The Bad Wife and the Blood Pressure

*Sigh* We got the call last night. Cleo will leave our house on Monday. I feel like the worst wife ever. Kevin's dog has been such a stress in my life since I have been at home. I can literally feel my blood pressure rise at times when trying to deal with her and it makes me more short tempered when taking care of Lubbock. I just know that giving her away is the right thing to do for me, but I worry about how Kevin will deal with it. He'll take her to her 'foster family' on Monday after work. I know he'll be sad, but I know it's the right thing to do for me and for Cleo. It's still sad.

With that said ... I hope Kevin can forgive me in time for my selfish request to remove her from his life.

Ohh, that is sad. You sound really upset. I'm sure he understands though. Lubbock is a priority for both of you, and Cleo was making it tough. He'll still have visitation rights, right? ;)

I've thought a lot lately about getting a dog. I just can't do it right now. Totally beyond my ability to cope at present. I hope someday...

Don't feel too bad. Cleo has snapped at Lubbock in the past...if she was in our house she would have been gone long ago.
