My little cat Maddie...

As I write this, she is hiding someplace in my house and I cannot find her. I had to take her to the vet a week ago due to her just looking sick and it turns out that there is severe dehydration, liver problems, not eating or drinking. They kept her overnight to give her IV liquid and that seemed to help some but now she isn't eating again, very little drinking and not using the litter box properly. The last 2 days she went "missing", the kids and I found her in typical hiding places, but this morning we cannot find her. We looked in "typical" hiding places (behind furniture, in the computer room, etc) and now fear the worse. I'm hoping she will come out when she wants to but she is SO weak. Please say some good thoughts that we will find her and keep her alive long enough but I realize that this is fading fast. I will give updates as we receive them.

Boy do I spoil my children.........

Well it's that time of year again, end of school. Sad for me, good for the kids as they are sick of school and getting up early for it. I look forward to sleeping in at least an extra hour every morning. Anyways, I always get an "end of school year/good report card" gift. This year my daughter wanted some form of Dance Dance Revolution game (which I got her), my middle child wanted "Indiana Jones" Lego game for the PlayStation 2 and I got him that and not to be out-done, my youngest child wanted the same game but for the Nintendo DS and I got that game for him as well (along with the "cheat" book as he gets REALLY frustrated at times when he cannot figure it out and no one is "allowed" to help him.)

Then my daughter will graduate 8th grade and will be a Freshman next school year. When did this happen?? LOL So come fall I will have a Freshman, a 6th grader and a 3rd grader. Where does the time go??

It's sad to see our "routine" go out the window for about 12 weeks but it's a nice change of pace and it's more relaxed at our house. The kids are looking forward to going to an indoor water park thing at a hotel on the 19th and that will be nice for the kids to go to.

On the stitching front, I finished my Lizzie Kate piece that's part of the "Tea Crazy" patterns and will post a picture when I get the darn thing pressed, it looks to terrible the way it is, so I'll "pretty" it up a tad. I'm not sure what I'll start next. Maybe something by BlackBird Designs. I have 3 kitted up but I'm not sure which one I'll start first. Oh decisions, decisions.

Hope everyone is having a blessed day.
