Waffles Missing

This morning, all we could think about Waffles and how he was out there somewhere in the cold. All day at work I was trying to focus, but I couldn’t I kept thinking about Waffles and where he was, and if he was even alive! I followed my brother-in-law’s Facebook page for updates and comments. It broke my heart to see his missing poster.

Drew and I kept checking Facebook throughout the day to see if there were any updates. I couldn’t focus at work. I had to sit on on meeting and take the minutes. I was asked how my weekend was, and I said it was good up until yesterday. I told them about Waffles. I was frazzled and emotional.

The faculty member said that I think you have a good excuse to not be here today in this meeting. I said, are you sure, I can take the minutes. She said no it’s fine we can manage. I said, thank you and I got up and left. I typically try harder to not let my emotions get the best of me, but this one was hitting me hard.

At the end of the day, I saw a post, that said someone saw paw prints by Waldameer and Sara’s campground. After work, I called some businesses in that area. Everything is closed for the season, or no one answers the phone. I did manage to get a hold of someone and I alerted her about Waffles and if she could please call me and let me know if she sees any prints around the area.  I texted my brother-in-law and he was thankful that I was trying to reach out.  He said he would keep me posted, and I promised to keep him posted if I were to hear anything.

We all were expecting the worse, except for my mother-in-law she was hoping for a miracle.

Tommy’s Last Day in Pennsylvania

This morning, we woke up around 9am. I didn’t get a good sleep. Her mattress is the old mattress that Megan brought with her, when she first moved in with Tommy. We went downstairs and his dad made us breakfast. Tommy was at base.

After breakfast, we got showers. Megan, my mother-in-law, and I all want to Ulta. His mom at 61 in credit to spend, so she was splitting it among Megan and me. I decided to get another brush head for my Mia cleanser. I am not using it as often as I should, because I haven’t really had a reason to, not working and all. The head should be replaced every three months, and they are not cheap at all.

After Ulta, we went home and relaxed until Megan’s parents came over. Andrew’s dad made dinner for all of us; steak, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, onions, and ice cream cake for dessert. We eat and drink so well when we are all together.

After dinner, Megan and Tommy got cleaned up for more friends to come over. I think 20-15 people were there from Tommy’s unit. It was awesome to meet them all. Everyone was drinking. It was great.  We had so much fun. I was tired, and couldn’t party. We didn’t go to bed until 12am-1am.
