and even though we knew it was her time, it didn't make it any easier. I'd never had to put a pet down before, and I've never even had any close relatives pass away. This was hard. Jazzy spent the next day lying in Molly's bed and refusing to eat.

Hug your pets and give them lots of love. We know they won't be around forever, but we'll still never be prepared to lose them.

2 | Saturday served as a good distraction since it was my friend's baby shower. The only other two baby showers I've gone to have been for relatives, so this was very exciting. I got to catch up with a few friends from college I hadn't seen in a while and of course with the mom-to-be. She moved from Chicago to Arizona a couple of months ago, so it had been a while since I'd seen her as well. She looked amazing. I hope that when I'm pregnant, I look as good as she does.

3 | My boyfriend has had a work event to attend this weekend, both yesterday and today, so I've had the apartment to myself for the majority of the weekend. It's a bit of a bummer, but I've been taking advantage of the time alone, watching my shows, writing, and being as productive as I can.
