So sad...

Saturday, February 21, 2009

I'm sad to say that we had to put Sinatra to sleep today. My heart is broken. He was such a good boy. I will miss him terribly. Thankfully, we were able to be with him right until the end.
Here's a pic we took at the vet's office.
I love you big guy!

    Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that you had to put him to sleep. He sounded like such a wonderful dog. At least you know that he is no longer in pain and enjoying himself in doggie heaven. Love you!

    Debbe, I'm so very sorry to hear of Sinatra's passing. I hope you are doing ok, but I just can't imagine how tough this time is for you and your family. My thoughts are with you all.

    Oh, Debbe, I'm so sorry for your loss. I was a puddle when one of my dogs died last year. Let me know if I can do anything for you - I know it took me a long time to get it together after I lost her, so I do empathize.

    Oh Debbe, I am so sorry to hear about Sinatra. I do remember that you gave him two months longer to be with you and he was happy. At least you have all your pictures and your memories too. He will live on through those memories. How is your son handling it? My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family in this time. Try and focus on the extra time you had with him and I know you loved him a lifetime in that two months. Love Ya! emoticon

    Oh I'm so sorry hon! I know it's tough but you did everything for him and I know gave him a happy life full of love! *hugs*


From the silence of your pain I heard my name
and on the wings of light I have come
to see the sadness in your eyes
that cry without tears

Can you see me, I am here
I will always be near you
to calm your shattered heart
and to make you smile at the memories

Do you feel me, perhaps a soft brush of fur
You ache to believe it's real
but you are afraid to hope
You brush away a strand of hair
But it was I, whispering.....

I am only here for but a moment
The silver thread gently quivers
I will leave behind my love in a dream
When you awaken, and without really knowing why

Your heart will know at last
That it is all right, for now
to say good-bye

Just a reminder

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Hey everyone!

Today I had my annual mammogram. I thought I would remind all of my friends that, if you don't already have one scheduled, call and make and appointment.

I also had my first round of tests completed on my bladder. One more next week and, hopefully, I'll be able to start running again!

Have a great rest of the week!

Love ya

    Thank you for the reminder of the importance of mammograms. Everyone lives a busy life, and this is one of those things that can easily fall through the cracks. However, it is so crucial. Good luck resuming your run soon! emoticon

Happy Hump Day!

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

It's Wednesday. The tiredest day of the week for me. I couldn't move tonight. I sat on the couch and filled out names and forms for my kids. I watched 2 episodes of LOST because I missed it last week. I NEVER just sit on the couch and do nothing but I had to. Actually, I didn't "do nothing" I worked. What I meant was that I usually do my stepper and weights during my shows but I just had no energy tonight.

Hopefully, Dominic will not cough through the night and everyone will get a good night's sleep. He gets such a dry, hacking cough and it comes around mostly at night. I put vicks on his feet and neck, give him a cool mist humidifier in the room and cough meds (tonight I didn't they are useless) - we sent him to bed with a cough drop instead and dh stayed upstairs close by in case he fell asleep. So far, it's working. I put the humidifier right near his bed too. I'm going to bed now to try to get some good shut eye....nighty night!

    I hope your little guy is feeling better and you were all able to rest! I was just catching up on your blogs and the skating sounds like so much fun!

One more day. TGI almost F!

    The humidifier has definitely helped me recover from my cold. I hope it does the same for Dominic. What did you think of LOST? I love that show!

    You poor girl! You sound exhausted.

The weekend will be here soon, and maybe you can get some rest then.
I hope Dominic gets to feeling better soon!

For My Week 1 - Leslie Sansone Challenge

Sunday, February 08, 2009

Here's me wearing my red on Friday. It's amazing how many teachers and kids wore it. It's good to know that more and more people are becoming aware of women's heart risks and ways to keep healthy!

I'm posting late because we were in Ottawa all weekend. We had the best time. We skated 6 miles on the canal yesterday. We were wiped out. It was an interesting experience. There are little shops and and stops all along the way. It went by so fast it was amazing. My heart was pumping and I was sweating by the time we were done!

It was a great weekend with my brother, nephew and my brother's girlfriend -who I'm crossing my fingers will be a SIL soon. We'll see.

    Yay for a good weekend!

There were a lot of people that wore red on Friday at my work, but I don't have anything red that I can really wear at work...we're going to remedy THAT for next year, though! (And hopefully I'll be able to wear a considerable amount of a smaller size next year. ^_~)

I Wish You Enough

Friday, February 06, 2009

This is part of a chain letter I received. I thought it was very nice and wanted to share this portion of it with all my Sparkfriends!

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess .

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.


To all my friends , acquaintances and loved ones ,

emoticon emoticon emoticon
