Well... somehow we got through the day. Gidget was extremely nervous for quite awhile after I got home from work. We went out in back, and I let her run some of that energy off, but apparently it wasn't enough, because she never really settled down until around 8:00.
For some reason I looked up at the clock today when it was 1PM. I sent Mike some hugs and kisses, and told him to make sure he keeps letting u know he is near--and Gidget too.
I also sent u hugs.
Tuck has his head on my leg, and God, I wish Mike was physically there with u too--I know u wish the same with all ur heart. But, I know Mike is a strong presence and will be taking care of u.
Hugs to u and gidget.

Cindy, I did the same thing... looked at the clock just before I was going to go out for a break and saw it was 1:00. That was really hard. I just wanted to hold my boy. Thank you so much for the love and prayers you offer. You are such a special friend.
I went back in to the office and just couldn't concentrate, so at 2:00 I took another break, and that made it worse... I realized that was about the time he was being taken from me for the last time. I really hate this... I've been through a lot of things that were hard to get through, but this is the hardest (other than losing family members).
What was really strange yesterday too was... normally, when I get to work, all four of Joanne's dogs greet me at the door. They know when I come in they all get a treat. Only one, Odie, met me at the door, and he looked depressed. Frankie, Oobie and Dillon were no where around to meet me. And later, when I went out for a break, I had to call them to see if they wanted to go out with me... no one came... not one of them. It was so strange because they usually go in and out with me. I'm guessing they picked up on my mood... but it's odd because it seems they picked up on it before I even got there.
I'm leaving for work in a few minutes. It's a beautiful day. I went out and planted the yellow tulip plant that Marilyn gave me in memory of Mike. It's in the flower bed by the front door where I can see it either standing at the door or from my bedroom window. There are 6 beautiful yellow tulips on it in full bloom. Now every time I see yellow tulips, I'll think of my prince (of course it won't take tulips to make me think of him).
Have a great day everyone. And thank you so much for all your love and caring. You all mean so much to us.
Love & Blessings,
Joanna, (Angel) Mike & Little Gidget
