Me Worry??

~Our cat CC~
It was lunchtime at my office today and I was anxiously waiting for a text from Lydia (new dog-walker) to find out how day two had gone for her at our house.  If her schedule was the same as yesterday, I thought she would be at our house around 12:30 and I'd asked her to let me know how it went.  But I didn't want Lydia to think that I didn't trust her or have confidence in her, so I didn't try to contact her. However, when I didn't hear from her by about 1:30, my imagination took over.  I wondered, had Lydia come today?  Had she accidentally left the gate open and the dogs all got out, and she was running around the county to round them all up?  Had Todd or Sunny bitten her, and she didn't have use of her fingers to call or thumbs to text? Had Shadow seen the cat, attacked her, and Lydia couldn't call because she was putting CC back together again?  Why hadn't she let me know how it had gone?  I decided to do the only thing I could, I texted her.  I got the below response....
Remember that Sunny growled at her yesterday.  So, score one point for Lydia...

I received two more texts from Lydia telling me that things had gone much better today with Todd being on a leash and she'd gotten him back inside with no problem.  Score another point for Lydia.
I just knew there was nothing to worry about.

  2. BOL in a 10 minute time frame you mind went off the chain. Sounds like Lydia has it all under control.

  3. It's so hard when they first get to know each other and I can imagine with the number of animals you have, all with such different backgrounds and needs, it will take some time. You cracked me up about the loss of ability to use her fingers....made me laugh because it sounds a little {ok, a lot} like me. :)

  11. It's so easy to say " Don't worry" but tomorrow maybe that will be lots easier. Lydia must have a magic touch, Sunny and Todd will know this, just a new face takes some getting used to. Cheers, Jean.

  25. You know Kim I make soup every week of the year... We love it and I never use a recipe either. It is what needs to go in the soup and then the other stuff comes from my dried beans and grain that is always in plenty here.
    In the cooler weather cornbread gos with it always. A great healthy meal!!
