WHAT A DAY!
June 29, 2009 (Late) I am sad. Our rabbit, Hoppy, died. We have had him a little over two years. Okay...it is "just" a rabbit. He was the honey color of the story book rabbits. Melissa gave him to Adam shortly before Scott died. He was hardly a handful. He helped, in more ways than you can imagine, Craig's grief, over Scott. First of all, it was hard because it was a gift from Melissa, and she is gone. Second, it was Craig's outlet. He would baby that rabbit...talk to him, cry with him, etc. We would gather clover for him, I would give him lettuce and carrots, we would pet him, and, we would always talk to him. It is just another loss.....just a rabbit....but another loss. Adam buried him behind the barn with our other beloved pets. We knew he was not feeling well and we all got to "say our goodbyes". Sounds dumb, doesn't it? It was a rabbit!!!!! But, we will miss him/her. (we were never sure of the sex) Chris, my oldest son, is not feeling well. The doctor said his kidneys and liver are not working properly. He went for more blood tests today. I am very worried about him! I hope all is well! I do know he has an ulcer. Hopefully, that is the only thing wrong! Adam had to go to court this morning over some stupidity, on his part, from October 2008. It has been continued until August 4th. I am so tired of the court house. You, seriously, cannot imagine the hours I have spent there! (Not on my behalf!) Finally, my father-in-law, who has been on the outs with Adam since November 2008, called and wants his help, with the farm. Yea! Adam messed up his grandpa's truck. He (Adam) is responsible. His grandpa is really unforgiving. I have not even been able to invite him over for dinner because of the bad feelings. (Regardless, I can't have Adam feel uncomfortable in his own home.) It has been a mess! Anyway, this is a break through! Baby steps...... And so, life goes on...such as it is. I just don't get all the drama we humans create! It is all such nonsense in the big scheme of things! One more thing...another very human thing.....a very BIG company is interested in buying our business building in Springfield. I sure hope they buy it! We have been having to pay utilities, taxes, and insurance on it, regardless of it being empty. And, our former tenant owes us a lot of money!!! It would be a GREAT thing if this company would buy it. They are big enough they could just write a check! That would be such a load of our shoulders!
