Driving and gas

Driving will have to become more of a necessity than a pleasure if gas prices keep going up.  I can only work part-time and that is not enough to be able to buy gas.  I wonder what excuse the gas companies will come up with now.  Sometimes, I think it would be cheaper to move within walking distance of where I work and only drive when the weather is bad or I go out of town.

Counseling

I have been in counseling for 3 months now.  It has helped me considerably and it has helped me to be self-aware. I am better to handle situations and I don’t get as angry as I did.  I will continue to take my pills and go to counseling as long as I need to.

Pets

Pets are wonderful companions.  They can help lower blood pressure and they can pick you up when you are down.  They are also easy to love and to give your attention to.  They want and give unconditional love.  I wish people were more like pets.

Lady

Got Lady on February 1 and have enjoyed her.  She keeps me busy, which is good.  Taking her to the vet to get her second round of vaccines.  She is very precious and I can give her my love and attention.  She is a Chihuahua.

Puppy

If all goes well, I get my puppy tonight.  I know it won’t replace the other pets I’ve had, three dogs and two cats, but I can love it for itself.  Don’t know if it is a male or female, but I don’t care.  Since it is a really small dog, I will have to be with it every time it goes outside and it will have to be on a leash, which is the law.

Counseling

I am not a big fan of counseling, but I need it right now.  I don’t know when the depression started really, and I don’t really care, I just want to get better.  My counselor let  me know that I am ready for a new pet when I said it wouldn’t replace Rocky and that I could give it love and what it needs.  I hope nothing happens so I can get the puppy on Thursday.

Puppy

I will be getting a puppy this Thursday.  I don’t know if it will be a boy or a girl, but the name Ginger keeps coming to mind.  It won’t replace Rocky, but loving it will hopefully help me get over my grief over him and help me to cherish my time with it.  I thank God that He sent the right information my way when He did.

Depression

It’s been over a month and my depression is getting better.  I may be getting a puppy, which will help, but it will not replace Rocky anymore than Rocky replaced Midnight, Spot or Prince anymore than any of them replaced Fluffy.  I will be able to love my next pet for what it is, not to have it replace any of my other pets.
