I have been looking at all the wonderful and the interesting changes with the site. It is amazing!
So much has happened for me. Not at all good I am sad to say.. On top of ill family members my precious baby
Kai got very sick. She had 4 murmurs in her heart and was in a tremendous amount of pain and I had to put her
down a week ago today! I have to say that my heart is devastingly broken. Funny how we don't think about life
without them until they are gone... she was only eight years old and I thought we had lots of time together.
I have not been interested in working on my Sims or doing much of anything for a while.
Hopefully, Writing to you wonderful folks will get me into the swing of things.
I plan to read some of the over 600 messages in my box and add a little cheer to my life.

Renee,

I am so sad to hear about Kai. Stopping by is a good thing to do because so many of our members completely understand how heartbroken you are right now and will offer the kind words you need.

We missed you.

Hi Renee, I totally understand your pain about Kai. I lost my parrot a few months ago and I still miss her.
We noticed your absence and we were all concerned about you. You can be sure that we are all very happy to have you around again.
Even if you don't have energy for the sims, we would just love your company.

Thanks so much for the kind words. Each day gets a tad better for me!
I have decided that I need something warm & cuddly to to keep me on an even keel. I am looking into Guinea pigs. I plan to get 2. Maybe in a week or so. I use to have a very chubby hamster years ago.
I am reading up on them... they are so lovable.
Hope all of you are doing well. I still need to catch up on the messages. I want to see everyone's wonderful pieces.
I will be back! Love you guys!!!

I'm sad about your loss.
Both guinea pigs and hamsters are nice animals. But hamsters are more night animals we had Russian mini hamsters who were very cute they even had children.

Hello, Muchas gracias for all the support. I was doing fine this morning till I found an old treat Kai had hidden in the couch cushion. A good cry and I am better.
Hopefully this w/e I will get into my game.. It will be a great distraction.
Anita, Do you plan to get another pet?
Enjoy this day! It will be a bit chilly 99 in Phoenix today!

Hi Renee, not another parrot no. They tend to get very old, and then I would not have someone to take care of it.
But I still have a dog, Chelsea and two cats, one is 15 years old and the baby now about three months. Love them to bits.

Thanks for the kind words guys, Yes, she was my heart and now its all in tiny pieces. I plan to keep this tiny pic of us.
I find it comforting.

All of my spider plants are having babies. Some of them have 15 - 20 babies hanging down. It is my favorite plant.I once had the perfect spider plant in my game. Lost it along the wayside. Have a wonderful day all of you!

Hi Sammy, I would love to send you a cutting... each of my spiders has 15-20 babies. it took me so long to find a female and when I did! Amazing!!. Takes my mind to better places.
I can't wait to see your talents in The Sims. I just pale to all of you.
It has been so long I need to go over the game once again.
My mind feels like a sieve. ttyl

OOOoooo, Renee...

...I miss my spider plants!

How do you think they'd do in Minnesota? (I'm moving there at the end of July...)

Hugs to you <3

Would you like us to hunt you down some ts2 spider plants?

I am feeling so warm & fuzzy with all this fabulous warmth and support from all of you!
I looked at the game for a bit and it seemed so overwhelming. So, I said maybe another day.
I have some household chores to do first. I do want to look at my message. I think I will go through 20 per day to catch up.
Suzanne, Thanks! I think that I have the ts2 spider somewhere. I hope so anyway. I know I need to weed through tons of stuff.
Sammy, I have not tried to do much of any creating in all these years but, I will add it to my list of things to do. Off to do some housework! Love you all!

Renee it's always so good to see you back here. I know what it is to suffer, and sometimes it's difficult to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

It sounds like you are on the road to healing, there's no need to rush, your inspiration for the Sims and other things will gradually return.

I wish you all the very best sunflowers12

Renee, welcome back. I missed you being around.
I'm so sorry about Kai. I lost my Labrador, Milo, over a year ago. He had cancer of the spleen and I was heartbroken when we had him put to sleep. It takes time to recover, they become such a huge part of our lives and we really feel the loss.
I agree with Lorry, don't rush, just take your time to heal.
It does get better, and I am now getting TWO puppies in September! Double trouble.
Great to see you back :girlie5:

Renee so good to see you around here again.. you know that your little forum family is
always waiting for you. I am so sorry to read about your loss .. Like Lisa said - the pets are such a great part of our lifes and it needs time to heal our broken hearts when we lost our little ones.
Take good care of yourself Renee consol1

I'm sorry to have missed your return to CBS, Renee, and on such sad terms, too. Losing a beloved pet is like losing a family member. I think having some piggies (of the guinea variety) will really help to lighten your mood but by no means replace Kai. I've barely had my game open at all this year, myself. My computer has crashed twice now and it seems to be affected by my game when I do try to load it so I'm only using it for browsing online now. 

Hope to see you around the board more soon! Its always a pleasure to chat.  hugss

Two puppies, Tilly!!! Now that indeed sounds like a lot of trouble..... can just imagine the mischief the two can get into.
But please do tell more! What breed and why two?
