Thank You and Dominican Experience - Day Seven February 24th

I wanted to thank everyone for their outporing of hugs and condolences.  Your words of comfort are helping, I'm doing okay.  But that was so tough having to put down my first cat, in October of 1996 Todd and I moved out of our parents homes and into our first apartment.  Two days after moving in I went to "look" at cats in the pet store.  Well I immediately fell in love with this grey tabby who started purring like mad the moment I held him.  Oh yes it was love at first sight.  Deep down, I knew it was probably time, I had no clue it would be so hard and so upsetting.  I had a feeling it might be time, but nothing prepares you to sign on the dotted line.

I've had a rough week, three bad things have happend to me so I think I now deserve to win the lottery (I play with the ladies at work).  Last Tuesday I took my car into the dealer it wasn't "feeling right" when driving, Todd suspeced a front bearing.  One bearing, one windshield washer pump, one fog light, one break light, one rear windshield wiper blade, caliper and oil change later I was $700.00 ligher.  Then Saturday we had rain and woke up to about 2ft of snow on Sunday, when Todd went to warm up my car on Monday, the handle on the driver's side of my car broke!  Finally, there was loosing Cuddles.  All of this in the space of one Tuesday to the next.

I am on a roll with my D.R. reports and I need something to occupy my mind, I also want to get these wrapped up before I fly out to Arizona on Sautrday morning.

Our last full day in the D.R. was a day of 100% relaxation!  We went to the beach from 9am to 5pm!  White coral sands, palm trees, and azure oceans!  I'm just going to let the pictures do the talking.

Sooo sorry to hear about your kitty. That decision is a hard one to make and knowing it may be the "right" thing to do doesn't make it easier.

You're pictures are amazing ~ I love the crab!

What a great way to end your trip! I'm sure everyone had a blast on the beach.

I hope you're feeling a better. Losing a pet is very hard and all of that work on your car! You deserve a break after this.

So sorry you've had such an awful week and had to deal with the sadness of losing your kitty. I truly hope things look up for you soon.
Your last day looks absolutely stunning, those beaches are just the best I've ever seen.

Gosh, Dani, you really have had a hard week. I still miss my dear Shadow cat and it has been almost 4 years...they really settle deep inside our hearts, don't they?

Your pictures are gorgeous and I'm so glad you were able to relax on your final day there...

Wow, you've had an awful week! I hope you're feeling a little bit better now. Heading to see Kathy should take your mind off things for a bit.
Thanks for sharing your pictures. Such beauty in a land of such poverty!
