The big reveal - please vote for me!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This week is looking pretty tame so far and I'm glad...definitely need some down time:) Yet, something very sad happened this morning as I was outside looking for Nemo (seriously, he must have a girlfriend somewhere as I can never find him). A beautiful cat, just like Nemo's colorings had passed away beside my garage. I was so in shock when I first found him/her! I thought it was Nemo until I saw the paws. I don't know what happened and I feel so sad about this. I'm thinking it might have been hit by a car and ran into my car to hide (like cats do). I'm going to call the SPCA and see what I should do as it may have died from something other than being hit by a car. It had my heart beating so fast and I am still shaken and saddened by it. There was no collar on him/her and I didn't want to touch the poor thing. I need to grab a pair of gloves and see if there is a tattoo! And of course I still couldn't find Nemo at this time so that had me freaked right out. Luckily he came in minutes later:)

Ryan then had "the talk" with me saying he isn't going to be around forever and I don't want you to get crazy when that time comes. I hit him and started to cry!! Geesh! He's one to talk though! He would be crying right along with me...but shhh don't tell him I told you so:)

Okay I think it's time to move on to something a bit more joyful for the day, don't you think?
