Invisible No More

Hello Luvs, 
I am very excited to share with you that I got word today that the people at "Invisible No More" TV have chosen my video to be a "feature video" for their channel ( please visit their channel at:  http://www.youtube.com/user/invisiblenomoretv?blend=8&ob=5). It's a channel to get the "word" out about Chronic Pain and invisible disabilities. It's about "Looking Fine and Healthy on the outside but having chronic pain & invisible disabilities on the inside. Here is a slightly longer yet similar version of the video that they chose. They told me that they did choose my video in hopes that it will help others persevere and overcome their invisible disabilities! This is a  7 minute video:

Matilda...Tilly....Boo Boo....We LOVE YOU!


Hi Luvs!!
This is just a re-cap of the "re-homing" event of a few weeks ago...or ...no....only one week and a half ago..! Wow...time goes by so slow when you miss someone that you love so much. We've been in contact with Taylor, "Our Tilly's" new mommy. Now her "Tilly"/"Boo Boo" ..and she is very happy. She has been chattering back and forth with Averi, their other African Grey! I am going to try and post some pics and the video she posted today of Tilly talking up a storm this morning at their home. 
  Tilly also has a new "night time" cage in a bi level cage with Averi on top and her on bottom. They are separate but can hear and talk to each other...This "night" cage is supposed to be in a quiet room so they can get better sleep. This family has 5 dogs so they do need their rest listening to all of that , I'm sure ha ha...But Tilly seems very happy and we are so so very glad for her. I wish we could have somehow made it work, because Amy and I have cried every day that Tilly's been gone. The house is so empty without her talking and chattering. Especially when no one else is home, she kept me company; as I am in pain 24/7 and she was my comfort during the day when everyone was gone. I wanted to keep her so badly. I cannot take care of the huge cage and the huge bird all by myself and Amy tried but with graduate school and 3 jobs it just isn't fair and wasn't fair to Tilly...Thank you for enjoying this re-homing "event" story...I thought you'd like the update! bye for now..see you soon...suzanne
********************************************
This is "Taylor" and she is the one who came to take "Tilly" to Her house in Indiana! It Was truly "love at first sight"....Tilly Loved her Amy & then she also was infatuated with the other bird, Averi. She felt comfortable because she saw another like herself, I believe...Then she stepped up on Taylor like they'd known each other all of their lives...a very happy new beginning for Matilda...while a bittersweet ending for us....We love you Tilly!!! I think of you every day and so does your first "Mommy/Amy"...She still cries and is sad because she misses you...but she is happy that you are so happy and that you will never be lonely because you also now have "Averi" !!!

Amy's 23rd Birthday!!

H
MOMMA'S  GIRL!!! 2 Peas in a POD!!

WE ARE FAMILY!!!!
Amy and her "DAD" on her 23rd Birthday!!! We BOTH Love you Sweetie!!
SHE'S 23 TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Luvs,
Just a few words but more pictures...because...of course this is my "Picture" Blog; after all. This year our Amy turned 23 years old!! What an honorable young woman she's turned out to be. We are so proud of her accomplishments. At 23 years old, she is just the most kind, thoughtful, smart,nice person, daughter and BFF ever in my life! Not only has she gone to University for almost six years now and will be graduating with "HONORS" in May 2012, with a Masters in Library and Information Technology. Every bit of her College has been paid for by her performance and her achievement of straight A's since day #1!!!! She's gotten full scholarships on merit and academic performance since her first year and all the way through this May 2012 when she will graduate.
   We are very close and I feel so lucky to have her in my life in this way. We have a friendship and trust unlike I've ever experienced before. To Celebrate her graduation, just her and I are going to visit Arizona (if finances are going OK, considering how the economy is at that point...you know what I mean?). We went one other time, just the two of us and had such a wonderful trip for four days and nights. It was so memorable and so much fun; that this is what she wants to do again for this graduation. I can only say that I love her with all of my heart and I'm so proud of her. She lives at home and is working three PLA (Public Library Assistant) jobs part - time and is going to school full time also. She is still carrying a 4.0 as far as her grades are going and she has made so many wonderful friends during her employment at these locations. She's a busy young woman but we manage at least once or twice per week to have  an outing together. We talk...we laugh...we have fun...and most of all; we LOVE EACH-OTHER!  I love her enough to let her go too! When she's ready we will help her move out and do whatever she wants to do in her life...and believe me, with all of her accomplishments she'll have many choices!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU SWEET PEA!!!

Hello all...

Just a few pictures for my picture blog of the week! I try to put pictures up here whenever something of interest occurs. This weekend we said "goodbye" to our Tilly, Matilda, "Boo-Boo"...our little CAG Parrot....our African Grey who's been with us for about 11 months.  Amy works three jobs and is in graduate school. Craig works full time and really doesn't want much to do with a bird as far as the "work" goes...He loved her and talked to her and petted her...but that's about as far as he wanted to go. I am disabled and just could not scrape the cage every Saturday and scrub and do all of the things necessary to make and keep her a happy girlie. I wanted to keep her with all of my heart. I was her "grammy"...but she was Amy's responsibility and Amy's bird/baby and it was 100% up to her. She waited 6 months talking and emailing back and forth with a girl named "Taylor" in Indiana; before finally relenting to re-homing Matilda to her and her home of 5 dogs and another African Grey named "Averi", who will be Tilly's "sister".
  Word is that they are getting along famously and Tilly is stepping up for all of the family and giving kisses. She is putting her head down to be petted often and talking up a storm just as she did here in our home. We taught her to say "Hi Boo Boo" and "Aflack" and told her "What does an Owl say?" and she would say "OOOOoooo OOOoooo"....and a few other little things like whistles and stuff. She was a great friend and family member who will be missed and was loved a great deal...Remember that she was loved "ENOUGH" to let her go to a better place where she would be happier with more people and another sissy bird!....love to all and blessings..Suzanne xo
