Kids lost first pet

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Today has been emotional rough for me. When I woke this morning, I found that my son's fish, blubby died sometime overnight. I was a mess, I knew she was ill but had been trying to help her, but was not successful. I did not want to tell the kids before school this morning, so I got myself together and hoped that they would not notice. They did not but I spent most of the day wondering how I was going to tell the kids that the fish had died. I picked the kids up from the bus, and told them that we would need to go home to talk. By the time we got home, the kids had figured out what I wanted to tell them and they were both in tears. We spent a good 25-30 minutes crying and hugging and crying and hugging some more. I got the kids focused on homework and a snack to distract them , so they could get themselves together.

The kids know that the fish is now in heaven with my grandmother and they want to bury the fish in the backyard, so we will be doing that tomorrow, for it was raining this evening and too wet outside to try to dig a hole and bury the fish.

I never imagined it would be this difficult to tell my kids that the fish had died. We knew she was ill but it was not easy. I don't think I will be able to handle when something happens to one of our cats which we have had for over 13 years now. One of the things the kids kept saying was "we still have them" as they kept hugging and petting the cats.

WOW, what an emotional day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I feel your pain. We lost our first dog right before Christmas and our fish a few weeks ago.

    Oh, how sad. It's never easy to go through this.
I remember every pet I have lost over the years, even fish I had as a kid.
I hope tomorrow is a little better for you and the kids.

OK...I know that back in November I said I wanted to see some snow this winter, however, this is a bit crazy. I wanted 1 nice snow storm, which we got back in December. I did not want to get this much snow. Not only do we now have 28 inches on the ground but they are calling for an additional 10-20 inches tomorrow. I am officially done with snow for this winter. I am so ready for spring. Mother Nature, you can stop this snow at any time.

Sometimes, it is better to watch what you wish for because you may get more than you want. I know I did. The only benefit to all this snow is that shoveling snow is excellent exercise. It burns lots of calories.

Merry Christmas

Thursday, December 24, 2009

I am going to have a great Christmas this year. I am getting the best present in the world. I am going to get to spend Christmas Day with both my parents. My parents divorced when I was 12 years old and have had to divide my time between them. After my husband and I had our kids, we decided we would spend Christmas at home, and our families could decided when they wanted to visit for Christmas. Well this year, for the first time in 27 years, I get to spend Christmas Day with both my parents. I am so excited. This is going to be a very special Christmas.


Dec 5, 2009 Let it Snow

Saturday, December 05, 2009

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....well as much as I have been wanting it to snow...I did not want it to snow today. We had planned to celebrate my daughter's birthday with family today. Well with the snow we had to cancel her party because all of the family lives more than an hour away. So, I guess we will have to have several mini borthday celebrations with the family based upon when they can come visit. She will still open our presents and have cake today but it will be just the 4 of us.

Time to enjoy the snow. Looking like we are going to get 2-5 inches, when it stops, we can go outside to play in the snow.
