My Mom was packed for a little trip this weekend and I stood up and told her NO, NO WAY, NO HOW, just plain NO.
You know how you humans slip back into yesterday instead of looking at the sun shining today, well that is where she wanted to go, right down the rabbit hole into "should of, could of, would of" land. I took her aside and said Mom, " look around you, there is me, and Maggie and Gussie and even "mean ole cat Dietzman" this is a trip you do not need to pack for, just stay home with us. She just cried, but at least she didn't slip down that darn rabbit hole.
Its exhausting sometimes to be loved by humans.
