I acquired Gabbie from my son's classmates parents who couldn't keep her anymore and I said that I would find a home for her and they said they only wanted me to keep her. That was fifteen years ago. At that time I had already been owned by a green cheek conure and a sun conure. My husband said yes and Gabbie was ours!.

GabGab,Gabriell- e

Dusky-Headed Conure

peanuts in shell, animal crackers, grapes,pomagran- ites,pasta,anyt- hing that she can get.

she loves to hang out on her playgym in the bird room and in her sleeping box in the t.v. room and under mom's shirt.

She does not like her brother sun conure Kallie,because he always tries to attack her for no reason at all. And she can't stand getting her beak dremmeled down.

I get love all day long and I get to go out on the warm summer days in our stroller, I get homecooked meals warm in the winter and a cage to myself and playgym to stay out on all day long when mom is home. I love to snuggle under her shirt or clothes which I just love.

She gets up early in the a.m. and starts yelling "hello, Hello" and she won't poop in the cage at all..

If you yell hello loud enough you will get what you want..

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~~
Mom was gone for nearly 3 hours today! It's only 35 minutes down to Jennifer's dads house but Jennifer and Ian wanted to go to half price books in Olympia. They were having a half price sale and Jennifer is trying to replace some books she has lost over the years. It was fun and mom bought 9 books and a shopping bag for only $4!
Mom and Ian dropped Jennifer off at her dads and then headed home. Mom hadn't eaten at all so they stopped at Sizzler's and had the salad bar lunch. Mom likes the salad bar since she can get things she doesn't usually buy for salad at home. Mom likes beets and no one else does. She enjoyed it!
I didn't do many notes today because it was time for mom to get some sleep by the time she got home.
It is still very hot but the bedroom is staying fairly cool so I am doing okay
The sun is just now going down so the booms are starting. They are pretty far in the distance and Merlin and I don't seem to react to them so that's good!
Mom is hoping tomorrow will be a quiet day. We have laundry to get done and mom needs to mop the dining room and kitchen! My play cage needs to be cleaned too!!
It's story time so come perch with me! I am so happy that you and I get to spend this special time together everyday! It is my most favorite time of the day!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It is still hot here! We are not use to this. It really is not horrible since we have the A/C hooked up.
Ian is working tonight and mom has to leave in a few minutes to pick him up. Then she will have to head off to work. I am going to read the story for us but mom will post it in the morning! There just wasn't enough time today!
Tomorrow she is going to drive Jennifer down to her dad's. She doesn't know if she will have to go back on Sunday or Monday and pick her up. It depends on who comes over to visit her dad.
Mom got a new area rug today and it looks very nice. Merlin thinks that mom got it just for him!hahahaha She really needs to find one of those carpet covered boxes so that he will have something to scratch on! He is such a cat!
Come and perch with me sweetie! I have been waiting all day to spend some time with you!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
Goodness it was so hot today! They said it would be in the 80's but by 5pm it was 98. The portable A/C is plugged in and Ian and Jennifer have been in the living room all evening! It's fun to have them out here while I get my notes done!
Mom goes back to work tonight and is not thrilled about it. She does get overtime for the 4th so it will be nice to have more money. Still, she would prefer to stay home with me.
We worked on the linen closet again today. Mom found Mandy's bandanas and washed them. She'll donate them to the Goodwill. Mandy loved wearing scarves! She would prance around when she had one on and knew she looked so cute!
Tomorrow we will continue with it and take the pile of boxes Ian had in there out to the compactor. Mom taped them together so she could get them out there.
She never made it to the market so she'll just pick stuff up before she comes home. She is going to get a new area rug too since they will be half off tomorrow. We had to get rid of the last one because of the accidents Mandy. Merlin scratched the edges too. Mom and dad were talking about buying one of those boxes that is covered with carpet and see if they can get him to play with that!
It is story time so come perch with me! I am so looking forward to it!
Remember that I love you sweetie!

