One of the nice things about living in Minnesota is we usually are able to celebrate a white Christmas. This year not so much. This was the only pile of snow left in our yard on Christmas morning. Kinda made for a blah day. I guess technically though it was a white Christmas. Of course two days later we got five inches of snow.
2014 was not a good year for Thompson. He had noticeably less energy. At one point he stopped getting up except for meals and litter box time. This eventually led to a trip to the vet where nothing was discovered. He's been drinking a lot more water. This led to another trip to the vet to be tested for kidney issues and/or diabetes. Again nothing was discovered. Recently he's been eating less and less. I fear another trip to the vet is in his near future.
This is what is called a "catnap." In our house one has to grab a few minutes of rest whenever one can in between bursts of guitar noise and little brothers pouncing on you. Peaceful moments are to be cherished.
The boyz's grandpa turned 90 years old this past week. Our family had to move my dad into an assisted living facility last winter after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Every time I visit my dad he still asks how the boyz are doing. The boyz and I send out a very happy birthday to their grandpa...
There's an old song called 'You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To' that's been covered by many artists. My favorite version is from the jazz singer Shelia Jordan. I think she might have been picturing this when she performed the song because Thompson sure fits the bill.
My siblings did a nice thing for my birthday. They gave me a gift certificate so I could buy the electric acoustic guitar I've been eyeing all summer. I ordered it and it supposed to be delivered today. They boyz might not agree it was such a nice thing my siblings did.
The boyz watched me officially turn 50 years old yesterday. I don't feel a day over 65. Diego-san helped celebrate by urping up his breakfast. Theo ran around like someone set his tail on fire. Thompson sat on my lap and purred away. In other words, for such a milestone day, it was much like any other day in our house.
