And just to add insult to injury, Ace hates it! The first couple days I could tell he was holding in tears as I walked towards him to pick him up. He broke down and said "I missed you so much, and they won't let me leave! I don't like being told what to do, and I don't like being away from you so long." As if I weren't experiencing a whole range of emotions, now he acts like I am torturing him. Begging me to not take him. I mean break my heart and then back over it with a tractor trailer!
How can I go on?
I'll tell you how, because there are little glimmers of hope....I think.
