After months of “I’m going to NY, no, shit, I’m not” I’m finally going. I told the Bear, “come Hell or high water, I am going to NY!”
I get to drive all day tomorrow, and then visit relatives till my head falls off, go back to the motel where I always stay, get a shower, drink a beer, go to bed and start all over the next day.
I can’t stay with family although I have a plethora of relatives there. I love them, or I wouldn’t visit, but I need to decompress after I spend a few hours with them!
They never stop talking
Also, they never stop talking over me. Apparently there’s something about me because this is a common thing in my life, people talk over me all the time. I don’t tolerate it from anyone but my family, only because I’ve given up trying to change them. There are occasions when I’ve yelled “LET ME FINISH A SENTENCE!” but that usually leads to “why are you being such a bitch?” so I rarely do it.
It’s exhausting after a while, and it makes me remember why I so rarely get homesick and never regret having moved away. I look forward to the visits, but I also look forward to the return to the privacy of a motel room every night.
And it’s a much nicer motel than the one in Schitts Creek, by the way.
Maverick will be beside himself. He already is, he’s been watching me pack and bring stuff to the car and now he’s just kind of moping. Laying on the guilt, yes he is. On top of this, his favorite treat was just not the same. Max was the first to get a Woofer every night. It’s a dried beef patty made by a company in Illinois, he would stand on his head for one of them. We continued the tradition with Maverick, who usually gets a couple at night because Dad is a pushover.

I opened a new box last night and thought they looked different. Much thicker and darker. I gave one to Maverick, he took it to his rug and dropped it, then looked at me like, “what the hell is this thing?” And refused to eat it. The Bear tried to break it after I was unsuccessful, He couldn’t break it either. He put it in a vise and hit it with a hammer to finally get through it and then basically tore it in half. It was strange looking inside, like paper.
Maverick got a different treat.
Today I emailed the company, not expecting much. They responded with a request for the lot number so they could further investigate. I sent it to them, and they responded by thanking me and offering to send a replacement box. What????? This kind of customer service is unheard of these days! I am very pleased, and impressed.
So if you get a chance, check them out, because a company like that deserves our business. And meanwhile, I’m going back to packing the car
What? I’m sorry but were you saying something because I was busy with another blog. What did you say, hey never mind, let’s talk about something else. Hee hee. Have a great trip and good luck surviving the family. Maybe more than one beer at night. Bring a keg. Drive safe and don’t feel bad because you have totslly and mercilessly abandonrd those who love you thd most. Even though a minute is forever to a dog. What?

I believe you may have been sampling the beers yourself, my friend. 🙂 Beer is actually cheaper in NY than here – amazing, but I think it’s because everything there is so totally out of sync with reality, everyone stays drunk to cope.. I normally bring back a case or three
I doubt I could have made any more typos. But full disclosure: not the beer, I was on mobile and my fingers don’t fit well.

I suck at typing on the phone. So I will forgive you. This time
Have a safe trip and hold tightly onto your sanity. At least you will have plenty of puppy therapy waiting for you when you get home!
(Toby like the Jones’ Bag o’ Hooves. Glad to hear that they have such great service.)

What is this “sanity” thing of which you speak? Maverick was so cute this morning, I had a hard time leaving him. I’m here safely and about to indulge in an adult beverage. And I was very impressed with the customer service!
Only one adult beverage? 🍺 🍻
Oh there was more than one, and I slept quite soundly, thank you! This morning, my hips are telling me that they did not appreciate 6 hours in the car, but I’ll walk that off as the days goes on