  Hello Gabbie~
It was a pretty nice day. Mom was on on the phone for a long time. It was nice to talk to her friends and sister but it took up a lot of time so we didn't as much done as we wanted to!
We will try to get stuff done tomorrow before mom has to go to work. We did manage to get one bathroom cleaned and the kitchen too!
We feel so badly for Anthony! He must see the worst of the worst. There are people at mom's store who will eat stuff while they are shopping and just throw the leftovers and packages everywhere. Mom once found chicken bones in a drawer of one of the display dressers. The worst was fishing bait that someone put in a backpack. It smelled horrible and it took mom and one of the freight guys a long time to find it. I do not understand why some people are so self centered that they do not think about how their actions are going to effect other people. Just like with our compactor here at the complex. It is really not difficult at all to close the door and yet they don't do it! The maintenance guy thinks that someone who lives in the building across from the compactor is opening it so they don't have to hear it run at night.
Your mom is so sweet! Mom feels bad that your mom was crying because of her. Mom is doing better but after having Mandy for so many years it's just going to take a long time to get use to her not being her! I know your mom felt the same way about you and Mario. I'm sure she must have walked into a room, many times, and expected you to be there. With time our new normal will feel normal. Does that make sense??
It is time for us to enjoy a story together. Mom got a nice big stack of books for us to read so come perch with me. You have no idea how much it means to me to have you with me every night! I know that I am one blessed Amazon to have you next to me!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It was an okay day here. Mom came home and we cleaned out more things from the closet. She took 5 trash bags over to the compactor. She only takes trash over during the day because after the maintenance guys goes home people do not close the door on the compactor. Instead of the next person doing it, they just start piling their trash bags outside the compactor. The poor maintenance guy has to clean it up every morning. Mom doesn't understand what is so hard about closing the door so the compactor will run!
We got a beautiful card from the vets office today. It made mom cry. They sent us a copy of the Rainbow Bridge poem so of course mom started to cry over that too! It was very thoughtful of them but perhaps mom needed to wait a few more days before reading it! Mom is okay!
No fireworks going off tonight and no tree kitty today! It figures since mom is off tonight and didn't need to sleep this afternoon!hehehehehehe Ian will be home with us on the 4th since mom will have to be to work at 11pm. We stay light up here til nearly 10pm so people don't start doing the fireworks until then. Merlin and I don't really get scared by them but mom will leave the radio on anyway!
It's still hot here and going to get hotter as the week goes on. Dad called from Nevada today and said it was over 100! He is on his way to Montana. Dad doesn't like Montana much! He always says nothing good happens in Montana! He broke down there once during winter and was stuck there for days! I can understand why he doesn't like Montana!
It is nearly time for our story so come on over! I love to have you perch with me and share a bedtime story! It really is such a special time of the day for me!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It was another sunny and warm day here. It cools off nicely at night so it really isn't all that bad. It is suppose to be very warm for the rest of the week but we have a portable A/C so if it gets too hot in here mom will set that up.
Mom had to go to the market today cause there wasn't much left to eat in the house. Mom is so use to going on Fridays that she hasn't gotten much the last week. She has tonight and then we will have our weekend. She will pick some things up at her store before she comes home so she doesn't has to worry about going out again.
Merlin got locked up while she was gone and made a huge fuss when she got home. He is just fine in the bedroom since mom puts his food and water in there with him! I stayed in the play cage and took a nap!
Mom's coworker who lost her sister was back to work yesterday. Mom had already done most of her work because mom thought she was going to be out for a while. She told mom she would take the time off when the funeral is held since that is always the hardest.
Tree Kitty did not show up today so Merlin wasn't howling and waking mom up. Hopefully the people will keep it in the house where it belongs! They must have to spend a lot of money on flea control so you would think they would just keep the cat in!! Silly people!
It is time for our story so come and perch with me! It's a silly story tonight but it's the last book we have until mom gets to the library tomorrow! It will still be wonderful just to be with you!!
Remember that I love you so very much now and always!

