It’s been a pretty sad couple of weeks around here. First, Dad had to have my sister Ivy “put to sleep.” Mom explained that meant she died and went to heaven. Dad cried a lot and didn’t eat much all week. Then he got a phone call and was upset all over again because his father died. I only met his father once, so I wasn’t too sad. I stayed with my dad a lot to try to help him feel better.
Next thing I know, everyone is packing their bags and getting ready to leave town. I was excited at the prospect of a trip – I usually get to stay in a hotel and eat scrambled eggs in the morning. Then Mom starts explaining to me about my brother Andrew coming to stay with me, and I get real upset. No! I want to go! Riley noses in on the action and Mom tells him about Andrew and Connor coming and he gets all happy-like. Aghhhh! I want to go, I want to go, I want to gooooooooooooooo!!!!
