A lady and her husband came out to meet Gracie today and they've decided they'd love to have her. They will pick her up tomorrow afternoon. They'll be a good home, I'm not worried about that.
I told the lady she is more than welcome to call me with any questions or concerns that come up, I'd love to be able to help if they need it. She's also totally willing to send me updates, but I'm not sure I want them. I didn't ask for them, I told her I didn't think I wanted updates but she said she'd be willing if I changed my mind.
On the one hand, it would be nice to hear/see [in pictures] that she's doing okay. I don't expect updates, or to ever see her again, so it's not like I'd be unrealistic about it. If they update, great. If not, well, then they don't update. On the other hand, I almost just don't want to think about it. I'd like to watch the trailer pull away, cry my eyes out for a few days, and then just live in ignorant bliss for the next forty years.
What do you think? Should I welcome sporadic emails? Have you gotten updates before? Did it help or make it worse?
I know this is the best thing for Gracie, Ricci and myself, but it's still a little hard to absorb. She's my baby, I love her dearly, it's going to be really, really hard to watch her leave. I'm already crying. Ugh. Why couldn't I have one the Mega Millions?