  Hello Gabbie~
It was another warm day here and the clouds rolled in also. I didn't think it felt so bad. There was a nice breeze and with the fan on it felt comfortable in the house.
Mom and I didn't do too much today since she was tired. Ian had to work. Mom and I got the kitchen cleaned up and then I spend some time ripping up newspaper. We washed some towels and mom is going to turn the dryer on when she leaves for work.
There were people in the pool so I watched them for a while. It's funny but there are not as many people on Sundays for some reason.
It is time for our story so come perch with me. I am so looking forward to seeing you! This is my most favorite time of the day.
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It was another hot day here and tomorrow is going to be the same. It really doesn't feel bad in the house and we just use fans. Mom told Ian he could drag out the portable A/C if he got hot but he didn't.
The tree kitty was back and Merlin was making a horrible noise and woke mom up again! The cat just howls for a bit and then climbs up on the roof. Mom really wishes the people would just keep it in the house.
Mom got Ian to work this morning and then took Jennifer to her dads. I stayed in the play cage and Merlin was locked in the bedroom. Mom moved his food and water in there. She was only gone a little over an hour so it wasn't bad. There were lots of people out on the roads today so it took a bit longer to get down there. Jennifer's stepmom is flying back to Florida on Friday so it's nice that Jennifer will get to spend some time with her before she goes. She is a very nice lady! Still strange that her dad lives here and her stepmom lives in Florida!!
It's time for our story so come perch with me. I love having you close and spending time with you! You may live on the bridge but you and I will always be friends no matter what! I know how very blessed I am to have you in my life!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
It was very hot here today but it didn't really feel so bad in the house. All those trees outside my bedroom window really help keep it cool.
We didn't do a lot today. Jennifer didn't have to go to work so mom and I did some cooking this afternoon. Ian worked until 4pm and after mom picked him up she went to bed. Merlin was howling in the window again and then I started yelling too! I have had my snack now and Merlin has had dinner so we are both being quiet! Mom had to go to work so us being quiet isn't really helping her any!Hahahahahaha
Mom has nothing to do at work tonight. They schedule the work when the price changers are suppose to be there so when mom gets scheduled on the days they are suppose to be off, there isn't any work to do! Mom is going to do some store audits since the auditor has to take an extra day off next week because of the 4th. Mom will be working but since it's on a Saturday, she knew she would be. She gets overtime so it's fine with her!
I think Jennifer is going to visit her dad tomorrow. Ian has to be to work at 9am and then mom will drive Jennifer down to her dad's. I'll probably have to stay in the night cage just to keep me safe until mom gets back. It's only 35 minutes each way so it won't be bad!
It's time for our story so come and perch with me!!
I love you so very much and look forward to spending time with you everyday! I am such a blessed bird to have you in my life!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
You kindness and prayers mean so much to us! I know it will get a little better each day. We will miss her forever but mom won't be thinking about her all the time. We will remember the fun times and all the love we shared.
Merlin has decided to be my best friend! He wants to sleep in front of my play cage like Mandy did but I got down and tried to bite him! Mom says this will not do at all! When she went to pick up Jennifer she locked him in the bedroom while dad was taking a nap! He means well and just misses Mandy like the rest of us!
We did a bit of rearranging today. Mom is trying to keep busy and to make things a bit different around here since we are going to have to find our new normal.
I know that your mom misses you and Mario so much! I don't think that will ever change. I know we will miss Mandy forever too. I don't think that love ever dies and those we love will always be part of who we are. I can not thank you enough for watching out for Mandy. She really is the sweetest dog ever.
I got to watch Jurassic Park tonight and it was wonderful. I think it is so cool we have ancestors who were so scary! I can't wait to see the new movie when it comes out on DVD.
It is nearly time for our story so come and perch with me! I look forward to this time of the day so much

It was a quiet day around here. Mom is tired and didn't really feel like doing much. It is so strange not to have Mandy here.
Mom left work early since she was done with her work. She was dreading coming home the first day without Mandy waiting by the door for her. She figured that if she came earlier it would be easier. Merlin was actually waiting by the door for her! She has no idea how he knew she would be home early. It was nice that Merlin was there and made it easier for mom.
When mom got home yesterday morning Merlin was cuddled up next to Mandy with his head on her shoulder. He knew it was time. It was very surprising! Today he spent a lot of time looking for her. He has been velcro kitty today!
It will all get better as time goes on but for right now it's so weird to not have her here.
Thank you for your prayers and for all the love you sent our way. We appreciate is so very much. I know that Mandy will be safe and happy with you up there and that someday we will see her again!
It's nearly story time so come perch with me! I can't wait to spend some time with you!

  Hello Gabbie~~
Your families prayers make us feel so much better! Mandy will be coming to the Rainbow Bridge today so keep an eye out for her. I suppose the cats and dogs are in a different section but since Mandy thinks birds are just another kind of dog, I'm sure she will come to visit.
She quit eating and had more seizures so it's time. Mom does not want her in pain and she cries when she has the seizure. She and I have been together for 17 years so it is going to seem very strange around here without her. Mom says we have been very blessed because her life expectancy was 12 years and we got to have her in our lives for 17.
I will chat with you later!

