We lost our kitty....

Thursday, June 26, 2014

5 years ago this summer the summer program bus driver found a cat on the side of the road. They pulled over and took it with them to the school. The kids named it Newton as in Sir Isaac Newton because they were learning about him in science that week. We talked about keeping him but found out the bus driver had kept the kitten. A week or so later we went to Petco and this little kitten reached through the cage bars and attached himself to my daughters pant leg. He was so cute and when we looked at the name on his cage it was Newton. Well we took that as a sign it was fate and adopted him after a short waiting period while our application was approved. He was the friendliest cat, so lovable, so adorable, would flip over and let you rub his belly. Monday morning our 15 year old daughter found him in the basement...she thought he was asleep. He wasn't. I still can't stop feeling like hell about this. I loved that cat, he had his own facebook! I think about cuddling him and his kisses and his need for greenies (of which I have several packages and our other kitty doesn't like them). He was one of my children, I'm feeling really lost and I need to just keep moving but all I want to do is hold him again.

    Oh I am so, so sorry. I can't imagine how heart broken you must be feeling right now. It's so hard to lose a loved one. Pets are more than pets, they're family. I wish I had some wonderful words of wisdom to make this easier, but I have none. All I can say is that I will keep you in my thoughts and hope you can find some comfort.

I am so sorry about the loss of your loving kitty-family member. I have three cats and they are my children.

Sharing your pain and wishing you much comfort.

    I'm so sorry for your loss :( It's never easy, and this must have been a horrible shock for you and your daughter :(

I just had to have my 6 month old kitten put to sleep 2 months ago due to a severe heart defect, and my heart was broken. Take the time to cry and mourn the loss, but also remember all the good times. Newton will live on in your heart and your daughter's heart through the memories of his adorableness.

Please accept this virtual hug...I share your sadness :(

haven't posted a blog in an eon....

Saturday, June 21, 2014

Between my dad's death, mom's breast cancer diagnosis, subsequent double mastectomy, college, and my work schedule, plus the kids softball and soccer I haven't written a blog in an eon...

I am potentially up for a promotion at work, SUPER excited about that because it means a raise and NO more third shift! Regular Monday thru Friday 8-4. I haven't worked a job like that..well ever. I always worked either 2nd or 3rd and I'm really hoping this whole scenario pans out or I'm going to have to really start looking elsewhere for something that pays a bit more money to help with my upcoming student loan payments. I am exhausted like 90% of the time and I eat like crap because I have no time. Things at work are going to hit the fan after today because right now there are only two of us that work third shift and both of us asked for the 4th of July off and since I asked for it off first and I covered my coworker being gone for the last 10 days my boss honored my request for it off and scheduled the other girl to work. Yea, poos gonna hit the fan folks. Plus the boss forgot the other girl doesn't want to work any more days and scheduled her for at least a day or two each week so that's not going to go over. I know she forgot but after the other issue of the 4th I'm not sure my coworker is going to see it that way.

oh well, hopefully I won't have to contend with any of that anymore...VERY soon!

    I'm sorry for the loss of your dad; I lost my dad almost 3 years ago; it's a tough thing to go through.

I've also been through a bilateral mastectomy, so I know some of what your mom has to be going through too. I also know it's tough to watch a parent deal with cancer, my mom had Non Hodkgin's lymphoma 11 years ago.

I hope you get that promotion, and that going forward, things start to get better for you!

Guess i get to compare after all...

Saturday, May 10, 2014

FOUND my fitbit! might be my old one but at this point I so don't care I was so happy to see it I almost fainted! I have since bought a spark tracker which I will admit I'm not as impressed with so we'll see after I get to actually compare the two once it hits midnight tonight.
Oh did I mention I also have a flat tire, I was disinvited to my friends house to hang out while our daughters went to prom tonight, um, I work all this week despite being a 3 day a week part time employee, and oh what else...I have soccer or softball 6 days this week and homework with a learning team who can't do the assignments right.

Yea, the whole finding the fitbit thing made my day because the rest of it has been SO crappy.

    Did you find it? I know it's frustrating not to have that proof that you did your steps but at least you know you did it.

family game night

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

We instituted family game night again tonight, every wednesday; we make homemade pizzas and play games together as a family. Tonight we played Apples to Apples Disney and the new Monopoly with the little electronic cards...I don't recommend playing that with twin 8 year olds and a 10 year old. It took FOREVER...we finally called it due to bedtime.

I love having my family around the same table playing games, but I wish we had decided on something healthier to eat than pizza...sigh

    I'm happy you guys got some good time in together, though! Now that we're at the in-laws, we've all taken to eating around the table, instead of in front of the TV, and it's really nice. I'd already said when we moved that we were going to start that nice little habit up. It's a good change of pace.
