So two weeks ago our cat went missing. He was gone for six days. We thought for sure he was dead, because he always comes home at night and it was super cold the week he was gone. To our surprise he came home!! I was so happy I cried (hey he's part of the family). I noticed that his back leg was all messed up he would just drag it when he walked. I thought he got hit by a car or something. So the next day I took him to the vet. The Dr. said he was pretty sure that our cat was caught in a trap. Can you imagine having your leg caught in a trap for six days in -3 degree weather, with no food or water? It just broke my heart. He ended up having to get his leg cut off. He is doing a little better. I wish I could find the person who sets traps out, so I could tell them what I think of them.

This picture was taken eight years ago. We had only been married a little over a month, we were living in a crappy trailer in Pocatello. And we had just recently found out that I was pregnant.

Okay, so I was not going to do a post for a while, but today I just couldn't stop thinking of my husband. Lee and I had a really tough start on our life together. We got married really young I was 19 he was 20. We had no money. Lee worked at a Chinese restaurant washing dishes,and I was pregnant and always sick so I did not work for more than a few hours a day at a home health place. I remember that we had a jar full of change and anytime we needed to go to the store, we would always have to count out our change. It was rough and to make it all the worse Lee and I pretty much fought non stop for the first few years of our marriage. Looking back on it I will honestly say that I really never thought we would make it. I know a lot of the fighting was my fault. The first two years of our marriage were honestly some of the hardest times in my whole life. But I wouldn't change them for a second. Going through that with Lee has only made me love him more. Him and Mason are the best things that have ever happened to me. I'm getting so choked up as I write this, because I have been so blessed to be Lee's wife. I am so glad that we have stuck by eachother through the trials that we have received. I do not regret one single day I've spent with Lee. Even though we still fight now and again, we have come so far and made so much progress. So thanks to my amazing husband for all the bad times and for all the good times. I will love you forever.
