Well, I definitely wanted to see some changes in 2015, and it has delivered and….it isn’t over yet.
So far in the last 9 months, I have lost a car that I had for 11 1/2 years, bought a new (to me) one, sold a trailer I’ve had for 9 years, and bought a replacement one and sold that one within a few weeks. (I’m still working on the replacement of the replacement). It’s taken a while, but I’ve finally narrowed it down, and keeping fingers crossed that all goes well.
Additionally, I have retired Chewbacca due to lameness, and am pondering what my 2016 horse year might look like, or if I will drive or show at all. We’ll just have to see about that.
I am also very heartbroken to say that just a week ago, our cat Wasabi, who we also had for 11 1/2 years, passed away.
We acquired our beautiful boy through a rescue when he was just a year old. He was a loving, although sometimes pissy, opinionated cat with a perfect combination of sweet, playful, and troublemaker to be charming and naughty all at once, but ultra loveable always. He was a lap cat, who loved physical contact with us, and was the most outgoing of all the cats, the first one to greet anyone who came to the door or stopped over for a visit. Wasabi was prim and proper, regal, and he would howl endlessly at night sometimes. He definitely let you know he was part Siamese. He was there through an 800 mile move, and 4 new feline additions to the house, and 2 dogs. Wasabi was the big brother to them all, pleasantly supervising over everyone from his favorite spots up on the cat trees near the ceiling. Wasabi had a sudden, massive collapse of health, and within 2 weeks he went from “something isn’t quite right” to crossing over. We don’t know what was wrong, as numerous tests all came back normal; we can only assume he had major cancer of some kind, although there were no tumors. He will be forever missed. He left a huge hole in our hearts.
It was a hard loss, and yet another major change that 2015 had to offer. I’m hoping to still make more major changes as 2015 winds down and 2016 starts up, so we’ll see what happens!
You’ll also notice some changes to the blog appearance, too, as it was long overdue.
Have a wonderful day!