Mom had another really busy day!! I think it's because dad is here and wants to go all over the place!!hehehehehe
Mom drove dad over to Tacoma to get his truck and it took so long. It's not very far away but there is construction on the freeway and lots of extra people going to see the US Open in Chambers Bay. Dad forgot about the US Open.
Mom got home and got lunch for everyone and then took Ian to work. Mom has to leave in a few minutes and Ian is getting a ride home with a friends who lives nearby.
Once again we will do our story tomorrow morning. We hate not being able to do it now! Come and perch with me and we can spend some time together. I love being able to have this time with you everyday!

It was another busy day! Mom,dad and Ian had to go out for a while and then by the time they got home mom had to get to bed. I am going to read us the story tonight and then mom will post it in the morning. She has to go pick Ian up and then head off to work.
Dad's truck is fixed so he and mom will go get it tomorrow. He is going to bring it here so that he can load all his stuff before he leaves. Not sure where he is going yet but he'll find out tomorrow. He got to stay home for a long time so it was sort of like a mini vacation for him!

  Hello Sweet Gabbie~
Ian came out of the bathroom this morning and he had shaved his head!!! I let out a very loud "wooger" and got onto my corner perch. He was bald on the top and decided he would just shave off the hair and see if he likes it that way. He says it will grow back if he doesn't! It sure was a shock to me but I started laughing when he came to say hello to me! Ian has been losing his hair for a few years and says he is going to go bald anyway. Mom told him only the top would be bald, just like her brothers!
The lady downstairs from us has a very old cat. She says it has dementia now and won't come in the house. It sits under my bedroom window and howls which gets Merlin up there and he starts howling too! Last evening Merlin was up there howling and dad said he would get him. He called to mom and said she had to see this! Mom looks out the window and there is an orange cat in my tree! It's not the one from downstairs. The cat kept climbing higher to get to Merlin so mom took Merlin out of the room and told the cat to get down. It climbed all the way to the top of the tree and got on the roof! It went to the other side of the building and climbed down.
Mom has seen the cat before and really doesn't like that the people let it out. There are lots of wild birds outside and since that cat is not afraid of heights, it needs to be kept inside so it can't get the birds! We live on a 6 lane road so it's not safe for the cat either! Sometimes Humans are so dumb! There was a little black bird sitting on the other side of the tree and it looked kind of shocked to see a cat in a tree!
Mom has some cooking to do and then she'll take Jennifer to work. We are not sure if dad is leaving today or not. I think he would like to stay home longer but it's already been double the normal time. Mom has to remember to pay dad's medical insurance since he was off for an entire week. If he doesn't get a paycheck during a particular week, he has to pay for his medical insurance! Not a big deal!
I will see you tonight for another fun story! You know I can not wait to have you perched with me! It really is my most favorite time of the day!
Remember that I love you Gabbie and I know how very blessed I am to have you in my life!

  Hello Gabbie~~
Well mom got the drawers in the kitchen straightened out and put new liner in. Everyone just throws stuff in there so mom had a pile of stuff that had to be put back where it belongs. She did have to stop to take Jennifer and Ian to work. She stopped at Walmart after she dropped Ian off since it's just on the other side of the mall. She needed more shelf liner and cat food. When she got home she found a bag with candy, tea and Ivory soap in it that was not ours! She called Walmart and told them what was in the bag so if someone came looking for it they would know what happened. She told them she could not bring it back until this evening and they said it was fine. She took it with her when she went to pick Ian up and returned it.
Mom was hoping to get more done today. Dad decided to give Mandy a bath but could not do it on his own so mom helped with that. Mandy was pretty good about it and didn't seem to get all stressed out this time. Of course when her bath was done, mom had to scrub out the tub! Don't want it to smell like wet dog!hehehehe
It is nearly time for our story so come and perch with me! I found a really cute book for us tonight!

It was a bit calmer around here today. Mom is still tired and did not get much done. Dad is still here since they are still working on his truck. They did not even get it into the shop until last night. He was suppose to leave on Monday!! It's nice that he got to spend a few more days here.
We had pizza for dinner and it was good. Mom made a really nice lunch with baked mac and cheese and some long green beans. SHe shared with me and Mandy since dad and Ian were both taking a nap! Don't know why they were napping.
Mom has to get the kitchen cleaned up and then clean up the rug again. Mandy tries but she sometimes pees off the end of the pads so mom has to clean it up. She likes to do it at night since no one will be walking on it until it dries.
We will probably continue with drawer and closet cleaning tomorrow. It's fun to see all the stuff in the drawers! Mom says we really do have way too much stuff that we never use!
I will see you for our story very soon. I love to perch with you and feel your wings against my cheek! It really is my most favorite time of the day!

