Our son turned 26 in March and was awaiting the birth of his first child. His life was about to change forever and for the better.
Our daughter, Allie completed her art course at Algonquin College
May 20th our first grandchild was born. Riley June Steckly was to join our family, make parents out of our son and his fiance and become the apple of my eye.
I said goodbye to my beloved Maggie on May 24th.
The end of May, I high-fived Mr. JT himself, James Taylor. I am his #1 groupie. I almost fainted in the aisle.
I turned another year older in June but we won't talk about that.
August brought another birthday celebration for my daughter, Jess.
Gary turned 56 in September and made the decision to retire by 2011.
I sold my dog biscuit business in October.
"hey, there goes that cat-lady"
November brought another birthday celebration for my daughter, Allie. She also moved out with her two cats and our second car.
And then it was December and it was full-speed ahead with my Just-Cats Cat-sitting Service. The month ended with our celebration of our 30 years of marriage.
I enjoyed 365 walks with my favorite dog, Kane.
So, there have been tears, sadness, a new birth, children getting older & moving on, anniversaries & the gumption to finally make a business out of my love for cats that has brought me to the end of this year.
"20ll....Oh, we have plans for you"
Happy New Year to all my blogging friends and thank-you for your friendship in 2010. Now, go give your furry-one a hug.
