Although it’s only been 7 days since we said goodbye to our sweet little Sammie girl it feels like it’s been a month without her. I just don’t know what to do with myself. From the moment I wake up I’ve always thought about what she needs – go outside, something to eat, clean water, snuggles and love. Now when I wake up I don’t have anyone else to think about 😦 When we’d leave for any reason I always had a time clock ticking in the back of my mind so I didn’t leave her home alone for too long…now, that doesn’t matter anymore.
I’ve been going for a walk every day to clear my head and get some exercise and honestly just to get out of the house for a little while. She is still everywhere I look, she had so many favorite spots to lay depending on what room I was in – yes, she was my shadow. And she is back in the house now, so to speak. The vet called Thursday to let us know they had her ashes and we picked them up on Friday. She now sits on the table in our entry way. The paw print is a little smudged but that’s definitely hers because she always had so much fur between her pads ❤ I also plan to get a photo of her printed on canvas to hang in my office.
As you might imagine, I haven’t been doing much sewing. I walk into my sewing room, look at projects I could work on but then I just lose interest, I’m sure it will come back. I did start a project right before we lost Sammie, a weight loss QAL with Kirsten of Sew Fabric Love. Amazingly I’ve kept up with it so far
That’s about all for now…have a great rest of your weekend.
