I'm going to ignore the fact that the weather has been straight up trying to murder me these past few days and just let you know that it's my little Maeby's 8th birthday today!!!! Seems like it was just yesterday she was a scared lil pup coming home from the shelter with me. She will be getting extra peanut butter and banana and turkey today! But also, because I am a terrible mother, I will be leaving her for the weekend to go hang out upstate with Theo while he finishes up his workshop. I hate leaving her alone, it gives me horrible anxiety and I always cry when I say goodbye! But I know she will be just fine like she always is. And besides, I leave her alone like once a year, so it's not like it's a common occurrence. Girlfriend goes everywhere I go. We'll celebrate all together properly on Monday, and she loves her best friend who comes and takes care of her. I'm desperately looking forward to some trees, fresh air, and... whatever else it is one does in Poughkeepsie!
