I also have much anxiety today too. I wanted everything to be just so for her. The kids were here to help and they did a bit but Tasha did the most. The other three really just hung out and played while Tasha and I did some work. They irritated each other and then because my anxiety is so high today, I actually yelled at them. Something I have never really done but I did. I told their mom and she said they deserved it and she was fine with that. I am glad about that. My anxiety is going down now but my heart is still racing a bit, which will take longer to calm down.
It is supposed to get colder this week. They said really cold for summer but so far it really is just fine. I hope it stays that way. We had such a cold winter that I am just enjoying the warmth of summer. Many days it is beautiful and not too hot. I love sitting outside with Peony and watching her play in the grass. She has been such a major blessing. I had thought I wanted a dog just like Maisy, another Brussels Griffon, but now I am glad she is different and doesn't look anything like Maisy. Maisy will always have a place in my heart but Peony is her own dog and I love it. She is such a good dog too. Peony is learning new things all the time. She follows me a lot. Today, she is learning to stay off of the blue ottoman that is right next to me. Yup, she needs to not go on it but she loves to go on it. The next thing is going to be our beds. She still goes on mine no matter what I say. I figure in a few weeks of all of us being home and working with her, she won't do that anymore. I love her so much.
My headache is worse than normal today. I think the raised anxiety has made it higher than usual. It happens and I get through it so I will this one too.
Here is a picture of the Peony girl. I am not sure if I posted one yet.
P.S. the stuff that is in behind here is no longer there! Tasha helped me put it away so that I can get to all of my music in the filing cabinets. This is Peony on about the 2nd day we got her.
