I've realised, as far as waiting for her to be ours is concerned, patience is not one of my virtues.
We are both so excited and busily preparing for her arrival.
She is going to the vets this week to be spayed, which is why we have to wait until Sunday to collect her.
We are hoping to go as early as we can on Sunday. The sooner we have her home the more time the three of us can spend getting to know each other.
In the meantime we are making sure we have all the bits and bobs she could possibly need. I think we have managed to get just about everything on our tick list now... and probably more besides. She already has her own designated kitchen cupboard that is gradually filling up.
Most of our recent conversations have been spent going through possible names. We must have suggested hundreds between us and the short list is anything but short.
She's slowly taking over our lives and she hasn't even arrived yet! There are only 4 more sleeps though.
