As it turned out, the week off came at a perfect time. We had to say good-bye to our almost 15 year old cat, Abby.
We've had her almost our entire married life, so the last week without her has been an adjustment. I still find myself watching my step every time I go out into the garage...she liked to camp out right under the door.
|She could do tricks...like sit up and beg for a treat.|
The kids are handling it well. Caleb said "This is so much harder than when Rex (his fish) died." They were definitely sad and still miss her but are enjoying their memories of her, and think it's "boring" around here now that she's not here to play with. The other day they let me know that if they pooled their resources they had $90, and asked me if that would be enough to buy a new cat. (smiles) I told them that they could probably get a new cat for free and they were pretty amazed about that. We're going to hold off on getting a new pet for a while, but in the future, who knows?
|One day last Christmas we found her curled up with Baby Jesus.|
In other news, it was a busy week too. We hosted two parties over the weekend so the week was spent in preparation for those.
I've been tweaking the breakfast nook and working on a few other projects, and I'm looking forward to showing you some new things this week!
Here's some sneak peeks...
Hope you have a fantastic week! Thanks so much for sticking with me and reading my blog. You all are the best!
