I went to my sisters for Thanksgiving this year. Just me, no kids, no husband. A much needed Mommy break. I figure I wouldn't be eating any of that good food anyway so why torture myself and be there and watch everyone else.
I had a great time. Mostly relaxing, watching some t.v., going to see Harry Potter, getting my new tattoo.... and falling in love with the cute, sweet, excited, drooling mess that is my sis's boxer puppy Bella. She is eight months old and oh my goodness I could kiss that sweet smushed face all day.
I miss having a dog. As our Molly was hit and killed last year I haven't been around all that many and I miss it alot. We took to each other right away, it was mutual love and devotion.
