It's been quite a week!!!

Oh I still can't believe that a week ago that life would turn upside down. It's been quite a week: losing sweet Jazzi, lightning struck our computer so we had to buy a new one.
I pulled my back and my hubby has a really really bad cold. But on the flip side, I had a great Birthday, Don and I celebrated or 38th anniversary on Friday and we're all hanging on here. I do believe things happen for a reason although we don't understand it right now.

Addi is missing her buddy. I find her sitting on Jazzi's lookout spot on the couch. She is looking for her. Addi is a toy playing dog and usually has them all over the place. She won't even play with the toys now. She lays on the kitchen floor waiting...for Jazzi. In the mornings, they would do zoomies around the DR table and of course Jazzi would be barking her head off. Lol. Yesterday morning Addi ran a couple laps of zoomies around the table. If you mention Jazzi's name, she perks right up and that tail wags about 87 times. I just wish that I could explain it to her ya know? Poor Addi!!!! I brought her home a bone and treats so she's a happy camper now.
I did get a card from Madi and Cecilia. It was so nice and it just made my day.
Here's the poem that was on the front, it is beautiful.
Thanks so much for the cards, e cards from many of you and emails too. I really appreciate them. I'm doing pretty good.

Ya know, seems like we used to sends cards a lot more along time ago. I'm the first to admit about how bad I am about it.....I have good intentions.  Lol. From now on, I want to be better at getting cards out when needed cuz it really is an encouragement.

Addi is sponsoring Jazzi's National Taco Day on Oct 4th. Jazzi would want us to go with it. I'm sure she's enjoying them even now ha! Addi will post this on Mon morning so check it out. There will be details and a special taco badge for you all.
Have a great weekend and everyone hug your dog/cat extra today.


  1. Happy 38th!!
    Happy birthday late too!!!!
    Still a shock that Our Jazzy is not with us here any more but she is with Bambi and Happy and Zoie and so many more and she is having a ball!!!

  2. As thaat song says - some days are diamonds and some days are stone. There will up and down days but over time things will get a little easier. Happy Anniversary

  3. The tone of your post sounds good, considering. We're glad you had a nice birthday and anniversary. Happy Day for each one of them! One thing is fur sure, the days will continue to pass and renew despite our sorrow. Hang in there and you are so right about the cards. We always have good intentions but lack on follow through . . .

    We KNOW that Addi misses Jazzi... we all do. BUTT doing Taco Day is a wonderful tribute to our girrrrrl.

  5. We miss Jazzi just as much as you do, Addi and we're very happy that you will be sponsoring National Taco Day. We're sure that Jazzi would approve.

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  6. Happy Anniversay and Happy Birthday too. That was a beautiful verse on the front of the card. Take care mates. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  7. Diana we are glad our card spoke to your heart. We wish we had a way to instantly heal your heart. In time may you think of Jazzi with a smile.
    Happy anniversary. That nasty summer cold went thru here too. I hope hubby is on the mend.
    Madi and cecilia

  8. Put it down on your calendar to get your tacos early-plan ahead. You won't want to do it on Oct 4 which is a Saturday and for eating them.

  9. We are glad to hear you had a Happy Birthday & Anniversary. We love what the card said.
    lots of hugs for you and Addi

  10. Happy anniversary. Sendin y'all and Addi some big hugs. And I'm lookin forward to Taco Day.

  11. Oh Poor Addi. I can't believe that so many people don't believe that dogs have feelings. I think they feel all the same emotions that people feel.

    I guess all my complaining to Norton Connect Safe about not being able to open Jazzi's blog because they rated it "Porn" finally paid off. After 6 emails to them saying that Jazzi was NOT a stripper/pole dancer, they finally gave my computer access again....YIPEE I bet Jazzi had something to do with that!

  12. Our Gemi was especially lost for weeks when our Loki died. It is sad when they mourn for their buddies. hugs to Addi and you! We look forward to National Taco Day.

  13. I hope you feel better and that things are getting a little bit easier. Poor Addi, it must be so confusing. Madi and Mom are so good at sending cards. They were so great when my husband was in the hospital. I am terrible at cards and keep saying I will improve. I hope I do, they are nice to get when you are feeling down.

    I just know Jazzi is eating at the 24 hour Taco Bell across the bridge with Remington and Leo.

    Anne and Sasha

  14. We know what you mean about sending cards, I went to Michael's yesterday and bought a box of cards...I'm really going to try and be better this year.

    Hang in there Diana...can't wait to read Addi's post on Monday!

  15. That is a beautiful card. Cecilia is so kind, but of course we already knew that.What a week it has been indeed for you. Good to hear you are hanging on in there and have been celebrating your anniversary.
    Bertie will be delighted to honour Jazzi's memory by celebrating National Taco day, especially if Addi is in charge!
    Cheers, Gail.

  16. Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday. The card from Maddie is beautiful. I agree that cards and noted make so much difference and so help a lot. x

  17. Poor Addi, wondering what's happening. It's fantastic having friends who can show their sympathy with you. We got a beautiful card from Madi, too when Daisy died. We always THINK of sending cards, but that's about as far as it goes.