It was another crazy day around here! Mom is off tomorrow and the next night so things will get caught up then! I still have a book with me and we can still read it together!
It was another warm day here and the breeze sure did feel good. I watched the kids in the pool for a while but other than that it was boring! Mom had more running around to do but we still had time together.
Mandy is doing okay today. Mom finally figured out that it was not a seizure but muscle spasms. That is expected. Mom massaged her legs and she was okay. Mom does exercises with Mandy to help the muscles and now that she knows what to look for we are hoping we can avoid the spasms!
Remember that I love you dear Gabbie!

It sure was a crazy day. Mandy had a seizure last night while mom was at work and dad took care of her. He didn't understand at first but he figured it out.
I wish mom had more time so I could leave a longer note but I will be back tomorrow to chat!

Another busy day! We are doing laundry and there is lots of it! Mom had to rerun the dishwasher too since dad put a big bowl in the bottom and it covered up the spray. No big deal.
Dad just took Ian to work. They went out earlier and got Subway sandwiches and filled the car up with gas. Dad said he put 19.3 gallons in and it only holds 20! Mom knew it was empty but the gas station is just across the street so she knew she could make it.
Jennifer is off at her dad's this weekend so it's just me, mom, Mandy and Merlin for a little while! Mom is about ready to head off to bed once she switches out the laundry that is in the washer and folds the towels from the dryer. I tried to help her hang up her clothes but she said a parrot hanging from a hanger was not really any help! She said we could play with hangers tomorrow!
Tomorrow mom is going to go use the gift card dad gave her for Christmas. He keeps going on about how old her clothes are and that so many of them have holes! I am responsible for some of those holes!hehehehehehe Mom just isn't into clothes shopping but dad seemed like his feeling were hurt because she still has the gift card 6 months later, so mom will go find some new jeans and maybe a shirt. She needs new shoes too but hates shopping for them even more! You always have to worry about how they are going to feel after you have worn them for a while! Maybe Ross will have everything she needs and then she won't have to go anywhere else!
I will see you tonight for our story! I can't wait!!
Remember how much I love you now and always sweet Gabbie! I am so very blessed to have you in my life!

  Hello Gabbie~~
It was such a busy day! It usually is on Fridays since mom is off and has to get marketing done. She took Ian to work and then came home and cleaned the fridge. She likes to do that before she goes to get more food. She hope she can figure out what we need that way!
She took Jennifer to work and then she and dad went to the store. It's really not such a good idea to go shopping with dad. He tends to throw stuff in the cart and doesn't bother to check prices. Mom had to put several things back and grab something less expensive!hehehehehe
When she got back she put the groceries away and then cleaned the carpets. She had to go pick Ian up and did some cooking after that. Then it was time to go get Jennifer! I just wanted to sit around with her today and do nothing!!
Jennifer's sister came up and picked her up to take her down to her dads. He gets out of the hospital tomorrow so that is a good thing!
Tonight we got some quiet time together and I really enjoyed it. Tomorrow we have laundry to get done but I don't think mom has to go anywhere so that will be nice!
It's nearly story time and I am looking forward to seeing you perched on my shoulder!
Remember that I love you so very much!

  Hello Gabbie~~
I am late tonight because mom, Ian and Jennifer went to see Jurassic World. They really loved it and I can't wait for it to come out on DVD so I can watch it too! Mom said there is clicker training in there just like they do with birds! Well, we are related to dinosaurs, or so they say! I can see it!
Dad didn't want to go but then he rarely goes to the movies. He likes to watch them at home so he can pause them when he wants! He does want to go see one called The Martian. He read the book and really liked it.
Mom had to do some running around this morning and then finally got a nap this afternoon. I went with her and played in my night cage. Mandy was sleeping on her blanket and Merlin was sleeping on the bed. It was nice that we were all together. I don't know what is planned for tomorrow but mom says she really needs to go to the market. I just hope she is not gone for too long.
It's time for our story so come and perch with me! I've been waiting all day for this time to get her and can't wait to see you!
Remember always that I feel so blessed to have you as my friend! I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie~
I just got to say Hello to Jennifer's sister Trisha! She and Jennifer went down to see their dad tonight. He is doing pretty well and will get to go home sometime this weekend. He is still in pain but he is doing better! I haven't seen her for a whole year so it was nice!
Today mom had to go out for a while and I stayed with dad. It was pretty boring. Mom wasn't gone for very long and then we had to rush to get the carpet clean. I went into the night cage and did lots of yelling!! At least it's moms "Friday" so she can get some sleep tomorrow hopefully!
It is time to read our story so come on over! I can't wait to perch with you and tell you about my day!
Remember that I love you so very much!

