Today was the day! I’ve been thinking and dreaming about it for about a year now. I’ve been in the pet store many times to pick up dog food for Bella. I’ve looked and admired them. One time, almost got one, because she was so beautiful. Rebecca hates birds!!
But today was the day! The little blue and white parakeets touched my heart. The one with the beautiful white crown had to be mine. I looked into her eyes and knew I needed her. Of course, she needed a friend, so I decided on the another one with a blue crown with a little white spot.
I went back and forth. I shouldn’t spend the money. It’s not the right time. Rebecca hates birds!!! I looked at the cages. I looked back at the birds. I looked at the cages, and again back at the birds. Such a hard decision. Why? I had just spent five hours cleaning an elderly couple’s home. I had money in my purse. Yes, today was the day! I just couldn’t leave these birdies there.
So, I picked a cage and a few other things, waited for my birdies to be put in their travel box, and headed home with a smile on my face.
Okay, so Rebecca was not too happy. My mom doesn’t like birds, either. But, my dad was so excited to meet them. He likes birds! Brought back memories of Pete the bird he had as a child.
They seem pretty happy to be here! I love them bunches. Hope is taking a nap, and Charity is posing.
