I got some super sweet Mother’s Day cards this year:)
You are pretier than a flower. You are smarter than a bee. I love you and you love me. Your the best mom ever. I’ll never stop loving you.
Thank you for taking care of me and love me. xoxoxoxoxox.
Grace has had this cute pair of flowery pants since she was about two years old. I got them at a kid’s used clothing store.
Fast forward seven years and Miss Skinny Ninny is still wearing the same pants. Now they are cute short pants and they still fit her just fine!
We had to have May put down yesterday. She had a lump on her side that the vet thought was malignant. It had grown very quickly. Things were changing and we were worried that she was suffering and we couldn’t tell. She didn’t have the most pleasant disposition to begin with…
She was 15 years old.
Surprisingly…the kids are fine and I’m the basket case. Actually that’s probably not a surprise…I had her before the husband, the kids, the dog…I got her when I was a footloose and fancy free single lady living in North Carolina, then I brought her back to Oregon with me. That was another lifetime ago…
I will miss cuddling with her on the couch. Grace will miss her bedtime snuggle buddy.
Danny and Owen will miss terrorizing her…and Daisy?
Well the kids are worried about her, they think she won’t know what to do with herself now and have suggested getting her a baby sheep or two to keep busy…
Grace wrote the following story for a school report about “What if, then?” They were supposed to write down a situation and then give four choices of how to respond, three that were ridiculous and one that was logical.
1. Go run around like crazy.
2. Stay calm and go downstairs.
3. Scream, yell, cry, and shout.
4. Sit down and don’t talk.
