Yes, I'm alive....and some other stuff

May 10, 2010

Hi friends! I'm back. I know I promised to be back last week....but I just didn't have it in me to blog. Ever feel like that? I had a bad week, first finding out that my grandma passed away, dealing with family stuff, and then my cat Henry took off and disappeared. He somehow ran out the front door right when we were getting ready to go to bed Wednesday night. And he was gone. We searched for that little monster for over 2 hours in the dark. Finally, exhausted and in tears, I told the husband it was time to go to bed. Needless to say, neither of us could sleep. The husband kept thinking he heard Henry and he would go downstairs to check. Finally, at around 5:00 a.m. the husband heard a cat crying. I went down to the kitchen and sure enough there was Henry, on the back deck, staring right at me. I am so thankful he made his way home. He wasn't wearing his collar (thanks to Wrigley's habit of pulling it off of him) so I was really worried. The next day I went out and bought both the cats collars that Wrigley couldn't pull off.

So, on Thursday, I was sort of exhausted and overwhelmed....hence no blogging. But, I'm back and feeling much better now!

This weekend our friends Mo and Ali came in for a short visit so I could snap some photos of them to use at their wedding reception (they are getting married this weekend...yay!). This one is my favorite.

Then the husband and I had a nice evening spent eating pizza and cuddling up on the couch. Just what I needed!

On Sunday I took Wrigley to the dog park and then we went to visit my in-laws for Mother's day. And I forgot to take a single picture. Fail.

But here are the pictures of our tulips that I have been promising to post....for like forever. I still can't believe we managed to plant something and actually not kill it. That's a first.





Are you impressed? You should be. Oh, and look at the pretty mulch the husband put down....
And I had to include a picture of Wrigley. He will be a year old at the end of this month...can you believe it?
