Actually since my last post life threw something else at us out of the blue, that we certainly weren't expecting. A member of our immediate family was arrested for committing a very large crime. Now it wasn't murder or anything like that, but it's quite serious all the same and we are trying to deal with it since we had absolutely no idea they had done anything wrong. We don't see them that often and they live several states away. There are a vast array of emotions that go with it, and quite honestly I am not sure what we should be feeling right now.
I have never known anyone (at least not that I was aware of) who committed a big crime before and so this has thrown us for quite a loop. We are feeling angry, betrayed, shocked, sad...you name it. Also we have been asked to help financially which put us in a very awkward spot. If you read my blog you know about the insurance not paying for my dental work and the camera and all the junk I have been going through lately. But it's family so R feels obligated, although we aren't really sure we want to because it's not the same issue as if they had an accident, illness or disaster of some sort. If that was the case we would work it out without hesitation. We are just floundering with all this really because it's stressful and confusing. So that's why I haven't posted for a few days.
Today though we are going to barbecue and train...and hopefully name the new doggie and try to keep some semblance of sanity and normalcy.
I hope you all have a lovely, safe and wonderful 4th of July! Hugs, K. <3
PS...if anyone has a nice name for the puppy, by all means leave me a comment!
