Today’s Challenge: Make a decision about your life and then go for it!
Most of you know we have two dogs now and we’re trying to make a decision on whether or not to keep Marek. We have 3 more days to decide. This decision is entirely up to my man. I didn’t want another dog. As much as I love all animals, I was looking forward to a little more freedom. I just lost my cat of 18 years (who needed a lot of care and attention the last year of her life) and I still have my wonderful 8 1/2 year old pug who is very easy to have around. Marek is 2 1/2 and the most amazing dog. I do love him but our lives have just become more chaotic, and we are living in limbo. We haven’t two-dog-proofed our home, we haven’t really done anything to make me believe we are keeping him. On the other hand, I see no signs pointing to us getting rid of him either. THIS DRIVES ME CRAZY! I have asked my man and he just says, “I change my mind every day.” I assure him that we can keep Marek and we’ll make it work. But he just can’t make up his mind. He has this deadline because there is somebody patiently waiting to make Marek her own wonderful new dog. If this was up to me, I wouldn’t have brought Marek home unless I was sure I wanted him for life–That’s how I roll. And at this point, we know he’s a great dog, a little too playful/wanting to be dominant with our pug, and our lives are crazy and chaotic now, but it’s all manageable. SO PLEASE MAKE A DECISION!!! If we keep him, we’ll two-dog-proof our home and move forward. If we decide to give him to his new owner, we can make that happen and move forward. Living in limbo sucks. Making other people live in limbo sucks. I like moving forward. I like to make decisions, right or wrong, and move forward with that choice… making a decision makes life so much easier. 🙂