It was another warm day here. I enjoyed it. Dad got home around 3 and started in on his laundry. He didn't do any for a while. He told mom he got busy but he always brings home lots of laundry.
George and Gracie pulled their filter out and now there are bits of charcoal on the bottom of the tank. It won't hurt them but now mom will have to clean them out again tomorrow! They are such silly turtles!
It is story time so come and perch with me! I have a cute one tonight!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie~
Oh it sound like you liked water better than I do. Mom mists me off sometimes but I prefer to decide when it's time for a shower. I took one today too. I was suppose to be supervising the turtles while mom cleaned their tank but I just felt like a shower! You should have seen the cat run for cover!hehehehe
It was warm here so I suppose I just wanted to cool off.
Mom cleaned the bathrooms today so I had to be in the living room while she did her bathroom and in my night cage when she did the other one! She uses soft scrub and it's stinky so I have to stay out of the way until the stink goes away!!
It's time for our story so come and perch with me! I just can't wait a moment longer!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie~
It is that time again! I have a very goofy story for us tonight! I know it's going to make us all laugh.
Quiet day around here but that was nice. Mom had to go buy more carpet soap because she forgot it! She and dad had to do a conference call with the bank because mom paid a medical bill for dad and they deducted it 4 times! It's a joint account but dad is the one listed for online banking so they wouldn't let mom take care of it on her own. It was all very silly and took much too long to take care of! They reversed 2 of the payments and dad will have to call the doctor's office on Monday to get the other one reversed.
Come perch with me and I'll read you this story! I can't wait to see you!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello Gabbie~~
I had a lovely day yelling at the kids in the pool. They were playing a game called Marco Polo and I yelled right along with them! I was quite for a while but now I'm being loud again. Ian has been walking in and out and I have to yell when he comes in the room! It's my job you know!hehehehehehe
It was a lovely day here and mom wasn't gone for too long. She had to go to the bank. Dad got a refund from the emergency room he went to last month. He paid them while he was there and since the insurance picked up most of the cost they sent him a refund. He had a $6 check from a class action lawsuit that expired in 120 days. That would be tomorrow! It's only$6 but still dad should be better about opening his mail!
It is nearly time for our story so come perch with me. You know it is my most favorite time of the day and I just love spending time with you, Dixie and the other angels. You are all so very special to me and I hope you know you will never, ever be forgotten!
Remember that I love you so very much!

I had a fun day but now the best part is about to begin! Story time with you!
Mom got this book thinking it would be fun and it is, but a little strange too! I think it's a good story! You never know when you get a book whether it will be epic or strange! I hope you enjoy it anyway! Come on over! I can't wait to spend some time with you!

Yes! It's me finally! Mom and I both feel awful for not getting over here more often. We usually don't get many notes done anymore. It just got too busy around here!
Mom worked really hard yesterday and got everything cleaned up. We still have the closets to finish but we will work on those a little bit at a time.
Tomorrow mom has to drive Jennifer down to her dad's again. He is having his surgery on Tuesday and Jennifer's grandparents, aunt and step mother are flying in tomorrow. It will be nice for Jennifer to see them. Mom wishes she could just spend one weekend at home but she understands that Jennifer wants to be with her family.
Please remember that I love you sweetie and I cherish our story time together every night! I have been so blessed to have you as my friend and you mean so very much to me!

