Take Two

Posted in thatchik30

So a month ago I reminded myself how much I really suck as a wife and mother. A month ago I was feeling an immense amount of guilt over the unfortunate death of our kitten. I was the one who saw his photo online and just had to have him. We didn’t know that he already had Feline Infectious Peritonitis. He lived for eight months and was with us for 3.5. Since there is no cure and the progression of the disease seemed to be fast for him, the decision was made to euthanize him before he really began to…

‘Til We Meet Again

Posted in luckychix22

I had to say goodbye to my first ‘child’, my longest relationship, my best friend on monday. I had no idea how hard it would really be. We had 13 years together and I treasure each and every day we had. He was there for the good and the bad, moves cross country and back and my constant companion. I can’t say good bye, but until we meet again. I love you old man, always and forever Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

I immediately completed an application to adopt him. The next…

No Child Zone

You are my friend.  I love you but I do not love your children or your pets. So as time passes, naturally most of our married friends are having children or have toddlers.  Be that as it may, I can safely say I am absolutely not ready for a child at all.  I relish my 30 minute showers, 20 minutes for makeup and another 20 for hair.  I love my leisurely trips to the mall where I can linger in a shoe store for 40 minutes trying on every pair of ankle boots they have.  I love that I can…
