Planing our visit!

During the last two weeks we were busy trying to find a good and not so expensive apartment to rent for our two days visiting Kiki. It is a bit difficult, because the region she lives in is a very touristy area. Lots of people go there to hike or bike so we had some trouble finding something. But in the end we got a flat in a village nearby, about 15 minutes away by car. It is quite huge, so she has lots of space to run around. 

Right now I'm planning our drive, it is "only" around 170km and normal people would drive on the highway and be there in under two hours. But not me. Haha! I'm not driving on the highway, so I picked out a road trip like drive and it will take us around 3 hours. After the middle we take a break, but the current plan is that I'll be driving the whole thing. (My Dad is not coming, only my Mum and I go.)

We took big sister on a holiday twice, but that was years ago, so it feels really weird to plan all the things we need for her. Because we get our car cradle thing first when she is here, she has to sit in her dog-bag for the drive to the flat. Long term plan is to get a proper box that will sit behind my drivers seat on the floor. I don't want her in the trunk, it is to unsafe in my opinion. Also I want her out of my view, so she will not disrupt me when I look in the rear view mirror.

Less than a month to go! :fire-nanner:

You are doing so well with your driving.  Many congratulations.  And I love Kiki's little house.  

No, you can't put a dog in the trunk.  A proper soft dog bag or a crate like this: https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore/product/petmate-ultra-vari-dog-kennel is probably best.  You may need to get her used to it in advance.  Start out slowly with short times in the crate and lots of treats while she is in it.

My big dogs travel in the back seat wearing harnesses that attach to the seat belts.  They usually lie down quietly and sleep on long trips.

Big sister travels on the back seat with a harness as well. I really hate to see that so many dogs are just thrown into the trunk or worse just put on the backseat without any harness. Fatal for the dog and possibly passengers. 

I did end up buying something because I couldn't stand the thought of her in a little bag for fifteen (!) minutes. 😂
I got her a something like this: https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore/product/dog/dog-crates-and-kennels/animaze-portable-canvas-dark-grey-dog-crate This will do it for the visits and later it will be her travel bed in hotels and stuff like that. She only needs to drive for about fifteen minutes when we visit her. We know that she did get car sick on previous longer rides with the breeder, so we are also prepared for that. She is used to being in a crate due to that.

      I'm guessing they have the same or same sort of PR folks that Big Brother contestants and the like have.  Because they seem to be using the same playbook.

      To be more specific the gist of the Hope we Hold podcast is (and will continue to be) the the world is hopeless unless you have hope in JesUS to get you to heaven which is real hope and not just wishful thinking. 

      One interesting thing was that they agreed you can't trust in politics. Hmmm. I guess unless it's your father or brother running on Christian Nationalist ideas?

      Meet the Pastor

      Tom Johnston is the pastor of Onycha Baptist Church. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in business from Bradley University and a Bachelor of Divinity from Pensacola Bible Institute. He was saved at Bradley University through a gospel tract that he received. Pastor Johnston has pastored in southern Alabama for the past 15 years. He has a heart for souls and encourages everyone to share the gospel. In April 2007, God led him to Onycha Baptist Church where he has been a blessing and encouragement in the restart of the church.

      See, see? They do work!  :roll:

      Yeah I listened to both of them (there are 2 eps up, about 20 mins each) because I hate myself @Idlewild. Here is the recap : Just imagine Jeremy talking. Done.

      I almost bailed because yes @Perrierwithlemon the mmmm-mmmm-mmmming from Jinger was grating. Not only do you have Jeremy blathering on but in your right ear (headphones) you have "mmm...mmm-hmmmm....mmmm....mmmmmhmmm" every 2 seconds. Oh god.

      • Thank You 2

      The first woman I shared my hospital room in february this year was a young mother with a ruptured fallopian tube after an ectopic pregnancy. She lost almost 2 liters of blood and they removed the ruptured tube. She didn't know she was pregnant and ignored the pain she felt until she couldn't bear it anymore and got to the hospital and was rushed into surgery. We stayed in contact and she made a full recovery, but would she have "prayed" for a relocation of ther ectocpic pregnancy like TAM thinks is possible, she would be death and her little son had to grow up without his mother.

      He knows he can make this claim because no doctor would actually allow a woman to wait around to see if it magically migrates into the uterus. So he can say, “you shouldn’t have had the surgery. The pregnancy could have survived.”
