I try to conquer my fears by facing them.
I was afraid of dark water, so I became a certified scuba diver so I would know what was underneath me. I love scuba diving! I was afraid of heights, so I went skydiving - twice. I loved it! And, if it wasn't so expensive I'd love to be a certified skydiver.
You know me well if you know I'm scared of DOGS.
Last weekend my brother and sister-in-law had their dog with them. I was very proud of myself for how I was around her and I even pet her. My man clan fell head over heals in love with Mary Jane. She's all they talk about. Our oldest told us he'd rather have a dog than a car - that was a shock to hear!
So here's the dilemma:Meet 6 week old Lily. She meets every criteria on our list BUT:
1. We'd have to drive 13 hours to pick her up.
2. She would take every cent of my stash for home improvements.
3. She'd be here in 2 weeks.
I know my man clan would be ecstatic but I can't decide what to do. I can't decide if it's my fear talking to me or that my home improvement stash would be empty. I need to decide quickly because I have to put a deposit down so she's reserved for us.
What do you think?
