The Bed is Empty

The extra bed in Ella's room is officially empty -- for exactly one week. Then Sarah arrives. My mom and sister left this afternoon on a 4 day trek back to Michigan. It was very hard to see them go. Babcia spoiled us rotten while she was here -- she cooked, cleaned, took us shopping, and played and played with Ella.

We also said good-bye to a furry friend today. Our cat, Violet, is on her way back to Michigan to live with grandma and grandpa. It was a hard decision, but 3 cats is too much. Violet and my mom have a special bond -- that cat LOVES my mother! Vi is never happier than when my mom is here visiting because of all the attention she receives. I know she'll be supremely happy and spoiled rotten with my parents. But I'll still miss her.

4 Thoughts From Others:

I like how Ella's last picture with Babcia includes a cookie!

Oh Vi....I'm sure that was not an easy decision for you. I know how much you have gone through with Violet. Your mom will spoil her rotten! What a sad day though

Is Vi going to have to learn to survive outside in frigid Michigan? And what about the fact that your sister is leaving and not returning? Sorry, Michelle - overlooked by the cat. :)

Violet is strictly an indoor cat. So she can lie in front of the fire all winter long!

And the returning part (or not) is still up in the air until August. :)
