Hello Again...It's Been A While!

Well, I'm embarrassed to admit it, but it's been over a year since our last blog entry. I guess we got caught up in the craze of FceBook and just blew off the blog scene. Not the best excuse but the truth! The last few months have been rather tough on my family. My sister Cathy, passed away very unexpectedly on March 16th. She was only 36 years old and suffered a fatal brain hemorrhage on March 10th. Just the day before, we had to put our golden retriever Bailey to sleep. He was 13 years old and it was really hard. Losing him and then my sister so close together was a shock and very hard. As always Deb was my biggest support through it all. She and her family have had their own troubles as well. Her brother Chris got into a bit of trouble which resulted in him and his wife divorcing and us taking their dog Todd since neither could keep him where they are now living. My sister had 2 dogs and a cat as well. My Mom has her dogs and Deb and I now have her cat Lucy. So, to make sure everyone is clear, we now have 2 dogs, Baxter and Todd and three, yes three, cats: Benjamin, Stella and Lucy. Our house is small but full of love when it comes to animals.
Deb and I went to Sanibel, FL for a few days of relaxation after Cathy passed and it was nice. We just went to the Glee concert in Indianapolis as well. We're planning at trip to Myrtle Beach with my Mom in September and while we're there, we're going to spread some of Cathy's ashes. Myrtle Beach was my sister's favorite place in the world to go so we thought it'd be nice for her to be there permanently. Can't guarantee we'll blog regularly but I'll try to do better. Take care!
