Yesterday was a busy day. It being Monday there was a lot of stuff to catch up on at work so that pretty much kept me going all day long, plus we went out for lunch for my birthday, which is always fun.

Hurried home to see Adam and Conner and just hang out. Conner was in a fabulous mood and it's still just so nice to have Adam home again. Conner thinks so too. I got my birthday present from Adam and Conner and hooray it's more bling! Adam picked out a lovely right-hand ring for me. He has fabulous taste in jewelry it's just too bad he doesn't buy more of it :-) Conner signed his card by himself and it made my heart melt.

Adam took Conner on a bikeride and as I was waiting for them to get back so we could get dinner I called my mom and dad and finally reached them on their cell phone. They were at the vet's office. My mom was putting her cat down :-( So I called my sister and we headed up the hill to be with her. Switzer was about 15 years old and it was truly the most humane thing to do, but it didn't make it hurt any less. My mom was pretty devastated, she was the only person that cat really liked and sometimes I wondered it the reverse wasn't true.

So we sat and cried with her and walked with her as she carried Switzer's, now at peace body to the car and let her and dad go home to grieve.

I talked to Dad this morning and he said they had a little ceremony for her and buried her in the back yard. He said mom was doing alright, but I know she has to work today so it's going to be hard on her.

Sooo... there was my birthday in a nutshell. It was a good day and I think it's always fun to make a big deal out of a person's birthday, after all it is the one day a year when it's truly about them.

Thanks to everyone for the happy, happy wishes and I can't believe I'm 25, I wonder how old my parents must feel :-)

  3. I am so sorry to hear about your mom's cat. That's very sad.
    In happier news, I am glad that you still had a nice birthday. I am a big supporter of Birthday weeks - as you well know. So party down and make everyone be nice to you all week long. You're life should go a bit like this all week:
    C - The dog threw up on the floor. Oh, I guess I will clean it up.
    A - No, it's birthday week. Why don't you relax and I'll clean it up.

  4. A very belated Happy Birthday! I'm catching up on posts again.
