UpSide dOwN and WhAteVer

What a weekend.......
Taylor had her first sleepover, it was a great night=starting with dinner out and then off to a movie--didn't expect The Last Song to be what it was about==take lots of kleenex if you plan on seeing it. Then home, the girls were amazingly well behaved, so well behaved that daddy has absolutely no problems with it happening again soon. Next day, Saturday, swimming, lunch, karate--and yes my baby got her next belt, and then home. Long night, but it started out great, we decorated eggs, and took lots of pics, had fun creating a table centre piece, took the birds out, and our amazing little budgie that has never wanted out, wanted to come visit with everyone else. Out she came, and when I went to put her back in her cage, she fell to the floor. Mike tried to revive her, but was unsuccessful. My heart ached, Taylor thought it was her fault, she was the last one holding her feathered little friend. We cried, talked about it not being her fault and that thankfully we were with her and she was not alone. Well the kitchen felt empty, twice I went to the cage to talk to my feathered little friend and Taylor summed it up by saying the kitchen wasn't complete with our little friend gone. What does mommy do???? Onto the computer, a night and morning spent looking for a new friend and what do I find but the cutest little baby Lennie - a small parrot, and believe it or not the breeder let us pick him up yesterday. He's our newest little addition and he's a sweetheart. He loves to snuggle, he's eating from our hands and loves his fruits and veggies. What an emotional weekend it's been, Taylor knows you can't replace a pet with a new one but you can find a new litle creature to love and care for. Thanks for reading if you've read this far, each week we seem to be on an emotional rollercoaster, but we'll make it, if it doesn't kill us it will make us stronger, we just keep hanging on sometimes upside down but whatever we will make it.

Oh heart aches for you and your family. Pets are such a wonderful blessing and, unfortunately, they leave such a huge hole in your heart when they no longer are with us. I am glad to hear that you have a new feathered friend to love and care for. Defintely not a replacement, but when you are a pet person you are destined to have one in your life at all times.

So glad to hear that Taylor's sleepover was a success and that she got her next belt :) She is moving right along! CONGRATS TAYLOR!!!!!

Sending you huge hugs Lis! I love ya girlie!!!!
