Less than 48 hours

Oh my less than 48 hours I will be in my new home. I can't believe that the day is almost here. My entire apartment is packed up; except for my clothes for tomorrow and my bathroom stuff. Bonk is running around jumping on the different boxes like she is conquering something. Every time she jumps on top of one of the boxes she lets out a loud meow.

Of all the pets I am the least worried about Bonk. I think she has a little bit of dementia, so I really don't think she will notice the difference. When we moved into this apartment she acted like she has always lived here. She still loves to run, so I know she will enjoy running from the bedrooms and into the living room. I also think Sophie will do just fine once we get the car ride over with. And I know she is going to love having her own yard again. And I know that I am going to really love not having her eat crap that is laying around the dumpsters in my complex.

And then there is Ben. Oh my poor Ben. He is going to freak out when I put him in the bathroom while my things are being moved out of this apartment. And then there will be the trauma of being put in the kennel and the car ride. The longest car ride he has had was about 40 minutes. I hope he will forgive me.

Sophie has been eating the same food for the last couple of years and you can only get it at Petsmart or Petco. Well, my little town doesn't have one, so I decided to switch her food to something I could just get at Walmart. Last night I stopped and picked up some food for her and she loves her new food. Usually when I feed her the food will sit there for a couple of hours and then she will go over and eat it. Last night when I put the food in her bowl she went crazy and ate it up in about 5 minutes. I think she likes her new food, but the change in food has given her the worst gas. Gah...I hope it's gone by Friday because I am not sure if I could handle being in the car with a gassy dog for 3 hours.

Tomorrow is my last day at work. The thought of walking out of there makes me sad. My entire office is packed up and most of my belongings are in the trunk of my car. I hope I like my new job as much as I have loved this job.

Tomorrow on my way home from work I am turning in my modem, so that means no Internet at home. I will probably carry my laptop up to the clubhouse to check blogs and do a quick post. I won't have Internet at home (unless I can tap into someones wireless Internet) until Monday. My friend L is being induced on Monday (unless she goes into labor sooner which is a very good possibility) and I told her Monday is going to be a wonderful day because she will have her baby and I will get cable again. Yay!!!!!

Caroline, Caroline, Caroline. Have I taught you nothing?? When you change the pets food, you do it gradually! You give mostly old food with a little new, after a few days increase the new, etc., till after a couple weeks, they are entirely on new. It's a pain in the neck, but better than a pain in the tummy .... and in your nose!!

I'm SO excited for you!!! Don't forget to tell the moving crew to not open the bathroom door!

BTW, I'm picturing you going all weekend without cable AND internet!!! Even with the distraction of S part of that time, you're gonna be a nutty ninny by Monday! LOL!

I was getting ready to type the same suggestion when I seen what Lyn typed about the dog food.Good luck with the move. And to your friend

Caroline said...

lynilu--i had planned on doing that, but I ran out of Sophie's food before going and getting the new food. i think i will be ok with no internet until monday..i will have s to keep me busy, plus i will be unpacking. i already talked with the person helping me move and told him about the cats in the bathroom...he said he understands because he has cats as well

bobbie--i know, i know...the gas is my fault. :)

Glad you have the gassy dog and not me, that's one thing I can't stand. Cable....Baby....I can see how those would both be equally exciting...haha

Change is in the air ... I was going to offer the same advice about changing food that Lynilu gave! The pets will be fine and most of all they will sense how happy and content YOU are!
