Dog day

The phrase dog days usually means hot days of summer. Well we came cross some form of a dog day today.

Got up this morning with a smile on my face. Went to a CVS pharmacy to grab some trash bags for packing. Not the fanciest form of luggage but you do what you gotta do.

Since I was actually looking forward to moving out of the hotel I felt at ease. Me and the boys decided swim. We hadn’t gone swimming all summer so it was good to enjoy the moment.

Some guys show up for the ex. They just so happen to be our ride to the Amtrak train station. We load up everything we brought. Dogs included. We arrive at the station early. Found out that the train doesn’t allow plastic bags or dogs. 

Go figure.

I start to scramble to fit things from the plastic bags into luggage. Trying to find homes for both dogs becomes the real struggle. Diamond the pit puppy finds a home instantly. Kaydon the mixed breed couldn’t find a home. There was a nice lady calling her friend to see if he could stay.

I pray everything went well. 

Once again trip California has brought us to our knees. If I was keeping a tally Cali definitely won for the worst stuff that can happen in a matter of months. But just like this train we keep pressing on. With heat in the chest and dogs gone like the wind. Today is what it is.

I have no clue how tomorrow is gonna turn out. I’m not sure if it’s important to know. Or even anticipate it. It’s truly not worth the trouble to think about it. 

I’m feeling the vibration of this train. Letting life run it’s course and feeling peace deeper than anything that I’ve ever felt before.
