Y'all will probably laugh at me for this post
and think I'm more crazy than you thought, but maybe a few of you can relate.
I have MAJOR separation anxiety going on right now. I leave for Atlanta on Thursday, and Doug joins me next Tuesday. That means, Maisy and Pep will be here. Without us. Cue the hysterics.
This is my first time leaving them with anyone besides our parents. Luckily, our neighbors are just about the nicest people you'll ever meet, and they are taking care of our babies. But still, I am a mess over this!
Maisy has what they call an "emotional stomach" (it's common with boxers) and if she gets upset emotionally, it makes her sick to her stomach. When we first adopted her, she was in a new place with new people, and she was sick for the first few days. When I came back from our first trip to California, she was SO EXCITED to see me....then I went out to a movie later that night, leaving her for a couple hours, and we came back to one sick puppy. She thought I was leaving her again.
So I am terrified that this will happen while we're gone. I've imagined basically anything that could go wrong, and that's definitely not helping my nerves!
Lord help me when I actually have human children! Those poor kids will never leave my side!
