Small Update

Yes, I know I've been away for a while.  Losing Sookie was very heartbreaking and just pushed me out of commission.  It is hard to believe that 2 weeks have past; but the pain never fully goes away.

Though I know many of my friends mean well, I would just prefer not to be offered a cat at this time.  I will certainly have another one, but I need to do it on my own time frame and pick the one that I want.  My hubby has always said that I pick out good pets....so a cat choice needs to be mine.  Sookie came into my life when I wanted a black cat, I'm sure that was pure coincidence - I love black cats...I just don't know that is what I want this time around.  I do look though and I'm sure I'll know the right cat the minute I see it!  So no offers please, it will come in time.

On the weight front, it's been bad.  I've gained, I look bad, I'm always tired.....it's just an on going cycle.  I'm hoping to get back to Weight Watchers soon.

Sookie



I'm sure you remember Sookie.  That little kitty who jumped up under my car at a stoplight and drove home with me?  If not or you need a refresher:

Only Me

I'm Lost....and then an UPDATE!

It was a story so worthy of many posts!

We lost Sookie this morning.  Though she hadn't been well in several days due to an abscess (which we have no idea how that happened); she was eating and drinking and hanging around us when we were home.  We were still not allowed to touch her (she's 99% feral and never lost that instinct).  But this morning.....She was laying under the desk and I not only was able to touch her but pick her up.  Not a good sign.  Figuring she had an infection from the abscess (it had been draining); we headed to the Vet.  Once there it was determined she had no fever, so it couldn't be an infection.  Though further tests could help make a determination; it wouldn't be able to save her in anyway.

She didn't make it  :(


The Vet thinks it may have been something genetic or even a blood clot or possible an internal injury that resulted with the abscess.  We don't know, we'll never know.

I just know my Sookie is gone and I'm heartbroken.

I've Been To The Beach And Back.....

This year hubby and I had to give up our annual Myrtle Beach trip in August; but I managed to wrangle a beach trip to Ocean City, MD with my sister, nieces and great-nephews.

We went down from Sunday to Thursday and had beautiful weather.  The water was extremely cold (we're not far enough south for it to be warm) but I'm not a big "getting into the ocean" person anyway - though I LOVE sitting on the beach.

We had a really good time and to continue with the "50" Links; here's some things we did:
