Although it has been 5 months since the passing of our dog Nina, I still morn her daily. Am I alone on this sort of thing? I just feel so sad sometimes when ever I am reminded of her absence. As the seasons start to change memories have flooded my mind.
For example: the first heavy snow fall when I was shoveling the snow, Nina would bark and try to chase every single shovel full I threw. I was just sitting there throwing the snow and missing the once annoying habit of my dog. I would look out my back window seeing the neighbor behind us shoveling hers, and also would miss Nina driving her NUTS by all the barking and jumping on the fence.
Now the snow is melting... and I found a tennis ball in the yard :( She loved (i mean loved) her tennis balls. As I threw it to my new loved friend ( my neighbors dog ) I felt this pull at my heart. I am thinking " really Jill??".
I am sure that when summer hits I am going to miss taking her to the ravine. Watching her beautiful self running and chasing after her tennis balls. Also taking her to the park and watching her play with any dog that would participate. She would actually get on the play gyms at the park with the kids and go down the slide. It was hilarious!
Sorry for the depressing post... I did say this would be my therapy for the next month!

Am I alone in the fact that I sometimes go through my day and think hmmm... I should blog about that, but then never do. I have had so much stuff going on in my life these past few months it almost seems overwhelming to put into words. So I think that I am going to take the next month and use this here blog as some sort of therapy!
First on my list to share:
Children... recently my husband and I decided that 3 was our number. So we did the permanent thing and he got the old snip..snip.
I totally feel as though God himself told me that 3 was my number. I felt content with this decision and in fact was excited about not worrying every month if our protection didn't work.
I had peace! I settled in to the fact that THIS was my family. That I was onto the next chapter in my life.
Then Christmas hit... I realized that morning that this was in fact the LAST Christmas I was going to have a little baby more interested in the wrapping then the actual gift. That we were capturing such a monumental moment in our lives that morning. The Christmas that our family would no longer be a growing one. Ouch
I have had many moments since that morning where the reality of the place I am in my life has hit me. The place where change is soooo scary. I am not going to be bearing any more children. Also the fact that they grow up so fast does not help that fear of change I have. The feeling I get when my now 8 yr old looks at me and says " are you really going to wear that?". Or when my now 5 yr old tells me that I don't have to hold his hand anymore walking into school. And now my 1 yr old is talking and walking and being such a snuggle bug!
I am not saying that I regret the decision my husband and I have made. I am just facing a huge change of direction in my life. We all have these milestones in our lives. College, marriage, buying a house, then of course babies. I guess I never really thought about what happens when you stop being a baby maker :) It really is something all mothers will go through. Some may feel relieved, depressed, joyful or even scared. I am just really fearful of change.
to be continued...

My dad's side of the family originated from Yugoslavia. My mom's side of the family came from Greece.
Where is your favorite place to buy cheap stuff?
I am not going to lie.... I shop at Wal-mart. If I need something on a tight budget I look there first, then of course Target.

Do you miss anyone?
Yes, My grandpa Brocus. He was just an amazing man. Although he had faults just like all of us, he was perfect to me.

Today I dropped Nina off to have a routine surgery that most dog owners have done. (spayed) Only mine never got to come back home. I can't even begin to tell you how much my heart wells up every time I think of her. That phone call was one of the worse ones I have ever received. She was not only a "dog" to me she was a part of our family. The details of the event our still to painful to even write down, so I will leave this short and sweet.
Nina, you will forever be missed and oh so loved. You are not replaceable and I look forward to the day I see you running in the clouds to greet me at the pearly gates! I love you sweet girl! Lilly will be lost without you. :(
