I’ve had some people email me to see if I was doing ok, so thought I needed to let everyone know why I haven’t been posting.

My husband was sick (the last week of last year and it continued through the new year) with a cough and a bit of congestion. The dr. told him to buy an over the counter med and it seemed to be getting better, and then would get worse again. I took him to the hospital on January 8th and he was admitted. The next morning they sent him to the ICU and put him on a ventilator, but he just kept getting worse. Then on January 22nd he passed away.

This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through. Since I quit working many years ago, we’ve been together 24/7 and  it’s so hard not having him with me. I loved him very much and miss him every second of every day. My kids have been amazing and without them I don’t know what I’d do.

Because of this, I haven’t been on the computer for about a month, and I don’t know when I’ll feel like posting again.

I’d like to thank everyone who has known about this and have been praying for him and my family. I appreciate it very much.

Today has been a sad day. The dog my son rescued from an abusive owner and gave to me as a present 13 years ago died today. I ended up having to give him to my daughter because he didn’t get along with the dog I already had, but I loved visiting him and listening to his hilarious bark.

My daughter and her family live on a one way street and her husband’s parents, a cousin and an aunt live a few houses down and/or across the street, so there 4 different households to visit with. He was such a good dog who loved having his head and back scratched and his belly rubbed. He was also a great balloon popper!

You’ll be missed for sure, lots of people loved you. RIP Fart !

(his name was Bart, but I always called him Fart)
