It's almost been a month since Maddie died and my house is just not the same. Hopefully, in time, it will be back to normal. Husband has been out of town most of July and he comes home tonight (7-25). Kids are at my sister-in-law's house in Door County and my middle child has the case of homesickness. I would have expected it from my little guy, but stranger things have happened. My daughter is planning on going to a concert on the first with a bunch of friends of hers, this will be a test for me. I do have a hard time letting my kids do things like this, so we shall see. I mean, she is almost 15 ya know!
Got school registration packets for all but one child, and we went school supply shopping at Walmart. They were having a sale so we went to see what we could get cheap. Much to my amazement, we got a bunch of things. Now we have to go back for one more trip for my middle child and see what kind of financial damage we can do. Argh, the days when the school supplied a bunch of things (NOW I'm dating myself.LOL)
Our garden is growing wild so my wonderful husband comes home, just in time, to weed the darn thing (Gardening is his thing NOT MINE!!) Haven't been stitching at all, I don't know what my problem is either. I have things to do just no motivation. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!
Better go and get something accomplished in the last 1/2 before husband gets home. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, I say.

Well, instead of Maddie waiting until later this afternoon to pass away, she did it on her own in my living room (in her cat carrier where she was all night last night). She's in a better place with our other cat Kitty. But part of me just hurts. She was MY cat. I picked her out, I named her, she slept with me (or on me depending on her mood) and now I don't have that. I do have 2 other cats but they are nothing like Maddie. She was a Siamese cat, very cute and petite and only 9 years old. I feel bad for my kids, especially my middle child who is taking this hard. I just wish it didn't hurt so much.
