The Mister and I did something yesterday we haven't done in over a year. We went our separate ways at the same time. When Dear Old Doggie was with us we had to tag team her care so we were limited in our ability to get out and about.
Today he went and played golf and Pup and I took a walk down by the bay all by our lonesome. It's sad not to have Old Doggie with us anymore but taking care of a disabled dog is a terrific undertaking and we had been at it for almost two years.
We even left Pup at home and went and had dinner at our local Mexican place for Valentine's Day. Since she wasn't able to walk anymore we could never leave Old Doggie alone so dining out was something we haven't done in ages. Ages.
Of course I cried all the way home. Maybe it was the sangria, maybe it was all the losses over the past few weeks. Dinner was good but sometimes a good cry is better. Even sadder was the tragic news coming out of Florida at the same time we were heading home.
I am rather proud to say I got banned off Twitter for 12 hours last night for my response to this tweet that the NRA had re-tweeted right before the shooting. If you are curious about why I have a hair trigger to these mass shooting events you can read all about it in my post Too Close to Home.
