Yesterday our little cat didn't come home. We have looked everywhere and talked to all the neighbors. She is gone, much like when my daughter's cat disappeared and never found. The cat is 19 or 20 years old, but seemed in good health the night before. The sadness is there most all the time right now, but will not be so bad in a while and she still might come home. And PJ, no I cannot take your new little Trouble as much as I'd like to help you out on that.
The movers came early to pack my daughter's stuff to move to Conroe. She called a little while ago and she has caught up with them on the freeway and they left an hour before she did. I wonder if she has one more time to take that course on Saturday that cancels out a ticket. *sigh*
My birthday was so nice with all the kids here. It is good to be able to see and visit with them even if it is only for a little while. Today is my mil's birthday, but she doesn't know it. No progress on that front at all. And now my fil is going downhill rapidly. He can't remember anything either. We are still talking to them about going to assisted living, but she is adamant about not going there or having someone come in to help them. It is a terrible quandry....and if something really bad happens to them, I guess my husband and I would go to prison for elderly abuse. Even though we have contacted everyone, and every agency that we can think of. Their doctor says they need to be in assisted living, but he doesn't tell them or fill out the paperwork for a competency hearing. And I think if we got them in now they could just leave. It is wearing both of us down.
My poor husband is worn to a frazzle with all that has been going on. The cat was mainly his "baby" and he is broken hearted about her. This too shall pass, but I wish God could give us a break for a while.
At 2:21 pm cdt--On another note...has anyone had to sign up with that crazy Gmail? I'm not liking it at all! It is weird and I can't just see what is in there....it is all right up in my face. Anyway, it is not my favorite and I'm worn out with people changing stuff all the time.
