back home

August 05, 2005


All the good news had to end sometime!

As I was in the airport, waiting for my departure, I got a call from my mom. I started telling her about all the travel I will be doing the next 2-4 months.

Right now, it looks like this:

August 15th – 19th going to Kansas City, MO
August 22nd – 26th going to Columbia, MO
August 29th – 31st home
September 5th – for 3 weeks…training a new launch of products who knows where (might be near my home…might not)
Last week of September, it’s back to The Belly Button of America.

October will include some possible travel, but nothing set in stone as of yet.

And I will be going back to the Belly Button again in November.

This is all flight travel! It doesn’t even include some of the travel I might be doing by driving throughout my territory.

So this is where we run into a problem. Kiki! She has been staying at my mom’s for the past 4 weeks. Kiki loves it there and gets lots of loving. When I mentioned all the travel I will be doing, my mom asked, “What are you doing to do with Kiki?”

Well, by that question, I’m assuming she’s not staying with her. She has never told me there was an issue having Kiki stay with them. It was always offered.

She asked if my dad would take Kiki. My dad lives in Arizona…if Kiki goes there, she’s staying there. My 7 year old sis would grow attached and it would break her heart for me to take Kiki back later.

Kenneling gets very expensive and is just not fair to Kiki. Nor is attempting to bring her with me (not to mention I couldn’t afford it) I don’t know anyone in Columbia yet that would be willing to help out. And it’s also not fair to Kiki that I am going to be gone so much.

So, I don’t know what to do. I look like a fool here in the airport, crying because I think I might have to get rid of my dog. I’ve had her for 2 ½ years since she was a baby and she’s the best dog anyone could ask for! Her and I have been through a lot together and I can’t imagine going along without her!

I'll be in Columbia when you're there. We should enjoy adult beverages one night.
