I keep hoping that 2009 will turn my families bad luck/curse around that has been hanging over us for some time now. My kids are doing well, thank God! My daughter is doing better, even though they don't have a clear reason why she keeps getting sick. She is on a few meds and they seem to be helping. She made three whole school days last week.
We have had a fairly nice three day weekend, until my husband found our bunny dead this evening. Yes, the one in my photo! We got him in September as a rescued angora rabbit from a 4-H friend. He was lovely and loved us. He was huge, fluffy, and fun! I will admit that I am not the biggest animal lover. Not that I don't like animals, but I don't have the energy to care for them with five kids. I fell in love with this rabbit, Nimby, as soon as we got him here. I didn't mind getting covered in fluff when I held him, or having to check on him in the cold to make sure he had water that wasn't frozen. I took him scraps on a regular basis, and loved to just go out and say "hi" to my friend. He was only one year old. I will miss my friend!
On to a new day, hopefully with the sun shining.
