A name is a name is a name

But what is it?!?IMG_2265[1]

So, we need a name

Please help. My first choice is Sadie, but Molly’s best pal at school is named Sadie so I think it’d probably be too weird to go that route. And AO thinks it might be too weird to use Gerts again, but I like it so much. Anyway, please help. She’s coming in 3.5 hours!

Back to the beginning

Tomorrow we are going to meet our new puppy, name TBD. Or at least that’s the plan. That means just one more day of a puppy-free life. There’s a lot that’s nice about living puppy-free. For example, generally speaking, no one in our home just randomly throws up on the carpet. Also, no one has to be carried outside to pee in sub-zero temperatures at midnight. No one needs to be walked and no one barks at the mailman. But, there’s a lot that I’ve missed in the months we’ve been puppy-free. I’ve missed snuggling with a fur ball, I’ve missed watching Molly play with a dog and I’ve missed being greeted with four paws and a wagging tail. It’s going to be a lot of work, and there’s no way we’re going to get lucky enough to have another Gracie in our lives, but I think it’ll be really great and I’m so excited.

RIP, Robin Williams

I can’t say anything meaningful on the passing of one of the world’s most vibrant talents. I’ve been devouring the tributes and the memories that have recently been written about him. Given how much of him we have seen and heard over the years, it’s obviously not shocking to learn that he was dealing with such horrible demons, but it’s nevertheless devastating to hear that he fell to such ultimate pain. I am immensely sorry for him, his family and, frankly, for all of us. Robin Williams was one-of-a-kind and, I think, that this is a brilliant story that beautifully illustrates his importance. Kudos, once again, to Dahlia Lithwick for having such a lovely (and I mean that literally) voice.

And we’re off to Saukville!

In the timeless words of AO, “Hashtag bittersweet, hashtag just kidding.” Let’s get our life back!
