          Uh sissy, I’s thought we were gonna take a walk down memory lane furst? What exactly is memory lane?  


We are Raena. And it just means remembering the past. Fur instance, last year at this time, we were worried that we were gonna be out on the streets befur the furst of the year. With the suppurrt of our furiends and God’s help, we kept our apartment. Of course, the problems weren’t over.  


Dezi lays on small perch




          Nope sissy, we had to recertify our lease early and purrpare fur a tempurrary move to a motel while our apartment underwent refurberations. And, mommy’s mommy died. Fanky fanks to our furiends, we were able to go and pay our respects and get mommy some closure. And then, our air conditioner caught fire and sent us to the motel even sooner than expected.

Yeah Raena, fankfully we didn’t have to stay in the heat without a/c fur long. But, all the stress and movin’ wasn’t good fur mommy, and her legs and feet swelled up like balloons. Fanks to a few furiends, mommy got some compression stockings that have continued to help her with the swelling problems.

          Those things are amazing aren’t they sissy? Anyways, mine’s birthday got overshadowed by all the goings on, so you and mommy threw me the bestest ever pawrty fur mine’s gotchaday. And, all our furiends came and made it so much better.

It was a great pawrty Raena. And then came time to move back to our newly refurbished apartment. The movers practically destroyed everything they touched. We’ll be dealin’ with that fur some time to come.  


Dezi lays on step




          Oh sissy, yeah that wasn’t good. It still stresses mommy out. But, we were Blest to be able to go on a mini trip and visit with some of our pawsum furiends in flesh to fur. ‘Course the apartment manager can’t be happy unless she’s tryin’ to make our existence miserable, so we were served with a third recertification notice fur the year.   


Curious Raena lays atop boxes




True Raena, but with prayers from our furiends and grace from God, we were able to prove that recertification was unjust and nothing more than harassment. Just in time fur a nice visit from another furiend in the fur to flesh. Course, that meant me’s birthday got overlooked in the pawrty depawrtment.

          We wanna fanky fank all of you fur joinin’ us. No matter what may be going on around you or to you, Blessings can be found. We purray God sends many more Blessings your way next year. We also wanna fanky fank awnty Vonda fur the green papers and awnty Susan as well. Awnty Susan also sent mommy some unmentionables, so fanky fank you fur those as well. We don’t mention it cuz they only happen once a year, but mommy had to buy car tags and pay our magic jack bill this month. Those are expected bills, but they only occur once a year. Since it takes everything we have each month just to get by, the addition of these bills can be really overwhelming fur mommy. So we really ‘purreciate the help.
