Sadly, we will be putting down the wonderful Hercules soon. Way too soon. Less than 24 hours. I am depressed. The bags under my eyes are super puffy. The dark circles have darkened to look like I was punched in both eyes. Emotional pain hurts. The sorrow is real. The kids are a mess. Seriously. A mess. They constantly break down which then makes me break down even more. Even Marty is sad that we have come to this. I really thought Hercules’ heart would have given up but it keeps fighting. It’s fighting too hard and causing a bunch of issues with the rest of his body. At one point last night, Marty and I both said he looked like my uncle Deuce right before he passed. Oh the tears. I am not ready to let go of my friend, my best friend. He was my “first child”. He has been by my side for everything. I love you, Hercules.
We made these tonight for the kids and myself.
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Mix and knead until it has a play-doh consistency. Bake at 250 for 2 hours.
