Bon voyage!

Our cat story had an unfortunate end. On Tuesday I received a call from a woman who said she'd seen a Siamese cat that had been run over just in front of the girls' school, so Jesús went to check it out. He wasn't completely sure it was Coco so he took the dead cat to the vet to check if it had a microchip. Sadly, it was Coco, so we've had some rough days. I haven't felt much like blogging these days, but I do want to thank everyone who left comments on my last post.

Tomorrow we are leaving on vacation, so I won't be blogging much this month, but I'll try to stop in somewhere along the way. First we're off to Lyon to visit some friends, and then Paris where we'll spend four days at Disneyland (and I hope we'll see some of Paris besides; I mean Mickey Mouse is great, but I want the girls to see the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre at least). After that we'll continue on through Belgium and finally stop in Holland to visit my Mom. If I don't get any posts up there, then I'll be back in August, so have a happy July everyone and wish me a bon voyage.


  1. Buen viaje. Sorry to hear about Coco. I'll raise a glass to him when I'm in Pamplona this weekend.

  2. Theresa, I am so sorry to hear that about Coco. We were all hoping for the best for you.

    Bon voyage and enjoy what sounds like a wonderful vacation - we'll miss you.

  3. Saw your blog listed over at Dan's and thought I'd drop by. So sorry to read about Coco, I recently lost my german shepherd Heidi very suddenly so I have an idea how you might be feeling.
    I also have 2 cats (my first ones) and the one thing that bothers me the most is knowing when they go out there's a chance they may not come back. I hope your holiday helps you get over your sadness.

  4. Lo siento, amiga.

    I do hope you have a good vacation to help you get over the loss.

    Have fun!

  5. Dear Theresa and family, I hoped I wouldn't have to tell you how Coco's absence was also affecting all of us in Blogville...but this huge sadness has all of us feeling your loss. I bet you have many happy and funny things to recall and talk to each other about, concerning your beautiful seal point. Your wonderful vacation together is here at exactly the right time to help the healing. Hopefully within a short time you'll be thinking up names for a sweet new fuzzy member of your family.

    Theresa, if you'll have free hours in Holland and are near Amsterdam, remember Morgan is there. My e-mail is judyd@computan.on.ca and I could put your family and Morgan together for a quick visit if that was feasible. He is not available one day, next Tuesday. I'd give you his cell number if you e-mail me.

    Bon voyage friends.......Love, Judy

  6. i am SO sorry for your loss. i know you and your family are devastated, and may only be consoled by the fact that poor sweet Coco probably didn't suffer. (i hope that's the case) and that the loving memory of your cat will lead you to bring another furry four-legged friend into your home, when the time is right.

    that said, i'm confident you and your family will have a perfectly fabulous and happy time on your trip... Coco would have wanted it that way.

    stay safe/have FUN!! know that we'll miss you AND expect a FULL report upon your return. : ) xox

  7. Oh, darlin'. What heartbreak. I do wish you all the best (and much fun and healing) on your travels.

  8. Theresa, I am so sorry. That's just terrible. I hope you find some time to enjoy yourself during your vacation. I'm going on one myself next week.

    We'll all be here when you get back. Hugs.

  9. I'm so sorry dearest friend!
    :0( I know nothing really helps except for time. I would be heartbroken if anything happened to our cat Mooch.

    Have a tremendous vacation.
    A whole month without your visits will be tough, but I'll be waiting to hear all about your adventures!
    Take a ton of photos and post us a nice little slideshow. Especially of Paris!

    Be Well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Have an awesome trip! Wish I could go with!

  11. Very sad for you.

    I hope you have a great vacation though!

  12. We're missing you here in Blogland. Hope you and your family are well.

  13. Where are you when I neeeeeed you?
    Just when I make it into the top 10 over at diesels you aren't here to vote. I'm also up for review and my bestest bestest blog buddie is no where in sight. If it's one thing I can count on it's always been a visit and consistent commenting from you.
    As soon as you get back, I'll look forward to catching up!!!! :0) BTW,I hope you had a lovely trip!

  14. So... it's August now. (Fingers tapping...)

    Come back, we miss you!

  15. Sorry to hear about your kitty...care to stop over in the US? I have 4 strays I'm trying to find homes for... Hope the kids weren't too sad to enjoy their trip.

  16. Hi everyone! I'm finally back in blogland after 5,300 km. and more than a month without t.v., blog and e-mail. Looks like I have a lot of catching up to do. Thanks for all your supportive comments, you guys are great!
