First let me tell you, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth.
Where to begin...
Last week was not a fun one for me.
I was sick beginning on Sunday,
and Thursday night Bob...
although I know he was not happy at the time...
...because I waited until 10:30 at night..
He took me to our local country hospital.
About an hour later after being given a heated blanket
because I was freezing, taking my blood pressure twice
as the first time it was too high.
Slight fever, congestion and feeling out of it.
The cute young (intern) doctor who was attending,
told me I had bronchitis,
gave me a prescription and told me to get some rest.
I stayed home from work Friday to rest.
I'm still coughing, just not as bad.
I also was told by Bob that if I wanted to stay home
on the weekend and not work at the store...
that I needed to fill out a day off form...inside joke
as Bob calls himself the president of the store.
I'm just the part timer who works on weekends. LOL
My real job is a commercial loan officer at a major bank,
with a degree in business management.
I never did fill out the form.
While I was suppose to be resting on Friday,
I spent more time going back and forth from
the living room to the bath.
Not fun at all.
Then after going out to eat at a local restaurant,
we came home to our orange and white tabby kitty Tanner lying lifeless on our bedroom rug.
All day long I scratched his ears and the bottom of his chin,
as I made my way back and forth from the bathroom trips. He loved when you did that to him..
I even scratched his ears before we left that night.
We were only gone about an hour and a half and he passed on.
I miss that cat :-( He loved everyone that came to our home.
Tanner my orange and white tabby,
had many names.
He was definitely a big part of our family.
I miss my TANNER so much.
He was the first animal I brought into the house by the river. I buried my Cocker Spaniel just before I moved. I decided on another cat because my work commute was too far for a dog. Tanner was always there to greet me when I came home. He was my dog. I'm glad I was home Friday now, but it still hurts.
I just want you all to know that I have not forgotten you all. I have been reading up on my favorite blogging buddies, just not commenting.
