Endiku, I commend you for giving it a fair shot. I can see how it would be hard to "guard" her under your time and circumstances. Like the others have said, it isn't the biggest issue right now and hopefully she will settle down once she's home with Faydes. I'm sure she's going to be getting a tad bit spoiled for awhile anyway. She ought to be able to pack on a few pounds once she's settled and secure...the rest of us seem to have no problem doing that! LOL
Saw some of your Texas weather on the news yesterday and was relieved that the trip had been delayed. Wow. Quite a mess down there! Well, here's to divine intervention and wisdom greater than our own.
