I’m not one who enjoys change.
Yet, my whole life has changed as we create a new life in a new place. I’ve done pretty good considering I’m change-resistant (please don’t verify this with Mad Dog, let me hold on to this one, tiny little dream). However, if you are reading this Mad Dog, please stop sending workers of various sorts to my house. Even if just for a day.
Is that too much to ask?
I already know the answer. But, for the sake of writing the rest of the post, let me have this other, tiny little dream of a day with no strangers in my home. At least let it live on for a little while.
See? Doesn’t that feel better?
Everything is good. Everything will be fine. I’m just the slowest to adapt to new surroundings compared to everyone else in my house.
I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Even Max, who is my own version of a superhero disguised as a shih-tzu, is adjusting seamlessly. His only complaint is that I am too busy for the amount of daily snuggles he requires. There has been some crying and whining, ok, so it’s mostly my own, but, still, he follows me valiantly. His 15-year-old self has navigated boxes and new-to-him corners with an unrelenting persistence to keep me in sight.
I wish everyone had a Max.
If they did, his kind of devoted love would fix us all.
I don’t know how long Max will call the Lone Star state his home, but I will be grateful for every day that he does.
I better hurry and get my tasks done.
Snuggles wait for no one.
