OMG! The rain just won't stop. It has rained all afternoon and all nigh so far, at 10 PM. My anxiety level is definitely up. It is still scary to hear the rain. I have never been afraid of weather before, but my chest tightens at night when the rains come.
Yes, I did cry when I picked them up. They were so very happy. Well, after they visited all possible combinations of dogs in the waiting room, much to the displeasure of a lot of owners. We all got willingly into the new truck. They rode home in great anticipation of a running and smelling their familiar yard. I so disappointed them. They have about 15 x 15 corner of the yard. And an 8 x 16 driveway space in front of the camper. We put an easy up tent there.
On the way home I had a talk with them about the house and the yard and the camper. They were sure none of it was true and that Normal would prevail.
As we pulled into the driveway, the deluge began. We ran under the easy up and stayed there until it stopped in about an hour. They were frantic about the situation. Never before had we sat out under a tent in a rainstorm.
They were intrigued by the camper, but Chloe was particularly adamant about going inside the big house. We went into the camper instead. McGee go on the table, DiNozzo Got on the bed. Chloe got int the bananas. And they were soaking wet. As were we.
At some point things began to slow down. And I sat on the sofa thing. McGee came to sit by me. When Chloe walked by, he attacked her. I tossed him int the crate.
Then I sat down and cried again.
Everybody was OK, but It scared me. So now we have an active baby gate system while we live in such close quarters. In a 27 foot camper. Oh, yeah.
Frank and the dogs slept most of the afternoon. I looked at appliance reviews and spworked on my inventory list for the adjuster. I just can't remember what I had. My sewing room alone had thousands of dollars of fabric, books and equipment. But I can't remember any of it.
I am so tired of this. I want it over. I want my stuff back. My beautiful house, my messy house.
And so do all my neighbors.
