I must admit that a lot has been going on.....mostly wonderful.
In October (on Halloween actually) I found out my daughter, Jennie, and her husband, Tim, are expecting their first child in May. This announcement from my only child who told me "nope, never, ever, ever having kids". So I am THRILLED to become a grandmother. My new name is henceforth "Grannie Annie"!!
The next fabulous news was that my mom finally sold her house in Arkansas and moved to Albuquerque in March. She is all settled in at a beautiful retirement community and is so happy. Wednesday she went on an excursion and hiked three miles and today she is taking a yoga class. GO Mom!!
The only terribly sad event that happened this past Sunday is that our beloved 18 year old cat, Muffin, passed away. I was on my way home from visiting Jennie when she died in Ed's arms. She had been diabetic for over four years and we knew the end was approaching, but still....our hearts are breaking. We will always cherish the years we had with her. She was so special.
Happy Spring. Go plant something. (literally or figuratively.....no matter!!)
