Dad's here!


Saturday, February 02, 2013

My dad has arrived in Glasgow!!!!! It's been nearly three years since I last saw him, which is a long time, but it felt like not a minute had passed when I saw him walk into the arrivals hall at the airport today. He's trying to sleep off a little bit of the jetlag just now, but for lunch I gave him some of my "checkerboard chili" from the SP Cookbook with a bit of quinoa to soak it all up. He loved it! It's such a blessing that both of my parents are really into healthy eating - it makes it much easier when they come to visit us.

We received some sad and very poorly-timed news about one of our cats last night. He's got a fatal infection (FIP) and there's no hope for a cure. So even though he's not even two years old, he's probably in the final stage of his life. I can't even think about that right now, it's too sad. We haven't broken the news to the boys yet...I'm not quite sure how we'll do that. We just said goodbye to one cat two years ago and we weren't expecting to bid another cat farewell so soon. I'm trying to press on, enjoy Dad's visit and not get too upset about this, especially since we've done everything we can do for the moment. Poor kitty. He's been such a great family pet, I'll be so sad to see him go.

    You parents sound delightful. I'm glad you are getting to visit with him.

I am so sorry about your kitty. I have had problems with losing pets way too early as well. My heart goes out to you. emoticon
