I love all of this, but(t) especially the use of the word “heinie”. It’s my favorite of the words for butt. Well, I don’t love that Jelly is hhurting and you are exhausted, but I love the way you tell it. Love to you.

Remember in Junie B. Jones how she calls it a "behiney?" That's also my fave.

I never read Junie B Jones - B wasn't into it (we read all the dragon books) and they came out when I was in college - but I love behiney - reminds me of how kids used to say "butcept" instead of but and except.

You would love home remodeling then! I will tell Jelly you're rooting for him.

This so reminded me of what we had to do with Zoe. All the kidney disease meds and all. The world seems a little strange now that's she's gone. :(

Losing them is so strange and hard, no question.

Totally. I think we're gonna get a new puppy once Mike gets a new job but that'll be in a few months.
