TGIF (a different acronym)

Brene Brown used to send out a weekly email with a TGIF theme. She stopped, but I am totally ripping that off.

Trusting that one day, it will be okay. We had to make the hard decision to put our sweet dog Duncan down this week. I still find myself looking for him or thinking that I haven't fed him, things like that. It's hard to say that I have one pet, a cat. I know time heals things like this, but that hasn't made this week any easier.

Grateful for messages and cookie deliveries from friends and family, leftover Halloween candy, a cold front, taking a midday walk to vote on Tuesday, lunch dates with friends, and Queer Eye.

Inspired by oh gosh this one is hard. Maybe I can't steal this. Let's say I was inspired by Brene Brown to write a post in this format.

Fun. My work team likes to send the blinking white guy meme to each other, and also the "this is fine" house on fire dog. I love that someone has made the dog into a stuffed animal. If you need a Christmas gift for your friend who can't get off twitter, this is a solid rec.

I have a lot of post writing this weekend because I am in NYC Tuesday - Thursday of next week with likely no free time! Expect an update on my screen time limits and honestly, I'm not sure what else. Week one of my goal is complete!


  1. OH goodness, i am so sorry. We had to do the same about a month ago, and while I do know it will get better, I'm still definitely not better. Thinking of you guys!

  2. The Fire Dog! I wish I had someone in my life who would appreciate that the way I might. I feel like he's been my spirit animal for the last 5 years.

    I'm so sorry about Duncan. It's always too soon to lose a pet :( <3

  3. :( i'm so sorry about Duncan. i'm sure it was the best thing to do. i know he was sick.

  4. I'm back reading and am still so sorry about Duncan. Hope you're all okay.


I like comments and read them all but I'm not great about responding to them, so please don't be offended. I would much rather visit your blog instead!
