This morning, all we could think about Waffles and how he was out there somewhere in the cold. All day at work I was trying to focus, but I couldn’t I kept thinking about Waffles and where he was, and if he was even alive! I followed my brother-in-law’s Facebook page for updates and comments. It broke my heart to see his missing poster.
Drew and I kept checking Facebook throughout the day to see if there were any updates. I couldn’t focus at work. I had to sit on on meeting and take the minutes. I was asked how my weekend was, and I said it was good up until yesterday. I told them about Waffles. I was frazzled and emotional.
The faculty member said that I think you have a good excuse to not be here today in this meeting. I said, are you sure, I can take the minutes. She said no it’s fine we can manage. I said, thank you and I got up and left. I typically try harder to not let my emotions get the best of me, but this one was hitting me hard.
At the end of the day, I saw a post, that said someone saw paw prints by Waldameer and Sara’s campground. After work, I called some businesses in that area. Everything is closed for the season, or no one answers the phone. I did manage to get a hold of someone and I alerted her about Waffles and if she could please call me and let me know if she sees any prints around the area. I texted my brother-in-law and he was thankful that I was trying to reach out. He said he would keep me posted, and I promised to keep him posted if I were to hear anything.
We all were expecting the worse, except for my mother-in-law she was hoping for a miracle.
