Saturday was pretty great. Saturday night I called her daddy so she could talk to him on the phone. She just cried. :(

I gave her lots of cuddles. When it came time for bed, I put her on her cage. I couldn't get her in, and she doesn't really leave her cage, so didn't force the issue. I think she must have been playing with a bead because the next thing I heard was a plop, and then her little feat walking on the wood floor. I went to the top of the stairs to look down. She was walking in circles at the foot of the steps.

I called, "C'mon Sadie! C'mere!!!" She kept fluttering her wings, walking in circles, trying to figure out how to come up. Finally she jumped to the first step. "YAY!!! GOOD GIRL! C'MON SADIE!!!" And on to the second... and on and on. She was *so* proud when she got to me at the top!! :)

I have a little basket. She's pretty afraid of it, but I covered it with the sweater I'd been wearing all day (that she'd been standing on), and let her sleep on the basket next to me in bed.

Sunday, well, Sunday Sadie was *pissed.* She missed her daddy like it was nobody's business and she wanted everyone to know it. There was no holding her, no cuddles. She nipped quite a bit. Finally before bed I called her daddy again so she could talk to him. She listened and listened... and when he got off the phone, she started crying and calling for him. She flew off of her cage onto my shoulder to walk around looking for him.

I felt so bad... I let her sleep on the basket next to me again. Since she's a naked little chicken-girl I found a heating pad to put under the sweater so she could stay warm while perched there at night. She slept very well. So did I :)

I feel like making a bumper sticker that says, "Plucked is beautiful, too." My gorgeous little Sadie-girl...

For the first time in the past six months, I so looked forward to going home today to see my little buddy. :)

I've been following you the last few months, and praying whenever I've thought of you.

I'm glad you ahve a bird again, and that you seem, at least, to be better than you've been.

So much of what you've described about your emotions, about disappearing, fits me. It's almost scary, almost.

I hope Sadie is doing better. She sounds like such a sweet girl. :)

Did you see the youtube videos of the crying baby birds?

Oh yes, they cry.

Sadie cried Saturday night because she slept alone and in a new place. Poor baby...
