        I am kinda in mellow do nothing mode right now. I have to put my dog to sleep on Saturday and I am too bummed to do anything right now. The wedding just doesn't seem as crucial right this second. I am cleaning like crazy though. I think it's my way of coping.

        is anyone else obsessing about cleaning their house??
        - i made my appointment for highlights for the august wedding yesterday
        - i wrote most of our legal ceremony yesterday, HAVE to finish it today because our officiant wants it a few days in advance
        - we have all the docs for our legal day in a big envelope sitting on a bookcase in our home office
        - we made a hotel reservation (initially we were going to have his parents stay at a hotel and we were going to stay at our house, but now we think we might do it the other way around)
        - i need to confirm his parents' flight details of when they arrive next friday so i know what time to go pick them up (i think it is around noon or 1)
        - i have a pedi scheduled for next thurs night and a wax scheduled for friday morning
        - still need to decide what kind of flowers i want for legal day
        - need a slip for under my dress (kinda see thru)
        - need to clean my house next week for my inlaws!
        - need to figure out how we are going to seat everyone for legal day, then probably borrow chairs & chair covers from a friend of my s-moms

        i am SO sorry to hear about your dog. is it old or sick? my parents had to put their rottweiler to sleep awhile back and it was so so sad. the wedding can wait until next week, just focus your energy on yourself and grieving right now. losing a pet is like losing any other family member IMHO. we're here for you if you need anything.

          I am so sorry to hear this. I know you must be feeling pretty bummed. We had to put our baby girl, Cali the Calico, to sleep last summer. It was SO hard, but she was really sick, so I knew it was the best thing for her. We only had her for 3 years, but she was soooo much a part of our little family. I still miss her...I hope you can light in this. :hug:

            So sorry to hear this, its really horrible to have to do. I had to do it to my alsation 7 years ago. He was 13 and just very weak and old. I held him while they did it because I didn't want anyone else to hold him, I was crying all the while. I know how you feel. So so sorry.

              that is so freakin sad animals are definately part of our family and i so so hate when ive had to do this too. just know that is is the best decision and the least selfish thing you can do for your dog.

              the 2 times ive had to do this, i was so glad i decided to go in the office while the vet did it. it was a little scary but i am so glad i was there with the kitties and that i was able to comfort them at the end.

              {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{BIG HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} to you and please let us know if you need to talk about it later today
