Wow, how did we get here?
I can announce that I made it through last year’s resolution to purposefully walk at LEAST 2 miles each and every day of the year.
I’m proud of myself for that.
I OBVIOUSLY did NOT follow through with last year’s resolution to get back to blobbing on a regular basis.
I forgive myself for that.
2019 had a lot of ups and downs.
We spent the beginning of the year house hunting because of the distasteful neighbors. We never found just the right place although we traveled a lot of miles with a great realtor! As it turns out, the distasteful neighbors moved away (YAY!) ,so we remain here on The Hill. I hope our realtor forgives us!
(The NEW neighbors are GREAT!)
We welcomed a new Sassy Cat in April.
Meet Grandy, she was one sick girl and would have died had she not found her way to our house. She earned her moniker with the amount of her vet bills. She doesn’t always look this grumpy, this photo was taken right after her surgery.
Here’s a better one of her with George Baily back in July.
We said goodbye to Miss Kibbles in September
We also said good bye to our favorite Easter bunny, Sampson, in November. This photo was from happier days in April when the Crazy Dog family paid us a visit for Easter
The biggest shock came just before Christmas when we had to say our good-byes to Miss Miracle Monster.
She had been struggling with Cushing’s disease, had bad arthritis and chronic hoof abscesses due to her bad feet. We started her on regular pain management medications but she had a number of falls where she had a real hard time getting back up and on December 18th she fell twice, the second time she had decided that she was done trying and we made the decision to let her go.
The hardest thing is not hearing her whinny at me when I open the garage door every morning.
It was a relatively slow year with wildlife for me.
I rehabbed and released an opossum, a number of squirrels and these three bandits
I also lost a number of wild babies as well.
The company that Mr. C worked for decided to ‘spin off’ their jeans-wear division into it’s own company. Mr. C didn’t like the direction the new company was going so he decided to resign and take a new job. So he is starting a new chapter in his career in this new decade.
While 2019 had plenty of good times, I’m not sorry to see it go. We’re looking forward to our new beginnings here in 2020.
Let’s see if I can do better with last year’s resolution failure.
Happy 2020 everyone!
