You see, we were trying to adopt a rescue shiba inu, unfortunately for us the apartment managers decided that, even though we used to have 3 cats at one point, we weren't allowed to have more than 2 pets at a time anymore, no matter if we have been loyal and pretty much model tenants for over 6 years.
I understand rules are rules, and I am a rule follower, still, it made me very sad to have to write a letter to the rescue group and tell them I will not be able to bring a pup home for the holidays to give it a forever family. I actually felt like crying at work when Andrei let me know the apartment folks were budging, but that's life.
I guess we just need to move to a house so that we can have all the pets we want, yes?
Still, like always, I am lucky, Andrei tried his best to make me smile, and of all the people in the world, he'd be the one to manage to make feel better without a doubt.
Also, I had fun with my team at work (they rock), so all in all things balance themselves.
And if any of you live in Florida and would like to adopt a pup in need, please consider the Shina Inu Rescue of Florida, my dealings with them were wonderful, and they have great dogs available for adoption.
In better news, I was recently featured in a series of posts over at TheNotMom.com a site that celebrates women that are childless either by choice or by chance.
My interview can be read here. It was flattering to be asked for one, and I was as sincere as I could. It is sort of nice to know there are many of us and that we shouldn't feel like we are an anomaly of sorts.
Also, I am still amazed by the ripple effect my re-booting post caused, if you had told me that something I wrote would cause such a stir within so many I probably would have thought you were pulling both my legs.
Finally, here is today's doodle:
