Over the weekend HH wanted to get rid of Z. She just keeps destroying one valuable thing after another. This is not the first time we've discussed finding her a new home, but there was something more determined about it. And I really surprised myself and came to her defense. I didn't realize how much I cared for our dog until yesterday.
So, we devised a new plan to hopefully help her. She's really a good dog--and a very smart dog. So, the problem is just that she gets bored because we don't always have time to devote to her. She's also a very social and energetic dog. So, this has to find an outlet somewhere. And I told HH I would come up with a way to provide her with that.
Remember my goal to run a marathon next year?
Well, I combined the two. Turns out my gym will watch my kids while I run outside. So, I brought the dog along and took her running with me. This was my first time running since Christmas Day. And it went a lot better than I expected. The rush of endorphins, plus the good feelings for spending time giving Z what she needs, gave me a super great high. It was one of the best Joyful Moments I've had since this began. It was really empowering and exciting.
But then, HH just got Baby B to laugh for the first time while I was typing this post and the Joyful Moment brought on by that adorable sound may have topped them all!
Wishing you all Joyful Moments to top them all!
