You know you’re a blogger when…
…you see this message on one of your websites:
And your first thought is — “well, at least this will make for a good blog post.”
#Fitblog is under attack, but I have some heavy artillery and I hope to have the site malware-free and back in business soon. And yes, I will be posting about how I did it.
Between Fitbloggin’ and Healthy Living Summit, my house is swag-tastic right now. And in an effort to de-crappify my house, I tried to throw out some of the stuff that I really didn’t need or want.
Including, a small, white plush egg. Yup, an egg.
Eggland’s Best gave the stuffed animal to me and while it’s cute, it doesn’t exactly go with my decor, ya know?
But Lucas decided to pull the egg out of the trash and give it to Junior. And I’m so, so glad he did.
Junior fell tail over paws in love with the creature, which we named “Eggy.”
I’m not exaggerating when I say he carried it everywhere. To his dish at breakfast, when he would gently lay Eggy down just long enough to eat.
Outside to the backyard (which contributed to the white egg looking more like a brown egg after a few days).
He took Eggy to bed at night, and moments after waking up, had him right back in his mouth.
But on Thursday night, a terrible fate befell Eggy. Despite Junior’s tender, loving care — Eggy cracked. Errr, ripped apart. Must have been Junior’s poor little underbite.
We had to throw Eggy out, and I have to tell you — even though days before, I was the one that had dumped him in the garbage, doing it this time truly broke my heart.
We now can’t say the word “Eggy” near Junior because he frantically starts looking for his little buddy…and comes back empty-pawed.
I don’t know why, but as silly as it is…seeing my dog fall in love with something, take care of it, provide for its every need and finally, miss it when it was gone just made me break down.
What is your Eggy? What do you love beyond words? I’ll assume your friends, family and pets fall in that category, so go deeper. Is there something that has sentimental, if not financial, value to you that would truly break your heart if it were lost or broken?