  Hello Gabbie~~
We had a pretty nice day! Mom went and got her tires and it only took 45 minutes. They didn't say it needed an alignment so I guess that's good news. The battery is only 1 1/2 years old so she had another 2 1/2 years before she'll have to replace that. The dash has been broken for a long time but that is a very expensive fix and it does not affect the driving so she'll get that done when she can.
Mandy kept me company while mom was gone. She stopped by the market and got more raspberry turnover to bake. They are so very yummy!
We are keeping Shiloh in our prayers. We hope she gets better soon. We didn't know she was going to have to have a second surgery. That is awful! When does she have to have that done? She sure has been through a lot. We really do hope she stays with your mom next time. It's not good to be feeling bad and be all alone.
It's awesome that your mom went over to help with the bills. They still have to be paid whether you can go out or not! Mom does most of ours online now.
I will be ready for our story in just a little while so come on down! I cherish this time of the day and love being able to spend the time with you and Dixie and Divo and Gizmo!! I hope Mario will want to come too! We sure do miss him!
Remember that I love you so very much!

I asked mom to come over here first today since we always seem to run out of time these days. Mandy is doing okay but there is so much cleaning to be done because of her. She can not help it and mom is trying to figure out ways to make it easier on all of us.
Mandy is eating well and still spends the day with us. She has taken to sleeping right in front of my play cage! She sleeps a lot but she is still here with us. She still comes with mom to get me out of the night cage in the morning. You know it's going to be very hard to lose her. We've been together nearly her whole life.
I don't understand why Shiloh didn't just come and stay with your mom. I guess she is use to being independent but when you have surgery you have to know that you are going to need help. I'm sure it's hard on Shiloh not to be able to go out and do things. It won't be too long before she is healed up and back to her life.
Nana is amazing! The 8 towels for a bath is funny! That is a lot of towels. I imagine she got a bath chair. They make it so much safer to use the shower. We wash towels a couple of times a week because Ian has allergies and only uses a towel once. Mom just got him some new ones that went on clearance at her work. She keeps all the old ones to use for Mandy and to make a pathway when she cleans the carpet so they all have to be washed too! Mom usually puts them in when she goes to work and Ian puts them in the dryer before he goes to bed.
Mom still has a bit of a cough but is feeling much better. She will be off Tuesday night and Wednesday night this week. There is another ad for the weekend and the weekly ad is big this week too. Mom is still doing the bed and bath department in addition to her own departments because the new person does not start until the 28th. She is from the apparel department and a very nice girl. Mom thinks she will do a good job and told her that she didn't need to worry because they would all help her.
I know it must have been heartbreaking for you mom and dad to bury Mario. They know he is safe up on the bridge with you but their hearts are still going to be hurting for a while. I am so happy that he is right there with you because I know you will take excellent care of him!!
I will see you at story time! It is my most favorite time of the day and I just love spending time with you and Dixie. I truly am so very blessed to have you in my life!
Remember that I love you now and always!

  Hello my Sweet Gabbie~
We have some time tonight so I told mom I just had to get over here and chat with you. It wasn't a bad day. Mom is trying to get the pantry straightened out since everyone just throws stuff in there. Dad was looking for the sugar shaker so he moved stuff all over the place! It was right in front of him but he never looked up to see it! Mom told him there were 2 boxes of sugar cubes that he could use for his coffee!

We really do keep Anthony in our prayers. So many things are changing and we know how difficult it is to find a good job. The store mom works at is doing all sorts of changes and some people ended up having to switch positions because they put new conditions on the jobs they had! Some of these people had been doing the job for nearly 20 years but then the company added requirements that those people did not meet. That is just not right but the employers have all the power now since there are still so many people looking for jobs We know Anthony will find something and we hope it's great pay and something he will be happy doing!

Dad and mom disagree about when to let Mandy go. Dad thinks because she can't walk well anymore that they should do it now but the vet told mom that Mandy would stop eating and then it would be time. So far she is eating really well and still manages to drag herself over to mom all the time. Dad told mom she was spending most of her time taking care of Mandy but mom said that was her choice. Dad thinks mom is in denial but that's not true. Mandy is in the end stage of the disease now so mom knows that she hasn't much time yet. She is not in pain and still alert and still eating so it's not time yet.

Dad has to go back on the road tomorrow so I'm helping mom get all the laundry done. They went to eat dinner at Shari's cafe tonight and brought home a key lime pie. I didn't like it but they enjoyed it.

Mom only has tonight and then she goes back to work. She is going to fix it so that she gets 2 days off in a row next week. They won't be her usual days but it will still be 2 in a row. Just having one means not much gets done around here! We are together tonight and ready to enjoy a story so I will see you soon!

Remember that I love you now and always!
