I was looking through some photos tonight and saw a few of myself with my book, A New Job for Dilly. It occurred to me that I never took any with Lemur Troops & Critter Groups, so I decided to take a few tonight. I posted it on the Critter Groups page on Facebook too. Yep, silly self-portraits, what can I say. Whenever Rick takes my picture, he always makes me laugh and I end up looking even more stupid than usual. Not that I don't look stupid here. Totally stupid. I figured half of my face was better than all of it.
I love this book. I've had it sitting on my bedside table for awhile, but I've been hesitant to pick it up these past few weeks. The page with the cats features my kitty Belle, and my girl's cat along with Nikki's cat. I was afraid I'd lose it if I looked at that particular page and saw Belle again. I finally did today and I'm okay, but damn, I miss her so much. She was ALWAYS in my bedroom and it just feels so empty. She always slept on me too and I really miss that. The slideshow I made of her really puts it into perspective when I realize just how long she had been in our lives. My girls were tiny when we got her and now they're all grown up. It feels like a lifetime, and yet, it also feels like just yesterday. It just isn't the same without her here.
Anyway, it's late and I don't have much to say other than whining about missing my kitty. I wish she were still here with me. CJ too. All I can do is hope and pray that they're together again and waiting for me. I loved it when Bish said that CJ and Belle are comparing notes right now. I sure hope that's the case. And to Nikki -- thank you for including Belle in our book. I didn't realize how important that was going to be to me back when you first suggested it, but it means so much to me now. Thank you.
