Life goes on

Okay, I'm dealing with the cat sadness. I told the girls and they initially didn't seem to care. Which was a relief that I didn't have to deal with them crying (like when the school pet died at Bridget's school), but it also made me sad, that it seems, I am the only one that IS sad. A while back we told them that some day when the cat was not with us, they could get other pets--guinea pigs and hamsters and such little creatures. That is all they centered on. Later, Becca had three major full fledged crying break downs over little things. This is not normal for her. Bridget sat and told me that she would miss the cat and maybe she would come back. I told her she wasn't coming back and then she seemed more sad.

Now the rest of the family is all anxious to run out and get little creatures. So I am the only one mourning the cat here.

In other news, Becca has decided that she can actually dress herself. I knew that she could but didn't press the issue. She is the baby you know. I don't have anybody else to dress. The first couple days she matched everything really nicely. Yesterday she got a little silly and thought she looked so beautiful. She had the yellow striped shirt with the multi-colored heart pattern pants with the Dora sun hat and to complete the outfit--ruby red, glitter slippers. I've seen crazier from Bridget, so I know she can kick it up still, but it was cute.

Also this week I lost my debit card. I have never done such a stupid thing before. The Bank very kindly didn't make a big deal about it. Then my Adobe program (where all my photos are stored) just wouldn't open. It gave me an error that said the license stopped working and the program will not run. Thankfully this is Schaun's area. It took him a few minutes but he fixed me all back up and my photos are all safe. (They are backed up, but loading them again would suck).

Thank you to all my family and friends that kept me in your thoughts and prayers. I really appreciate it.

Your girls seemed to deal with the loss pretty well. 18 years is a long time to have a pet and it will take you awhile to get used to not having her around. I'm so sorry you lost her. Hugs to you.

Kerry I've been thinking about you. Hugs.

Becca looks adorable, and I think her clothes are just perfect!

I've been thinking about you. I've been through it. It is sad when our own family doesn't feel the same sadness, but then again, as mothers we are the sadness bearers of the family sometimes, and we take on all that 'stuff'. I am glad the girls are looking forward to some small critters of their own. I think it will be fun for them to get to participate from the beginning.
