Rita is good today. Yesterday I could tell she was recovering. Even though she sleeps the entire time she’s in the car, I think there’s something about the trip that causes her problems. I’m not sure if the blindness and the motion contributes to it but she really has stayed sick off and on with all the back and forth.
Yesterday she was in her happy spot with the movers all talking to her and petting her.
When she does get sick, she rarely stops eating. She’s a good eater and she loves her food.
Today she’s had good BMs (I do feel like a poop inspector when she’s sick because that’s how I know when she’s fixing to be sick and when she’s getting better). I would say today is about 85% normal.
At the house in Texas, she has her big doggie pillow/bed on the floor in the family room so we’re always near. Here, in MO, because she’s been sick so much and her bathroom manners have been questionable, she doesn’t get to be on the carpet. She stays in the dining/kitchen area.
She never jumps up in my chair (she will with Vince) and from where my chair sits, I’m as close to her as I was in Texas but without the divider between us but I don’t think she feels “alone”. I know she hears my keys clicking as I’m typing and hears my knitting needles clicking so she’s fine not being able to come into the living room.
That’s the breakfast room table in the floor that needs to be put together (legs attached). I’m going to see if I can find the tools to do that today and get it out of the floor.
Glad that Rita is feeling better. Once you get that table set up, you’ll be able to use it to unbox/unwrap the kitchen stuff.
Be careful in walking up the stairs with the boxes that go in the different rooms. I hope those aren’t too heavy. Of course, if some of those boxes have the “use sometimes” type of items, I can see just putting the boxes in the TV room until the final destination place is determined.

Anything heavy I either leave it for Vince or Chad or unpack downstairs and bring up in fewer pieces at one time.
You have a lot of people who worry about you…its good that you can have Chad help you move the heavy things.

She is just confused and doesn’t understand. Since Quincy has been in the crate with the torn ACL, Bella has been very upset and has been sick. I think they are both getting used to it now.
