Insight

On Tuesday afternoon, we made a very stupid mistake.

 

We thought we were making it for the right reasons;

But in hindsight…the decision was completely wrong.

We decided to adopt Mila out to a new home.

 

Mila growled at the first couple, and would not go near them…so that was a “no”.

The second woman, however, was very genuine, and Mila seemed to bond with her immediately.

So, with tears streaming down my face, I handed her over…

And away she went.

 

Despite her brief stay with us, we spent the next 24 hrs extremely sad.

Fortunately, sadness has a way of bringing things into sharp focus.

 

So last night at midnight, we realized our mistake.

We emailed the dear woman to try and get her back;

And fortunately, she understood.

(She had a dachshund, a cat, and a husband in the house, so she was not alone…)

 

This afternoon, Mila came home to stay.

And all is once again as it should be…chaos and all.

I am thankful we had a chance to correct our mistake.

This was taken with them moving, and me skating behind them with the camera to my eye–trying to focus at f/1.7 and 1/60s.

One take!

Older-ing

…always with the oldering.

Five today.

I told her to stop…

But she won’t listen.

Time just refuses to stand still.
