Last night when we went to bed, Fluffy did not come kiss Ben goodnight.

He was missing when we went to bed and did not come drag his fluffy tail across our faces. I got up and called for him forever. He is missing.

I went to sleep thinking that he will be jumping on our bed in the morning.

Fluffy was still missing in the morning.

I am scared that a coyote, owl, or hawk got him.

I looked out on the highway this morning, but there were no flattened kitty bodies on the road.

The cats followed me into the woods while I was calling for him.

We searched the house completely.

I came back inside, just devastated.

Made latte for hubby. He made eggs for the dogs and fed them.

I went downstairs to clean up the kitty litter and give them more food.

I am overwhelmed with a guilty feeling because I had the flu for the last 2 days and did not want the cats stepping on me. Everything hurt. So I pushed him off me yesterday afternoon when he wanted to cuddle. I feel awful. That is my last memory of him.

Hubby helped me decipher some billing bookwork.

Then he left to go to the shop. So far his birthday sucks.

I wished him happy birthday this morning. KR did not call him yet, so I had to remind her.

I was not able to give him a cupcake or a present.


 The guys at the shop had gotten hubby a birthday cake for him yesterday. 

KR brought over a cupcake for Hubby's birthday

MAY 1 

Took Hubby to Fu-Ki for his belated birthday celebration

Dog Bathes Wednesday & Bookwork Thursday


Got up and made latte & breakfast sandwich for hubby.

He left and I started doing laundry, cleaning Ben's bedding.

Started a load of dishes.

Then loaded Bud & Ben into the Dodge at 8:30 and left. Picked up Beebo in Post Falls at KR's house. Drove to Jitterz in Post Falls to get a couple lattes, I had forgotten to bring water to drink.

Drove Seltice to CDA. They were already working on Seltice, tearing up the road for the $5million dollar renovation. Going east was 2-lane traffic at 25mph.

Dropped dogs off at Apryl's to get their bathes.

I dropped computer storage off at 765-TECH to have Ty fix them.

I drove home.

I could not find my Jeep keys with the house key on them, so had to crawl thru the Doggy door.

At home, did more laundry. Wilson was CRYING the entire time because he missed Ben & Bud.

I vacuumed upstairs in the loft.

At 3:00, I left to go pick up the dogs.

Got there at 3:45 because of slow traffic. People STOPPING and parking at the Roundabouts instead of driving thru!

Paid for dogs and loaded them into the Dodge. Drove to Post Falls and dropped off Beebo.

Drove home with Bud & Ben.

Picked up the mail.

Bud & Ben were happy to be home.

I hurt all day today. Was very, very tired. Did not get any sleep last night because hubby snored all night. I got up at Midnight to pee and then could not get back to sleep. I worked on bookwork instead. Then went to bed at 4AM and got 2 hours sleep.

Hubby came home late tonight after working 2 hours at shop.

We watched Archer & Fargo, then went to bed.

By this afternoon, I was not feeling good. Had body aches, pains, cold chills. Thought I was coming down with flu.

Hubby made eggs for dogs. I made lattes and fed cats Tuna.

We took dogs in the grey Dodge for walk in the park at 10AM, it was sunny but cold.
Some idiot parked next to us on the trail and was going for a bike ride. Hubby thought he was leaning the bike on our truck!

Came back and dropped dogs off.

Took Jeep to Spokane to see KR compete in Empire Classic Fitness Expo. Tickets were $13 each! OMG.

Parked our Jeep in a really good spot, all automated on the phone, call 1-888 number, pay & then text your license plate number! Wow.

We watched KR & recorded video for her. She Deadlifted 3x. The last one was too heavy for her and she could not pick it up. However, she still got the GOLD in her weight class.


At around 3PM, we were hungry and took her to Rocky Roccco's to have pizza & salad.

Came back and waited around until 5PM when our car parking expired. We left.
Some homeless man was peeing in the bushes next to our car when we came out.

We took dogs for walk in park at 10AM. We walked down by the frisbee area. Hubby realized we did not have a current year pass for the grey Dodge, so we cannot take that truck down there anymore. Will have to take Dually.

Went back home, cleaned up around house.

Took Jeep down to KR's to get her. We drove to Costco and Walmart. Washed the Jeep; it was dirty right afterwards because of the dirt & dust in the air.
