One of those crappy weeks

Phew. We had a bad week. I'm so glad this week is over. I'm ready to spend some time with the family!

We started on Monday with the death of one of our two gerbils, Houdini. She and her sister Coppefield have been in our family for two years. Sweet, little things. They belonged to my middlest, but truly, they belonged to us all. Poor Coppefield has been sad and sleeping the entire week. We all pretty much feel the same.

She was so adorable!
To compound our sadness, we woke up on Wednesday to find the last guppy gone. Just disappeared. It wasn't on the floor, or in the filter. So strange! It was the only fish in the tank, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't eaten. We tried to convince our youngest that it went on a trip to visit its mom, but I don't think he's buying it. He's been tearing up every so often the entire week. Sigh.
Bad photo. But alas, the only photo of the two guppies. The yellow one is Jamie who died a few days after we got him. The orange one is Bobby, who disappeared on Wednesday.
So now, we are down to two pets. And they better not croak on us anytime soon!

Off to a, hopefully, much better weekend! Hope you have a good one too.

so weird that the fish just disappeared! my condolences...that's way too much circle-of-life stuff for one family to deal with in such a short time :(

I'd send you a dog....sorry. So weird about the mysterious disappearance. Hope everyone's feeling a bit better...can you replace a gerbil in CA?
