One of a Kind

I have one of the sweetest husbands on the face of this Earth. He may not be able to buy me expensive jewelry and take me to fancy restaurants but he always manages to surprise me. For the past couple of weeks I have been trying to guess what my Valentine's Day present was. He refused to tell me anything about it and he told me that if I asked anyone that he would call and cancel it! Since I hate surprises it was killing me to know what it was. I knew something was up when he kept asking me what days that I worked and who was working with me.

Saturday I was scheduled to work the front desk at work. It was completely crazy and I look up and see a big Sasquatch heading my way with flowers and chocolates! Chris sent Strike from the Northwest Arkansas Naturals to deliver flowers, chocolates, and tickets from him. To make matters worse I look up and co-worker was already ready to take pictures. Apparently some of my coworkers have known about this for weeks. Thanks Chris for being a wonderful husband, you are so thoughtful and I love you more everyday!

A few days ago our guinea pig Patches passed away. We noticed last Sunday that he was sneezing and wasn't feeling well. Tuesday morning Chris said that when he went to feed him he was all fluffed up and didn't want to be messed with. When I came home for lunch that day I went over to check on him. I noticed that he was very lethargic and decided to call the vet to make an appointment to get him in. When I went back over to him, he had moved over to his food dish and passed away shortly after that. He died in his favorite place.

We had him for 5 years and he lived 2 years without his friend Smokey. Patches loved Chris and loved sitting on Chris's shoulder and watching TV and eating carrots. It is always so hard to lose a pet. Patches will be greatly missed by us. May you rest in peace!
