Happy Anniversary

WordPress just let me know that I started my blogging journey two years ago.  I am dumbfounded as it seems like 2 minutes ago some days.  Time is funny like that.

Two years, a lot can change in two years, this I know.

I’m writing this as my husband is at the emergency vet with our nearly 17 year old cat saying good-bye.  He began getting sick on Christmas Eve and we’d been nursing him for the last few days hoping to turn things around, but it wasn’t meant to be.  We had 4 pets before the kiddos, and the last 2 had held on until recently.  We had to put my dog Bailey down at the end of September and now this.  My heart is broken again.

As I’m on the phone crying with my husband, I don’t even know what to say to Darcy.  Just another death in this house.  At 7 she’s lost her brother and 4 pets.  Too much death.  Too much sadness.  Just too much.

So happy anniversary to me.  At least I have this when nothing else in this world is making sense.  Godspeed Toby, go find the rest of the pack.
