Thanks CW. Sorry to hear of your loss. It's never easy.

I have a 111 year old house. The work is never done. It's easier to get used to it, than do anything about it.
Hang in there, yourself.

This is so frustrating.
It is hard when things happen, but this too shall pass. Being a parent can be so stressful at times, but so rewarding at others. My hope is that one day when you are a grandparent to grandkids just like their parents you can look back and laugh. My oldest grandson is just like his Daddy, and I just love it! My son is never too happy when he calls me upset, and I laugh, but it is easier now that he is the dad. I am much more patient with grand kids too. Like I said, this too shall pass, but I do feel for you right now.

CWS, my sympathy in the loss of your dear dog. She had your love until the very end, and really did pass with dignity. I will think of you today as I clean out the fridge(something I dread doing).

decided to bake raisin bars , have made at least six times. could not figure what they were taking so long to bake. the minimum times was always right on. when i went to put the timer on five minutes for the third, i discovered the problem. set the oven temp 100 degrees to low. grrrrrrrrrr. made me feel super stupid.

CWS, I've been thinking about you and Rosalie. What a wonderful relationship you had with your faithful pet. I am so sorry she had to leave you, but I am glad she was able to be home with you in that peaceful and serene place under the tree and to feel your love for her to the very end. I wish you peace my dear.

cws, i'm deeply sorry for the loss of rosalie. i can't add anything to all of the nice things everyone has said, except that she'll always be with you in your heart, and you'll see her again someday.

Thank you, everyone. Roz-ma-taz will be in my heart forever--she wrapped her paw around my heart the moment I met her. I miss the sounds she made--she talked to me--and I talked to her. I miss her weight on the bed--she'd snuggle up against me, and, if she'd had her way, she would have slept on top of me. That I miss. I've had a lot of dogs share my life, but Roz was the cuddliest dog I've ever known. She'd get up on the couch with me and "purr" -- she was an old soul and most likely a cat in another life.She was a fretter--when my Missy lost her hearing, Roz took on the responsibility of being Missy's interpreter. She'd fuss and get me to check on Missy. I miss Roz in the kitchen. She was a great sous chef. And, yes, I am grateful that she left me peacefully...today I'm making bread. She loved home-made bread. I guess Missy didn't get her hearing back at Rainbow Bridge and called Roz to come and be her interpreter. And Steve, you got my girls, take care of them.
