Compromise

Devin wants to wait til we're out of debt. Marie wants a cat right now. We'll talk in December. I realized I was putting a lot of my sadness over Gus into looking at kittens and thinking about how fun a new one would be. After our discussion/fight last night, I was putting away some stuff and found Gus' brush and it made me really sad. I had pushed down a lot of those emotions because I didn't think it was acceptable to grieve over a pet for more than a day or two. I'm still pretty sad about losing him.

It is natural and normal to grieve over a pet who is like a member of the family...Gus provided lots of love (and adventure) for you! Allow your grief, celebrate those memories of Gus, and enjoy your girls!
