I've had a really rough day today.
I put my smiles on as big as possible to drop my daughter off to her first day of Grade 2, and my son to his first day of "morning school," but when I got home I had to make a very difficult decision regarding my beautiful, 16-year-old cat, Maaarge.
And now I'm sitting here trying to prepare myself for my daughter's arrival home for lunch. My husband is picking her up, but I have to gather the strength to feed her lunch, talk to her about our loss of Maaarge, and deliver her back to Grade 2.
SO, aren't you glad you stopped by here today? I promise I'll get happy soon. Maaarge prepared us for this in her own way several months ago. We're very lucky to have had her as long as we did.
In the meantime, I was looking through all my celebrity photos today — trying to gather the strength to share something with you — and this photo (above) of Amy Poehler, 40, and her sons, Archibald, almost 4, and Abel, 2, made me smile.
They went shopping together and picked up some birthday balloons. Amy even took a moment to face little Abel toward the cameras...
More later, promise. It feels good to share fun stuff and get my mind off today's events. Thank you for that....
