Puppy Fever

Pretty much everyone I know is pregnant. Or just had a baby. Every couple (and some single friends) from Turkey either had their first kid in the last year or is currently pregnant. I know it’s the stage of life, but it’s still a touch jarring. 

All the announcements have caused a bit of an identity crisis for me. We aren’t remotely close to a decision of yes or no on kids. Much less planning to have one anytime soon. I do worry about being left behind. Or missing out on something that everyone seems to get. 

But I don’t have baby fever. All year, I have had puppy fever though. Every time someone would announce a pregnancy I would get a craving for a puppy. Which is good since we got one last month. 

He’s been so much fun. He plays and runs and makes love to us all. He’s figured out the bell to get outside and I’m hoping that means we’re over the hump of house breaking. We’ll test it out this weekend when we take him up to Bakersfield. 


About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
