The end of an era

Laura and Steve left for Colorado on Conference Saturday. It was something I had not looked forward to. It's just the way it is, and I certainly don't blame them-- it's a new phase I guess. I've had the awesome blessing of being great friends with my little bud Jack. He brings so much happiness to this home. The aunts and uncles adore him and gma and gpa can not get enough of him. He is such a joy and a doll. When he came at Christmas time, I put little white Christmas lights on my headboard of the bed. When he would come over to visit after Christmas time, he felt it his duty to go turn the lights on and he often asked to go play games on my phone in my bed. I know he won't remember these times, but I will. We would watch the movie about the snowman, the all music one so we have sometimes would watch that with him even after Christmas. It will just be different. I can't get another cat.... what am I going to do?


Last week Davids company had a conference up at Sundance. He had a room to himself and a kingsize bed. Since it's only about 40 min away, I went up for two evenings. Though they had very little snow, even on the mountain, the air smelled so great and fresh up there. We had a snapping fire in the fireplace and watched movies. I invited the boys to come up and have dinner with me, but after looking at the menu on line, they werent impressed and we went to Applebys before I met Dave for the night.
It is a great perk of working for a company based else where! I just took one picture from the bed with many awesome feather pillows while I read. It was great
