No Step Count This Weekend – Took a Break from Counting

Good Morning Mintdom!

Well, I thought I was going to be getting a new member to my family this weekend, but things do not always happen as planned.  I cannot tell you how disappointed I was when the owner changed her mind at the last moment.  Funny thing is that I was not in the market for a dog or any pet for that matter until this opportunity came along.  I thought about it for over three weeks.  I wrote the pros and cons, I spoke with my family and friends, and finally made the decision to go forward.  Once I made the decision, I got so excited.  Honestly, I could barely think about anything else.  I did not sleep at night, thinking about her.  I walked down the pet isles at the grocery store, looking at dog food, treats, and toys.  Fortunately, I did not buy anything except extra sandwich bags to pick up poop!  LOL.  I dreamt about the worse things that could happen and the best things.  I imagined snuggling with her, walking with her, taking her places.  Jeepers…. I was puppy obsessed and I had not even seen a photo of her.  Needless to say, I cried the night I heard it might not be happening.  What a roller coaster ride and I do not even like roller coasters!  LOL!  Anyway, that is life, and life is certainly about change; mine changed and then changed back in a week!  LOL

Thank you Eliza that is exactly how I feel – like cold water to burning metal!  LOL I know everything happens for a reason and all will be well.  I do not know what it is yet, but I am sure I will figure it out.  I DO know that feeling the disappointment is a good thing; it shows me that I am alive and well!  You know without the rain there is no rainbow!

AffirMINTion: I love my life and all that it holds for me!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!
